Ready Now

At Otsuka, we like to think of ourselves as open-minded when it comes to spotting sales potential in people who may have ability but not the experience. Our Ready Now program gets people out of the Catch 22 scenario where you need experience before a company will hire you but you can’t get hired in the first place without the right experience. People, not roles, are what make us a special company. We look for highly motivated people who challenge conventional thinking, are constantly curious and life-long learners. We are an innovative company that values people who bring different perspectives and can provide insights. We believe creativity is everything. Without people who make a difference, there is no real growth. That’s why we are always looking for people have already shown a level of excellence in what they do and now are looking for a new and exciting challenge in pharmaceutical sales. While we expect a Bachelor’s degree from a college or university, and 2-5 years of postgraduate business experience, sales experience is not necessary, just a willingness to learn our business and become immersed in Otsuka’s culture and values.
