Roger, a 2-year-old mixed breed dog, was wreaking havoc on his owners’ home. His fuzzy face had won their hearts at the local shelter, but the first time they left him alone at home, he chewed his way out of his crate, tore open couch cushions, chewed up the remote control and three pairs of shoes, then spewed the contents of the trash bag all over the house – all within a period of 90 minutes! To make matters worse, he had urinated and defecated in the middle of the living room.
The Office of Career Management’s newly-opened job board, which is part of the Ohio State Veterinary Medicine Career Center, gives students, alumni and employers extensive resources for networking. With the online job-posting board, employers can post an unlimited number of job opportunities for Ohio State students and search for resumes. Employers also have the option of posting job openings nationwide to reach hundreds of potential candidates, since the Career Center is part of the Veterinary Career Network.
