Message from the Presidents: Introducing Hire PGA - a concierge service for employers

Posted By Conor Hammonds, Monday, October 12, 2020

Dear PGA Members:

As shifts in the industry persist, we as a Guild are focused on getting our members back to work as swiftly, safely and securely as possible. We are tackling this on two fronts: first, by establishing safety standards and educational opportunities via our “COVID Safety Protocols for Producing Independent Productions,” hosting weekly roundtables, and developing the “Tips from the Field” resource on the PGA website; and now, by helping our members get back to work through our new “Hire PGA” initiative. “Hire PGA” is the Guild’s proactive effort to connect employers directly to members of the Guild seeking jobs.

Our thanks goes out to the Employment Committee Chairs and the staff that have been working tirelessly on this program. “Hire PGA” has been fashioned as a concierge service for employers as it offers them four distinct opportunities to access the Guild’s membership with their opportunities, including: inclusion in a new weekly Job Listings bulletin, hiring events like the Job Forum, speed interview sessions, and custom hiring events. PGA staff is facilitating this new service. You can find all of the details here:

We hope that we can enlist your support in two ways. First, if you are returning back to work and looking to crew up, we encourage you to utilize "Hire PGA" as a way to get the word out and potentially expand your candidate pool. We also hope that you will help us spread the word with employers. In order to make the program as robust as possible, we began testing the waters over the past month by sending a few different job opportunities - across documentary, narrative, and, as they have become more common, live streamed events - directly to members. These roles encompass the entire producing team, from executive to line producing. We are very excited to roll this out broadly to the full membership as we seek to assist our members in returning to work.

If you have any questions or ideas, please reach out to

Thank you.

All the best,

Gail Berman            Lucy Fisher
