Laval, QC (May 11, 2012) – Breton Communications is proud to announce the launch of a new online job search tool powered by North America’s leading recruitment website, Local Eye Site (LES), for eyecare professionals.
“Our collaboration with LES is a fantastic opportunity to use our network of media outlets and provide the necessary resources to help practitioners with their employment prospects,” said Martine Breton, president of Breton Communications. “The fact that Local Eye Site itself has such a strong network of affiliates really corresponds with our mission to support ECPs in all their endeavours.”
The online portal capitalizes on the extensive audience reached by Breton Communications’ impressive range of media options and LES’s key industry partners – 20/20 Magazine, VMail, Vision Monday, International Vision Expo, Review of Optometry, Review of Ophthalmology, SightNation, the Canadian Society of Ophthalmic Medical Personnel and Jobson Medical, to name a few.
With the two companies each reaching large segments of the national and international optical industry, both job seekers and hiring businesses alike can broaden their searches beyond traditional borders, opening the door to exciting possibilities.
“Together, LES and Breton are breaking new ground in the eyecare industry,” said Brad McCorkle, founder and president of Local Eye Site. “The combination of LES technology and US reach with Breton’s expansive audience and influence in Canada will result in the most effective recruiting resource in North American eyecare.”
