Here’s another gig that rocks… especially if you’re into animal husbandry.
Because many of you are looking for a job — or, if you’re already working, likely keeping your eyes open for a better job — we occasionally feature what we like to call Sweet Jobs, or gigs that rock for whatever reason. This week’s pick:
Love animals? Have a bachelor’s degree in biology or a related field? Or experience working in a facility that cares for animals, like a kennel or farm?
This position reports to the Chicago Zoological Society. You’d care for zoo animals, feeding and closely monitoring them; we hear they’ve got and more. The job also includes maintenance of buildings and grounds, and you’d assist zoo guests, too, taking “initiative to facilitate guests’ appreciation of animals and enjoyment of their zoo visit,” the post reads.
The ideal candidate has excellent interpersonal skills (though what job doesn’t require that nowadays?) and knowledge of natural history, zoology or animal husbandry. Yeah, we didn’t know what “animal husbandry” was either. It’s “, feeding, and tending domestic animals, especially farm animals,” according to Dictionary.com.
Spanish fluency’s also a plus, and pay ranges from $20-$24/hour.
