Drs. Heather Case and Elizabeth Johnson Million presented in person ‘How’d You Get That Job: A Story of Creating a Position and Navigating Career Transitions’ at the AVMA Veterinary Leadership Conference in Chicago on Sunday, January 9, at 10:30am. This workshop was presented in two parts.
Part one involved sharing lessons learned from the speakers' personal career transitions and discussing the experience (employer and employee) of creating a new position in organized veterinary medicine. Part two involved discussion about opportunities outside clinical practice for veterinarians and how many positions do not even exist yet. The activities throughout this presentation helped attendees explore/shift their career mindset, reflect on their purpose and values, and learn how to leverage opportunities.
