    Peggy has a lot of useful information in this ewebinar. Some of the information can be used for any job search/interview. For example: even before this ewebinar I was using the concept of a ‘brag book’ for some of my interviews without knowing it’s full potential and how to ‘market’ it correctly. Thanks peggy.

    Thank You Peggy,
    I have attended many informational webinars in the past, five years.

    Your company is the first that delivered on what they said they were going to do. Thank You for your integrity. Your product was very informative and I appreciate the time you took to prepare it. I hope we will be talking in the future.

    Peggy,

    Yes, I do want to thank you for all the help you have provided me over the last few years. I did incorporate your advice into my job search strategies. In particular, I began using jobs Indeed when you taught us about it, and I suggested it to my husband as well. I then improved my LinkedIn profile making sure people can easily contact me. Later on I used your preparation kit to get ready for phone interviews and on-site interviews, and noted that I was more confident during those. I also enjoyed learning your tips which you sent as video clips like little nuggets of empowering wisdom, and your ideas about the 30/60/90 plan.

    I am very pleased to share with you that I have now accepted an offer for a new full time faculty position at a medical school. The employer sent me the contract after a phone interview but without conducting an on-site interview (cost savings). They thoroughly evaluated me through my LinkedIn profile which is currently pretty colorful, detailed and interactive. I was not asked to send in reference letters, but I did voluntarily provide all the names of all my past supervisors on my CV. I do not have any knowledge about whether or not they contacted any of them, but I was told that a verification check was conducted (and I did notice a flurry of anonymous LinkedIn viewers during that week).

    Lessons learned:
    For the long-term unemployed: (1) old references are no longer interesting to current recruiters, (2) reasons for losing the last job are not at all interesting, (3) evidence of having kept active, productive, acquired new credentials is very highly rated, and (4) convincing evidence of continued interest in further learning and professional advancement seems to be of paramount importance – candidates should not project any hesitancy or reservations if they want the new role.

    I hope this helps your audience, and I hope that my news means that new opportunities are starting to open up for everybody.

    I will post my new position once all the paperwork goes through.

    Rana

    I want to thank you so much for your services. It literally took less then a month for me to get a job after using your products and putting your advice to work. I was prepared for the interview, had a solid resume and most importantly found ways to go around recruiters which I would not have done. It took a lot of work on my end but the service you provided gave me the stepping stones to get there. I have received a career in medical sales and am thrilled. My wife was wary at first because of the cost, but boy has it payed off.

    Thank you once again.

    I just wanted to say that all of your material has been great. I have been listening to the audio and video coaching. I have also built my resume, cover letter, brag book, 30-60-90 day sales plan, etc based on your advice. I have a few friends that are in the medical device sales field (across the country) and they have received my documents well.

    This is the first time I have approached job-hunting from the networking only side. It is actually much more fulfilling. I feel like I am building relationships with those people and it definitely gives me insight on some of the hidden jobs or the jobs that may become available in the future within various companies. Best of all, I have learned a lot about the varying industries, types of jobs, etc from networking with these people.

    I just wanted to send a quick thank you and I let you know that I am utilizing all of the tools and I am certain my dream job in medical device sales will soon become a reality.

    Thanks for all your insight. Your passion is contagious.

    Peggy, Carl and the rest of Career Confidential Team and fellow members:

    This is my review on the ‘How To get Into Medical Sales’ product I purchased.

    Purchasing the ‘How To Get Into Medical Sales” program was one of the greatest job-related help tools that I have made to date. I have purchased other books and resources from other outlets in the past and the value I received from the HTGIMS program puts every other system I have ever tried to absolute SHAME.

    I come from a Financial Services background and have been wanting to transition into Medical Device Sales for quite sometime now. The problem was that life has a way of easily overwhelming us with so much information coming at us so fast. I would seek out and try to get information in the past on how to make the transition into the Medical Sales field but would get so many different inputs from so many different types of folks that it made the whole process seem way to overwhelming and I literally stayed in a career I did not enjoy for over 5 years! While I was successful with my sales numbers, I was very unhappy with my life and started to lose hope in working in the field I have a passion for (Medical Sales). This program walked me step-by-step on: what to do in chronological order, when to do it, how to say it, how to write it, how to prepare for executing it and how to systematize myself and my approach in my plans of action.

    One week after purchasing the plan I had my first phone interview with one of the largest Medical Device Companies in the world (Stryker). After two phone interview screenings I was directly set up with the Hiring Manager one week later. Out of 400 applicants I was one of FIVE that made it to the face-to=face interview with the Hiring Manager. I beat out candidates that had years of Medical Sales experience. It has been over 5 years since I last applied for a job thus this being the first job application and interview in five years. I would have NEVER made it to so far into the application process had it not been for the step by step approach this program provided me to follow.

    I have four interviews scheduled for next week with other Medical Device Companies and feel I am getting sharper and more confident by the interview. To all of my fellow Career Confidential members that want to get into Medical Sales, this program is not only a ‘should’ buy it type of thing but a ‘buy it IMMEDIATELY!!’ type of thing. I went from being very fearful and depressed about my job search situation to being very confident, happy and extremely excited about where my career is heading. You can’t put a price tag on that type of mental and emotional change.

    Hope that helps guys!
    – Nick
