Veterinary Career Webinars: Explore Your OptionsVeterinarians interested in working in industry have a wealth of options available, ranging from R&D to business development, sales and regulatory affairs. But how do you make that transition? What kinds of opportunities are available, and how do the skills you’ve developed in veterinary school and private practice translate into the corporate/industry world?

Join the AVMA Veterinary Career Center on November 17 for a one-hour webinar to explore the opportunities that could be awaiting you in industry. Need a Change? Think Corporate Veterinary Medicine! will feature two expert panelists, who will help you understand:

  • What types of jobs are available in industry
  • What qualifications are needed for those jobs
  • How you can transition into the corporate world

From making the decision to seek an industry position, to finding the right job and actually making a successful transition, this webinar covers all the basics to help you succeed and thrive in a corporate veterinary career. The presenters, who will answer questions from the audience during the live webinar, are:

  • Karen Felsted, former chief executive officer of the National Commission on Veterinary Economic Issues (NCVEI) and a financial/operational consultant to veterinary practices and the animal health industry
  • Stacy Pursell, president of The VET Recruiter® and an executive search consultant and recruiter

If you’re unavailable on Nov. 17 but interested in the topic, register for the webinar and we’ll notify you when the recording is available for viewing on demand.
