Practice Opportunities Network

The Practice Opportunities Network website is no longer accepting new postings. Existing postings will still appear on the website until it is taken offline on June 30, 2022.

We are transitioning our job postings to The Ohio State University’s centralized system called Handshake. There are a great number of benefits to utilizing Handshake including the opportunity to reach all of our current students as well as students at other schools and colleges of optometry. Our residents and alumni may also utilize Handshake. Additionally, posting on Handshake is free and allows you to interact with students in a variety of ways including online messaging and the well-established Ohio State career fair event.

All instructions for how to utilize Handshake are available on the Buckeye Careers website at:

If you have questions about utilizing Handshake as an alum or resident, you may contact Mollie Workman in the Buckeye Careers office at Questions specifically for the College of Optometry can be sent to Dr. Tim Fries at

We hope that this change enhances opportunities for you to connect with students and alumni who will be an excellent fit for your practice.
