I am an incoming Junior studying Biology/Pre-vet with the goal of going to vet school sometime in the near future (3-4 years until vet school depending on the situation) and was looking to gain some much-needed animal experience. This is mainly just because I’m interested in animals, which is why I chose my path, and want to work with more than just house pets. It also will assist me in getting into my post-undergrad career path due to the boost in my application to vet school.
I am beginning to work with reptiles in a lab on my college’s campus where I work with them to ensure they have food, water, clean cages, and to check on their health (with the help of more experienced members of the lab). This is a 5 hour/week commitment that will allow me to gain animal experience that I hope will assist me throughout my last 2 years of undergrad and in my applications in the future.
- If you went to college, what internships (or other experience) did you get while in school?
- If you didn’t go to college, what experience in volunteering/former jobs helped your current employer see that you were the person for your job?
