Dear Vet, You have limitless opportunities if you can dare Part 1
Like most people who studied veterinary medicine, I initially wanted to study human medicine. But I am so glad today that I eventually studied veterinary medicine! First of all, I hate being on one spot, sitting all day to attend to patients. And then I love the adventure of being a businessperson who moves from one place to the other and also have time to sit and do creative things. All these I have found being a veterinarian.
I started my career as a sales representative in a multinational company. This was a great privilege for me! And I am ever appreciative of this golden opportunity as it really opened my eyes to the possibilities in veterinary medicine. I still consider a sales representative job as one of the best jobs that a veterinarian could have because it will expose you to so many possibilities.
