EDIT 2: After some on-point feedback, we've adjusted the price points for posting (see chart below).
A heads-up: I'm currently sending this message out to all those who have posted under the "Jobs" category thus far, in order to update everyone on the incoming changes:
Hello! Thanks so much for listing a job on the real-time VFX forum. I'd like to inform you that we're sunsetting the "Jobs" category, and launching a fully featured job board next week. We'll go ahead and leave your job listing up until November 15, approximately a week after the new board goes live. From then on, we will direct all job posters to the new board.
The site has seen rapid growth since it launched in early September. Already we've got 550+ professional VFX artists and students registered with user accounts. As I'm sure you've noticed, people are regularly engaged, sharing knowledge and insights about VFX. Our plan is to only help the site grow more and more in the future, attracting more VFX talent to join in the community.
By posting job listings on the new job board, you will help fund this community, so we can build the next generation of up-and-coming future VFX artists, and level-up ourselves in this niche craft. We're offering free 30-day postings with the code "realtime" through December 7. After that, our pricing model will be as follows:
Product - Price - Per Month, Per Post
15-day Post - $25 - $50
30-day Post - $50 - $50
90-day Post - $100 - $33
5 jobs 90-day - $400 - $27
We'll send out an announcement on how to post jobs next week once the job board goes live.
Also, if you're interested in sponsoring a VFX competition on the forum, let me know and we'll get you into the rotation. Community contests are a great way to get the word out about your studio. Prizes like a portfolio review, or a tour of your studio could give you access to some of the best VFX talent in the community. At the very least, it's a fantastic way to get visibility on your VFX job openings.
If you have any questions or feedback about improving the site and/or job board to meet your needs, please don't hesitate to ask! We'd love to hear how we can make this the best experience possible. At any rate, thanks for being involved with the real-time VFX community, and I wish you all the best in staffing for VFX awesomeness.
