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

The opportunity to get in the OR, the exciting days on your feet, ability to help patients, and the money.

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

About a year.

How did you learn about Medical Sales College?

Friend of a friend.

What ultimately made you decide to attend the College?

I was having no luck applying to positions in the industry because I had no sales experience. I also felt this program would help me move up in a company faster and become more prepared to be successful in the industry.

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

It was a great experience. The instructors were very knowledgeable about the material covered in class and the industry. I became very close with all of my classmates and I feel that could really come in handy down the road when we are all out in the field.

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?

Don't sell yourself short. We were taught that we are a valuable commodity compared to many other applicants, so we should believe that and go into interviews with confidence in all of the training we received at MSC.

Please briefly explain your job interview process.

It was not a very formal one because it is a small company. I met the owner at a coffee shop and he asked me about MSC and what I had learned and he was very impressed and I got a job offer the next day.

Why should someone attend the Medical Sales College if they want this career?

To get an upper hand on the competition trying to get into the medical sales industry.

What do you know now that you wish you had known before entering the industry/attending Medical Sales College?

I would have liked to have all of the information about how to network, and get your name in front of the right people that can get you a job.
