An aspiring zoo professional is anyone who has decided that working with exotic animals is the right career path for them. You may be a volunteer or intern trying to get your first paid position. You may be a recent college graduate or someone looking for a career change who is interested in entering the zoo field. Aspiring zoo professionals are often folks who are having difficulty getting that first paid position or are finding themselves confused about how to even start on their journey.

If this sounds like you, check out the resources AMZAP offers in this section (starting your career / find a mentor / career paths / volunteering / internships / applying for jobs).  


If you're not quite sure you fit into this category, AMZAP has resources for students as well and information for current zoo professionals

Kesha Phares and sea lion Maggie demonstrate training.
