For the first time since the pandemic, I’ll be traveling for work so when combined with an already deadline filled week, I decided to play it safe and take the week off. Having said that, if anything big transpires, I’m sure to write something.
In the meantime, I’ll step up on posting items of interest at my Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn feeds. And yes, I do cherry pick which content goes whereas I’ve noticed each platform is unique when it comes to what they find most engaging.
I’ll also continue to review and publish submissions to the Candidate Database at Arts Admin Jobs. While actual job postings are almost entirely automated, candidate profiles are absolutely reviewed to make sure they are legitimate and complete. To that end, I am nothing but pleased with the rate the database is growing and quality of submissions.
As of now, there are 60 published profiles spanning a range from those looking for their first opening after leaving school to seasoned executives with decades of experience. At this rate, it should absolutely be the first place employers should go when looking to fill a position.
Being a data geek, I’ve been watching how employers interact with the profile filters and based on that feedback, one of the most popular features is the skills filter. Looking for someone with OPAS experience? How about MailChimp, Google Ads, Canva, or Adobe Creative Cloud? You can search by those and dozens of additional skills filters. If your organization doesn’t already have an annual subscription, you’re missing out.
