Are jobs in this industry on the rise? Are there any sub-sectors that are growing?

Where are the jobs? Which places have the most museum curator opportunities?

Sheryl,

Call or send your CV to all your local museums, galleries, universities and historical societies to volunteer.

Is there a particular area that you want to work in? Like Archeology, History and Art? Start with the museum that you may want to specialize in when you complete your BA.

Also, bare in mind you may also be working with volunteers that have MA degrees. There are more people than there are jobs and many graduates volunteer whilst they are looking for jobs in the Museum and Heritage sectors.

Be open to all jobs and projects that come your way and even ask if you can participate on projects.

Best of Luck.

Regards.
