Vision Expo to host virtual career event

Vision Expo has announced plans to host the Virtual Career Zone, a virtual networking event designed to connect young professionals and students with optical companies. Set to take place on Tuesday, Sept. 22 from 11-11:55 a.m. EDT, the virtual event is inspired by Vision Expo’s on-site Career Zone and will include a panel discussion moderated by Matt Geller, OD, Co-Founder and CEO of CovalentCareers, followed by opportunities for virtual networking with individual company leaders from National Vision, Shopko Optical, MyEyeDr., and Luxottica.

The event will begin with a 30-minute panel discussion – “Getting hired! How to be desirable in this market, how to stay relevant, and how to virtually network effectively” – moderated by Dr. Matt Geller. The panel aims at providing insight into the new challenges associated with searching for a job during a pandemic, with panelists offering actionable tips and career resources designed to help young professionals adapt to the current demands of the job market.

Panelists include:

  • Dr. Bill Werner, National Vision
  • Tracey M. Glendenning, O.D., FCOVD, and Director of Residencies and Externships at MyEyeDr.
  • Dr. Thomas Bobka, Shopko Optical
  • Paul Case, Senior Manager, OD Recruiting at Luxottica
  • Dr. Scott Seaburg, Clinical Director, Luxottica Eye Care

Following the panel, attendees will have the opportunity to join five-minute conversations with the participating companies of interest to them. This will provide opportunities to ask questions and learn more about specific companies and career paths.
