You Mean I Can Get Paid To Be On Facebook, Twitter, And Instagram?

There have been several interesting listings posted at Adaptistration Jobs recently and one that stands out is a full-time position (with benefits!) for a Social Media Coordinator at Town Hall Seattle. It’s good to see arts organizations not only but embrace these positions as an integral part of successful marketing performance.

In full disclosure mode, Town Hall Seattle is a client of mine but I can say with no reservations everyone I work with there is a delight. They provide their community with a unique mix of civic, arts, and educational programs. Cultivating creativity and empathy are part of their mission plan. How cool is that?

The application deadline for that job is 2/24/2017 so don’t procrastinate.

There’s also an Executive Director opening at Maryland Symphony. Although it’s been quite some time since I called the Maryland area home, I have fond memories and more connections than I can remember among arts administrators. This is an excellent gig for someone looking to move into regional executive administration or someone with experience looking for new challenge.

You’ll also find plenty of other great full time, part time, temporary, and internships. Peruse openings by employer or if you’re more interested in where over who, take a look at the mapped listings.

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.
