Question: Why is it important to join a professional organization in college or after?

Answer:

  • It's important to have a few memberships in art organizations to show that you are active in the arts community. Most organizations require a small fee or yearly dues to help support their running costs but are invaluable when it comes to networking and applying for jobs. 
  • Many organizations throw an annual meeting, recruiting event, or have smaller events throughout the year to help build connections, influence and their network reach. These can be great to attend for lectures, courses, up to date industry news, presentations, conferences, etc. You should also list these on your resume and try to present or be part of a formal function of the organization in some way.
  • When particiapting in art organization related events always be sure to have your business cards with you to exchange and spend time getting to know people during and after events. This can lead to career growth, new opportunities and growing your network of friends and colleagues in the arts.
