Careers Expo 2022 – Deakin University
The purpose of this popular annual event is to actively support our student members in their final year of study, to successfully launch their optometry careers.
Students will receive advice and information on making decisions about employment opportunities and understanding what to look for in employment contracts.
A panel of early career optometrists who have recently made the transition to practice will talk about their experiences moving from study to work. Students will have the chance to ask questions and find out what the experience was really like.
At the conclusion to the event, student members will be able to view videos from prospective employers who will provide information about the employment opportunities and contact details for further discussion.
