The New York Pops, with support provided by the New York City Regional Economic Development Council, is proud to announce vacancies for two full-time Arts Administration Fellow positions. Fellows will join the vibrant staff of The New York Pops and will be immersed in training and mentoring throughout the year as they begin to explore careers in arts administration.
Fellowships are meant for professionals new to the field of arts administration who are seeking experience, on-the-job training, and mentorship.
Fellows at The New York Pops will take part in all activities carried out by The New York Pops, including, but not limited to, experience in the Development, Communications and Marketing, Education, and Programming departments. Fellows will also be exposed to all aspects of non-profit administration, including bookkeeping, database management, e-marketing trainings, and basic office skills.
Each Fellow will be paired with a mentor, who will guide the experience of the Fellow from day one, tailoring the experience according to interests and strengths. Fellows will receive hands-on training and will take ownership of their tasks while receiving necessary guidance and support. Fellows will also receive career advice and will participate in arts-field seminars as possible. Mentors will also help Fellows to assemble résumés and job applications and will guide Fellows through application processes as they move forward in their careers.
Fellows should come away with a thorough understanding of non-profit arts administration in New York State, including a grasp of the funding landscape and the competing priorities inherent in the field. Fellows should leave The New York Pops with a clear trajectory and goals for their career.
The New York Pops staff are deeply committed to mentorship and training, and every full-time staff member will become a mentor at some point throughout the year.
