SoBe Institute Offers an Actual Job in the Arts

No, this is not a joke, and you're not reading The Onion. There is actually a cultural nonprofit in Miami that is looking for applicants for a full-time position. If I had professional-grade fireworks, I'd be launching them off the roof of the Miami New Times building right now. Instead, I have just this blog. (Pause for moment of self-reflection and regret.)

But remember, if you land this job, it doesn't absolve you from supporting the effort to get the $11 million for cultural programming back onto the county budget.

Without further ado, here are the details:

SoBe Institute of the Arts (SoBe Arts) is looking for an exceptional administrative assistant (to start immediately).
