Career Services

CAA’s philosophy is to create a lifetime context for thinking about a career, because a healthy working life is multifaceted and complex and involves more than one strategy to accomplish one’s goals. CAA presents programs and services for members at all stages in their careers.

The Online Career Center is the largest database of employment listings in the art and academic worlds. Job seekers may search listings and post their CV, and employers may submit classified advertisements and browse information about potential candidates. Other features allow schools and institutions to set up interviews at the CAA conference and elsewhere.

Conference Interviews

At the Annual Conference, CAA dedicates a large hall for job interviews, information dissemination, and more. Schools, museums, and institutions may purchase booths and tables in an Interview Hall.


CAA’s Opportunities collects and publishes calls for entries and papers, conference notices, fellowship and grant opportunities, internships, and more. New listings are posted daily; you may also submit your own.

Professional-Development Workshops

CAA offers Professional-Development Workshops to artists, art historians, and students at the Annual Conference and at locations across the United States throughout the year.

Mentoring at the Annual Conference

CAA members can receive advice on their job-search strategies, portfolio presentation, and more during the popular Annual Conference mentoring programs.

Standards and Guidelines

CAA publishes Standards and Guidelines for the field on such issues as conventions for résumés and CVs, tenure guidelines for artists and scholars, and proper etiquette for interviewers.

Publishing Grants

Grants for book manuscripts in art history and visual studies are awarded each year by CAA. The deadline for the fall cycle of the Millard Meiss Publication Fund and the Meiss/Mellon Author’s Book Award, and for the Wyeth Foundation for American Art Publication Grant, was September 15, 2015.
