Today's post comes from Jackie Rucker, Director, Human Resources.
When people find out I work for the Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts, that question (or one similar) often follows. And I love explaining all of the positions we have – everything from fundraising positions to help desk technicians and a lot of things in between.
Working at Wolf Trap is wonderful and unique for many reasons. First, you get to work in the performing arts! Regardless of whether or not you work directly behind the scenes there is always something interesting and creative happening around you. Wolf Trap is a place where you can see the fruits of your labor, and enjoy them. Programs like music lessons, master classes, opera productions, and so much more, are organized and performed on campus.
Art is all around at Wolf Trap. I'll give you an example. One thing Foundation employees look forward to during the summer months is a program called "A Little Lunch Music." It happens almost every week during our summer season, members from the Wolf Trap Opera Company serenade the Foundation staff in an informal office setting. It is a very special treat to step away from your desk and listen to an hour's worth of beautiful voices. Take a look...
If you've ever thought about working at Wolf Trap, now is your chance! Right now, we have several positions available including (but not limited to):
IT Support Tech (Full Time)

Now for the hard part - "How do I get an interview????"
Well... be thoughtful in your cover letter - why do you want to work at Wolf Trap? What is your connection to our mission? And make sure that you're applying for a position you are qualified for.
