Tell me a little about your background?

I graduated with a B.S. in biomedical science and chemistry. I spent 2-3 years obtaining sales experience in various fields in which I excelled in all.

Why were you interested in Medical Sales? What drew you to this industry?

I am a money driven individual and from my research the medical industry is a very lucrative field.

How long did you try to get into the industry? What was that experience like?

I googled where the different medical company’s office would be and walked in without a scheduled interview, confident in myself because of the experience I had in my other sales jobs, this was an easy process.

How did you learn about Medical Sales College?

A former MSC graduate who works for Nuvasive Spine told me about the college.

Did you have any fears about attending the School? What were they?

Yes, anyone who puts 10k down on any investment, knows that there is always a risk of not succeeding.

What ultimately made you decide to attend the College?

The desire for new experiences.

Describe your experience once you began training with Medical Sales College.

It was extremely fast paced, I felt that it was a sink or swim situation, and you had to be confident that this was what you wanted to do.

Explain what your interview process was like.

It was long and tedious. It consisted of waking up at 5 am and not being home until 6 pm, they wanted to see if I could handle the hours. (I’ll admit I fell asleep in my boss’s car and all my coworkers now have a snapshot of me passed out.)

What from your training did you specifically use during the interview process that ultimately helped you land your position?

Confidence.

What is your current job like?

I go to about 8-10 total knee of total hip surgeries a week, I am constantly preparing for surgery

What was the most valuable thing you learned at Medical Sales College/What piece of training do you use the most in your day-to-day activities?

The most valuable thing I learned was instrumentation. Knowing how to turn over trays, signing in trays, and moving trays from one place to another is a large part of my job.

To have a competitive advantage over others who don’t have the training the college gives you.
