Build an Employment Brand to Hire Top Talent

by Steven Squires on June 20, 2014

Employer Branding

Like every other buzzword circulating the internet these days, the concept of ‘employer branding’ has become the most recent bandwagon philosophy to spread like wildfire throughout the HR community. Employer branding, however, isn’t a new concept - nor is it something to be ignored.  For those of you who may not yet be familiar with the term, employer branding is the idea that companies can leverage the positive, exciting, and/or unique elements of their corporate culture to recruit quality employees and gain familiarity in the talent market as a great place to work.  Employer branding essentially allows smaller, lesser-known companies to compete with larger organizations for the best talent - and it works.

When one thinks about employer branding, one typically refers to big tech companies like Google, Facebook, or Amazon.com. I mean, sure they’re big, well-known, and successful, but how did they get to be so popular amongst job-seekers?  It could be argued that the sheer success of these companies attracted opportunistic job seekers looking to make a quick buck (which could be true), but what keeps the resumes flowing in?  I’d say their employment brand has something to do with it.

Popular companies, large and small, work hard to provide quality service to their customers while also treating their employees as equally valuable assets to the overall success of the practice. Providing reasonable but enticing benefits packages, unique team-building events, and financial incentives are just some of the ways successful companies recruit and retain their best employees. Furthermore, creating awareness for and cultivating your employment brand is just as important as marketing your practice’s products and services to your customers. Customer loyalty, revenue production, office efficiency, and practically every aspect of your day-to-day operations lay in the hands of your staff, and the future success of your practice will be determined by the team that you put in place.

Overall, an attractive employment brand can have a tremendous impact on your efforts in hiring qualified eye care professionals. Whether you choose to accept it or not, your company has an employer brand - and the time is now to start doing something about it. To help you get started, your friends here at Local Eye Site have put together a comprehensive ebook that will guide you through the process of developing an employment brand for your eye care practice.

5 Job Search Tips for Optometry Students

by Steven Squires on May 28, 2014

Get a Job

Few things in this world are as simultaneously necessary, stressful, and generally misunderstood as the job search process. You attend Optometry School for a number of years, maybe do a residency, work hard to absorb as much knowledge as you can, and then someone stands on a stage one day in May and tells you it’s time to face the reality of long-term, perpetual employment. You’re thrown into the job search with minimal preparation, and the worst part is you thought you were ready for it.

In this article, you’ll find out some of the five most important things Optometry Students should know about the job search process, before you turn the tassel. That way, when the time comes to finally begin your search, you’ll have a good idea of where to begin. Ready?  You will be after reading this.

Your Job Search Starts Now

Contrary to popular belief, the job search process doesn’t begin with graduation and end with an offer letter in-hand. Whether you’re a first year, fourth year, or completing your residency, the search for the perfect optometry job after graduation actually began the day you became an Optometry Student.  Those friends you made? They’re going to be your most trusted colleagues in the field.  Those ODs you worked for over the summer months? They’re the ones who are going to mentor you when you start your own practice.  Those professors who pushed you so hard? They become your network of esteemed professionals you can rely on for advice, recommendations, and endorsements.  The connections you make during your stint in Optometry School will serve to prepare you for life as a working professional, and there’s no better way to begin your career than with the support of a strong community of colleagues that want to see you succeed.   Don’t wait until your final days as a student to take advantage of the opportunities you have waiting for you now.  Get connected now so you have a strong support group when you need it to move on to your next phase in life.

Preparation is Paramount

Searching for a job isn’t something you can simply turn on and off like a Retinoscope.  You have to plan, prepare, and map out your strategy for finding a job after graduating Optometry School - and it’s not always as easy as it sounds.  The best way to begin planning your job search is to first determine the basic fundamentals for what you want in a career.  Where would you like to live? Do you want to start your own practice or work for an established practice?  What’s a realistic salary range you can expect to earn in the first few years out of school?  Answer these questions before you begin so you can set real expectations for opportunities that arise when you begin your search.  Furthermore, preparing a professional Resume and Cover Letter (or CV) is critical in ensuring you personal brand is ready for potential employers.

An Open Mind Leaves Room for Unseen Opportunity

Oftentimes, many people assume there’s going to be a perfect opportunity quietly waiting for them to graduate Optometry School.  This isn’t always the case, and it’s easy for students to get disappointed when their first job out of school isn’t everything they dreamed it would be in a career.  Sometimes the best jobs are in small offices, in small towns, or come in unusual packages.  Use these opportunities to move to a new town, get a fresh start, and make new friends along the way. You never know when that small town opportunity can turn into a big-time advancement in your career as an OD. Maintaining an open mind, especially in the early stages of the job search, will allow you to discover previously unseen opportunities that may offer you more in the beginning of your career than you originally thought you could obtain, so why not give the lesser-known options a shot?

