"Overall my boss was very pleased with my performance. My last job was working retail, staying late and working early morning and late night shifts. I kept a positive attitude in stressful situations and worked well with my team. I learned a lot about how to give a customer the best experience, and I think my boss would say that's where I showed the most improvement."

Before you go down your list of furry and feathery friends, take a look at the website for the clinic. What types of animals do they specialize in? Even if you have worked with cows and chickens or other animals the clinic does not serve, you probably learned some valuable lessons and skills. Most vet clinics work with a range of animals that might include turtles, bunnies and birds. Each type of animal offers different challenges for a vet assistant. Since you will primarily be handling the animals to administer shots or treatments, show the interviewer how your experience will help you to be an asset to their clinic. Apply the skills you've learned from working with animals to show you are confident and capable of dealing with any kind of animal that comes through the door.
