Well, the way I got my first job as an optometrist
was first to figure out, where I wanted to live. And optometry is a wonderful career
and that you can certainly live in any part of the country. So first I you know, determined
where I wanted to live. And then beyond that, I had to figure out what, how I wanted to
practice. Did I want to be in a group or on my own or in a hospital. And for me, I wanted
to be within a larger HMO system. So my first job was in a larger HMO system . Where I was
one of a number of optometrists in a big clinic. And I really enjoyed that. It was a great
way to meet other colleagues. And to work alongside lots of other eye doctors and ophthalmologist
and optometrists. And it was great for the patients. The patients needed any other care
beyond optometric care. We could easily send an order to have them be seen by other doctors.
And the pharmacy was close by and so it was wonderful. Well, that was how I had my first
job. It was really, I’m trying to figure out how I wanted to work. And then go out there
and just apply. And try to find the right jobs for how you want to practice.
