Question: I’m currently in medical device sales and looking to make a career move. I’m being asked to give existing client references to a potential, new employer. I’ve spent the last 6 years building relationships with these clients. I’m hesitant to ask them to be a reference. What if I don’t get the job. Should I give the client references?
Answer: This can be a tricky situation to be in. However, it is commonly asked when interviewing for a job in medical sales. My advice is to tell the company you are interviewing with that you would be happy to supply this information when you are extended an offer. If you plan to accept the offer this should work out. Their offer would most likely be contingent upon these references. Hope this helps.
