Wow! I've had some great success with this book! I've got something in the works with three major pharmaceutical companies who have open positions they are looking to fill in the short term. Having someone on the inside scoping things out really makes a difference. With this book, I've gotten some information that I would never have ordinarily been able to find on my own or on the web.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Lisa's book is exactly what I needed from the very beginning of my Pharmaceutical Search, had I had this book a month ago I would have landed at least 2 of the jobs that I interviewed with, with top 5 Pharmaceutical companies. The questions that were asked in my interviews are exactly the questions that were listed in her book, and unfortuneatly I did not have the correct answers then, but I sure do now. I truly beleive if I follow her step by step instructions. That landing another interview will not even be a question. I'm glad that I purchased it, it made all the difference in the world.

I've been trying to break into medical sales for about 3 months and have secured an interview at a major pharmaceutical company. I did not buy or use this book to get interviews, but the section regarding the likely interview questions and the 'right' answers were very helpful. When you haven't worked in pharmaceuticals, its hard to anticipate what a hiring manager is going to ask and what they want your answers to be. I think I'm going into this interview much better prepared than I would have been otherwise, especially since she gives helpful hints on what a day in the life of a pharmaceutical rep is like. The book covers all of the bases in the how to interview department. It even included a section on how to sell the interviewer a "pen" which is is usually required in these interviews. Also, a great section on situational interview questions and answers and a great comprehensive list of pharmaceutical companies and contact information. I highly recommend this excellent resource!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I saw an article in the LA Times that quoted the author of this book. She gave some great advice in just a few words so I decided to hunt for this book (which was also quoted in the article...thats how I found it) Anyway....after a long search, I finally found the book and ordered it. I must say, the book is full of great information. The tone of the book is very motivating and it is very interesting and fun to read. She gives a lot of her own experiences and insight. I am now well prepared and have alot of extra insight into this career. Everything that I needed to know is in the book. Well worth itWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
