Recent Grad looking for advice/ help in obtaining a Career in the Equine Industry.
I am a 23 year old female that has recently graduated from Pennsylvania State University with a B.S. In Animal Sciences and a minor in Equine Science. I graduated in mid December 2011 and am currently back at home working a part-time job while applying to countless job openings, but rarely do I get any response back.
I wanted to know if there is something that I might be missing that would make me sound more professional. I have applied from jobs such as a groom to vet assistant and still have had no luck.
Most jobs seem to want professional experience and could care less about volunteer experience on horse barns, which is where my experience outside of college has come from.
I am currently in the Pittsburgh, PA area and looking to relocate towards the north east area such as Philadelphia, Delaware,Maryland etc. I am open to other places though as it seems like getting a horse job is like winning the lottery.
Please let me know if you have any suggestions, helpful websites, or any leads to something that would help me start a real career in the industry.
