Here we go—one week until a well-deserved long weekend and the unofficial ringing in of summer in NYC. We don’t know about you, but with the weather finally warming we just want to be out and about taking in everything this city has to offer young arts professionals like us! Event and program planners clearly feel the same and our GO section is feeling appropriately packed. Don’t miss out signing up early for YPA’s own June 18 event “Job Hunting in the Arts” at Sotheby’s Institute of Art and if you’re still searching for the right arts role to complement your skills, join NYFA’s upcoming online workshop. READ all about bouncing back from rejection and what can happen when you work for a progressive boss. Use the spring/summer hustle time to APPLY for exciting new job opportunities in the city. Long weekend, we see you!
