Report Finds Healthcare Sales Job Openings are Down but Increasing

Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) July 30, 2013

The latest healthcare sales jobs report from, a job site for medical sales professionals, reveals the overall number of healthcare sales job openings on five industry job sites has increased since the beginning of the year. This encouraging news is tempered somewhat by the fact that the overall job count is down slightly from last summer, but the recent trend is positive.

Throughout the industry, however, ongoing concerns about the medical device tax and expiring patents seem to offset any positive news about job growth. The Report points to several indicators as examples of the good news / bad news mix.

*Healthcare sales job counts up since January 1st 2013 but down year-over-year.

*Q2 revenue from Johnson & Johnson beat projections, but their device and diagnostics segment underperformed.

*10,000 jobs open at 10 big pharma companies, but Eli Lilly announces pay freeze.

While the overall number of healthcare sales job openings is down 3% from last summer, pharma sales jobs, after a sharp decline in Q4 of 2012, have rebounded to exceed last summer’s high. Device jobs, on the other hand, have been slower to recover. Though the overall number of medical device sales jobs posted online has increased since the beginning of the year, they are still down significantly from last summer. Biotech sales jobs have seen a similar pattern.

Despite the cycle of good and bad news, the overall trend is positive. Whether that trend continues depends largely on how the industry reacts to the full implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Some say the increased demand for drugs and devices will keep jobs in the sector growing. Others predict the cost of the Act to drug and device companies will crush innovation and kill jobs.
