To show you’re a Gilead-level pharma rep, you need a pharmaceutical sales resume that works like Cyclosporine. Yes, you can build relationships with buyers, stay on top of ever-changing regulations, and sell, sell, sell. But how can you convince employers with such a flimsy sheet of paper?
Don’t sweat it.
There’s a clear plan to get the interview. The trick? Steer clear of describing all your past pharma sales job duties. The best practice is to talk about what you’ve achieved. How much revenue did you drive? How many new clients did you win? Use the steps and template below to stand out like GlaxoSmithKline.
