Employer Opportunities

Currently hiring or planning for future growth? Do you find it difficult to hire or keep competent and dependable pet groomers?  Would you like to have a steady flow of skilled employees?

At The Academy of Pet Careers (APC), we understand the difficulties of hiring quality staff, so we have developed systems to help you find the right person. All of our graduates are highly sought after by facilities around the Midwest. The APC has been educating pet professionals since 1993, and all of our instruction is hands-on, in a real working environment.

Option 1: Job Posting

This is our most common option. We can post your job on our job board as well as send it out to local graduates. Because of the popularity with this option, there is a lot of competition for our graduates. This is why we offer options 1 and 2. 

Option 2: Send Us Your Untrained Employees

Often times companies have a great employee but they are lacking in the technical skills needed to become a trainer or groomer. Send them to the APC and we can offer them many flexible options to quickly become a professional. In many cases, the employee can go to school part-time and continue their employment while classes are active. In some cases, we even offer discounts to employers who want to sponsor a student.

Option 3: Externship Opportunities (Grooming Only)

Each one of our grooming students is required to do an externship before they graduate. These externships are short, unpaid, working experiences designed to give the student a taste of your facility. We only offer this opportunity to a limited number of local grooming salons. If chosen you will have first crack at every student that graduates from our school.
