The Medical Sales Interview

Sunday, April 26th, 2009

Submitting your CV is the first step in the search for employment

A good CV should secure an interview

An interview is YOUR opportunity, over thirty or forty minutes, to sell YOURSELF and promote YOURSELF to the interviewer as the IDEAL candidate for the job

Preparation is the key to a successful interview

Preparation:

1. Consult the company website

2. Consult MIMS

3. Consult the IRISH MEDICAL DIRECTORY

4. Talk to your Recruitment Consultant

5. Consider doing a Pre Interview Training Seminar

PART ONE – BEFORE THE INTERVIEW

1.  Chose your clothes carefully

2. Make sure you know the way to the appointed venue

3. On the day leave home in plenty of time and aim to arrive 15 minutes early

4.  In the minutes before the interview read through your CV one last time and predict possible questions

5.  Drink a glass of water to keep your throat moist

6.  Practice deep breathing and relax

Remember the interviewer is not a firing squad!

This is your opportunity to shine so shine!
