    MedComms Networking - 22 January 2019


    For me at least, the exciting news this week is that we've published the new (2nd) edition of our careers guide for wannabe account managers. The business of medical communications: a guide to getting started in account management has been authored by Lindsey Heer and is currently one of three annual careers guides that we now provide through the FirstMedCommsJob service. A huge thanks to the many who support them - they really are very valuable resources. Please help spread the word and encourage all relevant others to take a look. It would be great to see a wave of social media type activity highlighting them this week, for instance across Linkedin and Twitter using hashtag #MedComms. Let's make some noise.

    As always, the new guide is freely accessible online and we're now just waiting for printed copies to arrive. If you want one then they'll be available free of charge, so long as stocks last. Simply ping me a message.

    Now, we're tackling the new edition (the 11th) of our long established guide for wannabe writers, From academic to medical writer: a guide to getting started in medical communications authored by Annick Moon, which will be published in March. Shout if you'd like to ensure your agency features in that. We're running out of space fast.

    Meanwhile, and to celebrate launching the updated account managers' guide, I'm delighted Lindsey can join us for our free Zoom Webinar for the wannabes this Thursday, 24 January, at midday 12.00 GMT; So, you want to work in account management? Lindsey will offer advice on how to prepare for that first account management job in MedComms, and what to expect. It should be of interest to anyone who is looking for insights in to MedComms as a career and how to maximise their chances of gaining an entry level job. Register for your place now.

    These Zoom webinars are proving to be an effective means to engage with the wannabes. Hopefully we'll do many more. Last week we ran one with Andrew Thomson, Michelle Turner, Samantha Blakemore and Ella Palmer talking about Working at inScience Communications. For those who are interested in the numbers; 75 delegates signed up, 36 attended on the day and we're already at 150 views of the video recording and counting. All very simple. And just plain useful. That video, along with many others, can be found at and via our MedComms YouTube channel. Enjoy! If you'd like to join in let me know.

    Finally, if you work in #medcomms, or even if not but you work with publications, and can't be in London this week then you should be following #ISMPPEU19 on Twitter - that's all I'll say. (I'm not at all cross that I can't be there, though I'm sure I won't be missed. Have a good one, everyone).

    Remember, details of all our activities are kept bang up-to-date at or give me a shout at any time if you've any questions, comments or suggestions.
