Resources for Employers

  • Get to Know the UF Student Body
    • Utilize the UF CVM Admission Statistics to learn more about our students.
    • The UF Career Connections Center also offers data on graduation, including where students go after graduation, salaries, bonuses, motivators, and job search resources utilized. (Note: to find veterinary-specific data, make sure to select ‘Veterinary Medicine’ as the degree type)

 

  • Recruiting – Virtual
    • UF CVM Career Email
      • Submit your job posting to be included in our career email that is sent on the 1st and 3rd Friday of every month to our DVM Students, CVM Grad Students, current offshore students in UF clinics, Residents and Interns in the hospital, and our last 5 years of alumni.
      • Complete this form to submit your job posting. Each posting will be included in one email and can be updated or re-posted by re-submitting the form.
      • UF CVM Career Email Archives can be found here
    • Social Media
      • Our UF CVM Careers Facebook page is a great way to connect with students and alumni. You are welcome to post any position announcements or interesting career information that you’d like to share, and we will share them onto the main page.
        • Note: Please post these as regular posts and not ‘job postings’ through Facebook.
      • If you are an alum of the college, you are encouraged to join the UF CVM Alumni Facebook page and LinkedIn group. You can post announcements in either of these groups.
    • Gator CareerLink (GCL)
      • This is our UF student and alumni job database where you can post positions at no cost.
        • Note: Including the words “veterinary”, “veterinarian”, “DVM”, or “animal” in the job posting will result in your position view-able through our CVM widget here.
      • You can post veterinary technician, DVM, part time, full time, relief, externship, summer, and many other types of positions in here – all are welcomed!
    • Externship Database
      • Our students utilize the externship database when searching for externship opportunities. The curriculum committee approves these so there may be a delay before you are added, but this is another great resource (in addition to GCL) to advertise externship opportunities.
    • Class Officers
      • To reach out to a particular class year, you can contact any of our UF DVM Class Officers via email. You are welcome to reach out to them to spread emails and other announcements.

 

  • Recruiting – On Campus
    • Career Day
      • The University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine Annual Career Day is hosted in collaboration with the UF Veterinary Business Management Association (VBMA).  This exciting event welcomes practitioners, employers, practice managers, and veterinary professionals to our campus to connect with our students in person.

    • Other Events
      • We are happy to work with you if your organization is interested in hosting a stand-alone event, such as an informational session or workshop.
