1. Guzman, Jennifer Grace. Examining the "Portfolio Careers" of Classical Musician Entrepreneurs through the Lens of Seven Clarinetists.

Degree: 2019, University of North Texas

Many classically-trained clarinetists do not know how to use their performance skills and life experiences to create financially sustainable and artistically fulfilling musical opportunities. Music careers have traditionally included teaching positions in academia and performance positions in professional ensembles. Because of the limited number of jobs in these two areas, clarinetists, and classical musicians in general, often turn to work that provides financial security but may lack artistic fulfillment. The proposed solution to this situation is for musicians to create "portfolio careers," which is defined in this document as a combination of multiple part-time jobs to create full-time work. The purpose of this document was to examine best practices in creating and sustaining a portfolio career through the specific lens of seven clarinetists who have shown themselves to be successful performers and entrepreneurs. Results showed that the best practices include: 1) turn ideas into actions, even if the idea is still in the prototype stage, 2) build and utilize a network of successful and supportive people, 3) say "yes" to opportunities, and 4) find creative work outside the field of music that inspires music-related work. Advisors/Committee Members: Luevano, Kimberly Cole, Claure, Fabiana, Henry, Warren.

2. Olos, Luiza. Are Portfolio Careers the Future Career Trajectories? Theoretical and Empirical Analyses Applied to Psychology as Profession.

Degree: 2016, Freie Universität Berlin

A survey of psychologists' career trajectories over 15 years (N=585) has shown that the most prevalent career pattern (N=121) involves two or more simultaneous occupational activities or employment relationships. These portfolio careers can be considered characteristic of psychology. They are fostered by the nature of the profession, but are, to a certain extent, also enforced by labour market conditions. Interviews with a small subsample of respondents have shown that portfolio careers tend to be viewed positively, because they further the goals of variety, autonomy, flexibility, and work- life balance. Few of the respondents have been forced into part-time work for financial reasons or feel pressured by having to combine more than one job. Psychologists with portfolio careers contribute to the cohesion of the profession by countering overspecialisation and lack of interaction among the subdisciplines. Advisors/Committee Members: [email protected] (contact), w (gender), Prof. Dr. Ernst-H. Hoff (firstReferee), PD Dr. Hans-Uwe Hohner (furtherReferee).

3. Munnelly, Karen Patricia. Understanding Career & Degree Expectations of Undergraduate Music Majors.

Degree: PhD, Arts Administration, Education and Policy, 2017, The Ohio State University

Each year thousands of students graduate with music degrees. Many of these students will go on to engage in project-based work and maintain a portfolio career as opposed to having one full-time job within the field of music. Maintaining a portfolio career requires many skills outside of playing an instrument such as financial management, marketing, networking and fundraising. The goal of the study was to gain a better understanding into the career goals and degree expectations of undergraduate music majors, so that the data can be used to inform career development and career preparation programming within music schools. For this mixed-method study, online surveys were distributed to undergraduate music majors at seven higher education institutions. The findings revealed that there is a distinction between the jobs undergraduate music majors associate with success, the jobs they would ideally like to hold and the jobs they actually expect to hold. Many of the students surveyed are aware that they will likely hold multiple jobs and be self-employed as opposed to having one full-time job. The study also revealed that music majors desire that their undergraduate degree provide them with the skills necessary to be an employable musician in the 21st century in addition to providing artistic and technical skills on their instrument. Advisors/Committee Members: Lawson, Wayne (Advisor).
