Veterinary Sales Executive Interview

Date written : 28/08/2014

Medray are delighted to announce the employment of Emily Connor B.Sc. VN RVN  to cover the west of Ireland as a Veterinary Sales Executive. 


How did you come to work as a Veterinary Sales Executive?


I had been in practice for about 6 years and decided that I would like to try something new but I still wanted to stay in the Veterinary industry if I could.  From chatting to veterinary sales reps on a daily basis I had a basic understanding of what the role involved.  I decided to look into it as a career prospect and spoke to a few sales reps to see what the job entailed in more detail.   I found this gave me a realistic idea of the role which is hard work but can be very rewarding. I spoke to Karen from Medray at the IVNA congress and was blown away by her enthusiasm for the job! So when the opportunity arose with Medray I went for it!


What do you like most about your job so far?


I love being out on the road and meeting new people, no two days are the same. I enjoy driving and because I am based in the West of Ireland I get to drive through some of the most fantastic countryside every day!  


What, if anything have you found challenging?


I have become great friends with my Sat Nav and Google maps.   I find it can be a bit of a challenge working out where all the practices are and planning my route every day so that I don't pass anyone by or leave anyone out.

Could you describe a typical working day?


As I know from the night before what practices I want to visit each day, I roughly try to do it either by city or county. I plan my route the night before and have all my practice addresses and contact numbers written out. I try to get on the road as early as possible so depending on where I'm travelling to, I could be up as early as 5am.


I phone each practice first to organise an appointment if possible or just to let them know I am in the area. I have all my various special offers and information leaflets organised for each practice depending on what their needs may be. I try to get to as many practices as possible each day and I am usually home by 6 or 7 each evening.


What aspect of Veterinary Nursing do you think most prepared you for this role?


I find the fact I have used a lot of the equipment myself is of huge benefit to me.   It makes me more confident when chatting about a product to a client. 


What do you miss most about veterinary practice?


I do miss the hands on experience with the animals but luckily I have a very busy Wire Fox Terrier at home who keeps me on my toes!
