Pros: autonomy, networking, collaboration
Cons: pull numbers through non-direct reports
I typically spend my day reaching out to my public health contacts. Much of this is spent in health officials offices, on the road, and doing emails and phone calls when I can steal some time in between calls or before/after my work day. I work to connect the public health officials together on the idea of utilizing FluMist to help reach their goals of maximizing immunization rates. I enjoy my customers as they often have passion for public health, and for protecting children against flu. I share their passion, and strive to ensure we work together to reach our mutually beneficial goals.
Management is terrific. They give my the tools I need to succeed, and allow me to target my accounts, and call on who I decide will help move the business. I enjoy doing ride alongs with my co-workers as I strive to encourage them to sell more into the public health realm. I truly enjoy my job, as I am working to help protect people from a vaccine-preventable yet still life-threatening disease.
