ASAP – we will be reviewing applications as they are submitted.
The BC Professional Videographers Association was created in 1994 by a group of local video professionals as a non-profit association designed to educate and establish standards, by sharing knowledge and resources. The Association promotes and encourages both technical and artistic development, facilitates improvements in members’ productions, and gives videographers the opportunity to benefit from a community of professionals who wish to share their skills and experience in videography.
We are looking for a Market Research Analyst to create a video production industry report. The successful candidate will help design and determine the scope and objectives of the project with guidance and collaboration with the BCPVA exec, will conduct all primary and secondary research, will analyze the data gathered, and compile that data in a final report. This is a great opportunity for a student interested in marketing to gain real-world experience taking a market research project from start to finish. The student will learn leadership and communication skills as lead on the project, and gain invaluable experience having to work to client expectations and feedback.
