Hi there! Carol again.
When I was growing up, I was not aware of the many animal-related careers that exist. Fortunately, as my career evolved, I’ve found ways to “bend” my job toward animal-related activities, but know that others struggle with the same inclination to do more for animal well being in their own field.
One reason for launching Fanimal is to help people learn about how to do just that…do more for animals…whether that is in their personal or professional life. Below are a few strategies for exploring animal-related careers, gaining skills to become more competitive, and connecting with some of the world’s leading animal organizations.
Once you have exhausted these, and are ready to take it up a notch (or ten), you may want to consider my career counseling. Each year, I work with a select number of individuals one-on-one to set goals, design a plan, and encourage growth in your professional life. If this sounds like something you might be interested in, let’s talk! Please email me here.
