I would love to work in the animal welfare industry for an organization such as the ASPCA. However I am pursuing my degree in business administration with a minor in small business management. I'm currently trying to figure out how to use my degree to accomplish this goal. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Have an Answer?
The best answer I can give you at this time is research ASPCA to see what their organizations need. Your business degree could be used somewhere in the organization, or one that is similar if you are willing to relocate. Now once you complete your BS/BA I would suggest you find a Masters degree program that aligns itself with your career goals.
If you have electives you need to complete then you, could take those courses in something the ASPCA needs. Too often people forget that there is business side behind the non-profit organization. There are also other organizations with the same philosophy.
Go to the following website and do a little research I would suggest you begin with your search with animal welfare go to www.bls.gov
This is a start and I hope this helps.
