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.
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.
