Hi fellow friends of the Cove,

I'm currently working as RAQA Executive for a company selling wireless ECG devices. My scope covers the MDR, RED&EMC, GDPR and PDPA for various countries, Cybersecurity (MDCG 2019-16) and IEC 62304 for our IT infrastructure systems. I was previously QA for ~2 years doing preclinical device research (GLP Lab), and am half a year into my RAQA role. I like the exposure my current company gives me, but it is a small company and progression is limited.

My question is, after getting the basic experience at my current role (at least 2 years), what are some tips for moving into a RA role with the big guys (Medtronic, Boston Sci etc.), or should I stick to the wireless device scope with another reasonably sized company.

Education background: masters in chemistry

Would love to hear your thoughts, and thanks for taking the time to read this post :)
