Advancing your career in animal health information webinar

Kansas State University's Master of Agribusiness (MAB) and Biomedical Sciences (Veterinary) Master of Science programs are presenting a free webinar for professionals in the animal health and companion animal industries. The webinar, “Advancing Your Career in Animal Health,” will be offered two times on Thursday, April 2 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.
“Following a successful face-to-face seminar, we were encouraged by animal health professionals in the Kansas City area to offer the session to a wider audience,” Deborah Kohl, Master of Agribusiness program coordinator, said. “The webinar format should make it easier for people to attend virtually, regardless of their physical proximity to Olathe, much like our academic programs.”
Webinar participants will learn what employers have identified as the knowledge needed to gain new career opportunities in Animal Health. You will be able to schedule a consultation with animal health faculty to discuss career options while analyzing the latest research and interviews with industry leaders.
“If you are considering a career change into the animal health or companion animal industries or are looking for information on how to advance your current career in the industry, this webinar will provide valuable information,” Paige Adams, Biomedical Science (Veterinary) program faculty advisor, said.
