How long have you been working for this organisation?
Position title and short job description:
Medical Representative. I visit GP’s and pharmacists with the aim of promoting pharmaceuticals.
Working highlight so far:
Aside from the travel, I work with fun, energetic people which is awesome, and I get to discuss pharmacology and physiology with people who are as passionate as I am. I have learnt so much, not just about science, but also about sales and business.
An area in which you have needed assistance:
Sales skills and effective questioning to discover information from customers who aren't very forthcoming.
What do you intend to do in the future?
I don’t really have any idea, but I love pharmaceuticals and so I’m sure when I learn more I’ll find a world of possibilities.
#1 tip for current students studying your course:
If you don’t really know what career your looking for, follow the subjects you like and talk to people in the industry and get a good idea of the career opportunities open to you. Think realistically about what you want out of a job and whether the pro’s and con’s are what you want out of a career.
