It’s a job fair that’s virtually gone to the dogs. And cats. And other assorted animals.

The Veterinary Career Network is hosting a virtual career fair on Thursday, Sept. 27 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. EST.

Registration for the career fair is free and allows participants to chat online with more than 100 employers from across the country, including Banfield Pet Hospital, Lap of Love Veterinary Hospice and Vetco Clinics.

Available positions include veterinarians, interns, vet techs, vet assistants and practice managers.  

Animal-loving job seekers can search by employer name, location, position and species focus — perfect for all you cervid fans out there (a mammal of the deer family — yes, I had to look it up).

And if you’re not paws-itively sure you know what career you want, check out our guide to 20 jobs and side gigs for animal lovers.
