Medical sales recruiter extraordinaire Peggy McKee has developed a series of videos that should be a must-watch for anyone trying to start a career as a pharmaceutical sales representive, technical sales specialist or any kind of sales position in the life sciences field.
One of Peggy’s tips for landing a sales job is that developing a 30/60/90-day business plan for your first three months on the job will get the attention of hiring managers and show them that you know what it will take to be a success in the field. By doing your homework, you’ll show them that you understand the job, understand your weaknesses — and are willing to work on them, have the ability to plan and set goals, and are willing to go above and beyond to try to close a deal. Take a look — maybe a 30/60/90 plan can help you stand out from the crowd in interviews for non-sales roles as well.
