How does it work for fill in jobs?

When you sign up as a fill in doctor, we'll send you jobs that match your preferences so you're in the loop!  When you see a date you want to work, book it right away and the job is reserved for you. You'll get the employer's contact info so you can get in touch with them and discuss the job details. You can cancel a booking at any time. 

If you see a job you like but the pay is too low, you can submit a bid for the amount you want to be paid. The employer will consider your bid and either accept or decline. 

After you work the employer will pay you directly for your optometric services as they do normally.  Then you can leave a review for the employer on FIED and they will do the same.

How do I submit a bid?

Let's say you see a fill in job you want to work, but the pay is too low.  No problem. Tell the employer how much you want to be paid by submitting a bid. The employer will review your bid and accept or decline.

How much does it cost?

When you book a fill in job it's just $5 and you'll get the employer's contact info so you can get in touch with them right away. 

It's free to submit a bid.  If the employer accepts your bid, your booking is confirmed and your account is charged $5. 

Apply to full time and part time jobs for free! Get in contact with the employer  directly to discuss the job details.

How does it work for full time or part time jobs?

It's free to apply to full time or part time jobs!  We'll send your profile and contact info to the employer, and you'll get their contact details so you can get in touch with them right away.

Why do I need to create a profile?

Your profile is how employers get to know you a little better.  It's basically your resume, professional references, and reviews from past employers. When you book a job, apply for a position or submit a bid, the employer will see your profile. Your profile is also where you tell us what type of jobs you are looking for so we can match you with the jobs you want.

How does the waitlist work?

If a fill in job has been booked by another doctor, you can get on the waitlist for that job and if the current booking falls through or is cancelled, you are next on the list.  We'll let you know you right away if that happens so you can get in touch with the employer.

What if I need to cancel a fill in job booking?

You can cancel a fill in job booking at any time and we will inform the employer.  We know things happen that change your schedule. However, remember that a booking is a commitment and the employer is counting on you.  When you cancel a booking, it shows up on your public reviews and employers will see how many bookings you cancelled in the past.

What if the employer cancels a booking?

If your employer cancels a booking, we will let you know right away so you can get in touch with them if you need to.  Our service consists of providing a connection between you and the employer, but we cannot guarantee you will be hired so there are no refunds. You can see how many bookings an employer cancelled in the past on their job post.

What is a "Doctor for Hire" ad?

Post a free "Doctor for Hire" ad and let employers know that you're available to work.  Specify what type of jobs you're looking for, when and where you're available and what your daily minimum daily pay amount is and we'll match you with the jobs you want. We'll notify all the employers in your area about your ad so they can check it out.  If they're interested in hiring you, they can get in touch with you directly at no charge to you.

Why do I need professional reference letters?

Getting professional references from friends and colleagues builds trust and reputation in the FIED community.  When employers see references on your profile it instills confidence as an indication of your personal and professional character. When you receive a reference you can read it and decide if you want to approve it or not. Only references you approve will appear on your public profile for employers to see. Request a reference by going to PROFILE > REFERENCES.

I connected with an employer on FIED.  Can I work for them again outside FIED?

You bet!  Once we connect you with an employer, you're free to work for them as often as you want.  Our fees are for putting you in contact with employers for fill in jobs, regardless of whether you are hired or not.
