Question by : How do you get hired as a museum assistant in California?
I’m a new graduate interested in museum science and I was just curious if anyone out there had a similar experience. How do you break into the field of museum science? Are any museums hiring for anything? Is this job impossible to get, and if so, how did the people who work there get hired?

I recommend going to all the museums of interest to you and checking their websites under “Employment.” I’ve given you a link below to Assistant Curator job postings so you can see the sorts of qualifications that different museums are searching for.
If you can’t find paid work immediately, look for volunteer opportunities. You’ll make valuable connections with people who may want to hire you in the future, while gaining experience in your chosen field.
Good luck in pursuing your dream.
