This article came from Artswire a little while ago:
______ ARTS JOB SEEKERS HAVE ACCESS TO WIDE RANGE OF RESOURCES
As the Internet has expanded, access to information about jobs continues to increase. In addition to sources which list a wide range of jobs in the cultural sector, such as Arts Wire Current's "Jobs" -- http://www.artswire.org/current/jobs.html -- there are location-based lists of jobs in the cultural sector such as The Arts & Business Council's ARTSWORKNY -- -- for the New York Metro area. Other lists, such as e-Architecture's Job Listings, are discipline specific.
Also available are lists of jobs in particular sectors of the arts community, such as the list of jobs in artists communities offered by the Alliance of Artists' Communities -- http://www.teleport.com/~aac/ -- where recent listings have included Administrative Director of The Civitella Ranieri Foundation, which provides residency fellowships to visual artists, writers, musicians and filmmakers at the Civitella Ranieri castle in central Italy.
"Jobs is one of our two content pillars, along with news," David Eedle, one of the two owners and company directors of the Australian-based DRAMATIC ONLINE -- http://www.dramaticonline.com/ -- told Arts Wire. "We know from feedback and anecdote that it is very highly valued. We know of several instances where people working overseas have secured jobs via our listings and moved to Australia."
"WESTAF'S ARTJOB continues to grow. We've nearly doubled the number of
job listings on the site in the last year," says Western States Arts Federation
(WESTAF) Marketing Director Kimberly MacArthur Graham. "And right now,
we're looking at ways to partner with state and regional arts agencies to further
increase ArtJob's effectiveness."
ArtJob -- http://www.artjob.com -- long a source of employment information for the art community, is no longer published in a print version. "ArtJob Online is solo, though we do publish an e-mail newsletter, DIRECTIONS," Graham notes.
Although the Cultural Alliance of Greater Washington's JOBank -- http://www.cultural-alliance.org/programs/jobank.html -- continues their on site drop in service, they have added an electronic component so that members with e-mail addresses can now receive updates and information regarding new job listings.
David Eedle, who has a 16 year background in arts and cultural management, starting life as a stage hand and lighting designer, before a stint managing a 500 seat performing arts center, also commented on the high level of mobility in the industry, not just in Australia, but across the world. "We were at a party last night and met three guys -- two from Holland and one from Germany -- all of whom met and married Australian women in Europe, and who have moved to Australia looking for work. All are in the cultural industry," he said.
Some current arts jobs web sites and sources of information about jobs in the arts are listed below.NATIONAL JOB SOURCES
____ARTS WIRE CURRENT JOBS
Now in its third year, Arts Wire Current's JOBS page -- http://www.artswire.org/current/jobs.html -- is updated every Monday and features a comprehensive and international list of job opportunities.

ARTJOB ONLINE -- http://www.artjob.com -- features a national database of job listings in all arts disciplines in the nonprofit, commercial, academic, and public sectors. The service is a source for professional opportunities and key information in all areas of the arts, including: Presenting, Producing, Performing Arts, Visual Arts, Academic, Internships & Fellowships, Conferences, and Commissions.
"About six months ago, I decided to get back into the arts world, (I was at the time working as a county commissioner): says Idaho Commission on the Arts' Executive Director Dan Harpole, who found his job through ArtJob. "I asked around to find a good source for information on arts employment, and someone recommended ArtJob Online. It was the only source I ended up using, because there was so much there. Here I was in a rural area of Washington state, and for $25 [three month subscription fee] I knew about great jobs all over the country! It was a terrific investment in my future. I applied to five jobs, got interviews with three, and was employed within 3 1/2 months. The job I ended up taking with the Idaho Commission is the best job I've ever had. I really love the job."
ArtJob has also added a number of features to the site. It now includes articles, as well as tips on various aspects of job searching.
Among the articles currently on ArtJob are "A New Way to Work and Age in the 21st Century" by Hellen Harkness and "Self-Marketing for Artists" by Contemporary Jazz recording artist, Bradley Sowash, based on his workshop for the Ohio Arts Council.
