Dr. Barrow has always enjoyed teaching! We welcome veterinary students who are exploring the idea of equine-exclusive practice. We occasionally have opportunities for a summer intern or ride-along who is not yet a veterinary student. Due to insurance requirements, no one under the age of 18 is permitted to ride along.
Below, please see our requirements for our employment positions. These are general requirements only, and their listing does not mean we have an active search going on at the moment. If you have questions, please call our office for more information.
RECEPTION/SECRETARIAL If you are interested in pursuing employment with BVS in the clerical arena, please note the following: 1. We must have a resume. We are a paperless clinic, and in considering an applicant, we like to know that their computer skills at least extend to being able to produce a resume. 2. Resume must be faxed or emailed as an attachment to us. Please do not include a resume in the body of the email. Fax is 770-464-3674, email is firstname.lastname@example.org 3. Any working knowledge of horses is a plus, even if you have not worked "hands-on" with them in a while. Any knowledge or experience you have can be included either in the resume or in a cover letter (which is fine to be in the body of the email). 4. Pleasant, efficient, and professional telephone skills are non-negotiable. We expect the applicant to know - or learn rapidly - how to operate a multi-line phone, scanner, fax, and copier with document server. 5. Applicant must be able to lift 30 pounds (as they are often responsible for inventory shipments).
TECHNICIAN/ASSISTANT If you'd like to be considered for a tech/assistant position, please be aware of what we look for and expect. 1. All guidelines regarding resumes and computer/telephone literacy still apply, since our techs need to be as computer- literate (if not more so) as our veterinarians. 2. Horse handling experience is necessary. 3. Must be able to lift and carry 50 pounds. Our equipment is often heavy and must frequently be moved from place to place. 4. Applicant must be aware that this is an outdoor, physically demanding job. Appointments are not canceled due to inclement weather, and technicians are expected to be prepared for any weather that might arise by having appropriate clothing, footwear, gloves, and headgear on hand. 5. Technicians need a valid drivers' license and must be comfortable driving large vehicles. (This is in case a doctor is injured or cannot drive - worst case scenario. Our large truck is a Ford F250 with a modified bed.)
