At some point in time, even the best artists have to go out and find a day job to supplement income from their creative practice.Then there are artist like me who like to have a steady income so they don’t have to worry about art sales.
Whatever the reason may be, entering the job market is no easy task, especially when you have an unorthodox background of creative experiences. To make things more difficult, jobs in the arts industry are usually pretty competitive and hard to come by, so we often have to look outside our field to gain employment.
This can make it really challenging to write an appealing resume, which is why artists often under-sell themselves and end up in jobs they’re unhappy with. The good news is, it doesn’t have to be that way if you know how to translate your creative skills into language that employers are looking for.
