Adaptistration Jobs Gets An Upgrade

Since its launch in 2011, Adaptistration Jobs has been a popular go-to repository for orchestra admin job postings and over the weekend, we put the largest single upgrade in place (to date). I’m enormously proud to say that it continues to remain a completely free service for both job seekers and job posters without subjugating either to advertisement overload.

Adaptistration Jobs 2014The latest updates make an already user-friendly system even easier to use thanks to a streamlined submission form plus we’ve tweaked the responsive platform to do an even better job displaying listings in Smartphones and mini tablets. We’ve also upped the ante with concierge level service for job posters opting for the Featured Listing upgrade. Not only do you still receive preferential placement but we’ll actually take care of entering in all of your job description info for you!

One big improvement for all job posters is the ability to use a target email address or URL for the application process other than the one used to create the user account. You can see how this streamlines the submission process by checking out the new job submission process instructions.

So get up to speed on how everything works and help spread the word by making sure your orchestra has their openings listed. Then swing by the Job Listings page to see what’s currently available; to that end, we’ve cleared out all of the expired listings so the remaining listings are guaranteed fresh.

About Drew McManus

"I hear that every time you show up to work with an orchestra, people get fired." Those were the first words out of an executive's mouth after her board chair introduced us. That executive is now a dear colleague and friend but the day that consulting contract began with her orchestra, she was convinced I was a hatchet-man brought in by the board to clean house.

I understand where the trepidation comes from as a great deal of my consulting and technology provider work for arts organizations involves due diligence, separating fact from fiction, interpreting spin, as well as performance review and oversight. So yes, sometimes that work results in one or two individuals "aggressively embracing career change" but far more often than not, it reinforces and clarifies exactly what works and why.

In short, it doesn't matter if you know where all the bodies are buried if you can't keep your own clients out of the ground, and I'm fortunate enough to say that for more than 15 years, I've done exactly that for groups of all budget size from Qatar to Kathmandu.

For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, keep track of what people in this business get paid, help write a satirical cartoon about orchestra life, hack the arts, and love a good coffee drink.
