Pre-Pro Video Editor

Mills James seeks a dynamic person to join our Pre-Professional Program as a Video Editor. This Pre-Pro position will help the Video Studio Team manage the production process from pre-production to post-production while exceeding our clients’ expectations and maintaining the highest professional standards. This position’s primary role is to support Video Studio productions in Cincinnati.

The Mills James Pre-Professional Program provides recent college graduates an opportunity to obtain on-the-job work experience in preparation for a career in the production industry. During the six-month session, often called the “audition” period, you will be expected to work 40 hours per week. Your skill sets need not cover the full range required for full-time associates. Displaying initiative and a willingness to learn will help you get the most out of your time in the program and add to your value in the marketplace.

At the sole discretion of Mills James, Pre-Pro associates who demonstrate outstanding skills and qualities may be offered the opportunity to continue in the program for a second six-month session.
