ProductionHUB Launches New Website Features for Production Professionals
ProductionHUB, the pro video marketplace, announced new Website features that modernize the hiring (and client pipeline process) for production professionals. While the industry job network has grown robustly in the last few years, there was a need for additional options to support pros at all levels in their career. Now freelance crew — from camera operators and animators to makeup artists and set caterers — can respond to opportunities on a simple credit-based system, with option to choose credit packages or purchase a la carte credits, almost like an iTunes for jobs.
This not only provides a competitive edge for the applicant, but this process weeds out applicants who are not serious about the position.
“For the past 15 years, we have led the production industry in regards to online marketing, lead generation and talent acquisition,” says John Pokorny, Founder and President of ProductionHUB. “But it’s not just film & broadcast anymore. Because so many businesses recognize the value in video (and its consequence in search, social, and content), we have made it easier for them to access & hire the best professionals and production vendors,” Pokorny explains.
The range of hiring managers posting content creation jobs is vast, from the motion picture side: LAIKA studios and Van Wagner Productions; broadcast field: NBC, ABC, HSN, and Christian Broadcasting Network; to major brands like Best Buy and Thrillist.
“I found several good candidates on ProductionHUB, and ended up hiring one of them for the video position in our department. I found the website and service to be easy to use, and the pool of candidates to be exactly what I was looking for,” says Imry Halevi, Harvard University’s Director of Multimedia and Production in the Department of Athletics.
“Every time we have used ProHUB we have had total success. There are always a ton of candidates in any state we are shooting in,” Rich Bond, Pasadena-based Striped Blazer Productions. “ProductionHUB provides an amazing service which has helped my company grow tremendously.”
Besides the already-established Full-time / Part-time Jobs, ProductionHUB has spun out a few other services, including Freelance / Crew Jobs, Production Leads, Internships, Lo/Deferred and Casting Notices so that production mangers, recruiters and hiring managers can find the opportunity most relevant to their specific project.
