You probably know by now all job postings sound the same. “We are hiring a full-time associate vet for a caring, progressive, fast-paced, state-of-the art practice where clients are family, and our close-knit team sings Kumbaya at lunch.”
Well, maybe not the Kumbaya part.
We are an efficient hospital so let’s cut to the chase. We need someone whose alarm goes off early, wants a career not a job, loves to learn, can practice great medicine (and a lot of it), and believes that despite the ups and downs, life is pretty darn good. Vocal talent is optional. We don’t really sing Kumbaya at lunch.
You can start to get an idea of who we are and what we do from our website, denherdervet.com, or our Facebook page @denherdervet.
For Ideal Candidates
Like to learn and want to learn?
Work and think efficiently?
Take initiative and see things through?
Bond easily and authentically with clients?
Hold an "old school" work ethic where the day starts early?
If this sounds like you, contact Dr. Tom Taylor 319-232-5292 or via email.
