IT Trainer to Pharmaceutical Sales Representative

May 27, 2004

Thank you for all you have done for me. It's hard to believe that it was almost two years ago that I spoke to you for the first time. I was confused, sad, and lost. I was laid off from my job at an IT company, and the future looked dark and hopeless. I never really loved what I did anyway, but I got a paycheck at least. After speaking to you, I realized that this time around I didn't want just a paycheck; I wanted a future.

The work you gave me to do meant I had to reach deep inside and become a child with dreams and hopes for myself. That was so hard and emotional. But you stayed by my side through it all. I knew you were my wonder wall, and I could tell you anything. My fears were so real until I'd get on the phone with you and then, I would feel as if I could do anything I desired.

There are times in everyone's life when they need someone who has the ability and talent to look in from outside and guide you through a winding and confusing road ahead. Well, you did that and so much more for me. You were like a friend when I was going through a difficult interview process. You coached me to be on top of my game.

Getting into pharmaceutical sales is and always will be very challenging, but thanks to you I have been employed by one of the best pharmaceutical companies in the world. I love my job, and everyday I think of what we both have gone through to get me here. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I recommend your services to anyone who wants to get out of a dead end job. You will always be very close to my heart. I thank God for knowing you and having you as my guide. You're more like an angel to me than someone who provided me with a service. Keep up the great work, and know that I am here because of you.

Sincerely,

Azi C., Virginia / North Carolina

Meg’s Note: Not only at her age did Azi have to compete with “preferred” pharmaceutical sales candidates (recent college graduates), she had to learn how to position her naturalized citizenship as a strength to potential employers. She still works for the same pharmaceutical company today - four years after coaching.
