      "The most appealing part would be healing a sick or injured animal. I like the fact you are helping an animal who can't explain its issues, yet you can use your knowledge to fix it. I also like the fact your type of work can vary every day and a new challenge is presented to you."

      "The chance to interact with both humans and animals is very appealing to me. Knowing that I would be making a difference to the health and welfare of animals would be hugely gratifying and humbling. The vast array of animals that I could be working with excites me as I would get the chance to learn about many different body systems and adaptations of different species. Variety and unpredictability are also appealing parts of the job. No two days are the same, and this means that you are constantly being challenged and presented with new problems to solve."

      "I believe this is fully treating the animal from consultations to surgery or treatment and the animal recovering. You can then see the effects of your hard work in real life."

      Rachelle's Feedback for the Answer Above

      This sounds highly rewarding :) To keep your answer more personalized, try using 'I' language in place of 'you' language. I've provided an example for you below.

      "I believe the most appealing part of a role in veterinary medicine will be the opportunity that I will have to treat each animal fully. This full-circle treatment could include the initial consultation to surgery or treatment and the recovery phase. I will have the opportunity to see the effects of my hard work in real life."

      "Being someone that loves puzzles, I find being a vet is much like that. I like the thinking that goes along with both of these. Then successful cases that you get, especially those that You may not feel as confident in. Lastly, the variety of cases you may see."

      Rachelle's Feedback for the Answer Above

      I recommend being more direct in your answer. For instance, when you refer to 'the successful cases you get, especially those that you may not feel as confident in,' can you provide more thought here? As someone who loves puzzles, what aspects of your thinking are you using compared to your veterinarian activities? Try to be as detailed as possible :)

      "What's most appealing is that I can work with and treat animals, but also work with the owners. Pets are family. By treating a sick pet, you are helping an owner feel more at ease and allowing them to feel as if their family is being well taken care of."

      Marcie's Feedback for the Answer Above

      Nice answer! Wanting to help not only animals but people as well is an admirable goal. Clearly, the two go hand-in-hand so it's great that you recognize this and mention it to the interviewer. You could also add a sentence or two more and emphasize that you're the type of person who interacts well with both animals and people.

      "The most appealing part of being a vet is the ability to connect to a community by ensuring the health of their animals. Coming from a one health perspective I understand how my knowledge in animal health will impact human and environmental health. I am glad I will have the opportunity to contribute my skills."

      Marcie's Feedback for the Answer Above

      Good answer! Definitely consider adding more detail around your assertion that connecting to a community is the most appealing part of being a vet for you. You'll want to add in another sentence or two about how helping animal owners is what you most desire to do, outside of helping the animals themselves. If you can include a quick example of a time when you helped an owner during a past job or internship and how you gained satisfaction from this, that would be great and would help to make your answer more memorable to the interviewer.

      "Veterinarians can not only make a difference in the lives of the animals they help but also in the lives of people. These people can be owners of the animals, but they can also be consumers. Veterinarians have the ability to affect the health of animals and people alike. This is why I value the One Health principle."
