Tell me a little about your background?
I am a 25-year-old, African American woman that’s driven by competition. I enjoy competing with others and most of all, competing with myself. Not only am I motivated to be the best at what I do, I am motivated to outdo myself whenever I get the chance. I am also motivated by the thrill of the chase, the challenge of the hunt, and the satisfaction of the kill. I enjoy prospecting for new clients, learning everything I can about a prospective client, developing the perfect pitch, and then closing the deal.
Why were you interested in Medical Sales? What drew you to this industry?
I was interested in medical sales because loved the idea of working side by side with an orthopedic surgeon, helping them increase the quality of life for our patients.
How did you learn about Medical Sales College?
I learned about the Medical Sales College on Google.
What ultimately made you decide to attend the College?
I decided to go to MSC based on the high placement rates that were on the MSC website.
Describe your experience once you began training with Medical Sales College.
I had a phenomenal training experience at MSC. I am really proud of making the decision to invest my time and money to attend the Medical Sales College’s 340-hour training program in Orthopedic Reconstruction and Trauma. I learned so much from this experience – the Medical Sales College gave me a competitive advantage, as well as the tools and essential knowledge I needed to enter into the medical device industry head on.
Explain what your interview process was like.
My interview process took about 2 and ½ months after I graduated from MSC. Then I was contacted by a territory manager named Houston Jimenez. We scheduled an interview and I got the job. Apparently, one of the sales reps, Brian Shaw (an MSC graduate in Colorado) saw my profile on ZeroFee and told Houston Jimenez to hire me.
What from your training did you specifically use during the interview process that ultimately helped you land your position?
At MSC, we were asked prepare for a final presentation for a product of our choice. I had never presented to a large group of people that I was unfamiliar with. Now, I can say that I am very comfortable and enjoy presenting to people. This came in handy because during my job interview for my current position, I was "presenting myself" in a boardroom office getting interviewed by three managers at the same time.
What is your current job like?
My current job is great, I am now shadowing Brian Shaw, and other sales reps that work within the company. Our company has a full line of orthopedics with biologics, they hired me to specialize and grow the Houston territory in Foot & Ankle.
Why should someone attend the Medical Sales College if they want this career?
They should attend MSC to get the best education, training, and networking to prepare them for the world of medical sales.
What do you know now that you wish you had known before entering the industry/attending Medical Sales College?
I believe the Medical Sales College has fully prepared me for this world.
