Metrolina Eye Care Training Program Opportunities: Looking for go-getters, tech smart individuals to be assistants to the optometrist at the six locations - Monroe, Indianland, Matthews, Rock Hill, Randolph Road, and University. The responsibilities would include answering phones, restocking materials, and learn directly from the optometrist about optics, the physics of light, and basic algebra on how to determine prescriptions. Part time, full time, no weekends, and you will get paid. If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact Stacie at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions, please see Ms. Lawson.
BigFuture Days Virtual College Fairs: College Board will launch its inaugural BigFuture Days, a regional series of virtual college fairs for high school sophomores and juniors to help connect them with hundreds of colleges, admissions officers, and current college students. BigFuture Days are designed to give students a tailored experience so that they can establish connections with colleges and take action on important college planning tasks, like building a college list and identifying scholarships to apply for.
