From your hospital careers web page, I have seen that you are presently recruiting a Veterinary Assistant within your institution. Offering an extensive industry experience, well-developed field knowledge and expertise, and multiple relevant skills and abilities, I believe I am a perfect candidate for the role and that I would successfully execute all duties associated with the job.
I have completed a bachelor's degree in Veterinary Science at the University of Guelph achieving the best academic results possible (4.0 GPA) which means that I was among the top 2% of the students there. Moreover, I served as an Animal Volunteer for one year and this activity helped to significantly improve my teamwork skills and provided me with a great chance to learn more about my passion which is veterinary medicine. Besides that, I acquired important critical thinking and analytical skills and further developed my ability to work and function well in a team setting.
On top of my education, my professional background includes two years of working as a Veterinary Assistant at VCA Animal Hospital in Ottawa, Canada. Besides executing various basic animal care duties, I also:
- Conducted laboratory tests, collected and prepared veterinary samples, and maintained a sterile, organized, and surgical environment.
- Managed the professional lab equipment and tools, maintained patient files and records, and collected payments.
- Assisted in the creation of treatment plans, scheduled appointments, answered the phone, and executed other clerical tasks as required.
- Oversaw and coordinated multiple daily animal hospital operations, ordered missing supplies, and performed other duties as assigned by supervisor.
I am a Certified Veterinary Technician offering exceptional manual dexterity, strong attention to detail and accuracy, and excellent work ethic. It would be a great pleasure to grow my career with an organization like yours and I have attached my CV for your further review of my qualifications.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
