I utilized the NAPSR and they helped me with my pharmaceutical sales career. I took their CNPR Training program and it was very comprehensive with pharmacology and medical knowledge that I use everyday in my pharmaceutical sales job. I work for Merck and love my job. So I would recommend them, I hope this helps.

I work for Sanofi-Aventis Pharmaceuticals and found this job after I received my CNPR Training through the NAPSR. For me it was important to get myself educated about pharmacology, the healthcare industry, managed care, medical terminology, etc. I know the training gave me the confidence and the skills sets when interviewing with Sanofi. The NAPSR is great, thanks again to them and good luck to aspiring candidates.

I have been a pharmaceutical sales rep for over 7 years. I know my district manager likes to interview candidates who come from the NAPSR entry level training. I recommend the NAPSR CNPR program to anyone who asks me about breaking into pharmaceutical sales. Candidates really do not understand how important it is to understand pharmacology and the healthcare industry. I am trying to start a local network group in Denver, any pharmaceutical reps interested please email my profile email. Look forward to hearing from you. Brenda

I work for Merck and I know of 3 reps who work for us who would be interested in joining a local pharmaceutical sales rep networking group in Denver. I will try to get your email. I also recommend the NAPSR. I know Merck recommends the NAPSR CNPR Training to all its newcomers. I had my sister, who is graduating this December from Cornell, enroll in the NAPSR CNPR Training.

We have all completed the CNPR Training offered by the NAPSR. I just talked to 2 others today and they are pretty close to getting hired with Novartis and a third person is close to gettin on with Dey Pharmaceticals. Your help will be appreciated.

I work for Eli Lilly and we recently hired several CNPR Graduates. I know several of them would be willing to sell their used NAPSRx Training Manuals. Some are 2007 and others 2008. Email me if you want to purchase any of them at jst_lilly@yahoo.com

I bought a membership but requested a full refund. The reason: the study guide is full of grammatical and geological errors.

I'm going to school right now. My professor would like me to interview a pharmaceutical sales rep as a homework assignment. I just have a few questions to ask A. If you were starting all over again, would you choose to enter this profession? Why or why not?
B. What about college most prepared you for this career?
C. What skills are most valuable to a person in this profession? How did you attain these skills?
D. What advice do you have for freshmen college students who are preparing for this profession?

Hi. I found what you wrote and although I´m not in your area I thought I´d give it a shot.

I am a native NYer who has been living in Cancun, Mexico for 15 years. I´m making the big move back to the states in July and I would love to get into pharmaceutical sales. I am a closer selling vacation ownership for many years. I have been all over career builders and monster sites and nothing doing. I would so appreciate any advice as to how to get a foot in the door.

I am with you! I have been doing sales for about two years now since I graduated college but trying all the while to get into pharmaceutical sales. I know it is very lucrative and therefore very competitive. I just learned through this forum about the certification that most people recommend. I am going to purchase the online package (it is $240) and study in my off time and then take the test online. I figure it is worth a shot especially for just $240. I am welcome to any other advice as well!

I have 11 yrs of pharmaceutical sales experience from the Philippines. I worked for Eli Lilly Inc. and Synthelabo and a consistent top sales performer. I came to the US in 2001 and worked in 3 healthcare facilities.

Now I would like to go back to pharmaceutical sales career and received an email regarding NAPSR in response to my job application. I was encouraged to get certified and just ordered my manuals today.

Good luck to all of those who would like to venture their career in this field and I also look forward that the opportunity will one day be on my doorstep since it is my goal to work with a dynamic sales force, to consider a new challenge and use my scientific background and sales ability in a fast paced sales environment, to make a positive impact in the health of millions of people and enhance their quality of lives.

I have been looking into getting the Pharmaceutical sales, and have done research. I do not work for NAPSR, I just speak what I have found. I have mostly good stuff about NAPSR, don't know who these guys are that are saying bad things about the company. I checked BBB and they had pretty good record,here is the result for them:
www.dc.bbb.org/report.html?national=Y&compid=205002211
stlouis.bbb.org/WWWRoot/Report.aspx?site=142&bbb=0734&firm=310028639

For those guys that say they work for lily or GSK, why would you use a yahoo or hotmail address?? Do it makes me wonder who is telling the truth here. Next thing is, if NAPSR wasn't up to the industry standard why would more than 200 Universities offer classes and uses NAPSR manuals? Again, I am just stating what I hear and what I found online.

I cannot thank the NAPSR enough as they helped me get into a pharmaceutical sales career with Watson Pharmaceuticals. The CNPR program was a factor in not only getting selected for interviews but also leading to my job offer. Thanks to all of the NAPSR staff.

When you get your manuals , Can you please let me know what you think of it. Also, have you tried applying for Lilly yet? Since you worked for Lilly, don't you think stand a good chance from getting hired?

I received my manuals and it is very useful. Though I already have an acquired knowledge of the several aspects of sales from Eli Lilly,, there are updates on FDA regulations and guidelines which I believe would be of an added information to know. I think it is better to equip myself and get certified because it is would be an advantage. The pharmaceutical companies are members of the NAPSR and most likely would prefer to hire those with NAPSR certificate.

