Veterinarian Assistant and Laboratory Animal Caretaker
Career Tech Foundations
Did you know that in 2008, 220,400 people in America worked in the animal assistant field. The career I would like to be in is a Veterinarian Assistant and Laboratory Animal Caretaker. The reason I want to be in this career field is because I love animals. I always enjoyed watching Steve Irwin, The Crocodile Hunter, he was a great inspiration to me. I have been interested in animals since I was about six. I will be researching the working conditions, education, job outlook, earnings, and related occupations for this field.
Nature of Work
Training, Qualifications, and Advancements
My feelings about being a Veterinarian Assistant/Animal Caretaker are good. I really like animals and I feel good about this job. It has a good job outlook, it pays okay, but I don’t care because I will be doing something I love. I want to move to Florida and work at The Animal Kingdom at Disney World and take care of all of the animals. Since I love animals and Disney this would be a great job for me. I would like to have a family and go to work every day and be happy with what I am doing, and if I can go into this career I will be. I look forward to being with and caring for the animals and having a friendship with them. The one thing that I am not looking forward to is cleaning the cages and things like that. My learning experience over all is that I still want to be a Veterinarian Assistant or Animal Caretaker, and even though it does not pay the best I would still like to be in this field.
