It’s times like the current job market that make me especially happy about the decision to set up ArtsAdminJobs.com a completely free resource for both employers and job seekers.
While most organizations are doing a great job at maintaining* as much of their workforce as possible, that doesn’t mean arts administrators aren’t feeling the pain. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that opportunities aren’t at usual levels, but that’s not to say opportunities are completely gone.
Since the downturn started, there have been a steady stream of listing coming in an ArtsAdminJobs of at least one per week. Interestingly enough, nearly the entire existing list is from the executive and senior development categories and all but one listing are full time positions.
And by all means, if you’re an employer and you’re looking for help, absolutely post a listing. It doesn’t matter if they are full time, part time or temporary positions, everything is welcome more than ever right now.
*If you haven’t submitted your employment status in this week’s survey, please take a moment to do that today.
