Kansas State University Colleges of Veterinary Medicine and Business
Administration invite you to attend the Veterinary Career Opportunities
Workshop, November 3-4, 2006. The goal of this meeting is to help busy,
practicing veterinarians find the right person to join their practice as
a new associate. Education includes skills related to finding new
associates, graduating student expectations, fair benefits packages, and
reasonable job descriptions. This meeting is a great chance to learn
about recruiting and hiring the new associate. Practitioners will meet
and interact with current veterinary students who are interested in
mixed animal practice. Upon leaving the Workshop, practitioners will
have a professional, printed job description and a wealth of new
knowledge to help build their practices. The conference will be in
Manhattan, KS and ten hours of continuing education credit will be
awarded for attendance.
Veterinary students from Kansas State University will attend a portion of the Workshop. Brief, mock, interviews between the students and practitioners will be conducted to allow both prospective employers and new associates to discuss expectations related to the specific job.
