Pharmaceutical Curriculum Vitae, Works of Art or Dissertations?

15 Jun 09

Unless it paints the right picture you’re letting the side down!

In a depressed job market, an employer is likely to receive 50+ CVs per job advertised from 5 or more Preferred Agencies and many more from agencies who ‘piggy back’ in. So now, more than ever, your CV needs to stand out and be tailored to the role and client and submitted by an agency with valid access.

Spice Up Your Interview Technique

06 May 09

The inspiration for this article came to me when watching an interview with Mr N R Narayanmurthy, Chief Mentor at Infosys. I was particularly taken by his control and poise; clearly, someone with years of training and experience in being interviewed can be completely at ease in such a stressful situation, but it made me think about how we can all improve our own techniques and create that vital positive first impression.

What do the public think of the pharma industry?

28 Apr 09

Public opinion has for long been regarded as essential to the success of a thriving business. In fact, whilst the benefits of popular perception can often appear somewhat intangible on the balance sheet, what is essentially the respect of the customer is the bastion of almost every profession

G20 economic stimulus packages offer little direct aid to branded pharmaceutical players

20 Apr 09

Any positive effect on the pharmaceutical industry derived from the G20 summit and European Union summit will be indirect and much of the direct healthcare spending increase will cover the cost of cheaper generics accessed through publically funded programs. Furthermore, emerging markets previously targeted to drive revenue growth face potentially crippling consequences from the downturn.

14 Oct 08
