Adaptistration Jobs Turns Five

Adaptistration Guy Jobs AnniversaryIt’s hard to believe that five years have passed since Adaptation Jobs went live, but that’s exactly where we are. Since then, the site has continuously grown in popularity to become a leading destination for arts organizations to post openings and where job seekers go to find them. The service has been 100 percent free of charge for both employers and candidates since its launch and that’s not going to change but thanks to analytics, I’m pleased to offer a new option that will help employers tap into a rapidly increasing source for traffic.

In addition to the existing Featured Listing upgrade, employers may opt for a Newsletter Highlight or take both for a package discount.

Over the past year, the fastest growing segment of incoming traffic referrals is via the weekly email summary newsletters from,, and

Each week, these three sources produce more than 20 percent of weekly traffic so it made sense to offer an option for employers to tap into such a clearly defined source of potential candidates. By default, all listings are included in the weekly newsletters for each outlet but the upgrade will now apply similar callout styles from the traditional “Featured Listing” upgrade.

Employers can select either upgrade at the onset of submitting a job listing.

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.
