Temporary public employment is at the centre of the government's employment policies, and the cultural sector is included. The amount of unemployed persons employed in cultural institutions across the country, usually for for six-month terms is reflected in Table 3. Their majority are employed in local cultural centres or houses as "community coordinators" or "community workers" for a salary that is close to the minimum monthly wage. The campaign is coordinated by the National Institute for Culture (Nemzeti Művelődési Intézet).

Among students and graduates in the creative sector, the "Start Up Guide" developed by MOME Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design is broadly used for job searching and enterprise opportunities.
