Wondering if there's any way I could find a horse job in Rowlett, Texas.

Since graduating high school, I've been looking for a job just about anywhere I can find. So far, no luck. I have no previous job experience and don't know what I'm doing, plus I deal with social anxiety which kind of limits what I can do, so it's been tough. I would really like a job working with animals, and have applied to small animal clinics and doggy daycares and the like, but it would be awesome if I could get a job working at a stable or riding school.

I occasionally volunteer my time at a barn, and I'm planning on clocking in some more hours because it's something that I do enjoy, so I do have a little experience with horses and working around a stable.

I'm prepared to take whatever I can get at this point, but if you have some advice for me, I would be so appreciative. Thanks!

Have you tried approaching barns and studs with your resume? It could be a good idea, because if they could use some extra help every now and then they could give you a call. They might even be able to direct you somewhere that needs a new worker. Get your name out there. You're in Texas, I'm sure you'll find something!

Nope, haven't tried that. I'm wondering why I didn't think to do that myself. I guess it's the anxiety. Anyways, I'm hoping that I'll find someplace nearby. I live in a suburb, but looking at google, there are a few places around here that I could try.

Check out yardandgroom.com - it's a horse-job website.

Thanks DA. I checked it out, and the jobs in my area seem to want more experience in training than I currently have. However, I think that if I continue to volunteer and get more experience, something will turn up eventually.

Huh. I got a hit on yardandgroom.com. Not for a job, but for an internship, which is fine with me. I need to get a little more information about it, and then we'll see what happens.

Well, never mind. Got an answer today, they're not interested in me because I asked too many questions . The other place I applied to can't hire me because I can't get to Sachse when they want me to. *Sigh*, back to square one.

So how many questions is too many? What did you ask? Interviews can be useful for learning when you don't get the job. Prepares you for the next interview.

Just two. What hours would I be looking at, and what are the accommodations that they provide? Not unreasonable questions I think, but they told me that I asked them too early, and I should have focused on telling them about myself. I did do that, but it's not like I have an impressive amount of experience. I just have never had the opportunity that others have had. I mentioned my other selling points, but I don't think it's what they wanted. So, really, I think it was a combination of me asking questions when they didn't want them and my own lack of hands on experience that turned them off. At this point, I don't care, I'm past it, but that's not to say I didn't learn from the interview.
