We caught up with our recruiting experts, Bridger Davenport Costin (B) and Kelli Dupree (K), both seasoned Vision Expo West attendees, to ask them a few questions about the event. From years of experience in eye care hiring, they share great advice on using the event’s momentum to find top talent for your eye care organization. They also let you know what to expect at the conference:

Do you have any advice for first-time attendees?

B:  Let your outgoing self shine — this is a great opportunity to meet people with similar businesses who face similar problems. There’s a lot to be learned!

K: Vision Expo is a great chance to mingle and meet with potential jobseekers and OD Students. Try to make connections and follow through with them! Also, there are tons of free events to attend, so it’s a great time to further gain knowledge.
