Tell me a little about your background?
I graduated from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette with a bachelor’s in marketing. I am a driven individual that is consistently learning from others and pursuing knowledge. I started a small company my freshman year of college to heighten my leadership and self-starter attributes. I then graduated college and began my initial start in real estate. I soon realized how lucrative and how well of a fit medical device sales is for my personality. Shortly after I then began Medical Sales College 1 year after graduating college.
Why were you interested in Medical Sales? What drew you to this industry?
Medical sales from my understanding is a very competitive, self-driven industry that requires persistence and a driven personality. I felt this fit my personality perfectly along with providing others with products that improve daily life for doctors and patients. This interested me instantly and brought me to researching medical device sales.
How long did you try to get into the industry? What was that experience like?
I did not attempt to apply long before attending Medical Sales College.
How did you learn about Medical Sales College?
I was researching the industry extensively on what Medical Sales is and how to enter the industry when I found the Medical Sales College ad. This led me to the website where I found everything I needed to understand what it is and why I should attend. Along with this, I was able to find testimonials to help better ease my feelings on the idea of attending more schooling.
Did you have any fears about attending the School? What were they?
Honestly, my fears included if this school was a scam, could it help at all, what could they teach and why should I attend a school to start a career that does not require it? After attending school and finishing the process with a job two weeks after graduation, it was clear to me how much this really helped. Not to mention how much MSC teaches in such a short period that I feel is essential for Medical Device Sales.
What ultimately made you decide to attend the College?
Ultimately what pushed me to attend MSC was being at a crossroads in my life deciding my career path. I would either pursue a career that I did not enjoy, or take a risk and start my lifelong career that I knew I would always enjoy and be motivated toward. At this point this was obvious to pursue Medical Sales College to enter the medical device industry.
Describe your experience once you began training with Medical Sales College.
The first day at Medical Sales College relieved all my uncertainties. After a week, it was clear that there was going to be an extensive amount of information in the course. This was more exciting than intimidating.
Explain what your interview process was like.
During MSC we were taught what interviews were like, what was needed to succeed and how to respond to questions. The teachers at Medical Sales College couldn’t have been more helpful on this subject. I did exactly what was taught and the interview went great. I applied and was immediately prompted to perform tests. Soon after I was then asked to attend an informal interview and lastly an interview with the owner of the company, the VP and the manager.
What from your training did you specifically use during the interview process that ultimately helped you land your position?
The training I used included everything that was taught at MSC including a 5 minute presentation, an extensive business plan and a full understanding of the company.
Why should someone attend the Medical Sales College if they want this career?
I think a better question would be why shouldn’t you attend Medical Sales College? Personally, I believe this should be a mandatory course to enter the medical sales field in the future. Learning is expedited and focused on things that are important in every since. If you would like to enter the medical device industry, then Medical Sales College should be highly considered.
