I keep seeing this ad and have looked into it but I am very skeptical of a $250 fee for training which supposed to give an advantage when searching for a pharma sales rep job. Anyone ever do it? Did it work? Or is it a scam which will not give an advantage but will only pad the wallets of internet scammers?

I obtained my certification through NAPSR via correspondance course. The course is very informative and the membership provides you with excellent resource material. However, I have not found gainful employment in pharma sales yet.

Thanks for your comments. I just received the manual today. After receiving a number of positive stories about the certification, I went ahead and bought it. Hopefully I will be laughing at myself in the near future thinking this was just another scam. Good luck in your new position.

The NAPSRx only trains candidates it will not guarantee you a job in the industry. You must interview for all pharma sales openings. It can only help but it is not like any education in life it comes down to you.

Bill in Saint Louis, Missouri said: I have been a pharmaceutical sales rep with Pfizer for over 3 years and owe my start in the business to the NAPSRx. I obtained my CNPR by correspondence through the NAPSRx right out of college and then found employment with Pfizer. I utilized the NAPSRx Career Center which helped me get quite a few interviews. I finally ended up with Pfizer and just love my job. I recommend the NAPSRx to all individuals who ask me for help on how to break into the business. My sister-in law who lives in Michigan completed her CNPR recently and now works for Eli Lilly in Lansing. Getting trained through the NAPSRx will most definelty help you and provided thorough vocational training.

Bill,

I own & operate a restaurant delivery service in St. Louis. We deliver food from any restaurant that does not offer its own delivery service.

If you ever need help delivering food for a lunch presentation, please call my service, All Restaurants Deliver, and we will do what we can to help you.

The CNPR Training program is the only accredited education program that is available to entry level pharmaceutical sales candidates. I took the course back in 2003 and the NAPSRx CNPR Training is the reason I ended up becoming a pharmaceutical sales rep with Watson Pharmaceuticals. I know do the hiring for reps in over 10 U.S. states and look for the CNPR Training on resumes. I want to interview and hire candidates who have pharmacology training and exposure to the rules and regulations that reps must adhere to. I recommend the CNPR Training to anyone looking to break into a pharma sales career.

If one completes the CNPR training and has a solid sales and management background but only SOME college vs. a completed bachelors degree, does that help or do the pharma companies stick to the degree 'requirement' I see on literally every job listing?

Many of the larger pharma companies look for a 4 year degree but some smaller pharmaceutical companies will consider sales experience over a degree.

I work for Merck and I know they look for a 4 year degree. However, we do have some people who have had long careers in the military or in sales and no degrees who ended up working as pharma reps. I know our company uses the NAPSRx. I recommend their CNPR Training to anyone trying to break into the industry. It is a lot easier for the pharmaceutical companies to get new reps out into the sales field if they already have pharmaceutical sales training.

I just interviewed with Merck and they want to know how much pharmacology and medical education I have completed. Unfortunately, I had none and I am pretty sure that blew my chances with getting to the next interview. Will the CNPR Training get me the pharmacology education that they are looking for?

Hello,
I'm trying to get alligned with biotechnology sales / recruiters. I'm on the fence about a chemistry degree. Don't know much about biotech sales, wondered if you could point me in that direction to at least talk/meet someone who could help me decide. Biochemistry is really an eye opener.
Thanks in advance.
Maureen.

I am very interested in getting into pharma sales, and am considering doing the CNPR training. The question I have for you concerns the day-to-day life for a pharma rep. I am a professional, very friendly and can talk to ANYONE, however I have an awful fear of actually standing up and speaking in front of groups of people. Do you HAVE to give presentations, or does it depend on the rep.? I've worked with some reps, attended ''lunch and learns'', and passed reps in the hall, however that is as far as my experience with them go, so i'd like to learn a little more as far as what they do every day. (I don't waste my time and money if it is not for me) I would appreciate any responses!! Thanks

I am currently enrolled in the CNPR training, and should have it completed prior to the end of Jan. I have 15 years of solid sales and sales management experience, included a couple of years account sales management for B2B sales reps. I would really like to break into and make a career in Pharmaceutical and or medical sales. I've heard it said, you don't have because you don't ask..so would you be willing to help me with some info on getting into Pharmaceutical sales? I don't have a degree, but have some college, and excellent sales awards, certifications in several sales programs, and as stated earlier, am currently enrolled in the CNPR class. My email address is: Tracybible@gmail.com. Thanks in advance for any and all help you can give me.

