In a Medical Sales Job Search? Consider Hiring a Career Coach

peggy-redshirt158X210Question:  What can a career coach do for you?
Answer:  Get you HIRED—even in the face of big obstacles

Learn more about Career Coaching here:  http://www.phcconsulting.com/WordPress/career-coaching/

I wanted to share with you a few stories of the huge rewards others have experienced from using a career coach (me):

  • An executive told his wife to get ready for cutbacks, because he’d been searching for months and it looked like he would have to take a pay cut to get hired.  Within 24 hours of taking my advice, he found a great job at a $7B company within minutes of his house.  He didn’t even know the company was there!  His offer was equal to what he made before. 
  • A tremendously talented woman could not get past the first interview with any company.  Her confidence was taking a beating.  Just a few minutes into our conversation, I realized she was saying things in the interview that made her seem weak.  I showed her how to speak from a position of strength, and she got a wonderful job offer in her next interview.
  • One COO wasn’t using his network effectively—I had him send one simple email out to 600 people on his list and he got 50 responses with viable options.  He was THRILLED.

How a 306090 Interview Plan Got Me the Sales Job!

Sales-Job-Interview (2)I wanted to share this with you–this job seeker used a 306090 Day Interview Plan and got the sales job on the spot.  They didn’t even interview the other candidate.

Peggy, these are the kind of emails you love! Just last weekend, I bought your 30-60-90 Day Sales Plan for an upcoming interview this past week. I appreciate your encouragement, assistance, tips and template. The sales position was down to two final candidates. I was the first to interview.

For the interview, I was to make a presentation, present a 90 day sales plan, and have a sales call scripted out. I was pretty set on the presentation and sales script, but I was a little nervous about the 90 Day sales plan. I found your site online, and was convinced it was going to help me.

Well, Peggy, it more than worked! They were so blown away by the interview, the 90 day sales plan and the vision I demonstrated, they made me an offer right there on the spot. They didn’t even interview the second finalist.

The CEO said, “This is the exact vision and energy I want for my company.”

I don’t think I would have made the impression that I did, if it wasn’t for your guidance.

Thank you again for our brief, but very effective encounter!

Wes R.

If you want to make an impression like this and get the job in your next sales job interview, get my 30-60-90-Day Sales Plan now.

How to Get Into Medical Device Sales

Caucasian blond businesswoman in suit on white isolated backgrouMedical device sales is one of the highest-paid (see medical sales salaries), highest-prestige sales categories.  This means that competition for these jobs are fierce.  Does it mean you can’t get into medical devices from some other field?  Of course not.  You absolutely can…if you know these 4 things:

1.  Be sure you understand the medical device sales process and cycle.

First, you have to understand the job–read career overviews of medical device sales, and study the typical sales process.  Go to your network and LinkedIn to find people in medical devices to ask for coffee or lunch and ask a few questions (informational interview).  Go back to your network and find someone in medical devices to job shadow for the day, or ride-along with to see what a day in the life of a medical device sales rep is really like.  Figure out how to deal with doctors and surgeons (surgeons are a breed unto their own–be ready).

2.  Have the most current knowledge of what’s going on in the medical devices arena–job market and companies.

Download my list of the Top 100 Medical Companies (it has a section devoted to medical device companies). And look for medical device news:  DeviceSpace is a good source to start with. 

3.  Know what you need to bring to the table.

A medical device sales rep is positioned as the expert on new products and technologies for surgeons, specialists, and executive-level clients in hospital administration, and is often required to be present during procedures in operating rooms.  So not only do you need a scientific background with a strong understanding of mechanical concepts and technology, you’ll need high-level selling skills, high energy, and probably a strong stomach!

If you see that you’re lacking in some area, address it–take classes, read books (SPIN Selling is a great one), or try a field preceptorship (a.k.a. job shadowing or a ride-along) to enhance your knowledge of the job.  Taking this initiative communicates that you are willing to do what it takes to be successful.  (If your problem is a weak stomach, you probably just want to choose another field–maybe healthcare IT.)

4.  Know what it takes to be a stand-out candidate.

  • Find a career coach to hone your skills as a candidate and interviewee.  An objective, experienced career coach can save you a lot of time and frustration in your job search.  Take advantage of it.

There are hundreds of articles on this blog for reading about how to land a job in medical sales, and I encourage you to read them.  The more research you can do into career field you’d like to transition into, the better.  It might not make sense to some people to do that much work before you even get the job, but actually, that’s what’s going to make it more likely that you get the job you want.

Good luck.
