Job Opportunity: Production Assistant
From professional comedian Steve Hofstetter: Next Round Entertainment is looking to hire a production assistant for my tour (and several other projects).
Responsibilities will include some exciting things like producing videos and coordinating with venues and some tedium like data research and entry. You’ll be starting with 10-20 hours a week for now, and then much more full-time once the 2017 tour starts. You can be based anywhere in the US, but in the LA or NYC metro is preferred.
The most important skills you need are organizational skills, professionalism, and computer/social media literacy. You’ll be expected to be able to be equally adept at following directions and problem solving. You must have basic knowledge of photoshop, video editing software (iMovie or Final Cut preferred), excel, and basic social media. If you fit many of these but not all of these, please do not waste your time by applying. Design and editing knowledge are a plus, as is a working knowledge of the stand-up comedy and entertainment industries.
You will learn the ins and outs of producing a tour, running a YouTube channel, and creating and selling television shows. Starting pay is $12 an hour plus all travel expenses for live shows. There is room to advance into a salaried full-time position – this job is as big as you make it.
If you are interested, please send an email to email@example.com with the following:
- Professional resume
- A cover letter that details your experience in each of these fields, as well as your goals for this job. Feel free to include anything else about you. Also, include which Golden Girl is your favorite and why. There’s no wrong answer – but to do this job you need to be both creative and pay attention to detail.
There will be no need to follow up – you will only get a reply if we are interested in learning more. If we are, we will contact you with an hour or two of sample work for you to do to showcase your skills, and you will be paid for your time.
