Expanding Your Job Search Resources

We will continue to spread the news about job opportunities listed on the VRA website but if you’re serious about your job search it’s essential to expand your search beyond one website or organization. We all know the job market is slow but you can ensure you’re not missing an opportunity by checking a variety of sites each day. Below are some links to get started with. Remember, this is not an exhaustive list! Visual resource work is wonderfully interdisciplinary and you cannot assume one website has every relevant posting. Another tip: if your search is centered on a specific geographical region or a type of institution visit the career page of individual institutions in addition to professional association websites.
