Ready your resumes and recut those reels, Portland, because Job Mixer III is on the calendar! Always well timed, this mixer coincides with a huge crew finishing up at HouseSpecial on a new season of The Shivering Truth, as well as renewed interest from some agencies in the area who are building small but potent teams.
New to this year’s mixer is creative staffing agency 52ltd, who promises to help connect awesome dots as they uncover opportunities within our landscape. OMPA will also join forces for this event, and is placing a priority on the post production section of an OMPA Directory redesigned for 2020.
This is all happening Thursday, February 27th from 5:30-7:30pm at PNCA. An extra special thanks to PNCA for hosting, as we all know this event presents logistical challenges that comes from bringing together every freelance artist or student with seemingly every company operating in our space, all under one roof. It’s an important mix that we hope you’ll be a part of.
Click here to sign up and register for the event (via OMPA’s system). Also fill out the form that follows registration to submit your materials to the companies attending in advance.
