The Most Important Traits for a Sales Career in Life Science 

Life science sales jobs help people blend meaningful work with the excitement of closing the sale. If you’re a person who artfully blends empathy with a drive to sell, plus you want to make a positive difference in people’s lives, you’ll enjoy a fast-paced, goal-driven career in life science sales.

The Importance of Empathy

People who succeed in life science sales jobs have a great deal of emotional intelligence. They use empathy to understand what a customer is thinking, and listen effectively to understand their customers’ needs and concerns.

The best life science sales professionals can place themselves into the shoes of patients, doctors, nurses, and hospital administrators. They might not agree with everything that a potential customer says, but they understand how to see things from a customer’s point of view. They incorporate the customer’s concerns into the sales presentation, and they shift their sales pitch based on customers’ cues.

Life Science Sales Jobs: Making a Positive Difference

People in life science sales jobs make good money, but money isn’t a good enough motivator to sustain long-term success. The need to sell isn’t something that people can learn, and those who don’t have it often struggle to meet goals. Those who do have it can build long, successful careers selling pharmaceutical products, medical devices, and biotech solutions.

However, becoming a life science sales professional isn’t just about making money. When you’re working in life science sales jobs, you’re on the cutting edge of medical technology. You’re able to provide people with the latest innovations in medications, devices, and health care technology. 

As a life science sales professional, you play a key role in bringing the best available medical care to people all over your community, your country, and your world. You connect doctors, hospitals, and patients to solutions for a wide range of medical problems. Even though you don’t provide direct patient care, a medicine or device that you sell could save a patient’s life.
