Hmm...PR?...Arts Promoter?

Okay. So the Ashtabula Arts Center decides to advertise for a Public Relations/Marketing Coordinator this week. I threw my application in the mail this afternoon to make its way from the city core over to the Harbor Historical District. This should prove interesting. I did enough time as a stringer, staff writer, and enterprise reporter (politics, tax levies, elections, and election) to know how to hopefully write a decent press release.

Doing this in an arts center that promotes drama and visual art could prove interesting...


I've look at similar jobs--PR, development, and such--since library skills are an excellent match for those sorts of positions. What I ultimately lack? A decent wardrobe. If you do get an interview, look sharp and be at your schmooziest, since those are major components of such positions. Good luck!
