Tag: Professional photographer job
If you are looking for a job or collaborate with us, this article may be interesting.
MODE MEDIA is a content agency for social media, that offers comprehensive audiovisual services. For this we have a large team of professionals in the image and sound sector. The professional categories we hire the most are: Camera operators, camera assistant, photographer, sound technicians, video editors, producers, motion graphers, graphic designers and community managers.
What we advise you to do based on our experience recruiting staff:
1- Make it easier for the person in charge of carrying out the selection process and win their sympathy from minute one.
Sometimes the person responsible for the human resources department in an SME is not a dedicated professional, since the volume of the company doesn’t allow a professional dedicated exclusively to the selection of the company staff. That means you are communicating with a person who has a lot of jobs and little time to execute it. Read your email, read your resume and take a look at the samples of your work and do the same with ten? twenty? thirty? forty people? to get to work in another workflow that same day.
Every company is a world but from experience, I can tell you that sometimes I have spent 30 minutes to analyze 20 emails from applicants. It may seem a bit extreme but after talking with colleagues in the sector I can confirm that this is real. These means that your email is dedicated about a minute and a half to assess the work of a person and make a first filter. Get to the point and help as much as you can to the person who reads your CV so can find what is looking for.
2. Find out what that company needs and offer it.
The recruiter is not interested in your needs: that if you like Barcelona, that if you want a photographer’s job or if you would like to do internships in this company. Your email must contain some type of information that encourages the company to look at your profile, for example: I have worked in a company dedicated to covering car events (when you know that you are presenting to a company that does events in this same sector).
3. Don’t do it with words, do it with facts.
Attach a link to your portfolio in the email. Try not to attach files that have to be downloaded (for security files are not downloaded from unknown people), in addition to saturating the mail servers. Remember to save the recruiter time, upload it online and share the link.
4. Send direct links to samples of works that adapt to the work flow of that company. Don’t attach anything, or photos or videos, even in low resolution. Attach only links to videos and photos that are related to what that company does.
5. Adapt to its rules.
I know it can be cumbersome to cover an application, but in many cases there is a reason (some automatic selection process, awkwardness, lack of time) the case is that if you do not send the information in the form required you run the risk that those studies or works that have cost you so much to get are not taken into account in the selection process, because your system or the person who manages the information has no way of retaining the information.
What we don’t advise to do:
1. Tell them your life.
Avoid entering the field of the personal: we all have our little heart but the person who reads your email does not have time for it, and your personal life is not relevant to the selection process, unless they find a very strong motivation in it. He may have a minute and a half to read you. Do not use it to tell him things about your personal life: EJ. I just moved to the city, I come from a very pretty town in the Argentine Pampas, I love Barcelona, now I have come to Barcelona and I am looking for work here, etc.
2. Don’t tell him movies.
We all have a reason why we have decided to dedicate ourselves to what we do but the person who reads you does not have time to listen to your story and above all, it is not relevant. A classic of this type of email is: – since I was little I always knew that cinema was my thing, I always had a lot of imagination, I watched movies every day … If what you want is to tell him that you are a director and that you live by and to direct movies , your motivation will be reflected by your actions, your work, when you see that you have directed 30 short films with your mobile phone and a pc then you will know about your dedication.
3. Do not send an email greeting without attaching all the information that represents you as an official candidate.
4. Don’t ask if the employer want to see samples of your work.
You had an opportunity to show your work. Send them, because they may not bother to answer you for two reasons: 1. They already have enough work samples from other candidates. 2. Writing to you will waste their time, which they actually may not have.
5. Specify your professional category.
In the same title of the email specify what your professional category is, so that person who evaluates you has knowledge of the information that should be valued. I do not advise you to send an email saying “for what you think I am useful to you”, because once again, this person does not have time to look for a profession or decide what your specialisation is. I won’t get tired of saying it, make it easy, save time. If you are a photographer but you have also operated the camera – send samples of projects, the human resources person will know about your talent and could always make you an offer, even if in your email you put photographer looking for work.
6. Do not write what is obvious.
- The title: It is useful to have a title because it implies that you have trained but in case it does not have any value as merit to be taken into account at the time and select (at least in the audiovisual sector). Your experience and work samples will always worth more.
- Cliché messages such as: “I send you my CV in order to be able to apply for any of your vacancies and use my skills with you”, “I just wanted to send you my CV in case you need someone to edit video or camera operator, greetings and thanks!”.
7. Don’t send a CV with address in another country or city.
The producers prefer to work with local staff, which adapts to their work rhythms, schedules and the work environment of the city where they operate as a company.
8. Don’t forget to attach your works.
Photographer without photos, videographer without videos, etc. Never resort to messages such: “I have a lot of drive and I am an entrepreneur but I have nothing to prove but my statement.”
9. Don’t forget to specify references in the email.
Take advantage of those knowledge and experiences that present you as a good candidate for a particular position. EJ: I studied photography at the school of image and sound in Barcelona, then worked two years as an assistant to photographer X, doing this.
We hope you put these tips into practice.
If you want to send us a job application, I recommend you to see the typology of projects that we carry out, and send samples of similar work, so that the person who is in charge of the selection, can see your abilities are adapted to our workflows.
