2012 is just about upon us, and whether or not you are a resolution-maker, it’s a good time to think about how you are going to make the most of this year, which promises to be a banner one for the animals. With the number of vegans exploding, undercover investigations breaking constantly, the health benefits of a whole food vegan diet becoming obvious, and people becoming more and more aware of what’s going on vis a vis animals, we are truly poised for a breakthrough year.
While we at Our Hen House are mostly in the business of helping people create change for animals within their everyday lives, regardless of what they do “for a living,” we certainly hope that some of you will make the move into animal-friendly jobs this year. With that in mind, we will spend this week, leading into the New Year, highlighting some jobs that just happen to be looking for talented individuals (like you?) to come fill them.
We are starting the week with news of a whole range of exciting positions, from physician to web designer, that are available with Dr. Joel Fuhrman, one of our very favorite health gurus. The fact that Dr. Furhman is looking for so many people to join his team is proof positive of the exploding success of his approach to health, which is largely based on the health-giving properties of plants. If you are anywhere near Flemington, New Jersey, a dynamic and exciting future may await you there. The positions currently available are:
Full-time family physician or internist – specializing in nutritional and natural methods to join Dr. Fuhrman’s Medical Associates. Candidate must be a practicing nutritarian.
Full-time Motivational/Food Addiction Counselor – PhD, Masters in Social Work or similar degree required. We are looking for a highly motivated, dynamic individual. Experience in nutrition and motivational speaking would be a plus. Job duties will include assessment, result tracking, maintaining compliance and motivating new clients in both corporate and private as well as motivational speaking on nutrition and food addiction at events.
Full-time Video Production Specialist- seeking professional with experience in all aspects of video production – including camera work, lighting, audio setups, editing, encoding. Candidate must possess the ability to manage video projects from conception to production; strong working knowledge of video formats and playback codecs, editing and best practices; proficiency in After Effects, Avid, Final Cut Pro, or Premier Pro. Plan, develop, and execute pre, studio/field, and post production to create a variety of video products for broadcast, DVD distribution, webcasting, and video streaming. Must include a link to your reel along with resume.

If you are interested in any of these positions, send a resume and cover letter to jobs[at]drfuhrman.com. But if these don’t tickle your fancy, stay tuned to our posts for the rest of the week. With any luck, we’ll come up with something that’s just right for you.
Also on the subject of what to do with the rest of your life, don’t miss our post from last summer, entitled “In the Market for a (Vegan) Job?” Among other things, it talked about incredibly helpful resources for the compassionate job-seeker, like the jobs section of the popular website, Vegan Mainstream. VegNews.com also has a thorough job listings page. And be sure to “like” the Vegan Jobs page on Facebook.
