As originally asked by James Hurst.
I am a PhD chemical engineer with experience in the U.S. printing industry. I think that my experience with polymer materials and processes can be applied in the medical devices industry. I would like your advice on how I can get the attention of medical device employers without the relevant experience on my resume.
Or call Devin Lockett at 424 204-2382 for more information. Hope this helps.
> Continue networking. Connect with the most influential people you can, within the companies you’d enjoy working for. You’re off to a good start. Being a part of this LinkedIn group is important. You can also look into joining other well-managed med device groups. I could advise further if you wish.
There are companies out there who have an open mind about hiring from outside. As Martin has said, there are companies who hire clinicians for sales or customer education. Those can be terrific roles.
I hope this is helpful.

I give the same advice to graduates as well as those wishing to transfer their skills form another industry.
With regard to your job hunting…you might consider taking an introductory course on the QSR (21 CFR 820) with AAMI.org. Recruiters seem to get copies of those attendees lists every time–and the course will help you understand cGMPs and ISO 13485 better.
PS – I’m a ChemE too.

Currently, I am working as a RateMyShipment freight agent for Roadrunner Transportation Services.
On a side note, I am looking through the regulatory requirements. In terms of project management, I just see them as part of the deliverables for any product development project. How the deliverables are met is greatly dependent on the device.
What is the major obstacle in meeting regulatory requirements? Is it interpretation?
Compare failing and nonconforming part types. Failing means that part does not get sent to the consumer, nonconforming means not within specifications, but not necessarily failing.

Med device could use more “outsiders” getting involved. I think we could learn from industries that have been more cost constrained–or maybe even more innovative–than we have been. Besides, we all started from “scratch” at some point.
The best med device engineers I’ve worked with recently came from consumer electronics, hardware, and automotive.
