Veterinary Employment Opportunities Available: Updated 3/24/17
We periodically have a veterinary employment position we need to fill as one of our employees moves on to pursue various educational or career directions. Currently, we have openings for the following positions:
Experienced Veterinary Technician
We are looking for an experienced technician with a love of feline medicine and a desire to provide optimal care for cats. Would you like more responsibility and the ability to utilize your skills? Our technicians do it all, from drawing blood, placing IV catheters, laser treatments, dentals, anesthesia monitoring, and patient care, to client education and more. For more information, see our Veterinary Technician ad on Craigslist DC (Maryland), or email cover letter, resume and references to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have you worked in a veterinary or medical office before, or other busy professional office setting? Love working with people and enjoy cats? We are currently looking for a receptionist for our hospital. Duties include answering phones, greeting clients, admitting patients, scheduling appointments, other administrative duties and more. For more information, see our Veterinary Receptionist ad on Craigslist DC (Maryland), or email cover letter, resume and references to email@example.com.
Wish you could work with animals but don’t have professional experience? Need a flexible schedule and part time hours? Contact us about our Assistant position. No experience required for this one, just a love of cats! You will be assisting the technicians and doctors with the care of our feline patients, as well as helping take care of the hospital. To apply, email cover letter, resume and references to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Veterinary Internship/Volunteer Opportunities
There is nothing like first-hand experience to discover if veterinary medicine is for you! We do take high school and summer interns to help with small tasks around the hospital and get a chance to observe what we do. Minimum age 16 years old. Talk to your high school internship contact about the possibility of setting up an internship for credit, or for volunteer opportunities call us at 301-540-7770 or email email@example.com to see if we have an opening.
Parents, please have your son or daughter contact us directly. We have found that students whose parents make the arrangements to have their children volunteer or observe are often not really engaged in being here. If your child is seriously interested in seeing what goes on at a veterinary hospital, they will learn the most from their experience if they make the arrangements themselves.
