We have a flurry of activity currently within our Medical Sales division and alot of coaching and Medical Sales pre interview tips and preparation being done.
There are a few essential tips to remember when attending for a Medical Sales interview -
Don’t tell me – show me
This is where you give evidence and examples of all you are saying -
Instead of saying my strengths are -
Loyal, hardworking, dedicated and passionate.
You need to say – ‘I am passionate about my work and this has been demonstrated by my last job, where I …………. etc
Giving a list does not make the interviewer remember what you are saying, but backing up what you are saying with examples gives them a picture and is better remembered and more effective
You have 2 ears and 1 mouth, use accordingly –
This is essential in Sales and interviews.
You always need to listen twice as much as you speak.
A stunning 65% of interviewees do not answer the question that was asked which is frustrating for the interviewer.
No matter, how nervous or excited you are at your interview – take your time and listen to the question being asked before you answer.
So, to recap, just remember 2 things before your Sales pitch or Medical sales interview -
Dont tell me – show me
You have 2 ears and 1 mouth – use accordingly
