First job interview? An opportunity, not a problem
  1. Jenny Walton

    Jenny Walton qualified from the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies in 1998, after which she spent two years in mixed practice in Beverley in East Yorkshire. She currently works in a mixed practice in Alnwick, Northnumberland. She is a past president of the Associaton of Veterinary Students.


SOME of the trials and tribulations, from an employer's point of view, of the recruitment process were described on pages 96-99. In this article, the tables are turned and Jenny Walton presents the job-seeker's perspective. Given that veterinary interviews are as varied as the jobs themselves, the key to success, she says, is good preparation.
