“There are likely going to be unemployed people with two or three years of experience who are ‘ahead’ of you. I probably interviewe­d for more than 25 positions in the art world between 2009 and 2010. Hiring managers would tell me they were ‘going with someone with more experience.’ Do whatever you can to find that experience in the interim. For me, this meant finding a temporary position working for the nonprofit organizer of an art fair. Not something I saw myself doing, but it allowed me to keep interviewi­ng and pay my rent. When a job at a museum opened, I finally had the paid work experience they were looking for.”
