the plan has been late october early november for getting back to work, but then i stumble across something like this job posting:

Veterinary assistant needed for a pair of small animal clinics. We are looking for a full time, permanent employee who is interested in pursuing distance education through Thompson University's Animal Health Technologist program. VOA certificate is an asset but not a prerequisite. You should be familiar with the entrance requirements for the TRU program and be eligible for application by September 2012.

You should initially anticipate performing reception duties and other office procedures as well as learning medical terminology, basic animal handling skills, participating in medical procedures as an assistant to the AHTs, and helping with clinic maintenance (ie. cleaning). AHT duties will be added as you progress through the university course. Please do not apply if you are not an animal lover, can't stand getting dirty, don't like the sight of blood, or don't think that a medical setting is where you want to spend the next several years. Please do apply if you like kittens, math and computers. And chocolate.

Reliable transportation is a must (car or transit) to the North Shore and downtown.

so. perfect.

I love that they put chocolate in the posting. Very classy.

So, what are you gonna do?!?! What school are you planning on going to? Is it the same one?

Agreed on the chocolate front. That is an awesome thing to put into a job posting :)

Kate, this looks really awesome, YAY!!

okay well, i should stipulate, although this is an ideal job description i don't think i actually will apply for a couple reasons... first i was dead set on douglas for 2012 and psyched for the classroom experience again. plus you get to go on co-ops through that program, as opposed to working just one place. and maybe this place would place a certain pressure on the person working there indefinitely after completing the training? alllso going pedal to the metal this soon might be not what the dr. ordered, workwise!

in the end i was just stoked to see more than a few postings that were like 'omg awesome'

Hey Kate, if you're not going to apply, would you mind if I forwarded this information to a friend of mine? It sounds pretty perfect for her, as well. What is the name of the company? Is the job still open for applicants?
Thanks :)
