Candidate Resumes Are Officially A Thing At Arts Admin Jobs

Thanks to the very strong response from everyone about the idea of including job seeker resumes at Arts Admin Jobs, I decided to get that out sooner than later.

There were some fabulous ideas in the feedback survey that ultimately made it into the final cut, such as the option of including a video and listing languages you speak. You’ll also find an option for indicating where you’re at in a job hunt: “ready to interview,” “open to offers,” and “closed to offers.”

Submitting a resume is completely free of charge and the entire process has been streamlined compared to the way other job candidate databases work. The goal is to connect you with the right organization faster and more efficiently.

Submit Your Resume

Organizations Reach Out To You

No cover letters! You can simply provide a link to your resume and fill out a resume field. You can provide as much or as little information as you want then sit back and let companies send you interview requests.

Once we reach 25 resumes, I’ll launch employer access so be sure to help spread the word and encourage friends and colleagues to submit their information!

Access To Opportunity

If nothing else, the pandemic has demonstrated that remote working isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. As such, you can indicate if you’re willing to consider remote work positions or relocate for the right offer.

If you’re curious to know all of the options before starting into the process, here’s an overview of what you’ll find:

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.
