Canadian Arts Jobs – 28/09/12

Hello!

Fonts are interesting, not only in themselves, but also in how people view them. Some people simply don’t notice fonts and couldn’t care less. Others are passionate about them. Seriously, don’t even get people started on Comic Sans ;)

But that leads me to our questions for today…

What fonts do you love/hate? Which do you use most often? And which do you use for what?

I’d love to hear your answers in the comments below (or share over Twitter & Facebook) and be sure to take a look at the list of great job opportunities below. 

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

I’m determined to keep myself sorted in the coming months and replying promptly to emails is always one of my priorities when it comes to keeping on top of things. However it seems to be something that many struggle with. Do you have trouble keeping on top of endless emails or are you able to manage the ever-incoming stream?

What are your tips/advice for keeping your inbox under control?

I’d love to hear your answers in the comments below (or share over Twitter & Facebook) and be sure to take a look at the great list of job opportunities below.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I managed to spend time with family, go on a mini road-trip, and get LOTS of CAC work done.

Did you head to a cottage or take a trip? Spend some time with family? Perhaps attend an event? Maybe work on some of your art or projects?

My question today is…

How did you spend the long weekend? Did you do anything artistic or creative?

I’d love to hear what you were up to in the comments below (or share over Twitter & Facebook) and be sure to take a look at the long list of job opportunities below.

Remember to also check out today’s list of calls for submissions & auditions which will be up right after this post.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

Monday is a holiday, so our job list and calls for submissions list will go up on Tuesday next week instead. Thankfully I realized this ahead of time, but often my unusual work schedule means that I’m unaware of certain dates and happenings. And even if I do remember that it’s a holiday, I usually work through it anyway — such is the nature of working for yourself and running an independent arts biz/community. How about you?

Do you keep unusual work hours? Do you often work through holidays? Will you be working on Monday?

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

It’s a good idea to treat yourself every once in a while. Life is stressful, work is hard, and the pace that we we’re constantly moving at is enough to make anyone feel rough at times.

So my question today is…

What are your artistic indulgences? How do you treat yourself when it comes to creativity? 

Please let us know in the comments below (or share over Twitter & Facebook) and be sure to take a look at the awesome list of job opportunities below.

Have a wonderful day!

We still seem to be having issues with the website, but in between it running super slowly and completely shutting down, I’ve managing to gather the jobs together for a MASSIVE list today.

Hopefully the glitches with the site will be fixed soon (we’re on the case!), but until then have an amazing day and hopefully there are a few opportunities below that are perfect for you.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

When I started the job list today, there was a storm raging outside. Now, it seems the rain, thunder, lightning, and hail has passed and the birds are beginning to sing again. Another reminder of how fast things can change.

What’s the biggest change(s) you’ve been through when it comes to your art and/or career?

I’d love to hear your answers below after you check out the great list of job opportunities I have for you today.

Hello!

The majority of you liked the new way I set up the list yesterday (i.e. sorting it by provinces), so I think we’ll keep it this way for now. We’ve also had it suggested that we separate the Toronto jobs since they dominate the Ontario section, so I’ll try that out as well.

As I mentioned yesterday, we’re always on the lookout for more websites to collect job opportunities from. So we’d love to know…

Other than CAC, where do you look for jobs in the Canadian arts?

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

I’m getting business cards done up for the CAC team and will readily admit that designing them is not my strong suit. I’ll definitely be calling in some help.

Have you seen any really great business card designs?

What are some tips that you keep in mind when designing yours?

I’d love to hear your thoughts below in the comments section. And of course, be sure to also check out the great opportunities below.

Hello!

We’re going to be switching things up a bit this week with Ryan (our Business Manager) starting to help me with some of the job lists. As CAC continues to grow, my workload is increasing. Ryan, at the same time, is busy taking full-time courses. We’re hoping between the two of us we’ll be able to handle the lists each and every weekday.

This week, I’ll still be doing the lists until Thursday, then Ryan will handle Friday’s. After that, Ryan will take care of Monday and Friday’s job lists as well as Monday’s calls for submissions & auditions list. I’ll be handling Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

So be sure to give Ryan a “Hello!” on Friday’s list!

And, of course, I have a great list of jobs for you below to start off your week.

Have a wonderful day!
