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

I have always been surrounded by the medical industry, but knew I wanted to be in business. I love the seamless integration of technology and health care. I also know it’s a great career for me because I love moving around, being on my feet, meeting people, and helping others.

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

A few months. I went on about 4 interviews before I realized I was under qualified.

How did you learn about Medical Sales College?

Through a google search “Medical Sales internship”

What ultimately made you decide to attend the College?

I knew I wanted to be in the industry, and most companies require 1-2 years of B2B experience. I did not want to spend 2 years of my life selling things I didn’t care about. After the conference call with Scott, along with reading reviews online and talking to people in the industry, I decided this would be a good decision.

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

Very helpful. I now have a basic foundation and I’m able to have a decent, educated conversation about the industry. I wouldn’t know what I know now without MSC.

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?

Too early to say, but I know that learning the anatomy now would be more difficult. It’s good to start the job with a good amount of knowledge already under my belt.

Please briefly explain your job interview process.

Entire process took about a month. Lots of calls at random times, and lots of times having to follow up to make sure they don’t forget about me. I always had to stay persistent.

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

Because it gives you a head start, and makes it so you’re probably more qualified than 95% of the people you’re competing with for jobs.

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

How impossible it is to get into Spine.
