What degree do I need to work in an animal clinic has a vet assist?

I just recently graduated from vet assistant school and when I applied for a inter ship at a local animal clinic, the vet said that he never heard of this position and that there is only vet techs. So i was wondering if another vet or vet assistant can tell me whats going on and if this is true and that i need to get yet another degree. Because he said in the long run i wont get any real jobs with this degree.
