The Advantages of Using a Specialized Medical Sales Resume Service
You would not hire a plumber to do a colonoscopy procedure
There are literally hundreds of resume services out there offering all kinds of packages and services. Some are national in scope, some are Mom and Pop operations. Most are good services that can do the job. But do you want to invest your money in a service that can just do the job, or invest in a Medical Search firm that can not only craft an outstanding resume but give you tips and strategies on hitting the market properly?
If you are looking or a career in medical sales, or are looking to advance your career, there are distinct advantages in using a Medical Search Firm to build your resume.
1.) Medical Executive Recruiters deal with hundreds of medical companies and hiring managers. They know EXACTLY what medical managers want to see on a resume. This comes from years of recruiting and placing people in the industry. Resume services cannot offer this distinct advantage.
2.) Generic resume services do not have industry contacts. When you are dealing with a Medical Executive Search firm, the recruiters know exactly which companies you should target and can provide contact information on those companies. Resume services write resumes for all industries using a pre formed template. They are not medical industry experts.
3.) Generic resume services do not provide the buzz words that can get you an interview
Ask them what a Value Analysis Committee is. Ask them to define a C- Suite. See if they can explain PTCA, Neuromodulation, Percutaneous, IR, ER, Vagal Nerve Stimulation, etc. Yes, they will use buzz words such as “Creative, Management, Executed, Accomplished. etc.” So will we. but we know the medical terminology that will entice a Regional Manager to take notice.
4.) Many “Certified Resume Writers” have never worked in the medical profession, or in any business organization for that matter. They are just good writers and graphic artists who believe that the prettier and more wordy the resume is, the better it will look. We believe in the philosophy that less is more. We focus more on content. What is a “Certified Resume Writer” anyway?
5.) Most Generic Resume Services cost too much money for what you get. Prices vary from$100 for Mom and Pop Servicesto over $1200for the high end services. Medical Executive Search firms make their money from placing people and can provide a higher and more complete level of service for far less cost to you. While the less expensive services seem appealing, they cannot provide the value that a Medical Search Firm can. You get what you pay for.
6.) Medical Executive Search Firms can place you in a great new position.
Generic Resume Services cannot do that.
Medical Executive Search Firms live, breathe and work in the medical profession daily. They have the contacts, the industry knowledge, the insights, the tools and the years of experience that “Certified Resume Writers” or “Resume Services” cannot provide. You will receive a far better value proposition and more bang for your buck. Before you engage the services of a resume writer please consider what that service will provide before and after you pay their fee. And then consider how a Specialized Medical Executive Search Firm would be a better investment.
