Bill - National Instrument Product Manager / Pathtech

What did you do before you started your sales career?

I was a Scientific Researcher.

What was your first sales job and how did you land it?

I worked for a Scientific Instrumentation company as their Victorian Territory Manager.

Explain what you like about your current sales position.

I like my work colleagues and when big sales come in.

Tell us what you don’t like about sales jobs.

I’m not keen on the extensive travel component of my particular sales role.

What are some common sales myths in the Medical & Scientific industry?

It is always about relationships you have with key customers and not price.

What career advice would you give a graduate or person thinking of a career change so they could find sales vacancies in your industry?

Become involved in the industry as a customer / user first. This will allow them to have an understanding of what they will be selling and to whom.

Is there any other career advice you would give to someone thinking about sales jobs and starting a sales career? 

Be hungry for success!

 


Kathryn – Account Manager / Pathtech

What did you do before you started your sales career?

I worked on the bench in scienctific laboratories - academic and contract research laboratories based in Australia and abroad…

What was your first sales job and how did you land it?

It was an Internal Sales role via a recruitment company with a scientific supplier - answering phone calls, processing quotes - internal support.

Explain what you like about your current sales position.

The interaction with the customers and the constant challenges - every day is a different day.  Sales for me, has all been about kicking my own butt - what you put in you get back. It’s the greatest rush when you are handed the purchase order.

Tell us what you don’t like about sales jobs.

The attitude of some customers in the scientific industry – A “Ph.d” qaulification still means a great deal over and above technical experience.

What are some common sales myths in the Medical & Scientific industry?

The lowest price wins every time. It isn’t true.

What career advice would you give a graduate or person thinking of a career change so they could find sales vacancies in your industry?

Sales is a lifestyle, so be prepared.  A scientific sales career was always my goal and I did the hard yards on the bench and then did a Grad Certificate in Business (Marketing) while still working on the bench.

Technical experience counts for eveything - you need to be able to understand the rigours of your customers as well as the products & services to provide a solution. Talk to people who are involved in sales already and are successful, these people offer an invaluable insight into what sales is all about and how much hard work it takes. 

Is there any other career advice you would give to someone thinking about sales jobs and starting a sales career? 

If your customer achieves what they want, you will ultimately achieve what you want.  Invest yourself in the sales process and be involved with your customers.

 


John - NSW Territory Manager / Pathtech

What did you do before you started your sales career?

I was a Lab Technician in Pharmaceutical and Agricultural Research.

What was your first sales job and how did you land it?

Telemarketing – Selling Advertising space in a City magazine.

Explain what you like about your current sales position.

I am in control of my own time and my own results due to my actions and preparation.

Tell us what you don’t like about sales jobs.

Nothing.

What are some common sales myths in the Medical & Scientific industry?

“It is a very competitive industry” – Each company has their own niche product that they are proud to sell. There is no such thing as over saturation, opportunities can be uncovered all the time creating your own niche.

What career advice would you give a graduate or person thinking of a career change so they could find sales vacancies in your industry?

Be persistent, be resilient and be patient. Read books, get educated and get experience in any way necessary for you to be able to know the trade before even applying for the position.

Is there any other career advice you would give to someone thinking about sales jobs and starting a sales career? 

You just need to go through the basics over and over and over and over again. The basics are what gives you the skills to make the big numbers. And remember, Sales is a numbers game. The more customers you see, the more opportunities you uncover.

If you really want to be in sales, have a “Do what it takes” attitude, then invest in a sales training course.
