Unfortunately, that is not a background that would transition easily to Pharm or Medical sales, especially through a recruiter.
Most Pharm/Medical sales reps get their start with 2-3 years of outside sales at a top Business-Business company known for their formal sales training and quantitative rankings of their sales force. We have several such companies listed on our website in the section called “QUALIFICATIONS,” but they include: ADP, Pitney Bowes, Xerox, Boise, Canon Copiers, Cintas, Paychex, Standard Register, Lanier, Moore-Wallace, Gallo, Ricoh, etc… These companies typically hire recent college grads without previous outside sales experience and provide excellent sales training.
Pharm or Medical companies sometimes do make exceptions, but not when utilizing a recruiter. You could try applying directly to companies and networking with those you know in the industry.
