I received my certified applicants list yesterday at work. This means I can set up interviews and find myself a new payroll clerk. I hope to start interviews on Monday and finish on Tuesday. I've got 6 applicants and from the resumes at least four look experieced and two look exceptional. I think I will have to make some tough decisions, but I'd rather have too many good applicants than not enough. Only one of them knows the job will end in 4-5 months, but I will let the rest know when I schedule the interviews so if they aren't interested they can back out.
In answer to the Alaskan readers of my blog, the Recycled Art opening is Friday, November 1 at the International Gallery of Contemporary Arts in the 4th Avenue Marketplace. I already have buyers for both pieces....and they don't even know what price I've put on them. A co-worker wants the Rooster and my sister wants the Willow. I am struggling with how to price them, I looked at several of the other art submissions and they range from $100 up to $1,500. Pricing my art is always the hardest part for me. Do any of you have a formula you use to price your art? time? expenses? gut feeling? The gallery also takes 20% commission of anything sold.
