CareerSource CLM hosting online hiring event for UF Veterinary Hospitals in Marion and Alachua counties

Job seekers with a passion for animals are invited to attend a virtual hiring event for the University of Florida Veterinary Hospitals in Marion and Alachua counties on Tuesday, August 2, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The free online hiring event is being held by CareerSource Citrus Levy Marion and its affiliate Talent Center at the College of Central Florida in partnership with CareerSource North Central Florida.

Andrea Abrams, manager of the Talent Center, said, “Because UF Veterinary Hospitals and their satellite clinics span multiple locations in two counties, we thought a virtual hiring event would be the most convenient way to connect interested job candidates with hiring managers.”

Abrams stated that the event will allow candidates to explore career opportunities at UF Pet Emergency Treatment Services in Ocala, as well as at the new 40,000-square-foot UF Veterinary Hospital at World Equestrian Center and small, large, and equestrian facilities at UF in Gainesville.

Full-time and part-time positions include veterinarian technicians, assistants, client service representatives, and veterinarians, among others. Several of the available positions do not require special degrees or certifications.

“We’re using a tried-and-true, user-friendly virtual platform that got a workout during the height of the pandemic,” added Abrams. The online event will provide applicants with a one-on-one experience that includes video interviews.

Kelly Rick, UF Veterinary Hospital manager for equine and large animals, said, “We want to grow your abilities. We want to grow your skills. Our goal is to help promote you in your career.”

Twenty years ago, Rick began her career at UF Veterinary Hospitals as a clerk, and she stated that she is proof of that commitment.

“This organization grew my career. It is a great place to have a career for a lifetime. We truly believe that a good employee is a great asset regardless of where you end up, whether you stay within the hospital or work for the College (of Veterinary Medicine) or UF in general,” said Rick.
