Veterinary Career Services

Career Resource Center
The Career Resource Center located in S2-009 Schurman Hall contains an expanding library of professional and personal development materials and tools in written, audio and electronic formats. Current topics include resume, curriculum vitae and cover letter writing, negotiation skills, personal career profile software, as well as veterinary practice management and marketing texts.

Cornell Mentoring Partnerships
The Cornell Mentoring Partnership Program provides a variety of venues for veterinarians and students to interact personally and electronically.

Current Opportunity Database
The Veterinary Career Services job posting system offers potential employers and employees an on-line resource for sharing and gathering information on opportunities available. Externships, Opportunity Blocks, Student Summer and Academic Year Jobs and Permanent Positions are posted! Opportunities represent the myriad of career choices available to veterinarians.

Mock Interviews/Negotiations
Practice makes perfect. We are happy to schedule mock interview and negotiation sessions with veterinarians to help students prepare and be comfortable with their interview skills and principled negotiations. These sessions may be videotaped at the student's request.

Learning by doing! Professional development workshops are held throughout the year. Past topics have included Negotiation Skills, panel discussions on Internships, Externships, and Practice Ownership and roundtable discussions with Industry Leaders.

State and National Board Examinations
State Board (AAVSB - American Association Of Veterinary State Boards) and National Board (National Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners) requirements are available in electronic form and hard copy in the Career Resource Center. Licensing requirements for employment in foreign countries are best investigated through the staff in the Office of Student and Academic Services directly.
