I have had several interviews with device companies since graduating last May, and keep running into the same problem. I continue doing very well and making it to the final 2 candidates. The last 3 companies that I made it this far with, all chose the male candidate over me in the end. Is this just a crazy coincidence or are device companies more apt to hire male candidates for device positions when it is down to the final two. At my last device interview I was told that he thought I was better suited for pharma. sales because "pharmaceuticals are sexy" and he was worried this job wouldn't be "sexy enough" for me (his words). Although he told me that I was more than qualified and interviewed wonderfully. The job before that chose the male candidate as well, even though he (hiring manager) told me we were equally qualified. Since I do not want to create controversy (I just want a job!) can anyone give me any helpful tips on how to combat this type of problem? I have been killing myself trying to get into a company, and one year later, despite making it to the final 2 several times, am still without a job in this field.
