Mills James’ Pre-Professional (Pre-Pro) Program is an intensive training program for college graduates and individuals who have trained at specialized schools for careers in the creative media production industry. The Pre-Pro Program attracts applicants with varied talents and exceptional backgrounds, experiences and education. A good Pre-Pro experience can provide participants with valuable industry experience and contacts.
Please note that not all positions are available at all times. For current openings and to apply, please visit the Columbus and Cincinnati Openings page.
Due to the high demand for these positions, Mills James employs a rigorous selection process, and holds Pre-Pro participants to the same high standards as the company’s employees. “Pre-Pros” work 40+ hours per week during their six-month “auditions” (see Terms and Conditions below). While Pre-Pros’ skill sets need not cover the full range that would be required for full-time employees, candidates must display a strong willingness to learn and show initiative to get the most out of their experience.
At the sole discretion of Mills James, Pre-Pros demonstrating outstanding skills and qualities may be offered the opportunity to continue in the Program for an additional six months. Pre-Pros’ length of service will not, however, extend beyond one year.
The provisions of the Pre-Professional Program do not constitute an employment contract, or other form of legal contract. Mills James may, at any time, unilaterally change the program.
The Pre-Professional Program does not guarantee employment for the Pre-Pro, or in any way restrict the rights of Mills James to terminate employment at any time, with or without cause.
The relationship established between Mills James and the Associates in this Program is “at will.” Accordingly, either party can terminate the relationship at any time, with or without cause.
Pre-Pros are, however, encouraged to remain in the Program for at least six months to enhance their development and their potential to seize future opportunities in the creative media production industry.
Mills James provides equal employment opportunity to all qualified individuals without regard to their race, color, religion, national origin, age, sex, disability, military status, citizenship or any other legally protected status in accordance with applicable local, state and federal law. EOE.
