Choosing an animal career in the veterinary field will require additional training and potentially education, depending on your goals. Don’t let this stop you though.

- Do your research: every career has a path to completion. Some are more flexible than others. You want to make sure that when you apply for a job you have the skills and requirements needed to succeed.
- Get skills: while loving animals is a necessary passion, you are going to need experience performing a variety of task regardless of what career you pursue. Talk to local animal shelters and rescue organizations about volunteer opportunities. Not only can you gain skills this way, but you are also networking. Let your new co-workers know your plans, you never know who knows somebody looking for a candidate like you to work for them.
- Create an appealing resume: once you have picked your career path and gained some skills, you will want to create a compelling resume that highlights your skills, passions, and value you will bring to the job.
- Don’t become stagnant: eventually, you are going to land that dream job working with animals in the perfect capacity for you. The worst thing you can do is to become stagnant. Keep focused on advancing skills and learn new skills. The more valuable you make yourself the better your career outlook will be.
