“I have worked with EPM Scientific as a client and a candidate. In my 20- year pharma career I can say that they are the most knowledgeable, supportive, and quietly driven recruiters I have worked with while interviewing for a role. My recruiter took the time not only to fully understand the company’s needs, but also worked to know my skillset and wishes in my next career move. Although, I didn’t accept that role, I was so impressed that I reached out again for help hiring for an expansion with my new Field Medical team. I am certain that I would never have been able to double the size of our Immunology MSL teams in 3 months without the exceptional candidates that the team brought forward. Due to their diligence in understanding the profile and skillsets that we needed, we were able to quickly screen, interview and hire a team of bright, diverse, and driven MSLs across our portfolio.” - Head of Medical Science Liaisons, Janssen

They constantly sought feedback on candidates to ensure that only qualified candidates were sent who met the qualifications on paper, but also possessed the intangibles that an employer seeks. I would not hesitate to work with EPM Scientific again.” - VP of Medical Affairs, Connect BioPharma
