Employment Opportunities

We are seeking thousands of employees who are passionate about our mission for dynamic employment opportunities – both summer seasonal and career positions are available. 


Access to Full Season Pass

Employment includes a full-season pass for complimentary access to most programs and concerts.  


Application Process

In order to officially receive consideration for open positions (listed below), candidates must complete an online application.  Applicants for career positions are encouraged to upload a cover letter/resume as a single PDF.  Please retain your account login (email address) and password, as you will be required to log back into this portal to complete your electronic onboarding process at time of hire.


Hiring Process

Hiring processes are variable by position/department.  If you are qualified for an open position, you will be contacted by a hiring manager directly by phone and/or email to coordinate an interview.  You may not necessarily be contacted for your ‘first choice’ position.  If you are selected for employment, you will be directed to complete an electronic onboarding process using same login (email)/password that you used to complete your application at 


Summer Season and Work Schedule

While select departments operate year-round, Chautauqua Institution primarily hires to support summer seasonal operations from June 22 – August 25, 2019.  Your work schedule will be customizable and flexible, but most positions require some evening and weekend availability.


‘Minor Friendly’ Positions

There are select positions available for minors (ages 11-17) who possess a valid New York State Work Permit.  Please click the following link for more information on obtaining a work permit:  ‘Minor friendly’ positions will be marked as such on the website.
