    Hi guys,
    I'm hoping to go into the opticians industry hence I'm trying to apply for optical assistant jobs. Does anyone have any info on how I can apply?
    There's independent stores that I can hand my cv in but they don't get back to me probably cause I have no experience 😭 also big chain stores such as specsavers etc who require experience. Do you think I can hand my cv in the big optical stores? Any help shall be appreciated x

    My local Specsavers were hiring recently and they said no experience was required on their posters. Just go in to as many stores as you like, be confident and ask if you can hand in your CV etc. You'll be fine. Alternatively, large stores might post their vacancies online, so you can apply there.

    Some stores eg independent smaller ones don't have "optical assistant" roles / they don't name it optical assistant . How can i apply for these stores? I.e what do I say when I hand in my cv
