As some of you know, I'm a hairstylist, but my first love has always and will be animals. I'm not a huge people person, and hair just holds no joy anymore (unless I'm doing fun stuff on the side with friends' hair).
So I've begun the process of changing careers. Applying to vet tech courses at local colleges and I've been working with a career centre to tailor my resume to Vet Assistant/Reception jobs. I just applied to 8 clinics, so cross your fingers for me, because I'd rather be covered in fur and other fun stuff than hair colour and perm solution!
I just want to know, because I know a buttload of you are Vet Techs, what I can reasonably expect if I get hired in a clinic as an assistant, because it's been a long ass time since I've worked in a clinic (I was 16/17 when I did, 33 now, so yeah, long time ago), and I forget all the nuances of working in a medical setting. Anyone have some helpful pointers? Also, possibly what to expect with the Vet Tech courses? I'm 100% committed to this, but it's daunting nonetheless.
Thanks in advance, guys <3
