When I think of Phisoderm, it always reminds of my years of working as a Professional Medical Rep – my first ever job that proved to be intellectually stimulating and financially rewarding. Why do I say so?
Back home in Manila, it was not easy to get hired, qualify and work for a reputable, multinational pharmaceutical firm many years ago (I’m not sure how they do it now). There is the tedious elimination process wherein after you got the nod of the panel through that dreadful panel interview, you then move on to go to the classroom training for a couple of months. Through those two months, a lot will get eliminated, and only a few will get hired and move on to on-the-job training. After you pass all of the above, you then become a Professional Medical Rep. You then think, trainings are all behind you now. But no… classroom training continues every week(once a week) when you have to report to the firm’s headquarters. If you don’t call that continuous learning and intellectually stimulating then I don’t know what to call it.
Financially rewarding? Yes, it is and I don’t have to explain further. Any well qualified PMR who had the chance to work for a noted pharmaceutical firm can attest to that.
Now, if you have the will and the brains to keep learning and you love talking to Doctors, then go ahead dive in and be a Med Rep.
