The internet is a great resource for figuring out what I want to do with my life. See what I found:
You’re all after one thing, money! Please dont give me a lame excuse of pride and love for the industry. Ive worked as Marketing Director for 3 years for a well established pharmacy chain (private owned). The things you need to know and I hope will appreciate are simple yet often over looked.
First off, dont be cheap at all.
Follow my steps and I give you my word you will get a job in the pharmaceutical industry.
Step one 1) If you created your own resume, throw it in the garbage. I dont care if its made of gold. Go get yourself a professional.
Need to borrow the money, than borrow it!
Step 2) Do not listen to what he or she said.
You have your qualifications, make them work for you and also MENTION in your resume any sports activities but dont be fake.
Step 3) Go directly to the Pharmaceutical Company website, not some Recruiter.
Step 4)Kiss Ass. This is a last resort but will at times get you places. Go to the Doctors office, and be flirty with the girl working there and ask her if you could see the pharmaceutical cards. If your a girl than say a sad story , and than copy those cards or write town 10-15 emails and email those reps.
Step 5) Dont spend money on CNPRX whatever its called. If you dont have the experience to begin with , do you think that will get it for you. That is like the army hiring a sniper who took a 3 month shooting course but never served or practiced before that! ( not one of my best examples) .
Step 6) Be confident, your the shi#. Dont put yourself down and yes as dumb as this may sound to some of you smart ass’s but workout, run, do pushups, eat healthy, that makes you feel better allllll together.
Listen , i really wish all of you luck and remember , you can get into anything but never aim for the impossible, God created all of us different with different skills, but such a job , it is doable.
