Most of us young ODs or optometry students are considered part of the millennial generation (whether we like it or not). With that being said, our generation is known for doing things differently, especially when it comes to looking for jobs.
We are more likely to use social media to check out a new office and doctors before we even meet them, we are known for being more demanding when it comes to pay and work hours/days, and we also tend to more easily leave a job when we are unhappy as compared to our older colleagues.

What do you think? Does this fall in line with how you plan to search for a position after you graduate?
