I recently got a job working at a pet grooming, boarding, and daycare center, as well as observing and volunteering at an animal hospital. I am only going to be working there for about 3 or 4 months, because my boyfriend recently got accepted to law school in Chicago. I really love animals and I am hoping to become a vet tech someday. I just need some advice on what kind of jobs I will be able to get with the experience that I have. Many of the jobs I have looked at require more than a years experience or to be certified.

Many of the jobs you do look at in Illinois will require that you be certified because the laws of that state require that you must hold a license from the state of Illinois to work as a veterinary technician.

You can however take a position as a veterinary assistant to get actual experience in a veterinary facility. Otherwise grooming, boarding and daycare facility positions are options.
