Posted on February 23, 2009 under public history jobs

I’ve been receiving a lot of queries regarding career advice for aspiring public historians.  I’m happy to respond to a certain amount of them, but now I’m swamped.  Therefore, I am instituting a policy:  I will no longer provide advice to you personally.  I will, however, publicly answer more general questions posted as comments to this thread.  This will reduce wear and tear on my inbox and also provide some public places to talk about general trends in the public history job market.  Thanks.

  1. Perhaps aspiring pubic historians would benefit from a run-down of what you look for when hiring new employees. It’s a quickly changing field with so many innovaive ideas and technologies. What are the expectations of potential employees at your institution, as well as in the field as a whole.

    I certainly hope that ‘passion’ comes into play!
