Career Tips


"Consider Apprenticing...
There are many different aspects to my job and I would recommend for a new person to find the part that really interests them and focus on being really passionate about it and pursuing that aspect -- making the glasses, for example, or fitting and selling the frames. Becoming an apprentice gives you many different options." (Managing Optician; 2010)
