Medical sales jobs are categorized into pharmaceutical sales, medical device sales, medical equipment sales, and more. There are all different types of medical sales jobs, including multi-million dollar consultative sales, small, quick transactional sales, inside sales and outside sales.
Depending on a person’s strengths, one type of medical sales job may be better than the other. However, it goes without saying that all medical sales reps must be able to sell. They should understand their product inside and out, be able to answer questions and explain the benefits. Additionally, all people seeking a career in medical sales need to have excellent interpersonal skills as building relationships are the foundation of each sale.
To work in medical sales, candidates usually need at least a bachelor’s degree. Business and life sciences are preferred degrees, but some companies will accept applicants with business-to-business sales backgrounds. Compensation varies greatly, as a large portion of a medical sales representative’s paycheck is commission-based.
