Laurie Ballow, iHire’s Product Manager, worked with a cross-functional team to do extensive industry research and conduct surveys via phone and email with optometry job seekers as well as hiring managers.

“We previously had 8 career titles for our iHireOptometry members to use for job searching or hiring in optometry, including several that were combined into a single category in our database,” said Ballow. “We determined that we could improve by separating some existing titles as well as adding new ones like Orthoptist and Optical Lab Technician.”

“We hear time and again that our industry-focused approach makes a big difference in finding the right job or the right talent, and we’re constantly striving to do better,” Ballow continued. “We’re excited to see how this enhanced list of eye care career titles will help candidates as well as employers in the optometry field meet their goals.”
