The arts are an important part of a Princeton education, and the arts field encompasses a wide variety of career opportunities for Princetonians.
You can find Princeton alumni performing and creating, managing and curating, raising money, managing venues, educating and promoting - all in support of the arts.
Volunteering, interning and working part-time at arts organizations are all great ways to learn more about this field. Make time to perform, create and participate in the arts. Attend arts-related events and broaden your network to become an active member of your local arts community.
There is not a typical recruiting timeline for careers in these fields. Most organizations only hire as vacancies occur and are ready to be filled. Networking with alumni and others in the field is essential to learn about opportunities as they arise and to get recommendations.
