do we need to work to survive? yes. who is building our future? us. each one of us. what does it take to find a job? just a connection. luckily, we are all connected in the world by 6 degrees of separation. where are all the art job placements? between our friends. and if our friends are here, then we can find the jobs here as well. what really happens between sending a cv and getting an answer? years, months, weeks. recruiters might not even be reading our emails. when will the next social network drop? right here, right now. where are the answers to our job problems? not in the sky. the answers can usually be found by speaking to knowledgeable people. will supersonic travel ever appear? that we cannot possible know because we are not science engineers. how do we organise an art job revolution? we come together as friends in the arts.

carolina pelletier fontes

“FITA is the first platform dedicated to job hunting within the cultural sector in portugal with national and international opportunities. many people have no idea how hard it is to make art a full-time job in portugal. open calls to positions at galleries, museums or institutions are rare if nonexistent, making it harder for graduate students to start a career. this is a huge step for the artistic community.”

letícia castro vilela

“FITA was the best thing that could ever happen during the past year. i could not just find an amazing opportunity in the job catalog, but also had their help on issues like structuring my curriculum and cover letter. thanks to their review of the application i had to submit, i was accepted to be part of the internship team in one of the museums i appreciate the most in the world. none of this would have been possible without all the support i have had from FITA.”

francisco teles da gama

“FITA was very important for me to understand if my curriculum was well written to match the professional expectations i had. the care and attention they put into reviewing the curriculum and the motivation letter demonstrates the dedication and quality they place in everything they do. FITA has showed me the perfect view of the goals i want to achieve. i couldn’t have found a better platform to discover my future.”
