Every body has to learn!

Unfortunately, the day of the ‘Rookie’ Medical Sales Rep has gone.

This is very apparent in current times when Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Companies are recruiting.

3 years ago it was sufficient to have a Medical or Life Science Degree and a Medical Sales course.


A Nursing qualification with some general sales experience eg – Retail

NOT SO anymore!

Now, to apply for a job in Medical Sales, the following is ESSENTIAL criteria –

  • Life Science/Medical or Nursing degree
  • A minimum of 2 years Medical Sales experience
  • This experience MUST be in Ireland as contacts in another county are of no benefit if applying for a Medical Sales job in Ireland
  • Exposure and relationships pre established with Key Opinion Leaders in the specific field eg – Diabetes
  • Full flexibility to cover a territory – typically a Provence as is typical in Medical Device Sales
  • A full and clean, manual driving license
  • A wardrobe with polished, professional and highly corporate clothes and shoes!
  • A stunning appearance and presence! – (superficial, yes, but true nonetheless)
  • Highly Computer literate
  • Outstanding Presentation skills

This is today’s Medical Sales market when seeking a Medical Sales job and highlights that the day of the ‘Rookie’ Medical Sales Rep has gone.
