As I find myself in the hiring seat once more, and my inbox flooded with applications, I can’t help but think of a few more “Do’s and Don’ts” when it comes to applying for artist positions. I’m only just now realizing that I’m writing this on the anniversary of my first post on this topic from May 2017.
