Writing at a pharma company doesn't alwys mean writing
*about* pharmaceutical products. I work for such a
company (I'm not typing that out again!) but in the IT
department. I need to know about 21 CFR Part 11
because I document validated systems. But it hasn't
so far (in a year) required a lot of special medical
or pharma knowledge. In fact, when I interviewed, they
weren't all that concerned about my knowledge of
biology or whatever.

My medical knowledge mainly comes from the fact that
my mother worked for doctors for 20 years, and I
worked my way thru college in a drugstore. My
mother-in-law is an RN and my father-in-law was a
senior hospital lab technician. None of that is, of
course, my own direct experience, but it does have
some impact on my familiarity with concepts and

I document software, and create SOPs, in use all over
the company--like IT, accounting, and sales or
marketing, more than in research or production areas.
Your previous experience may be enough to at least get
your foot in the door.
