The MOST CURRENT GUIDE for any aspiring MSLs As an aspiring MSLs candidate. For several months, I have been searching for knowledge and ways to break into the MSLs role. I did my research and finally reach out to Medical Science Liaison Society. I am grateful that Karolina Sandalova suggested this book. This book is the MOST current and PRECIOUS guide for any aspiring MSLs. Well written, structured, and constructed with insights directly from MSLs hiring manager. I look forward to the next year (2024) Annual MSL Society conference.

An Important First Step for Aspiring MSLs This book changed the trajectory of my life. I spent my career as a clinical pharmacist wondering, "is there more to life than this?" This book helped me see that there was and I have never been happier.This book gives basic information about how to break in. All the hard work of accomplishing that is up to you!
Step-by-step guide through interview process I have been an advanced practice provider for 22 years. Shortly after completing my doctoral degree in 2011, I decided to transition into medical affairs. I quickly realized how competitive the industry was - particularly for someone trying to break into the role with a doctor of health science degree - vs. Ph.D./PharmD. (the more historic degrees associated with MSL positions). However, I read Dr. Dyer's book and feverishly began my job search. The first company that gave me a phone interview flew me up for a day of interviews and a PPT presentation. Funny enough, EVERYTHING required in the process mimicked this book word for word. So much as that after I got the job I ask my employer (a diagnostic lab - not pharma) if they had read the book. I am ever so grateful to have found this book. Between this book and the strong networking I have done within the society, I believe I am prepared for anything industry might throwDr. Hamrick - Sr. Dir. Medical Affairs and Clinical Strategy

I recommend it I am from Argentina. I have read the book before my first MSL Job and I found it very Useful. In fact, I started working as MSL three months later. I consult it sometimes even now, and it still gives valuable information.
Straight to the point and useful I bought this book since I am applying to MSL positions and I wanted to have more information about how to get ready to apply for the role. I found that the book is well-structured and provide the information you need straight to the point. I even used it to get ready for my first MSL position phone screening. I do not have any job offer yet but I think I am much more ready for the application and interview process by reading this book.
Lots of information and guidance... The book has a great logical flow and explains all aspects of becoming an MSL...from the role itself, to job search strategies, to the hiring process. Great read that will definitely be referenced over and over as you search for your 1st role!!!
Informative, Easy-to-Read, Brief I think a lot of reviewers have already covered what I would put in my review. This is a good book for those of who are aspiring MSLs. It is an easy read and the information conveyed is concise. The onus is on the reader to apply what they learn from the book to their job-hunting strategy. I found it particularly useful because much of the information I need as I embark on this journey of transitioning from academia to MSL industry is not available online. You can scour the internet for hours and not fund much help. Dr. Dyer's book was exceptionally useful for me in this regards. I'd certainly recommend it to others who are in the same position as myself.
A must read for new aspiring MSLs This book is a great introductory piece to the MSL role. It helps to understand the role better and consequently adequately prepare for the interview. Great for beginners!
