Mark to speak on Ophthalmic photography and job search advice

Mark photographs patient's retina with a digital fundus camera

On Monday, November 1, I'll be giving a presentation on how I discovered the field of Ophthalmic Photography (photography of the eye) and then review the techniques used to have the position created just for me.

The presentation is geared mainly toward helping photographers explore other areas of imaging, how to find those positions and convincing an employer that you are the right person for the job – regardless of age or experience.

We'll also look at 15 job hunting tips that will help any person in any career field find their next job.

The free presentation starts at 8 p.m. at Mackenzie's Grill (at the Holiday Inn) at 4181 West 150th St. in Cleveland. (Just north of the I-71/West 150th St. exit).
