Set your own Direction as a Pharmacuetical Representative. ?

If there is one job in the industry of medicine that allows you to exercise the most sales skills with the most room for compensation, it is as a pharmaceutical representative. The job of the pharmaceutical rep is simply to sell the products of the parent company to doctors who will use them and also to expound upon the benefits of the company brand over its competitors so that doctors will prescribe it more. Competition in the industry of medicine is extremely harsh because there are not many competitors, and so when a competitor makes a drug that could be used in place of another, that company will often experience drastic drops in profitability. The pharmaceutical rep has the job of keeping profits up by doing what ever it takes to keep doctors using the drugs of the company. The pharmaceutical rep has a lot of freedom in doing his or her job. They are often given expense budgets that they can use at their discretion to woo doctors. This money often takes the form of free lunches for office staff and doctors, buying gifts for medical professionals and even vacations for high profile doctors. The pharmaceutical industry is a very free profession, as none of this is illegal or even unethical. The pharmaceutical rep has the most room to use his or her ingenuity to create a career for him or herself. The downside to this type of job is that it is mostly commission, meaning there is a very minimal fixed salary that a pharmaceutical rep is promised, if there is any at all. After a certain level, the jobs become commission based completely, but it is often hard to ramp up to a sales list where this becomes feasible. A pharmaceutical rep usually needs training in the products of the company and in sales in general; however, it is much better if you come to the pharmaceutical company with sales training in advance. Top pharmaceutical reps can earn up to $250,000 a year, all on commission. The minimum salary for beginning pharmaceutical reps is somewhere in the neighborhood of $20-$25,000.
