Breaking into Medical Device Sales: A Success Story with Sophia Gonzales

Breaking into Medical Device Sales is tough, with fierce competition and a super intense interview process. Today, we’re excited to introduce Sophia Gonzales, a college senior who landed a job at one of the top medical device companies in the world—before even graduating!

Let's dive into how Sophia's grit and prep work helped her snag her dream job.

Sophia’s Tips:

  1. Networking: Use your connections, whether through LinkedIn or your personal network. Even a friend's mom who works at a company can help you get your foot in the door.
  2. Ask for References: When networking, ask if your contact knows anyone else you should talk to. Turning a cold call into a warm one can seriously boost your chances.
  3. Embrace Discomfort: Every interview and workday brings its own set of challenges. Being okay with discomfort is key to overcoming obstacles consistently.
  4. Work Ethic: Lots of people claim they work hard, but few actually do. Showing real dedication makes you stand out in a competitive field.
  5. Follow-Up: Always follow up with your connections. You never know who they know or if they’re looking to hire someone.

Congrats, Sophia, on your well-deserved success!

Final Thoughts

Sophia's journey is all about breaking barriers and chasing dreams. Even without a degree and despite doubts about her age and experience, she never gave up. Sophia’s commitment and hard work proved she has what it takes to make a big impact in her new role.
