Pharmaceutical Sales Reps
by: Silas Reed





Pharmaceutical sales jobs come within the paradigm of healthcare industry. The pharmaceuticals include many subdivisions like the biopharma, biotech, med delivery etc. it is not too hard to get into this industry but sure requires some qualifications and skills for the entry and for sticking along.

The pharmaceutical sales reps are required to deal with a variety of potential customers and customers. They can vary from pharmacists, doctors, physicians etc. They need to contact the drug stores, the pharmacies, the hospital pharmacies, different nursing homes, variety of therapists and specialists of other kinds.

Specialization can also be there in pharmaceuticals sales rep jobs where the reps are required to contact specific categories of medical professionals like dentists, oncologists, urologists, pediatricians, departments of veterinary sciences, internal medicine etc. another way of their categorization for work is to divide them according to the kind of drugs they would sell.

Pharmaceutical sales work representatives are required to be qualified with a 4 years- bachelor’s degree in any stream but preferably science. Previous experience in sales also counts. The experience could be in any sales sector- it could be business, telecom, consumer services or pharmaceuticals itself. Some companies prefer if the record does not reflect too many job changes.

Again they also check how long have you been sticking along with your previous employment- 12-15 months is often preferred. The experience records should be well documented with information regarding the previous sales that has been made by the potential employee and the track record needs to make you sound successful. For this some tips on resume building could be consulted.

The company that one is going to opt for should be related to the kind of disease or problem you have interest in and some pre-existing knowledge in. A search on the internet should give a fair list of companies who are currently advertising for the vacancies. Information about pharmaceutical sales rep job opportunities are all over the internet.

The applicant needs to screen out some companies among them that offer the kind of job on is looking for. Some may like selling products relating to surgeries, some may like those needed for general physicians, some others may like the supplies of orthopedics or pediatricians or urologists etc.

One could use their social network to land with a job. One could find the company alumni community in a social networking site, strike up a conversation and built a relation so that the person could help the applicant to get introduced to the company. Or one could also approach a pharmacist or therapist, or physician or dentist that one knows well and ask them to introduce one to the pharma rep they know.

Pharmaceutical sales reps can get paid well provided they have the right kind of qualification and experience. The more they make sales and the better they are at reaching the set targets, the more commission would get into their lap. The companies offer benefits such as housing, insurance, travel, vacations etc. but most of all social skills of communication, persuasion etc are needed to build new customer base as well as maintain the old customer relations.