It's worth to purchase the manual and got nothing to loose. Good Luck to you, Al. God bless.

Hi William,

I am a former employee of 28 years with Sanofi-Aventis. Recently relocated from Des plaines, Il. to Forest Pk. Ga The new mega distribution center for the USA.
Unfortunately my family did not want to relocate so I am now looking for a new position. I found an article about you and I need some advise, hopefully to be reinstated with my past employer. I am thinking to apply and get certify as you did, at NAPSR.
Most of the people I knew at the corporate's office at Sanofi-Aventis, have retired and thus I am in need of great advise, so I can go back to this great company of 28 years.

Please advise me about NAPSR. How long did it take you from start to finish, the exam itself.
Do you know the person in charge in sales near my district (Chicago & NW suburbs)?
So I can contact him / her. How did you get hired, what exactly did you do?
Any suggestions is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
My email: vincenzofaraone@yahoo.com

Regards,

Vince

Hi Folks - I am interested in selling my NAPSR book and the exam rights. I purchased the course but decided to stay in financial services. I found the course VERY informative and is a great way for someone looking to break into the field to gain an upper hand.

Please email me at njpilot41473@yahoo.com if you would like to purchase my book (at a good discount) and we can make arrangements. I already checked with the NAPSR and I would just need to let them know the new students name to take the exam.

Have a great day!!!

I just had an interview with Eli Lilly and they did not seem to be impressed when I mentioned NAPSRx and the CNPR. In my opinion the best thing to do is get some B2B experience before applying for a Pharm sales position. I talked to a few recruiters, and they told me the best B2B experience is ADP, Pitney Bowes, Xerox and all other Fortune 500 companies with strong sales training program.. There is not easy way into Pharm Sales.

Francia,
I tell you , it is tough getting in this field. I have friends who are in this business for more than ten years and they couldn't get me in their company. Pharm Sales isn't like what it used to be.Sorry to say but one will be judged by their looks, age. I went through a panel interview and am waiting for Lilly to get back to me. All I can tell you is with the Economy this bad, companies are not hiring as much and they want someone with pharm experience. I was interviewing for an Entry level position, and while waiting talked other candidates (former pharm sales with 4-6 years experience). I thought to myself, this is an entry level position, why are they applying for an entry level. Then I found out they worked for any pharm company, company went though restructuring and was let go. With the tight job available ,they have no other choice but to take anything. What background do you have???

In my opinion the Napsrx and Cnpr will not give you extra edge getting a pharm job. I asked the District manager and friends and thought the program wasn't all that.
Don't waste you money on it.

Make sure you are ready before you do that, I was told that once you go through an interview and don't get hired, you can not re-apply for one year later.So don't waste the chance.

I have the NAPSRX and a few other books I picked up to study. In my Opinion read (Insider's Guide to the World of Pharmaceutical Sales, by Jane Williams) Which is more helpful than the Napsrx. Think about it when you are hired, companies have their own training program so don't expect you do now everything the Napsrx covers. On the other hand the Insider's Guide to the World of Pharmaceutical Sales,shows you how to get an interview and how to answer questions during an interview.

Hi Steve
Thanks for all this info. I used to work for a company that imports product to USA from Domican Republic so I was in charge of their sales and presentation of thie products but probably this is not enough experience. also I worked for one of the largest distributor of medical products in Us Henry Schein. But I only worked there for only 5 months and I wasn't able to acquire the experience need it in this field. I submit an application last night at Eli Lilly for an entry level we 'll see what happens even though I know they are going to call. when did you interview with them? how was it? was it hard. I just the book 3 days to a pharmaceutical sales job interview by Lisa Lane. I will also get the one you recomend.

Francia,
Do you have a 4yr degree? Do you have 10 years working experience (not more than three jobs), If you don't is your GPA higher than 2.75? Its helps that you had sales experience. I have been to different forum and read people complaining about lily. In my opinion Lily is very professional in the hiring process. The next thing you know to look out for a phone screen, which takes about 30 minutes. Don't worry, you will get an email to schedule for a phone screen, they won't just call you and discuss your experince with you. You will have time to prepare for it. Make sure you study a lot of the STAR questions, why you want to work for Lilly, why do you like sales. If you read the book I mentioned, it talks a lot about how to answer those questions. Then after the phone screen it takes another threee weeks, You will get an email if you are invited for a panel interview. Panel interview consist of three people (District manager, recuriter, Sales manager).. They will want to look at your college transcript and ask you about your classes, why you ddn't do so well in some classes. 50%-60% came from the prople I read, so I managed to answer them pretty well.

Francia,

Good to hear that you will go throgh an interview with Lilly, when is it?

Here are the things I recommend you doing.

Study Lilly's website

Know the company, the drugs they produce and what kind

for example Cymbalta for Neurosciense, Know at least five drugs and what they are for.

Here are some of the questions they ask me:

Why do you want to work for Lilly?

What was your great accoplishments?

Study the STAR (you can google it and study it)

Why do you like sales?

What was your GPA?

Why Pharmaceutical sales?

Do you know the role of a Pharm Sales?

Why do you want to leave your company?

Are you willing to relocate?

What are your Strengths and weakness?

What did you not like about your last job?

Are you leader?
