Week 1 Exploration: Job Listings

Job Position 1:

Producer/Editor – Datameer – New York.

The reason I picked this job position was because of the area of New York and also its qualifications. The job doesn’t necessarily relate to my career aspirations, however, it relates to my interest in creating strong and effective stories around people from the scientific, medical and sports industry. This job is more inclined towards the corporate side of the media industry and I think that it would be a great platform to get my foot in the door. I think that a well structured corporate job with steady pay and valuable benefits would be a great way of not only doing what I love, but also earning a decent income alongside gaining experience. I think that the corporate industry is more in need of value incorporated visual media today that ever before. They understand the value of videos and intend to use it to their benefit. The qualifications for the job position are a wide array of multimedia skills alongside your typical communications skills. I think that I fit that type considering my interest in a wide variety of skills opposed to just one area of focus.

Job 2:

Production Director – Lightmaker – Orlando, FL

The main reason I chose this job is because it is an opportunity in the area of Orlando and although i’ve been looking at opportunities in the area of New York, I still am keeping my options open for opportunities here in Orlando. This particular job does not just lean on the digital agency aspect that its description reads on its website. It is more of a creative digital strategy company. Meaning, I will have a lot of opportunity to use my multiple skills to contribute to the company. After looking at their website, I was impressed because of their good design and their connections in the surrounding area as well as internationally.

Job 3:

Digital Producer – Synergy Interactive Solutions – New York

https://www.linkedin.com/jobs2/view/13043200?trk=vsrp_jobs_res_name&trkInfo=VSRPsearchId%3A3004034271427847003469%2CVSRPtargetId%3A13043200%2CVSRPcmpt%3Aprimary

The reason I chose this particular job is because I thought I needed to develop experience in the digital production side of the industry and them move towards my main goal that is video production. This job doesn’t necessarily relate to my career aspirations but then again, i’m trying to build my way into the industry opposed to directly landing a producers job. I think that this job would be a great learning opportunity for me because it leans towards my overall expertise, which is media strategy. I think that working there would also teach the pros and cons of marketing and strategizing content over the various digital platforms. This in turn would help me in future in marketing and distributing any short indie films that I produce or any visual content for that matter of fact. I think that I would be a suitable candidate for this posting considering I’m a multi-skill set individual in terms of media strategy, visual design and team building.
