Marion Veterinary Clinic Team Roles
Customer Service Representative
Do you enjoy helping others and managing the details that define excellent customer service? The front desk is the backbone of a veterinary clinic, and the customer service representatives who manage this area are responsible for client communications and coordination of services.
To succeed in this role, you must enjoy people and pets. Computer skills, a pleasant phone voice and the ability to listen to clients to understand their needs is very important. Every phone call and client visit is an opportunity to maintain the culture of caring in our organization.
Do you have an interest in helping veterinarians and veterinary technicians care for patients? A normal day for a veterinary assistant may require them to fill scripts, keep exams rooms cleaned and prepped, set up lab work, help with inventory, update medical records, assist with nursing care, and provide a customer care rep with a second set of hands at the front desk.
This is a great way to learn and decide if you would like to continue your education to become a veterinary technician.
Veterinary technicians are animal nurses. A normal day for a veterinary technician may require them to treat animals with medical conditions and diseases, obtain and record patient case histories, collect specimens and perform laboratory procedures, prepare animals for surgery, assist in diagnostic, medical, and surgical procedures; expose and develop radiographs (x-rays) and communicate with animal owners.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, veterinary technicians jobs are expected to grow by 30% from 2012 to 2022. This positive job outlook is higher than average for most occupations.
If you are not yet certified as a veterinary technician, there are several programs in the Southern Illinois area to obtain a Associates Degree in Veterinary Technology.
