No offense to those with psychology degrees, but the most valuable college degrees now and in the future are much more science and technology-oriented: Engineering, Computers, Finance, and Science.

Creating Abundance through Referral Strategies



“Call Jim, he is looking, he has the relationships in place where your client needs them, and he has had high income years selling which means I strongly recommend him, but please don’t tell him where you got his name.”

Job Interview Etiquette….At Lunch

Not out to lunch…at lunch. As in, what do you need to know to have a successful job interview over lunch? Interviews over meals may seem less formal than office interviews, but they are just as important. If you have a lunch interview for reasons other than your interviewer is truly incredibly busy, it’s because he or she is looking for something more than just your job skills. Like, how do you handle yourself in a semi-social situation? Can you focus with multiple distractions? (Are you gross… Continue

Sales Candidates: Don’t bury the BS on your resume…

A Bachelor of Science degree (major in Chemistry, Biology, Molecular, etc.) is not necessary, but it is helpful in medical sales, clinical diagnostics sales, laboratory sales, DNA products sales, sales of medical or surgical supplies, medical device sales, pharmaceutical sales, or any healthcare sales. So don’t bury it at the bottom of your resume where I have to search for it. Candidates who don’t have a BS try to hide that fact in various ways, but if you have yours, display it proudly. (But… Continue

3 Tips Before You Make an Offer

Rule 1: Get excited about your position.

Before you sell a candidate on a position, sell yourself on it. A candidate will never be more enthusiastic about the position than you are. Spend some time finding out what the positives are in the position and the type of candidate that would match best for it.



Rule 2: Make sure you have a good match.

If you're working too hard to close a candidate then take a step back and ask if this is a good match.

If you feel it's not a… Continue

The 30/30/40 rule and why it MATTERS!

The 30/30/40 rule really separates the winners from the losers.



How well someone understands this rule sorts the mediocre recruiter from those at Presidents Club, seperates the wheat from the chaff, and makes or breaks careers in our industry.



The thing is, though, it's so simple - people don't get it.

30% of the people you meet are going to like you right away, for a reason they can't… Continue

The compensation plan changed again. The revolving door of company executives spins out of control. You look at the corporate direction and you'd like to give the CEO a compass so he can find his way. Concerned, you've decided that today is the day that you will peek your… Continue

Can You Sell A Pencil?

To be a great salesman you must be able to sell a pencil. That’s right, a pencil. As a matter of fact, this is a common training technique used by many sales managers so let’s just see how you measure up to the pros.



Let’s put this situation into play. You are sitting across from a client (for now, a friend or co-worker). With you is a pen, nothing expensive, nothing fancy, just an ordinary pen. Now, your job is to get the client to buy the pen from you. How do you do it? What do you… Continue

Motivate Your Sales Team to Crush the Tomato

Motivation is one of the biggest keys to developing successful teams. Every day strong skilled teams are beaten by lesser skilled ones loaded with heart and desire. But who creates the motivation for that to happen?





One of my favorite hobbies is playing baseball with my kids. I'm very involved with their Little League teams and volunteer to help teach baseball skills to the kids. My 7-year old son, Steven, is playing his first year of coach-pitch baseball. Prior to that,… Continue

Cafepharma: the good, the bad, and the ugly

A lot of people want to know what I think about CafePharma. Here goes: I think that it’s a great source of relevant headlines for those of us in medical and healthcare sales, pharmaceutical sales, laboratory sales, clinical diagnostics sales, DNA sales, medical supplies sales, medical equipment sales, imaging sales, and pathology sales. However, beware of the chat room. There can be a lot of negative information from people who have their own specific axe to grind. No company is as bad as they… Continue

Medical Sales - lots of travel, what to do with Fido?

So, the other day I was talking to someone I thought would be a great candidate for laboratory sales–high-energy, great people skills, knowledgeable, everything. She was interested in the opportunity, too. Her only concern: with all the traveling involved, what does she do with her dog? My answer: doggie day care. Many dogs don’t do well when left alone, even with a dog door. Doggie day care facilities dogs them with socialization skills, so they’re a happier dog when you pick them up and you… Continue

Human Capital Strategies- Lead Development

From time to time I have had the opportunity to teach my client the power of ‘fishing’ vs. the one time benefit of handing them ‘fish.’ The power and extensibility of creating a repeatable process has many benefits which include having ownership of a passive pool of candidates, creating a branding strategy to build credibility in high potential candidate eyes and the maximum benefit of identifying true ‘A’ players. Contrasted with hiring one talented employee per requisition, and the benefits… Continue

Quick Tip: Job Interview Thank You Letters

E-mail thank you letters after job interviews in medical sales, healthcare sales, biotech sales, medical equipment sales, DNA products sales, clinical diagnostics sales, laboratory products sales, medical supplies sales, or pharmaceutical sales are perfectly acceptable. But what do you do if you happened to leave without getting an e-mail address?

Google them: *@thecompany.com. For instance, *@phcconsulting.com would get you mine, and everyone else who works here.

Job interview tip: Don’t forget the thank you letter

Don’t underestimate how important thank you letters are in the job interview process. Everybody “knows” they’re critical, but unbelievably, not everyone writes them. Thank you letters accomplish several things:



1) They get your name in front of the hiring manager one more time.



2) They are your last chance to package yourself as the best, most qualified person for the job.



3) They are polite, and manners count.



4) They help you land the… Continue

Job Search Tip: Keep a Brag Book

If you’re looking for a job in medical sales, clinical diagnostics sales, laboratory sales, DNA sales, medical supplies or equipment sales, pharmaceutical sales, or biotechnology sales, marketing, or tech support (or you will be soon), it would help you tremendously to have a brag book.



A brag book is a list of your accomplishments (stories for behavioral interviews, right here), new skills and training, stack rankings, performance reviews, e-mails or letters from satisfied… Continue
