I'm a pre-veterinary college student, and I've been hoping to find a veterinary assistant job for quite some time now. I've dropped off resumes at every clinic within about an hour radius, and no one is hiring. This has been an ongoing thing for about a year now--rather discouraging that despite having lots of experience and knowing I'd make a fantastic vet assistant, I can't find a job simply because of lack of availability and positions. I live in a small town and because of the economy, it's currently very difficult to find a job, especially when you're a young adult like me. Anyway, a few weeks ago, a job that's even BETTER suited to me than a vet assistant job showed up suddenly, so I applied a week or two ago and had an interview today. I think it went well and that I'm quite suited for the position (I just hope they agree!), and I'll know in a week or two if I got the job. For some background info before I say what the job is so you can appreciate how perfect this is for me: I'm a vegetarian, I'm very interested in/involved in animal welfare and rescue and have been volunteering with animal rescue groups for years, obviously I'm completely obsessed with chickens and knowledgeable about them, I have a flexible schedule, and this is a part-time job. The job? Helping rescue spent hens from egg farms and birds from hoarding/abandonment/neglect/abuse situations, and coordinating finding them new homes. And this all takes place at a beautiful farm animal sanctuary. It's PERFECT for me! I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the job opening! And it's only fifteen minutes drive away from me, so that's another plus. Anyway, I'm trying not to get my hopes up too high because obviously there's no guarantee I'll get the job, but if I do I'm going to be ecstatic! If anyone can send me good wishes, it'd be much appreciated.
