I don’t know anything about how strict rules are in the automotive industry, but if it’s regulated at all definitely bring that up during interviews and focus on how you were able to come up with creative workarounds while being in a regulated industry. Another thing that’s super important is emphasizing how open you are to change and excited to learn about a new industry. Pharma (I have 3.5 years of experience) is a totally different ballgame and set of rules. If you have any other questions/thoughts, please DM me!

Leverage your account skills and training. All of those are relevant to pharma - client service is client service. Biolumina is hiring if you want to talk. DM me.

Automotive is just as obnoxiously restrictive in a different way. Emphasis that.

Not an account person here but I am in pharma and have good relationships with most of my account team. Based on what I have learned from those who came over from nonpharma work the main distinction is that you have to be very on top of long term timelines, costs, and resourcing when planning, since the regulatory review process can be brutal and very time consuming. Clients on the pharma side also sometimes have no concept of this and think normal consumer costs and turnaround are also feasible so there should be (sometimes there can't be, but there should be) client management as well as client servicing. FCB Health is hiring (FCB Health is always hiring) so feel free to reach out to me in DM and I can pass along a resume.
