TCES- It's the Greatest!

Patricia Angotti
Director, THEatre SERVICE

Louisville is all abuzz over the opening of the new $82-million Muhammad Ali Center - an educational and global gathering place.

Celebrities and dignitaries from across the country and around the world attended the gala event including former President Bill Clinton. Few celebrities will be on hand in March when THEatre Conference Employment SERVICE opens in Louisville, but there will be a large pool of eager and highly qualified job seekers and some of the best employers in the nation anxious to hire them.

THEatre Conference Employment SERVICE (TCES) can be a best friend and ally in helping to efficiently network and navigate through the trauma of finding that perfect job or, for employers, that perfect hire. TCES is designed to carefully and efficiently match employer and applicant while easing the stress and tension associated with job hunting and employment service activities.

Key to that network is a fully computerized system listing available job opportunities, posting applicant resumes, and scheduling interviews between job seekers and prospective employers. Great care is taken to schedule interviews conveniently around other conference sessions and workshops that participants may wish to attend. The atmosphere is low key with a friendly TCES staff of theatre professionals available to offer advice and provide personal assistance.

Two different levels of participation are available with TCES; one for those offering or seeking professional employment and another for non-professional summer theatre jobs, internships, or graduate assistantships. Because the service works to match appropriate jobs with qualified people, both employers and those seeking employment are urged to sign up early. (Fees are lower for early registration, too.)

Complete information and TCES registration forms are available on-line at or by calling 800-93USITT. To contact TCES staff directly by e-mail write to or call 317-826-7894.

USITT contracts with THEatre SERVICE to provide TCES so that potential employees and employers have a safe and professionally organized environment in which to work should they wish to interview at the conference. Fees are well within reach of the majority of the membership because USITT underwrites TCES as a membership benefit and valuable service for conference attendees

Job postings are not allowed on notice boards and will be removed. Those who have a job listing should take advantage of what TCES has to offer for its low, low fees. For the safety of the applicants and to protect the membership, interviews are not permitted in hotel rooms. This policy is for everyone's safety and security.

When is an employment service like a boxing great? Patricia Angotti likes to compare the great service she offers with the champion, whose new Muhammad Ali Center is now open in Louisville, Kentucky.
