It's difficult to say for sure without seeing your resume and knowing the types of jobs you are applying to. If they are positions not related to your vet tech background, a potential employer may be wondering why you are switching career fields and could potentially overlook your application. If it's appropriate, include a cover letter with your application that explains your interest in their company and the position. This could help better clarify your interest in the position as opposed to an employer just seeing your past experience. Also, don't be afraid to follow-up with the companies you are applying to. This shows initiative and can help demonstrate your genuine interest in the position.
