Our Sales Development Program

Otsuka has a field sales development program, ReadyNow, for those interested in pharmaceutical sales, but who may not have any previous experience in it. While a bachelor’s degree from a college or university and 2-5 years of postgraduate business experience is expected, a lack of sales experience does not have to be a barrier to start. All that is needed is a willingness to learn about our business and a desire to become immersed in Otsuka’s culture and values. Email us at for more information about the ReadyNow program.
