Infographic: Hiring an Associate Optometrist – What to Look for on a Candidate’s Resume/CV
Is your practice looking to bring on a new associate optometrist? If so, there’s a good chance you’ll soon find yourself sorting through a pile of resumes and CV’s in an effort to find the perfect candidate. Determining if an applicant is the rock star O.D. associate you’re after based solely off a single document, however, is often a daunting task. Like anything else, practice certainly makes perfect, and reviewing dentist resumes and CV’s is no different.
As one of the nation’s most successful Vision recruiting firms, we’ve had almost years of practice pouring over resumes and learning how to separate the qualified from the unqualified. We’ve put together the following infographic with a simple breakdown of what to look for on a candidate’s resume/CV and hope it will prove useful as you evaluate candidates to find the best fit for your practice.
As we’ve seen over the years, however, taking the time to sort through applications, review resumes, and screen/interview candidates on top of handling the day-to-day operations of a busy practice can often prove to be both frustrating and fruitless for practice owners.
ETS Vision levels the playing field for independent practices and regional groups when competing for talent with the National Practice Management companies. We’ve conducted searches across all 50 states for thousands of practices seeking long-term Associates, potential partners and even potential buyers, and are in touch with more than 30,000 practices and practitioners every month.