Finding a Job Takes Time

The job search process is just that - a process. It’s not going to happen overnight, and it certainly isn’t going to be easy for everyone.  The job search will try your patience when employers wait forever to get back to you after you submit your resume, the interview keeps getting delayed because the only OD in the practice doesn’t have time to meet with you, or the administrator is too busy to send you that offer letter.  Overall, it’s a process that doesn’t always work the way you want it to, so use this time to develop your patience.  Maintaining a calm demeanor through the job search will not only help you in your career throughout life, but it will also prevent you from falling into obsession, worry, and chaos when the going gets tough.  Just remember: even though the jobs are out there, you just may have to wait a little to find the one you feel would be a good place to start your career.

Stay Focused & Positive

Finding a job can be a job in itself, so it’s important that you focus on your goals and don’t succumb to feelings of anxiety, negativity, or depression.  Set aside time each week to work on your job search, but also give yourself at least one day of worry-free relaxation so you can maintain a balance in your life. This will help you stay on track with your job search goals without causing you to lose your mind when it seems like you aren’t making any progress. Furthermore, using tools like OD Grad-Connect from Local Eye Site to discover opportunities for OD Students and Residents is an excellent was to zero in on job openings specifically offered to new graduates. Don’t lose heart and keep pressing on. Your time will come - just stay optimistic!

Overall, the job search process is something to be taken seriously, but it isn’t the scariest thing on the planet.  With a little time, preparation, focus, and a positive attitude, you can find yourself well on your way to building a career that you can be proud of year after year.

Fired Employee

Guest Post by Janelle Pauli from VisionWeb

Just about every business has hit a streak of dealing with employee turnover at one point or another. Sometimes it comes out of nowhere, and sometimes it happens all at once. And if it has happened at your eye care practice then you already know the effects of dealing with employee turnover. If you’re in the lucky group of small businesses who haven’t had to cope with employee turnover we’ve got a list of 4 ways your practice will be affected if it happens, followed by 4 tips for dealing with it.

4 Ways Employee Turnover Affects Your Eye Care Practice

Decreases Customer Satisfaction and Trust

The staff in your practice spend a lot of face time with your patients. And if your patients come into your office and see new faces each time, they might start to notice and wonder why you aren’t holding on to your employees. And especially when it comes to healthcare, your patients are going to look to do business with a practice they can trust.

Decreases Productivity

Whenever you lose an employee there is going to be work in your practice that isn’t getting done. Not only is that ex-employee’s work not being completed, but also it’s going to affect the productivity of the rest of the staff. They might be trying to pick up some of the slack and work left behind which will only cause their own productivity to decrease if the work keeps building up.

Decreases Employee Morale

This goes hand in hand with productivity. If your other employees are picking up extra work, it could affect how they start feeling about their role. Employee turnover creates distractions in the office, and can have a ripple effect, where you could lose more than just one employee in your office.

Increases Costs

So far, everything we’ve listed is going to affect the profit of your practice. There is the potential of lost sales and production delays if work is being left unfinished. It’s also going to take time to search, hire, and train a new employee to fill the spot – and time is money!

4 Strategies for Dealing with Employee Turnover

Competitive Compensation and Benefits

If you are suffering from high turnover take a minute and figure out why your employees are leaving. Are they unhappy with their pay? Benefits? Vacation time? We know this can be a hard one to compete with as a small business, but try and come up with some unique benefits that other practices in your area might not be offering.

Cross Train Your Employees

Cross training your employees is going to help your practice stay up and running if you end up losing an employee. Having employees that are comfortably able to help pick up some of the slack if this happens is going to be extremely helpful.

Think Long Term During the Interview

Make sure you’re taking the time to find quality applicants to fill your open positions. Take a look at the employees that have stuck around your office for years. What types of qualities do they offer, and what about their job is keeping them around?

Make Sure Your Software is Easy to Learn

To help lower costs of bringing on and training new employees, make sure that you’re using a practice management and EHR system that offers great training. And, if you use a cloud-based system, your new employees will be able to train on the system from any device with an Internet connection, even from home! It’s also going to help if your system has an intuitive workflow and looks similar to a paper exam. The first few weeks on a new job can be very stressful, so having software that is easy to learn and up-to-date is going to help your new hires feel more comfortable in your office.

7 Springtime Job Search Techniques

by Brad McCorkle on May 1, 2014

istock_000018046348large1

The weather is warm, the sun is shining, and the birds are singing; but have you sprung into action for your job search this spring?  If not, here’s 7 ways you can get started right now.

