Frustrated With Your Job Search?

Looking for a career in art can be a lengthy and frustrating process. You may have to apply to 100 jobs before you have an offer. You also may have to go through 20 interviews before you land the right job. Hopefully this page will ease the pain.

Your first step in looking for employment is developing an eye catching resume and cover letter. Art teachers and artists have one up in the design area, but usually need help with the format and verbiage. Make sure you personalize the templates that are listed on this page. It also helps if you research the company and integrate that some way in your cover letter. Later on this page you will find templates and other resources for creating a resume and cover letter.


Apply for as many openings as you can and don't forget to follow up with a phone call- especially if you don't live in the state or country where the position appears. Many will ignore resumes from out-of-state or foreign people unless they know they are serious and will travel for an interview.


Below you will be able to view many websites that offer job search opportunities for everything from art education to gaming design and graphic arts.
