I'm finishing up a doctorate in sociology. Writing my dissertation as we speak and trying to keep my eye on the prize instead of just blowing it all off to go ride.

Chemical engineer. My company makes filters, dry scrubbers, and media that cleans nasty or dangerous gases out of the air. I work in the research and testing dept. about 15 feet from a lab filled with all sorts of chemicals. Pay is lower than I could get with my degree, but it is nice having a zero-stress job, and a 15 minute commute.

When things get slow, I fire up the tablet or go bug the project engineers at the other end of the building.

I'm a bit torn to be honest. Small animal will definitely happen and that is my main focus. I've been thinking about doing a mixed degree more often though. I see myself living far enough in the country that knowledge of equine and large animal medicine would be beneficial.

I was a tech for about 10 years but out of it for about 5 years. It's all about the staff you work with. It's weird now when I see the new drugs and I can't figure out what they're used for even with the generic name (which is a usual tip-off)

ah, you're a young buck then. The breaking point for me was when the pharmacists coming is started being younger than I was. Talk about depressing.

just do your research on the lifts problem solved!

but really, that's awesome. my BA is in sociology, but i could never go all the way with it. it was just a nice stepping stone to what i eventually want to go to grad school for.

good luck with that dissertation

Well as you know a small animal practice has the perks large animal does not (easier hours i.e. not having to be on call, clients come to you, more lucrative, etc, etc). You seem rather sharp so I'm happy to hear you're considering a mixed degree (I work with horses so a smart equine vet is a treasured one!).

If you ever need it, I know many of the top equine vets in the area and can hook you up with them. The NJ/PA area is not as scenic as the Galapagos but you'd learn a ton from some of the best vets in a very equine saturated area.