1. Prepare Properly

Being prepared is one of the most fundamentally important steps you can take in preparation for your online job search. Because the job search is one of those things we all must go through at one point or another, its helpful to have some sort of game plan set aside for when the time does come to get things going. One thing we recommend in preparation for the job search is that you set up a separate, professional email account to keep track of any correspondence that comes in from potential employers. We also recommend that you check your voicemail greeting to make sure it’s something that sounds professional - you’d be surprised how often people forget to change it from something they had in college! Another way you can prepare for an online job search, especially if you’re searching for a job in a different town, is to set up a P.O. Box in that town to use as a local mailing address. This will not only give you a local address to use on your resume, but it will also help you get established in a particular new location if you happen to get the job.  However you do it, be sure to prepare for job search success!

2. Set Goals

Setting goals is another fundamentally important step in the job search process - as it is in many areas of everyday life.  When you set goals, you’re allowing yourself to achieve large tasks in strides. The job search is a huge task, so setting goals is crucial to being successful in this process.  An example of a goal you can set in a job search is how many offices, and more specifically what offices, you reach out to in a given day. This can be defined as loosely as you want it to, but “reaching out” can generally mean a simple application submission all the way to placing a phone call to that organization to try and establish some sort of a connection. Either way you do it, having this type of goal is one of many you can impose upon yourself to ensure that your job search is a successful one.

3. Stay Organized

Being organized isn’t just a concept reserved exclusively for ‘Type A’ personalities. When it comes to the job search, maintaining some level of organization can be instrumental in making sure your efforts are effective when reaching out to potential employers. Whenever you start applying to jobs, keep the materials you use to apply to a particular organization in its own folder - apart from the materials you used to apply for other organizations.  This way, if you’re called in for an interview at one of those offices, you can easily refer to the version of Resume or Cover Letter you used to apply to that job. Nothing would be more embarrassing than to bring in a copy of your Resume to the interview and it turns out to be an older, outdated version - or worse - not relevant to the job in which you are interviewing for.  Staying organized can eliminate a world of hassle later down the road in a job search, so keep it simple and organize your search from the start!

4. Maintain Focus

Another helpful way to strategically plan your career search is to stay focused on your goals throughout the process. For most people, getting distracted online is always a potential progress-blocker - especially with things like Reddit, Facebook, and Pinterest always demanding attention. They type of focus we’re talking about, however, has nothing to do with external distractions and everything to do with how you’re conducting your job search. In the age of technology, there is so much information flying around on the internet that job searching has become a great big scavenger hunt. Instead of sifting through hundreds of random job listings for positions that may or may not even be from real employers, try using association sites such as the ATPO Career Connection, or VisionExpo’s VisionJobs page to find jobs in your field. Sites such as LocalEyeSite.com are great for concentrating your search efforts to only jobs in the eye care industry (we know - shameless plug).  Simply put, by honing in on the type of job you’re looking for by using niche job sites, you can easily stay on track and not lose interest in what you’re doing while conducting your job search online.

5. Get Connected

In life, who you know can be just as important as what you know. Therefore, staying connected is very important for making sure your online job search is a success at the end of the day. There are numerous ways to get connected - many of which are online these days! Social networking sites such as LinkedIn and Facebook are popular examples of how you can build an online presence and also connect with peers or influential people in the eye care industry. Other sites such as SightNation.com are excellent platforms you can use to stay in touch with other professionals in the eye care industry as well as search for jobs, start discussions, and learn new information about your profession. Similarly, in-person networking events are also highly instrumental in the social web-building process that is so vital for en effective job search. Regardless of how you do it, get connected to other professionals in your industry - you’ll be glad you did!

6. Stay Current

Another often forgotten bit of advice for approaching the job search process is to stay current on news and current events in the eye care industry. Sources such as VisionMonday, 20/20 Magazine, Review of Optometry, Review of Ophthalmology, and Opti-Guide (for our friends to the north) are all examples of news outlets that help eye care professionals stay up-to-date on industry-specific news that will likely prove to be helpful in the job search process. By keeping current with what’s going on in your industry, you’re not only showing potential employers of your ability to stay current and innovative, but you’re also learning new things about your profession in the process! So, long story short, don’t fall behind in your industry!

7. Be Persistent

The final bit of advice we have for you is to always be persistent in your job search. Times may be tough, but we promise that hard work and perseverance do pay off in the long run. When an employer reaches out to you, follow up with them!  When you haven’t heard from an employer in a while, follow up with them! Whatever you do, don’t apply for a job and then sit and wait for a response. Sure, it may take some time to get back to you (in fact, it’s typical that it takes about a week for some employers to even look at your submitted application), but it’s up to you to follow up. The worst they could say is no, so what are you waiting for? Furthermore, don’t apply for one job and then stop. Apply for a few jobs you feel would be a good fit for you, and keep doing that until you secure an interview.  Always have something in the queue as far as job applications are concerned.

Overall, the job search is a process that requires planning, research, persistence, and patience.  Following these simple guidelines will help you get off on the right foot and (hopefully) lead you to securing the job of your dreams in the eye care industry.  At Local Eye Site, we believe in your ability to find your dream job.  All you have to do is put in a little effort to make it happen!
