Spring is here and it's the best time of the year to recruit and hire an Optometrist!  Here's a brief O.D. recruitment questionnaire that will help you organize your thoughts and think about what's most important as you create a job post highlighting your opportunities biggest assets and begin fielding inquiries from national Optometry job-seekers.

Does your practice need an experienced O.D., a residency trained Optometrist or are you considering a new grad O.D.?

Are you looking for a retail oriented Optometrist or a Medical Optometrist?

What does a normal work day look like?

Remember to direct job-seeking ODs to your website.

Do you have a full-time position or are you searching for a Part-time or PRN Optometrist?

Will you need the incoming O.D. to work any evenings or weekends?

What is your timeline for hiring?

What is unique about your practice and the opportunity you have?  The O.D. job marketplace is very competitive, so think about the reasons an energetic, hardworking OD candidate should pick your opportunity instead of going to work for your competitor.

Has your practice identified a talented Mentor who will take the incoming OD under his/her wing?

How many patitents will your newly hired O.D. see?

Are you a word of mouth practice or a mix of advertising/marketing and referrals?  In other words, how will the incoming doctor get patients?

What will you do to help your O.D. get connected in your community?

List the equipment and instrumentation you have.

What are your relationships with area Ophthalmologists like?

What is your salary range?

How do productivity bonuses work at your practice?

Describe your benefits package.

How much PTO will the incoming O.D. get?

Learning / Education and Professional Development is very important to job-seeking Optometrists. Describe your CME reimbursement/allowance.
