I was seriously praying at my desk today asking for a really good job to call me back after sending my resume out earlier this week and wouldn't you know right at the moment the ONE I really, really, really wanted to call back did!
I have an interview next Friday with my #1 choice for my future vet school. When I saw the position I was really excited. I would be a "Student Research Assistant" working in the College of Veterinary Medicine. The job seems very scientific and maybe something I would need extra training on, but I hope I get offered a position!
The description says I would participate in educational and research projects of their Disease Investigation Laboratory and their Wildlife and Environmental Health lab. Some of the responsibilities listed were
- isolation, identification and propagation of bacterial species of veterinary importance
- Participate and conduct restriction endonuclease analysis and other diagnostic methods
- Actively participate and assist in the field collection of samples, including blood and tissue collection and necropsies
Even though I am not familiar with a lot of what I will be doing, I am thrilled they even considered me. I am going to do research on the procedures and words I didn't know and of the facilities, so I go in prepared.
Wish me good luck!
