Quick Tips for Jobseekers

Comments Off on Quick Tips for Jobseekers

Are you feeling overwhelmed by the sheer number of jobs available for vets at the moment? Every clinic in Australia seems to be desperate for more vets. How do you pick the right clinic for you?

1.     Create a profile of your ideal job and employer.

  • First think about your current and previous jobs – and decide what you might like to avoid in your next job, and what might be missing in your current job.
  • What is most satisfying in your current job.
  • You may have a preferred geographical area – but remember to be open to jobs outside this area too. Your perfect job might be just a little farther away or in a suburb that you’ve not yet considered.
  • What kind of workplace culture are you after? Vet Clinics are getting better at personalising their advertising, and giving an idea of their culture and mission.
  • Do you want to work for a large company group? Benefits can include the opportunity for in house education, networking, work opportunities or transfers with other practices within the group, and a range of more corporate perks and benefits. Or is a smaller, more unique practice with hands on input from one or more Owner Vets more your style?

2.     Use your connections to research clinics

Don’t be afraid to interview the Clinic – ask to have a chat with current staff, including the vet nurses. Spend a few trial days at the Clinic if possible

3.     Register with Kookaburra Vet Employment

Let Kookaburra Vets help you narrow down suitable jobs – if you can give us a geographical area and type of practice that you are looking for, then we can send you personalised email alerts with newly listed job information. So if you’re looking for a job in Gippsland, we won’t send you job information for a clinic on the Gold Coast. Avoiding information overload helps you to focus on the best jobs for you.

Kookaburra also sends personalised texts with locum job alerts. We supply full clinic details – so you can decide whether to apply or not.
