Work in non-fiction production? Come meet those who are hiring Producers, APs, Post Supervisors, Production Managers, Line Producers, and Coordinators in unscripted fare, plus network with fellow PGA members, too.
The event is basically like speed-dating, but in this instance you are courting your next big employer. The panelists rotate to tables of 4-5 participants, spending 10 minutes with each group, hearing each member’s "elevator pitch" of themselves as individuals (NOT projects). At the end of the night, the executives leave with a binder full of your resumes. Past job forums have landed many members jobs -- some within days or weeks of the forum.
These "speed-dates” will be with some of the biggest production employers in the city that might otherwise take you weeks or months to set up.
The following companies are scheduled for the upcoming Job Forum, with many more to be added soon...
Atlas Media Corp
ITV Studios America
