Tell me a little about your background?

I am 22 years old, a recent graduate from the University of Cincinnati and the ORT class in Denver Colorado. I have 2 older brothers, one that lives in New York and one that lives in downtown Philly. I love reading, traveling and spending time with my family.

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

I had a personal experience dealing with 5 knee surgeries. I took interest in a field involving medicine and surgeons and the new technologies in today’s medical world. It all made a perfect fit for me.

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

I didn’t ever try to apply, I talked to a lot of reps who had been in the industry and they all gave me the response “get your foot in the door” and this was the best decision for me.

What ultimately made you decide to attend the College?

I was referred to the school by a friend and it seemed like the perfect way to get into medical sales.

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

It was an amazing experience. It gave me the foundation of what this industry is all about and I learned so much.

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?

Be the expert on your information, be confident. Always remember that if anything goes wrong in the case- it is YOUR FAULT!

Please briefly explain your job interview process.

It was a crazy process. I launched my profile and I was very lucky to have had a lot of action from employers right away. I made sure that I checked my email frequently and I was always answering my phone when I had the chance. It was a fun process because it went smooth. I had the opportunity to meet with the president of the company I am now working for and it was the best experience of all. I wouldn’t have had the confidence going into the interview without the help of Scott and the placement coordinators. Medical sales college gave me an incredible boost of confidence.

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

I wouldn’t have the knowledge and confidence that I have today with the interviewing process and the conversations about the industry in general without attending Medical Sales College. It is exactly what I was looking for and it gave me the foundation to dive right into this industry. If someone is looking for a career in this field, Medical sales college is the BEST option. I truly would not have been able to get into the industry without it.

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

I don’t wish I had known anything. I am glad I had a reference going into the school of what it was about and I am glad that I had DC (my professor) he helped prepare us for what the industry is all about. As I begin my career I am sure I will find out more about myself and my ability I have in the industry but there is nothing I wish I knew more of, I have a great foundation because of Medical Sales College. THANK YOU!
