Previously In part 1 and part 2 of this article, we looked at the first sections of an effective resume sample for Jane Doe, an experienced pharmaceutical sales representative. This final part reproduces her education and other skills.
The education and other skills for Jane Doe are reproduced below.

This last section of her pharmaceutical sales representative resume is pretty standard but notice that Jane decided to include some specific items in her professional development section which is really used to showcase some other skills of hers. These items of interest include her Toastmasters involvement which highlight Jane's communications skills.
Again, as explained in part 1 and part 2 of this article, this pharmaceutical sales representative resume would work mainly for an experienced rep such as Jane. In fact, this sample was modeled after a real life resume that was used to successfully help a pharmaceutical sales rep with a few years of experience get a promotion to a hospital specialist representative position in one of the most important markets in North America.
For outsiders hoping to break into this field for the first time, a different type of pharmaceutical sales representative resume would be required as described in the chapters on resumes in the book "How To Get A Dream Job In Pharmaceutical Sales - Direct Inside Advice and Guidance from a Sales Manager" .
