Relax. By taking a a small amount of steps you can almost ensure that your hard work sees your application make it to the top od the pile.
Find all the jobs available. Associating with other horse lovers is an important way to see what's available. Let people know that you are keen to work with horses. You can also look for possible positions through equine industry employment listings, or even horse-related job fairs, listings through pro organizations and alumni groups, and equine trade shows and expos.
Networking. Once you obtain your experience, education, training, stay in touch with everyone you met along the way - make the effort yourself - take them out for drinks and tell them your interests.
Horse-related job fairs often are also a great place to go as many potential employers could be there. You can meet them and see what they are about and they get to meet you too.
Whilst equine employment specialists may charge in support of their services, they are a important way to uncover many jobs that are available - they are a great place to start and can help you with many aspects from finding the right job for you to assistance with applying and interviewing.
Learn how to compose a resume if you do not know. Write it specifically for the person who will be reviewing it. Ensure all important information such as education, experience, and qualifications are on your resume. Keep it brief and focus on the important experience.
Nail the interview. Arrive early and be presentable and appropriately dressed for the type of position you are applying for - don't wear a 3 piece suit for a hands on barn position. Think of questions you may be asked and have answers ready. Say thank you and follow up.
Don't give up and you will get your dream job working with horses