As the Managing Director of the NAPSR it is time to set the record straight. First of all any negative comments you may see on blogs like this are definitely coming from small organizations that write help books for pharmaceutical sales. It is unfortunate that ignorant people post such outrageous things. The most important facts are that the NAPSR does work with numerous pharmaceutical companies, our CNPR Program is offered at over 300 universities/colleges nationwide, the CNPR Program provides vocational training for those individuals who want to break into a pharmaceutical sales career and the program helps thousands every year. There is no way that major universities and pharmaceutical companies would deal with an association that was bogus. You make up your own mind but if you have questions please do not hesitate to call us. See below for more facts about the NAPSR.
1) The NAPSR has recruitment advertising contracts with numerous pharmaceutical companies. This is true as they seek our members to fill pharmaceutical sales opportunities. They best candidates for them are our members who are experience or trained.
2) The NAPSR CNPR Training program is offered at over 300 major colleges and universities. These colleges would not offer the NAPSR Training course unless it was worthwhile and helpful.
3) The NAPSR has thousands of members who are pharmaceutical sales reps, district managers, regional managers, pharmaceutical sales trainers and HR staffing managers.
4) The NAPSR staff members are involved closely with the industry and appear at many of the national pharmaceutical sales conferences such as: PHARMAFORCE, IQPC, MM & M, etc
5) The NAPSR advisory board members can be found writing articles in Pharmaceutical Representative magazine which circulates to over 70,000 pharmaceutical sales reps and managers.
6) The NAPSR has worked successfully with thousands of individuals over the years, maintains current copyrights on all materials, maintains all c

I just got a new job working for a Austrian based biotech Company that launched an office in Los Angeles. I don't have that much information regarding Biotech at all. I know a lot about Pharmaceutical sales and have great desire for that. Is biotech as good as pharmaceuticals, I'm confused.... Any suggestions.

Dr Orsini,
I just posted my resume this last week on the NAPSR Career Links with four companies hiring in the Tampa, FL area. I am reading a book now called Insights, which is written by a Pharm Rep with over 30 yrs experience. It talks about how to be prepared for the interview, answering questions correctly, and what to expect when you get the break in the field. I purchased it as a down load on line for $25. Keep me posted on how your search goes.
Take Care,
Vera

I have been a teacher for nine years. I have been trying to break into the pharma industry for quite some time. I have had some interviews with pharma companies but can't seem to get to the second interview. However I do have an interview with Pfizer Thursday in Dallas with a manager. What can I do to stand out from so many other candidates? I hear that they like to hire teachers because of their ability to teach and strong work ethic but I am not having much luck.

Thank you,
Windy Englett

I would not do it. I am a pharm rep and as long as you have a 4 year degree and a "brag book" of sales experience you should be good. A great book to get is "Insider's Guide to the World of Pharmaceutical Sales." I read this book from cover and cover and it really helped me in my interviewing. I worked on getting this job for about 2 years before finally getting in. Good luck.

Did you have any prior sales experience? I have some but I have worked the last 20 years for UPS and FedEx. I also keep going to job fairs that claim Pfizer of Lilly will be there only to hear that their recruiters couldn't make it. I think listing pharma companies just teases anyone who goes, then gets to the job fair and is disappointed.
How long did it take to complete the training? Thanks for any more info.

you can complete the online course in aprox 30 days. I have the course I purchased in Jan this year, and didn't take it as I got another job. let me know if you want it and you can have it much cheaper-

Whoever is pushing this CNPR NAPSRx stuff would certainly have more credibility with me if they SPELLED THINGS CORRECTLY! So . . . you KNOW do the hiring? How can you be a business professional and not know the difference between KNOW and NOW? I've seen this exact mistake on other messages as well which makes me think that some of these posts praising a mail-order education system aren't quite right. I know if I was pushing something like this, I'd go pop up some glowing reviews on various message boards, too. Then of course, there's the less desirable alternative, which is that this individual IS ACTUALLY hiring applicants. If that's the case, well . . . at the risk of sounding even more like a jerk, I'll let you draw your own conclusions. I just get so frustrated when I think about all of the people from all over this country that are less qualified and yet make a lot more money than I do. I'm sure right now there's a dude sitting in an office who has difficulty reading words over eight letters long and who makes $80,000 a year. Or maybe he just sits around while the company wastes their money on his salary because he's so adept at creating the illusion of being industrious. Do you people know how many idiots are in the work force sitting on jobs we could have? It's just ridiculous.

I've recruited pharma candidates for the last six years, and I can tell you that the vast majority of learned recruiters are NOT impressed by a NAPSR certificate. In fact, in most cases it's looked at as a sign of a weak candidate who's grasping at straws.

Don't waste your money, just research the job, company and it's products.

DON'T BOTHER with NAPSR, it's a scam. These postings are from Steve or Brad or whomever, they all work for NAPSR and are trying to drum up business. They will do NOTHING for you but take your money. The exam and the book is a complete joke.

I've seen the same postings on other websites. Brad spends his time posting with different names to create the illusion that CNPR is worth something. Talk to people in the industry, they will laugh at this stuff.

Most of our new reps have taken the CNPR course by correspondence.

Hi Megan.

I live in Lexington KY and have 8 years solid sales experience and a bachelor's degree. I am more than willing to complete any additional training or education which would help me in my pursuit of a pharmaceutical sales position. Do you recruit for KY? If not, would you mind to send me their e-mail address. I look forward to hearing from you. My e-mail address is amylynnsou@yahoo.com.

Thanks so much.
