What kind of people are pharmaceutical firms looking for in sales jobs?

(According to LiveCareer)  Take Pfizer, for example, which states on its Pharmaceutical Sales careers page that the company seeks "college graduates, experienced salespeople, junior military officers and anyone else with the intellect, experience and stamina to take on the challenges of a fast-track pharmaceutical sales career."

The company further seeks those with "the technical industry knowledge, industry credentials and business competencies we're looking for," as well as those who are creative self-starters with an interest/knowledge in pharmaceutical/medicine or science, and strong interpersonal skills."

“I'm proud to be certified CNPR by your esteemed organization. CNPR certificate helped me in 2 ways:

1. The valuable education and final exam gave me a great introduction into the pharmaceutical industry. I got my feet wet and gave me the confidence during my interviews with the knowledge I gained from the book you provided.

2 The certificate on the resume is priceless because it opens doors to dialogue with recruiters and HR staff.

Bottom line, you have a solid program which prepares you for a career in the pharmaceutical field in terms of education and certification. I strongly recommend any professional to get the CNPR certificate whether they're novice or experienced."
