I’m actually a Tischie who never expected to land an HR career position in government. However, the theater production and writing skills I acquired at Tisch definitely prepped me to do my recruitment, placement, applicant analysis, and orientation functions well. Collaboration is collaboration, in a creative setting or not; also, mounting a theater production or shooting and editing a film had a lot of project management skills involved. Do not be afraid to hire art school kids! We are uniquely set up to interact well with others, be creative problem solvers, and often tolerate the quirkiest of the staff members.
