Tech & Pharma Sales Careers


The Bruin Development Academy presents a unique opportunity for students to receive industry specific professional development through interactive workshops over the course of several weeks. Based on student feedback, this new edition of the Bruin Development Academy offers insight into careers in technical, pharma and medical device sales and the secrets to selling. This interactive workshop will highlight the parallels between selling a brand and selling yourself. Students will learn about careers in sales and the variety of opportunities. Students will create their personal pitch, learn how to ask the right questions and develop the skills to use LinkedIn and UCLA ONE to find leads for making connections. Students will leave the program with a better sense of their personal brand and potentially new career directions.

This academy course will meet during weeks 2 – 4 on Thursdays from 6 – 8 p.m.

All other logistical information will be provided once applicants have been selected into the Academy. Selections will be on a rolling admissions basis.
