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

I loved sales but I wanted a career.

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

I didn’t try to get into the industry before attending because I knew how difficult it was prior.

How did you learn about Medical Sales College?

I learned about Medical Sales College through researching about a career in Medical Device Sales.

What ultimately made you decide to attend the College?

I ultimately decided to attend MSC after about a year of looking into it, talking to past students, and employers.

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

Everyone at MSC was so willing and able to help with all of my questions. They were very hospitable. It is a lot of information in a short amount of time but if you are driven and dedicated to this industry it is worth it.

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?

This is a difficult question because everything that I learned at MSC was valuable. The thing that helped me most land the position was how to network and being able to talk their language.

Please briefly explain your job interview process.

I was interviewing with Stryker, NuVasive, Abbott, and a distributor when I got the offer. It was strenuous and difficult.

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

This industry is so in depth. Everything you learn at MSC just scratches the surface of what you will learn in this unique industry but I couldn’t have broken in without MSC.

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

It is a hard industry to break into. People say this all the time but networking and marketing yourself is by far the thing I wish I would have known how to do prior to attending.
