Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to examine which characteristics increase a person’s employability in the music industry, more specifically in the creative positions such as A&R, marketing and promotion. The study is qualitative and based on five interviews with people on recruiting positions, such as general managers and human resource managers, at different companies within the music industry.

The results of the study show that the most important characteristics that increase employability are personal characteristics. An extrovert personality type is more suited for a job in the music industry, because of the need to socialize and network. The personal characteristics also have to fit in with the organizational culture and be suitable with other personalities in the company. The other important characteristics that increase employability are social skills and other competences. The role of music industry is discussed, and the results show that an education is not crucial to be recruited for a creative position in the music industry. However, an education can increase a person’s employability by developing desirable generic skills.
