Linked In.

What ultimately made you decide to attend the College?

Initial conversation with Kim Smalley.

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

I had fun for the most part. The hands-on experience with the instruments and available implants was where I learned the most. Tilden is #1.

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?

Ability to learn products and procedures quickly.

Please briefly explain your job interview process.

Two phone calls and an in-person interview. Since I was interviewing with a distributorship I felt as though my interview process may have been slightly easier than most. However, I did have to verbally display my knowledge of the field, anatomy, and products.

Great way to meet others with the same goal while also giving yourself the best chance to find a job in the hardest industry to get a job in.

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

I wish I would have known that Linked In is the key to finding a job. Just be active on Linked In and when opportunities open up it is likely you will get a call.
