Are you one of those people who have a healthcare diploma or qualification and still you are struggling to find a job in the healthcare industry? You are one of many!
The ideal way to get into the healthcare industry be it pharmaceuticals, devices, over the counter type medications or doing health promotions is to have the experience of ‘carrying the bag’. ‘Carrying the bag’ means to go from the healthcare professional to another healthcare professional or other clients and sell your products. Being a sales person lays an excellent foundation for many other positions in the healthcare industry that you may be promoted to. If you have not ‘carried the bag’ it may be hard to understand the exact operations of this often complicated and fast paced industry.
At this point you may ask yourself how then do I get into this industry. One way could be – a very good way in fact is to enroll to become a health products sales representative. You can start by doing the knowledge / theoretical modules and then later once you are part of a workplace company you may complete your practical and workplace experience.
