How easy is it to get a veterinarian job right out of grad. school?

I plan on majoring in animal sciences/pre-veterinary studies in college and I'm curious if it would be easy to get a job right away. Am I going to be able to get a job right away or am I going to have to search for that right employer? Or is it all just simply the luck of the draw? #veterinary #animals #work #grad-school

Todd’s Answer

That depends on what kind of job you want in veterinary medicine, Kaylee, and where you want to find that job. A job in lab animal medicine/research could be easy to find in a metropolitan area, while a job working with cattle and sheep, for instance not so much. So where your interests lie will determine the answer to your question. The more broad ranging your job interests are, and the more different places you are willing to move will increase the odds of finding a job.

Todd recommends the following next steps:

Here is the link to the Ohio State College of Veterinary Medicine admission office: https://vet.osu.edu/education/dvm-admissions I would explore all the links on this page, look at graduate studies, public health, you may even be interested in One Health, which combines human and animal health. Don't be afraid to call the College with any questions you have if you can't find the answer on line. Good luck.
