So graduating college isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. I’m going through surges of pessimism (there’s always someone out there who has more experience than me) and optimism (although no one seems to be hiring, jobs are always opening up due to unseen circumstances). You have to wonder how the education system in the United States has gotten to the point that recent college graduates are fighting for the minimum wage jobs that don’t even require a degree. I’ve submitted 14 applications (that I can count off the top of my head and that’s not including to any veterinary clinics) in the past two weeks for minimum wage, no educational requirement jobs. I have called a lot of these places only to hear, “If we are interested we’ll call you”.
I’ve been spending my days driving around Dayton looking for veterinary clinics and dropping off resumes. I’ve dropped off about 13 resumes at different clinics (again, off the top of my head- I’m probably forgetting some. I have had an interview at one and got a second interview so I’m really hoping that it works out.
It is just frustrating because I need to work in a vet clinic in order to apply for vet school. I also just need a job in general so I can pay for my life. I’m applying to more than just veterinary clinics but it gets difficult when even fast food restaurants are turning down people with bachelors degrees.
I just want to save the kitties, and maybe the doggies too.
Boo, my cat who went to kitty heaven last year, is my inspiration to continue doing everything I can to make it to vet school. The bond that can happen between humans and animals is one of the most extraordinary parts of life and I want to do anything I can to help preserve that bond between people and their animals.
