Apeejay alumna reveals how professors helped her bag a job at Bharat Serums 

The alumna joined the company this year after studying Pharmacy at Apeejay



Radhika Bhatnagar, 22, is currently working as a graduate sales trainee and medical representative at Bharat Serums and Vaccines Ltd. She recently got placed in the company after completing her graduation in Pharmacy from Apeejay Stya University (ASU). Read to know more about her experience:

Why did you opt for Pharmacy?

I was interested in the subject. Many of my family members also recommended it and said there are a lot of opportunities in this field.

Take us through your experience at ASU.

The professors helped me a lot during my journey at ASU. They always motivated me and are the reason I bagged this job. ASU provided much-needed hands-on learning to prepare me for the future. I got the opportunity to work on a lot of projects including the repurposing of Covid-19 drugs under the guidance of my professors. I also performed several practicals in Pharmacology and Pharmacognosy.

You got your job at Bharat Serums at the campus placement. How did your professors prepare you?

The professors guided me well on how to present myself before the interviewer. They advised me to be motivated and confident and not to hesitate even if I fumble. Their advice was very helpful, and I feel fortunate to have cracked my first job interview.

What is your job role at Bharat Serums and Vaccines?

My role involves visiting doctors, hospitals, and clinics in Delhi NCR and convincing them to prescribe my company’s products related to women’s health. These include medicines and products used during pregnancy, miscarriage, infertility, and so on. I am currently accompanying my territory branch manager to all our clients.

How difficult is the job of convincing doctors?

The only difficulty is that there is a lot of wait time involved in every meeting. So, you need a lot of patience in this job. Having said that, I think this job has helped me expand my outlook—I get to meet various medical professionals and bond with representatives from other companies. I am getting to learn a lot.
