AABP Job Fair

Practitioners, are you interested in hiring a new associate to fill an existing position or expand into unchartered waters?
Students, are you searching for the "perfect job" after graduation?

The AABP invites you to attend the 10th Annual AABP Job Fair, to be held from 6:00-9:00 PM on Friday evening, September 15, 2017, at the AABP's Annual Conference in Omaha. The job fair will be an opportunity for employers to meet with large numbers of veterinary students interested in food animal/mixed animal positions in private practice, industry, government and academia. The job fair is open to students who will graduate in 2018 and veterinarians seeking job opportunities. The job fair is not open to underclass veterinary students or those seeking externships.
