It’s that time of year: internship and/or job searching for many students or for those looking for a change. While you probably have excellent Googling skills, I thought it might helpful to have a list of sites to check frequently for postings. Some you might know, some might be new. If you have others, please share.
- HistPres and @HistPres
- Preservation Directory Job Postings
- Preservation Nation (National Trust for Historic Preservation) & @PreservationJob
- University of Mary Washington HP department job bank
- Student Conservation Association
Internships are the best. I’ve waxed poetic about the benefits of internships previously, so I won’t go on and on. Instead, in summary: Internships.
- Low paying? Yes. You can do it for a short time. Get roommates.
- Short Term? Perfect. If you don’t like, not the end of the world.
- Experience? Tons. You’re the intern. You can soak up all the information you need. And then take another internship!
Good luck searching. If you want to talk internships or job searching or grad school, send me an email or leave a comment. Have fun!
Also, Happy Groundhog Day. Winter, what winter (in Vermont)?
