Pros: flexible hours and meeting new people every day
Cons: traveling in bad weather
My current employer has allowed me to collaborate with physicians and medical sales representatives as well as use my experience as a nuclear medicine technologist, in the field every day. The hardest part of my job is attempting access to difficult accounts. Honestly, that's probably the most rewarding too. I love the challenge that this presents because I don't take the rejection personally because I understand the products I have ARE highly regarded. It makes me work so much harder and the result is a greater, stronger relationship with that account, with confirmed sampling access within weeks. My typical day consists of calling on at least 10 accounts, sampling pharmaceuticals, providing managed market information, access and affordability information as well as savings cards. My goal is to inform accounts that our products are affordable and clarify that many of the top insurance plans, that their patients have, offer our drug at an affordable cost.
