6-Month Reflection: Insights from Medical Device Sales

Curious about what it’s like to step into the world of Medical Device Sales as a new hire?

As I hit the 6-month mark in this dynamic industry, I wanted to take a moment to share my journey and experiences with you. Previously, I shared my insights at the 3-month mark, and now I'm excited to dive into my 6-month journey.

Here are 5 tips based on my 6-month experience for those of you who are new to this industry:

1. Patience is Crucial: Success doesn't happen overnight. Building strong relationships with accounts and surgeons takes time and dedication. Allow yourself the space to grow and learn from each experience.

2. Value Relationships: While your product matters, your relationships matter even more. A positive rapport with doctors and office staff can significantly impact your success in this field.

3. Prioritize Your Time: Identify high-return accounts and focus your efforts there. Don't waste time on accounts that don't value your services or show genuine interest.

4. Invest in the Future: Take actions today that will yield benefits in the future. Think long-term and strategize for the coming months to ensure sustained success.

5. Balance Work and Rest: Sales can be demanding, with days ranging from intense to more relaxed. Recognize when to push forward and when to take a breather to maintain your productivity and well-being.

Remember, the sales journey is akin to a roller coaster ride, with its highs and lows. Embrace the challenges and victories alike, as they contribute to your growth and development.

Reflecting on my 6-month journey in Medical Device Sales, I've learned valuable lessons about patience, building relationships, time management, and embracing the highs and lows of sales.
