This content is copied from Amaan Ansari’s LinkedIn posts. Please read the post carefully as Amaan gave some light to a particular topics.

Many Life Sciences graduates/postgraduates also Pharm graduates/post graduates especially freshers are looking for opportunities in #clinicaldatamanagement and #pharmacovigilance etc. For entering these fields many individuals are additionally pursuing PG Diploma in CDM and PV and investing thousands of rupees in it.

The question here is, are these certificates compulsory to enter these fields.
The answer is “No”.

If you are pursuing it’s good but it’s not compulsory for entering PV or CDM.

As a fresher you just need to:
1) Be thorough with your educational background.
2) Develop communication skills.
3) Gain basic knowledge of CDM and PV through Slide Share ppt, Google ppts. etc.
4) Prepare a good CV
5)Approach people working in PV and CDM for professional guidance.

Remember one or the other day you will be selected. If you are rejected anywhere there is always a better opportunity waiting for you. The majority of Pharmacy and Life Sciences freshers are confused about how to start their careers.

How to start your careers

Below are some important points:

If a person is posting any job opportunities from his/her organization it is always as a helping hand. A person will post whatever official email he gets from his organization let it be for freshers/ experience. He can’t post anything from his end. Also if you are eligible for the particular job role the most he/she can do is Refer you and guide you, that’s it what we can do. Getting interview calls and getting selected is not in our hands.

I know as a fresher it’s not easy to get a chance. But have faith in yourself and prepare yourself and be the best, hopefully, One day you will get your dream job. So keep learning and Helping each other.

I myself try to reply to each and every person who DMs me, sometimes due to an overload of DMs there might be a delay in reply, but I assure you that I reply.

Please note this is a generic scenario. It may vary from person to person.

Guidance to check the authenticity of job posts on LinkedIn

Are all Job Openings posted for freshers Correct or its Fake? Always remember to review a person’s profile before commenting on his/her post or sending him/ her a connection request. Nowadays it’s been observed that people working in a particular organization are posting Job openings of some other organizations and posting just that ” DM me or Inbox me for details”.

Think twice if a person is not in that Organisation He/ She can’t give you details and can’t refer you to that organisation. Such kinds of posts are just for making connections and misguiding people.

But! If a person is posting some other organization’s openings and giving you a link to apply which is directing you to that organization’s page then no issues in such cases.
