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 don’t have to feel so guilty.
Since this has come up every so often, I thought I would find you all some links to help you. You’ll have to find local facilities on your own, but here’s some things to look for, and how to spot a bad one.
Most jobs in medical sales, laboratory sales, clinical diagnostics sales, DNA sales, medical supplies sales, biotech sales, pathology sales, imaging sales, and pharmaceutical sales are high-travel. That’s just the way it is. But they’re also fun and financially rewarding, so don’t let circumstances keep you from a great career.
