Our interview questions are created by writers, almost all of which, have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.
Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website. Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews. For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.
The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview. We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers. We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples. That is not the purpose of our website.
Veterinary assistants provide medical attention and care to animals under the supervision of a qualified veterinarian or veterinary technician. They spend their work day bathing, feeding, and exercising animals, administering medications and vaccinations, cleaning and sterilizing equipment, operating rooms and examination rooms, collecting blood and urine samples, and restraining animals during treatments or examinations.
Becoming a veterinary assistant does not require advanced education. Many employers hire applicants with a high school diploma or equivalent. However, you will need to complete a period of on-the-job training before being entrusted with handling the animals independently. Prior experience working with animals can give your employment prospects a big boost. Critical thinking, problem-solving and active listening skills are essential in this role. Most important is a genuine love for animals. Animals that are sick or injured are more likely to bite and scratch because they are frightened or in pain. The ability to stay calm and think quickly when faced with an aggressive animal is one of the most crucial traits in a veterinary assistant. Doing an internship will give you a first-hand look at what this role entails and will also give you the competitive edge over the other applicants.
Your replies to all interview question must reflect your passion for animals and emphasize your knowledge of what this job entails. You want to be able to convince the interviewers that you are the best candidate for the job with your strong, compelling answers.
