Working with an Animal Health recruiter is an intelligent and strategic move that can give you a competitive edge over other job seekers and candidates in the marketplace. And working with The VET Recruiter® can give you an even bigger advantage, since we have a proven track record of success spanning more than 25 years.

 

How The VET Recruiter helps job seekers and candidates

If you are a professional within the Animal Health Industry or Veterinary profession, it’s a good idea to send your resume to The VET Recruiter. You don’t even have to be actively looking for a new position. After you send your resume to us, we will contact you if we have a suitable opportunity that matches your background and career goals. At some point, we may have the ideal situation for you, whether it’s next week, next month, or even next year.

Below are best practices for sending your resume to The VET Recruiter:

  1. Please do not send more than one resume. Your resume will be reviewed and considered for all searches in the context of your goals and our guidelines.
  2. Please do not follow up on your resume. Let us contact you as needed. Time prevents us from taking all calls.

 

Our business at The VET Recruiter is to make the best match between candidates and employers. We come across new job opportunities on a daily basis, and many of these opportunities are in the “hidden job market,” and you won’t be aware of them anywhere else. We have helped hundreds of professionals within the Animal Health, Pet Products and Veterinary industries advance their careers. We invite you to tell us your career goals and we will let you know if we come across a great job opportunity for you.

The VET Recruiter is a full-service executive search firm and NOT a job board. Your resume and profile will only be viewed by recruiters who understand the importance of confidentiality for professionals when they’re considering a career move. In addition, keep in mind that there is no cost to use our services if you are a job seeker. Our fees are paid by the employer that hires you.

 

What to expect from your Animal Health recruiter

The VET Recruiter receives a large volume of resumes daily, which requires us to adhere to a standardized method of evaluating and responding to each resume that we receive. We review and evaluate each resume in terms of the specific position for which the candidate applies and also in terms of the candidate’s place-ability with current and future searches. If we believe we can help, we will interview you over the phone. If this interview goes well, we will present your qualifications for each of our searches that meet your goals and our guidelines.

Please understand we may only be able to help if you have experience related to the position or positions for which you are inquiring. If we are unable to consider you for present searches that match your experience, location, and salary requirements, your resume will be entered into our database for future consideration. If this is the case, please do not be offended, as we simply are unable to immediately help everyone who contacts us.

If we cannot help you at the present time, reasons may include the following:

  • Experience outside of our normal disciplines or industries served
  • Lack of minimum education required by the client company
  • Not enough experience or too much experience for a given position
  • Lack of eligibility to work in U.S.
  • Inability to relocate
  • Compensation requirements above the normal range for your experience
  • You are a practicing veterinarian and don’t have a license in the state of the open position

Frequently asked questions about an Animal Health recruiter

Why work with an Animal Health recruiter?

An Animal Health recruiter can help boost your career potential. Recruiters do more than land good jobs. They also provide career advice. During this Internet era with thousands of job boards and online recruiting sites, the idea of working with an Animal Health recruiter may seem unneeded. However, nothing could be further from the truth!

Consider this: a study conducted by the International Association of Corporate and Professional Recruitment indicates that recruiters are involved in about half of senior-level job changes. Candidates who use the services of a professional recruiter have the “inside scoop” about the organization, the position, and the intangible factors that the hiring manager would like to see in a candidate. In addition, candidates who are presented by an Animal Health recruiter are better prepared for job interviews, which gives them an advantage over candidates who are not represented by a recruiter.

And as mentioned above, recruiters have access to jobs not advertised on the Internet or anywhere else (the “hidden job market”) and they provide no-cost career guidance and interview advice to job seekers and candidates.

 

What Can an Animal Health Recruiter Do for Me?

Using an Animal Health recruiter can help to broaden the scope of your job search. They provide you with access to new career opportunities that you wouldn’t have on your own. Some organizations hire search firms because they don’t have the time or the resources to conduct the search themselves and prefer the expertise that a recruiter brings to the process. Many employers don’t advertise job openings because they don’t want to sort through hundreds of resumes. Recruiters also handle confidential searches that an organization would not post publicly.

Below are additional things that an Animal Health recruiter can do for you:

  • They can save you time by eliminating unsuitable jobs that don’t match your qualifications or career goals.
  • Once they identify you as a suitable candidate, they can coach you throughout the employer’s hiring process.
  • They can help you with interview preparation. You will learn who will conduct the interview, as well as obtain insight into personalities and what areas of your experience you should emphasize or avoid discussing during the interview. Most people can obtain information about the employer beforehand, but your recruiter should have details about why the position is open, or what happened to the individual who formerly held the position. Your recruiter should be able to provide you with information that you couldn’t obtain anywhere else.
  • They assist in negotiating with the employer, negotiating on your behalf during salary discussions. Even though the employer pays the recruiter’s fee, it is in the recruiter’s best interest to make sure that you obtain a compensation package you deserve.

 

Should my recruiter specialize in my industry?

Yes. You have a much better chance of being placed in the position you desire by working with an Animal Health recruiter who specializes in your field.

It is important to note that with low unemployment rates and an enormous demand for qualified employees, many new recruitment firms have popped up. However, firms with established records will probably have more solid industry contacts.

 

Questions to ask your Animal Health recruiter

  1. Do you specialize in my particular industry? As mentioned above, you have a much better chance of being placed in the position that you desire by working with a recruiter who specializes in your industry.
  2. How long have you specialized in my market niche? Once again, recruitment firms with established records will likely have more solid industry contacts.
  3. Name some companies where you have successfully placed candidates in my field. The answer will provide more insight into the recruiter’s experience and whether they represent organizations where you’d like to work.
  4. Is there a charge to me for your services? You want to work with a recruiter who is paid by the employer. There should not be a charge to you.
  5. Does your firm recruit nationwide or only in a single city or region of the country? If your interest is national in scope or if you seek a higher-level management position, then select a firm with a more extensive reach.
