I've been doing videos for my company for the past few months now. Everything from filming and creating video ideas, to finishing the videos with PowerDirector. Basically from start to finish. I'm now leaving, and they were wondering if I could put together a job listing so they can find a replacement for me. What would the job title be?

I did not go to school for filmography or anything related.. so just want to make sure I'm not using any poor language or terms that would make the company look bad to any potential hiree!

Thanks! How about.. Multi-media Manager/Director?

Is it usually assumed that one who can shoot videos also has good knowledge of audio recording? We've got a few different specialty microphones/recording devices.

Don't get too hung up on the job title- it's the description and qualifications that is the more important stuff.

List the things you did and is expected to be done by the company. The more skills a candidate brings to the table the better for the company.

Never assume anything about about the skill set of a potential candidate. I assume you will be asked to go over the potential candidates or are you out of that loop?

If you are in- then always make sure they at least send in a 5 min clip or a link to websites that showcase their past work. Whittle them down and ask the ones you find interesting to list their software / hardware setup. You want to look for variety and subtlety in their work and if they are familiar with different pieces of software / technology.

The last thing a company needs is a one track horse in the editing booth. Then finally the physical in person job interview. They have to ace all parts of these steps. Of course tell them they have a certain trial period to see if they a good fit for the company. If not then make sure to keep the contact info for the next three potential candidates if the first one does not work out. Sometimes the second or third candidate can actually the best fit. (You obviously have no control over their potential pay / cost structure, that's the company's role.)

I am not sure what type of field you were / are in, but the company has specific needs that need filled. An all around candidate with a wide range of experience would be preferably to someone who has a small set of skills.

Anyway- I probably said way too much info above than what you were looking for. Just going by my past work background- which was not video editing- but the recruitment steps are always similar for any company.

Actually some very good advice and help.. thanks.

I'll be somewhat in the loop. I'll basically give them whatever help I can and I'm sure they'll ask me what I think of different candidates.
