Students in the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine at Virginia Tech now have access to a national database of career opportunities.

To better serve students, alumni and others, the VRMCVM has joined together with the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), the Maryland Veterinary Medical Association (MVMA), the Virginia Veterinary Medical Association (VVMA), and many other professional organizations to participate in the Veterinary Career Network (VCN).

The Veterinary Career Network is a network of associations, schools and colleges of veterinary medicine that are dedicated to providing electronic recruitment services to the veterinary medical and animal health industries.

“The Veterinary Career Network is an excellent technological step for the college,” said Dr. Michael Reardon, veterinary career advisor. “It makes the hiring process more efficient for both job-seekers and employers.”

Potential employers have the benefit of posting job opportunities to only the college or to the entire VCN community. Postings visible only to members of the veterinary college will continue to be free of charge while postings to the entire VCN will incur a standard VCN job-posting fee.

Students have the advantage of uploading their resume into both the college and VCN systems in a single step. In addition, they can also view job openings in both systems in one search.
