I will be the first to admit that being an entrepreneur is extremely challenging. It takes a lot of hard work — a lot, a lot. Couple that with a field that can be difficult to navigate and it could take a really long time to build a sustainable, let alone profitable, business in the arts. All this to say that the old adage rings true: “Don’t quit your day job.”

But if you’ve already quit your day job and are having second thoughts — or if you simply need a new day job — here’s a list of some of the job boards that I frequently check. This is by no means comprehensive, but I’ll do my best to add to this list as I discover more.

LinkedIn has also proven to be a useful tool for searching for job opportunities and maintaining professional contacts. If you’re on there, feel free to connect with me. Good luck!
