  • The story of how she was able to help a veterinarian earn a significant increase in benefits and pay and the joy associated with that.
  • The job security and the low unemployment rate in veterinary medicine. Why she believes today is the best time in history to be a veterinarian.
  • What is surprising or unusual in the trends in the industry from her conversations.
  • Are student debt forgiveness offerings beginning to be more standard in employment contracts?
  • The leverage that veterinarians have in a job search given the need in the marketplace.
  • How not to use the leverage and stories of mistakes by candidates and how that impacts them longer term.
