My career for our first career cluster is Animal Trainer. An animal trainer is in general a person who teachers animals specific responses to specific conditions or stimuli, which may be for the purpose of companionship, detection, protection, entertainment, etc. In addition animal trainers do all the dirty work like take care of the animals as in clean, feed, etc. I chose animal trainer for a few reasons. Based off of my personality tests and such, it seemed like the perfect match as a job. It’s definitely not a job I’d prefer for this project or my career but for this cluster it’s the best choice I have.
There is a Pedigree dog commercial I see on television which catches my eye and my heart. It tells us to not pity a shelter animal. When I decided to become a Veterinary Technician, I anticipated working in a veterinarian office. Approximately one year ago, I began volunteering for the Denver Dumb Friends League at the Buddy Center in Castle Rock. This experience has led me to consider working in a shelter instead of a vet office. A shelter is not necessarily the easiest place to work, and I have certain criteria I will look for in a career. I enjoy a variety of responsibilities as opposed to doing the same thing every day. In addition to working with animals, I enjoy interacting with people, especially kids. One of the main reasons I want
I plan to achieve my goals by working to the best of my abilities, and to participate in programs that will help me gain the knowledge I need in order to become an excellent veterinarian. I have been doing a lot of research into different program through 4H that will help me on my career path and have been applying to these different programs. I have also been researching colleges that I would like to attend, what programs they have to offer and if they would best fit my personality and career
As I started my search for a college, I began to wonder what career field I would enter. I have always enjoyed building computers and coding, but while attending MATES (Marine Academy of Technology and Environmental Science), I also developed a passion for the Earth and the animals encompassed in its environment. After much research I arrived upon the field of Computer Engineering, a field that both satiates my thirst for technology and allows me to help the environment. Obtaining a degree in Computer Engineering would allow me to complete a multitude of such tasks. One example would be the development of submersibles to map ocean currents, like the Drake submersible developed by Rutgers, which glided across the Atlantic and provided new information to oceanographers. Other sensory technology could also be developed, which could be made cheaper and improved upon, such as remote
With my background on hunting and the outdoors, I decided it would be nice to have a job that I would love doing. You know what they say, if you have a job you love you never work a day in your life. In this case, I want to become a Game warden or wildlife and parks expert. These two jobs I would love to do. In order for me to be able to work as a game warden I am going to have to go to a four year school.
The unknown struggle of strength and weaknesses that this field fights with. Multi-tasking is something that can be super challenging at times, and sometimes can feel almost impossible. It may feel like sometimes the paycheck isn’t worth all the hard work that is put into the job. The heart pounding situations that can lead to life or death with one wrong move. The random fits of exhaustion you get when you finally sit in your cold truck on a 102-degree summer day. People assume that Animal Control Officers are just dog catchers, but they do so much more and it is not easy.
These two articles entitled, “Making a Career Decision” and “Keeping Dogs Healthy” were both about veterinarians. The purpose of these articles was to inform the reader about deciding to become a veterinarian and veterinarians who specialize in caring for dogs.
Taking care of animals has always has always been lifelong dream and becoming a veterinarian is the only career I could ever imagine myself pursuing. Ever since I was a little girl I have always felt a connection with animals. Getting accepted to the University of North Carolina at Greensboro would be a colossal jump start to my future. If I was to get accepted to the university I plan to major in Biology and the Pre-Professional Veterinary Program. This program and degree match my interests and gives me the opportunity to commence my lifelong dream of working with animals and being able to care for them.
I wish to pursue a course of study in agricultural education at Southington High School because it will give me the skills I need to take care of animals. I loved animals since I was little and I would like to take care of them. Back then I wanted to become a vet. As I got older and my interest in animals deepened, I want to become an animal breeder. Since animal breeders work closely with their type of animals, they will spend a lot of time with them. So my love and interest in animals makes this career more desirable for me. Working with animals at Southington will give me a head start for my path in becoming an animal breeder. I have had experiences with agriculture but I would really want to further develop it. A few years back I went on
While at Neumann I hope to receive my bachelor’s degree in Biology. With my degree in biology I hope I can intern, and volunteer at a local animal rescues in Baltimore. Over the summer I became certified in nutrition for dogs, cats, birds, and reptiles. I currently work at an organic pet store that allows me to help animals with allergies. My education goals are to pursue a career in Physical Therapy. I would like to specialize in Neurology, so I can help multiple sclerosis patients. Currently, I’m trying to intertwine wanting to become a physical therapist, and still be able to give back to animals that are looking for their forever home.
Another example of how animals in the entertainment industry are susceptible to harm and cruelty through training means is the unethical use of training weapons. Since the very start of animal entertainment, weapons such as bull hooks have been used to physical harm animals in order to achieve whatever the person with the bull hook desires. According to National Geographic writer Jason Bittel, “Ringling elephants spend most of their long lives either in chains or on trains, under constant threat of the bull hook, or ankus—the menacing tool used to control elephants.” Unfortunately, the practice of bull hooks and other harmful weapons in training goes far beyond the Ringling Company. The use of harm against any living creature in order to receive
I have always had an interest in plant based diets and good health. I would like to obtain a degree in plant-based nutrition while at the same time obtain a degree in mechanical engineering. First, I want to be challenged beyond the traditional boundaries and learn in depth the various chronic diseases billions of citizens today encounter today and why they encounter them, so I can prevent those diseases myself and help other citizens prevent them. Second, I have always had a passion for assisting individuals regardless of who they are or how they treat me. When I see an individual in poor health, I feel bad for them and cry on the inside since I know how being in detrimental health feels and it is not pleasing. In middle school and until sophomore
Looking into the future, I can see myself going into a 4 year university and then pursuing my doctoral degree. Although there are many fields that I wish to pursue, I believe I have narrowed it to either being an avian veterinarian or a micro robotic engineer. Becoming an avian veterinarian will allow me to, not only care for birds of various species, but I will also be able to, possibly, open my personal avian care clinic, which I have always wanted. If that plan were to fail or if I were lose interest in avian care, I would try to become a microrobotics engineer. Micro robotics had been an interest because it seems interesting creating robots that are efficient at doing tasks that could benefit the scientific community and that in turn would
My main passion is simply the word Agriculture. I am raised in the world of Ag, and I plan to pursue a career in the near future. I show livestock all year round this would include; Beef cattle, Boer goats, Pygmy goats, and Pigs. I enjoy every moment of this experience. The banners and trophies I get awarded for all my hard work getting the animal prepared for presentation. All this enjoyment I participate in 4-H and open shows I can take part in the years. Besides enjoying it in that way I want to further my education in Animal Science Ruminant Nutritionist. In case you question on what would I do in that field. For myself I would be completing or mixing new feeds to ensure our livestock are growing healthy and strong for human consumption.
