A small vet's office is hiring for a kennel technician, and I sent in my resume via email last Wednesday. A couple days later, I called to check to see if they'd gotten my resume. They said yes, but that the person hiring hasn't read them all yet.
Now, I really need this job, and since I'm going to school next semester for Veterinary Technology, it would be wonderful work experience for me.
I don't want to keep calling and bothering the vet, because I don't want to ruin my chances.
What can I do to make sure I get an interview and get the job?
I just recently started a job as a kennel technician at a Vet. I'm also trying to lose weight & in order to do that I need to be able to snack during the work day to keep my metabolism going, but I don't get any designated breaks except for lunch. I'm busy on my feet all day & not really sure it's OK for me to take a few minute break for a snack (if I am done with one task I immediately have to find something else to do & no one ever says anything about taking a break so it's led me to believe that there are none), thou I don't see why it would be a problem. Not getting a snack seems to have a horrible effect on me thou especially since I'm on my feet, I get dizzy & nauseas I assume from lack of nutrients & water.
I've read some things about the job and it says you have to have a license to be able to euthanize and give medications and shots to animals...how do you get those licenses to be able to apply for the job?
I work at Petsmart as a Kennel Technician, last night I got a huge allergy attack and I had to leave an hour early because my face was all red and puffy. I worked for 4 hours through the allergy attack. Its cats that I am allergic too. I took two claritin last night. Is there any preventive measures I can take to keep this job and work at maximum efficiency? Im poor btw.
I am 17, and I found a job opening for a kennel tech, but I didn't know if there needed to be skills or experiences or age limits
I went to veterinary assistant school and completed the kennel attendant program, i must gain experience before returnig to the next program. I know kennel attendabts are basically janitors, and i have no problem wih cleaning but the hospital im at is asking for too much.
I have a task list which i complete everyday, its a bunch of manual labor, one after the other leaving me no breathing time. The techs on the other hand sit around talking all day. The manager is constantly adding new things to my list and confronts me if i miss one thing. Im in charge of caring for the Doctor's pet cat, i clean out his litter box and feed him, she never does and it's HER CAT. I asked for a day off to attend a religious ceremony and my day was denied because another coworker wanted her birthday weekend. I let it go until my manager informed me that i can only request one day off every 6 weeks and even then my requests are denied. Everyone else isballowed many requests a month. The hospital is closed on Sundays so i am scheduled to come in and care for the boarding pets and get the hospital back in shape, ive worked here for 6 months and ive had ONE sunday off, the managers only work monday through thursday, how convenient. We have a break room and lately my coworkers have been leaving their dirty dishes in the sink for me to wash, that is not on my task list.
Aside from that im always asked to help out wih patients in the treatment room, that is the technicians job, i wouldn't mind if i wasn't also expected to complete my list.
Is there any sort of legal action i can take since i am being asked to do work that is not on my task list as my contract stated?
Im doing a careers assignment and need to know what jobs are related to a vet assistant?
I'm planning on being either one after college to be either one but I would like to know the differences between a vet technician and a vet assistant?
Ok, so i live in the UK and i'm currently in my first year of AS and it's about that time i need to start thinking about my future. First of all, i am unsure of what degree to do. Currently my ideal job would be something that would involve working with animals however i do tend to change my mind a lot. My first question is should i do i general biology degree or something more specific such as zoology?
I have done some research into working with animals but i haven't got very far. I know that these kinds of jobs don't tend to offer very high pay. So i was wondering what the best sort of career would be if i wanted to work with animals and also what sort of career working with animals would give offer a higher salary than the others. Also, what other careers would be available to me with my biology degree that could also be interesting and offer a lot of pay?
Should I do Biology or zoology?
What hands on careers are there with animals?
What careers with animals get paid a lot?
What other careers are there in biology that are interesting and have high pay?
Thank you to anyone who takes the time to help :)
What kind of work do they do? What kinds of settings can they find a job at besides a normal vet clinic? Do they make enough money to support themselves?
What is the difference as far as what they do, between a certified veterinarian and a certified veterinary technician?
I ultimately want to receive my degree for Veterinary Medicine, but I'm wondering if my Veterinary Technician degree (two years) can transfer towards the Vet medicine degree (like the first four years). Would it be a complete waste of time if I receive the vet tech first ?
I might get a job for a vet and I was wondering what Im going to have to do. Like walk dogs, and clean up after them or something?
Please and thank you :)
I want to go to Pima Medical Institute, so I can get a jump start on getting a good, relaible job that I can live off of, but I dont know what I wanna do.
any kind of advice would be helpful!
I'm currently a sophmore in highschool and I want to become a vet technician. Do I need to go to a university for 4 years to get a bachelors degree or do I Just go to 2 years of Vet tech school ? (feel free to leave any more info on becoming a vet tech . )thanks !
Just as the Q asks. What types of jobs at vet/animal places can/should I apply to.
I know some students who are vet technicians/nurses, but I"m not sure if it's because they've also done previous courses prior to starting the vet degree. If I was in 1st yr what could I do?
I would like to go to college to be either a veterinary assistant or technician, I'm leaning more toward the assist, and I was wondering what all they allow in that field pertaining to facial piercings and tattoos. I will be planning on working down in Austin, Texas if that helps any.
What about other jobs involving pets? Like a pet trainer, or working at a kennel?
Thanks in advance! c:
Haha, typo in the title. - w -;; *allowed
Also, I'm just looking for a generalization. I know that it's up to the employer, but are most accepting of it? Is it a common thing for them to allow it?
And I'm only planning on getting snakebites, nothing major~ c:
I am interested in becoming a veterinary technician. My only problem is that I need a minimum of forty hours in a vet clinic in order to apply.
What I am nervous about is the actual going in the clinic and asking them. What should I say? Should I talk to the receptionist and go from there?
There are currently two clinics that I am seriously considering going to ask, and a third that is a possibility. I am a responsible student and have many animals of my own. I just want to know how I should go about approaching the clinic to do so. Any suggestions are appreciated.
I want o work with animals, but i would not be able to get through medical school with all of the math and science. I just want to work with animals, give them their medicine and watch them get better and live. Idk if that would be an assistant or technician!?
I don't know what kind of job i want and i'm a sophmore in highschool so the pressure is on hehehe but i know i want something to do with animals and i don't feel like working at fast food restaraunts and factories for the rest of my life.
I am wanting to begin college to get an associates degree in veterinary technology. I love animals and i want to help them but I don't know how great I'd be at seeing dead animals or euthanizing them. Is it a pretty gruesome job? Is it rewarding? What all does your job entail?
