The Woodruff Arts Center offers a comprehensive and competitive benefits package including Medical Point of Service (POS) and Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) plan options, health savings and flexible spending accounts, dental and vision coverage, employer paid life insurance, as well as long and short term disability plans.

The Woodruff provides eligible employees with the option to participate in an 100% employer matched 403(b) retirement. The Woodruff Arts Center encourages employee health and well-being by offering an EAP (Employee Assistance Program), various wellness initiatives and paid leave time.

Employees also receive discounted parking rates, Octane Coffee “perks” and free or discounted tickets to most performances and exhibitions at The Woodruff Arts Center.

Once you have submitted a cover letter and resumé, The Woodruff Arts Center’s Human Resources Department will review your submission.

Because each candidate is thoroughly reviewed, the submission process alone can be exceptionally extensive. It usually takes 2 – 3 weeks to review all cover letters and resumés submitted for any given position. Unfortunately, due to the large number of resumes received, applicants will only be contacted at a later time if additional information is needed.

Please be patient and periodically view the online job postings in order to see if the positions to which you applied for is still available.

From start to finish, here are four tips for a successful interview at The Woodruff Arts Center.

Be Prepared

It is always important to be knowledgeable about the company for which you are applying. In preparation for your interview, research The Woodruff Arts Center (the Our Story and Leadership pages are great places to start.) Read the job description and qualifications carefully and bring any questions you might have about the role and its duties.

Be Impressive

Once you are in the interview, you only have a few minutes to make an impact. Have a firm handshake, make eye contact, be attentive and ask questions that are relevant to your position. Let the interviewer(s) know you want to be here!

Be Confident

Highlight the skills and experiences outlined on your resumé and be prepared to answer questions about your potential position. Make it clear to the interviewer how you would specifically add value to The Woodruff Arts Center team.

Be Proactive

Typically, it is custom to thank the interviewer(s) for their time and ask for business cards. After the interview, send a letter or email as soon as possible. This lets the interviewer(s) know that you are interested in the position and that you appreciate the information you received during your interview. Keep in mind that the submission process for positions at The Woodruff takes longer due to the high volume of applications; check the Careers page periodically to see if the position for which you applied is still available.
