Three Reasons to Consider a Career in Medical Sales
Maybe you’re a young person working your way through school and you’re about to choose a career path that fits your personality and long-term plans. Or maybe you’re a mid-career employee and you’re ready for a change. Maybe your current path isn’t working and you’re looking for a new direction, or maybe you’ve taken your career as far as it can go and it’s time to turn your attention to the next chapter of your life. No matter how you got here, you’re looking for a way to move forward. And a career in medical sales may provide the answers you need. Here are three reasons to explore this option. 

Autonomy and Flexibility

In the medical sales field, salaries can be considerable (especially after accounting for commissions and bonuses). But in addition to this obvious benefit, the role of a medical sales rep offers a level of freedom and flexibility not found in many office-based roles or desk jobs. As a representative of your medical equipment or device company, you’ll be on the road making extensive trips to hospitals and clinical facilities, and you’ll manage your own schedule most of the time. You’ll work as often and earn as much as you choose, and you’ll move from each engagement to the next at your own pace. If you need to schedule meetings around competing personal demands, you can, and you rarely need to compromise. 

Relationship Building 

During the course of your career in medical sales, you’ll establish long-term relationships with the patients you help and the providers you support. There are few things more rewarding than standing outside the OR guiding a surgeon as she implants a device that can save a patient’s life. And as a sales rep, you may be providing the tools and prosthetics that can reduce pain or improve mobility for countless patients who would otherwise face limitations. Though you may or may not ever meet these patients in person, you’ll know that your job makes a difference. 

Witnessing Advances

We live an age of rapid and astonishing advances in medical tools and clinical capabilities. Healthcare technology — from diagnostic and imaging equipment to medical records management — is advancing by leaps and bounds, and the clinical resources doctors rely on today will be unrecognizable tomorrow. Join the field of medical sales and you’ll witness these advances first-hand.
