In this week’s Five Jobs, we bring you the “Experienced Edition”: jobs for those of you who have been around the block, and are now seeking permanent and full-time employment in the arts.

Executive/Administrative Assistant (New York, NY)
How to Apply

This position at a privately-owned art collection asks that the ideal candidate have a bachelor’s degree in an art- or design-related field and at least 1-2 years work experience, preferably in an art gallery or auction house. He or she would assist two curators at the privately-owned art collection.

Cinema4D Designer (New York, NY)
How to Apply

A “cutting edge boutique design agency” seeks someone with a “funky and original aesthetic”, as well as experience with Cinema4D, a type of 3-D animation design software. Reading between the lines, it looks like you’ll be making ads for liquor companies. Perks!

Press Officer at the Jewish Museum (New York, NY)
How to Apply

This job requires press release writing skills, a good track record pitching to journalists, and carving out relationships with bloggers. Hopefully you have all these skills already since The Jewish Museum asks for 5 years in public relations related to contemporary art at a cultural or educational institution. Oh, and a working knowledge of Jewish Culture.

Art Director at Neuberger Berman (New York, NY)
How to Apply

Here, a design-focused position at an independent asset management firm expects you to oversee design for all projects and be responsible for the finished product. They also expect you to have 10 years experience and an MFA from “a recognized art school.” Probably the most corporate of this week’s selection, but with it comes an enticing paycheck.

Peter Jay Sharp Chief Curator at the Frick Collection (New York, NY)
How to Apply

You need a PhD to apply for this position. Plus 10 years curatorial experience. But that makes sense, since you would have a senior curatorial position at one of New York’s most prestigious institutions.
