Question:

All these things should be considered when choosing a career because they will help you find out what is most suited for you. Even though my top three interests don't sound appealing to me, they are still important to consider in order to get a job that you enjoy.

Where Am I Going?

My career as a Veterinarian.

Veterinarians often examine, research, diagnose, and treat a large variety of animals with medical problems. They use lots of medical tools ranging from x-rays to surgical equipment. The job is very similar to the services a physician provides to treat humans. Veterinarians have a very busy and and sometimes unplanned schedule. Veterinarians who treat horses or food animals must travel between their offices and farms and ranches. They work outdoors in all kinds of weather and may have to perform surgery, often under unsanitary conditions. Though being a veterinarian may be quite demanding, the pay is very rewarding with a median of $84,460. Employment of veterinarians is projected to grow 12 percent from 2012 to 2022, which is about as fast as the average for all occupations. A veterinarian career is in the Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources Cluster. Something interesting about this career is that most times they're on call to go to peoples ranches and farms to treat a large animal there.

How Do I Get There?

College

I've done a little bit of research, and I think I would like to attend Texas A&M. This college is located in College Station, Texas. I chose this college because it is the closest college that teaches a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (D.V.M. or V.M.D.) degree at an accredited college of veterinary medicine. It is roughly four hours away which is not to far for a valuable education. I believe they have all the programs and classes I will need. For this career path, I will need a bachelors degree to enter the veterinary school, and when I graduate I will become a vet by earning a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree and a bachelors degree. The approx. tuition cost at this college is $22,224. College can get a bit pricey, so I will hope to qualify for a scholarship. Two that I will be hoping for are Bio-medical Sciences Program Scholarship or Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship.
