What is the best way to get into the Pharm sales field?
Is it really as hard as from what I read on the internet? I am currently in outside sales for an Oilfield service company, but this is NOT the type of sales I enjoy, I am more of a people person than what these customers want. I just don't fit in here. My wife wants to move back to her family in Utah. Are there pretty good opportunities in the Pharm Sales Field? Even Medical equipment sales. I have a BS degree in Industrial Technology. I am also a Magician and Balloon artist on the side. (If I could do that full time and support a family I would) Bottom line is I love people, I love making people feel good and happy, and I really love helping people. I relate better to women than men, I think that is why the oilfield enviro is not working well for me. Just hoping that perhaps some Pharm Reps out there can help point me in a positive direction, or perhaps they can tell me if I would be a good fit for such a position.
