    Where do you post jobs looking for crew? Alternatively, where do you go to look for jobs? What about gigs vs full time employment?

    I used to share job posting that I found from various sources with a couple of Facebook groups. I did it out of the goodness of my heart and because I wanted everyone who wanted to work in this field find a job. However, several people in those groups treated me very poorly, so I stopped sharing.

    There’s a number of regular job web sites (LinkedIn, Indeed, SimplyHired, Glassdoor, etc.) that pick up job postings from various sources. There’s also web sites that you have to pay to get job info (Mandy, EntertainmentCareers, ArtSearch). There’s a Facebook group called Lori’s Theatre jobs that posts scenic art jobs on occasion. Local Facebook groups are also handy from finding jobs in your area. Organizations like SETC, TEA and USITT also have job boards. OffstageJobs, Playbill, BroadwayWorld also are resources.

    The Guild offers a job board for solely Scenic-related positions, located at <a href="jobs.scenicguild.org” class=”bbcode_url”>jobs.scenicguild.org. We have a volunteer that scours the larger jobs boards for postings and puts them on our site, and companies submit Scenic Art jobs directly to us (knowing they’ll be focused to a very specific crowd).

    As the Guild grows, we’re looking to implement features that would make soliciting local/regional help much easier– I hope in the future I’ll be able to reply to this thread with that good news!

    That’s an awesome resource to have! My company is expanding and we’re looking for a lead carpenter and an ATD. We had very few applicants the first time we posted. I suspect we weren’t posting in the right places.

    For job postings for other disciplines (costumes, carpentry, etc.), listing with national job sites like indeed.com or simplyhired.com can open up the candidate fields nationally. Like with scenic art, not everyone who works as a stage carpenter works in theatre. Stage carpenters can also work in live entertainment, museum installation, corporate events, etc. so it’s a good idea to have some different options.
