Virtual Recruiting Resources
We now have our very own University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine Job Board. There is a free option to post on this job board along with upgraded options. We are referring all UF CVM students and alumni to this job board.
If you missed the fall virtual fair and are interested in connecting with our graduating students and can’t wait until the March 2021 fair, this is for you! You can purchase this downloadable file containing resumes of graduating students that opted to include their resume in the book. It is not an exhaustive list of all of our graduating students. If you participated in the fall virtual fair you already have access to most of the resumes. You can download those resumes in lieu of purchasing this resume book.
Post your opportunity on our Facebook page. UF CVM Students and Alumni follow our page and will be able to see your posting. Be sure to include pertinent details about your opportunity and include some interesting pictures to encourage more engagement.
Include your opportunity in our email that is sent out on the first and third Friday of every month to all of our UF CVM students, offshore students, interns, residents and last 5 years of alumni.
