If you work in the Animal Health industry or Veterinary profession and you feel as though you’re in a professional rut, there are steps you can take to get out of it. A successful career is about both advancement and enjoyment. They go hand-in-hand, and I’d like to present some steps for achieving both.

First, focus on value and on results. Identify the value that you possess for your current employer and document and record the results that illustrate that value. Then think of ways that you can both improve those results and increase your value.

Second, invest in yourself through continuous training and development. I can’t stress this step enough. You should always be working to become better at what you do and how you do it.

Third, strive to increase your networking efforts. I always say that it’s not just what you know or who you know, it’s BOTH what you know and who you know. Build relationships with others within your chosen field. You can do that through social media, but meeting face-to-face at tradeshows and conventions is an even better way to network for your career.

And fourth, reach out to a search consultant with a track record of success, a recruiter who has experience placing professionals just like you. An experienced Animal Health recruiter or Veterinary recruiter has the expertise and information necessary to help you navigate the employment marketplace and reach your goals.
