According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics in the USA and similar bodies in the UK, Australia and worldwide, opportunities for Veterinarians are set to climb by 19 percent through 2026, while roles for Veterinary Nurses and Veterinary Technicians will increase by 20 percent in that same time frame.
The veterinary industry is filled with people who love animals and who are willing to go the extra mile for their care. By your very nature, however, many of you tend to be more focused on a job that you love and the animals you’re able to care for, rather than the money you’re making. Sound familiar?
The fact that you love your job and the animals that you care for doesn’t have to mean that you let the opportunity for a salary increase pass you by – and if you’re ready to increase your income, you shouldn’t have to miss out. These strategies will help you confront the issue of your raise and help you to negotiate an increase your income whilst minimising any stress about it.
