Review:

AVA Career Connect offers employers access to a specialized audience of veterinary professionals in Australia. The career portal’s parent organization, The Australian Veterinary Association, comprises some 6,000 veterinary professionals and has supported Australia’s veterinary industry for over one hundred years.

  • Employers can advertise casual, internship, contract, or full-time positions and connect with professionals at all career levels.
  • The site features a range of job posting packages, including enhanced and premium options for increased visibility.
  • AVA members receive a 50% discount on all job posting packages.
  • The site features a resume database of veterinary professionals for employers to browse through.
  • Jobs are sent to candidates via targeted emails with the “Premium" job posting option.
  • Job postings are more affordable than competitors, such as Veterinary Jobs Marketplace.

AVA Career Connect vs. VeterinararyCareers.com.au:

Like AVA Career Connect, VeterinararyCareers.com.au is a job board that caters to Australia’s veterinary job market. While VeterinararyCareers.com.au is by far the more affordable platform for employers on a tight budget, job posts are only active for 14 days at a time, compared to AVA Career Connect’s standard 30-day listings.

AVA Career Connect vs. Seven Animal Health:

Unlike AVA Career Connect, Seven Animal Health does not feature the ability to post jobs directly to the website, making the former the more convenient option for employers. AVA Career Connect features a resume database and premium job posting options, which Seven Animal Health lacks, making the former the more feature-rich platform for employers.

AVA Career Connect vs. SEEK:

SEEK is one of Australia's most popular job boards. Although the site offers access to a large audience, it is a general job board, whereas AVA Career Connect allows employers to connect with a more targeted pool of veterinary professionals. While the former charges A$198.00 +GST per nonmember post, SEEK's pricing is varied and dependent on location.
