    Hi Rachel,

    Congratulations!

    I have worked with 400+ museums and cultural institutions in the U.S. and some in Canada and have helped a few people like you with introductions where i could.

    I recommend you look at your preferred Museum websites to see where there are opportunities that meet your career goals and ideal geographic locations. 

    When you find opportunities, recommend you apply ASAP as tomorrow the same position may not be available. Then, after you have applied, quickly email me the name of the institution and what positions you applied for and If I know someone at some of these institutions, I will promptly contact them and try to help if i can.

    If you pursue the above, please email me your resume through my website at www.artmanaskconsulting.com please. If you would like to discuss any of this, feel free to contact me the same way. Also, if you want to stay in the Bay Area, I have worked with most of the museums and other institutions in that area.

    Good luck and best wishes,

    Art

    Dear Art

    Always good to hear from those who have been doing this for awhile. I am looking at museums in my area as well as Seattle because if I were to move its a possibility.

    Thanks,

    Rachel

    Hi Rachel,

    I'm in Seattle and I'd be happy to talk to you about the museum sector here. I'm on the board of the Washington Museum Association, where I connect with a lot of Emerging Museum Professionals, and I work at the Henry Art Gallery. Feel free to email me at erikabh@henryart.org if you'd like to chat.

    Best of luck,

    Erika

    Hi Rachel, Keep an eye on the Crocker Art Museum's website for opportunities (we're in Sacramento). There isn't an open position at the moment, but we're getting a new director of education this year and there will surely be a shake up and new opportunities. It'll be a very exciting time in the edu Dept this year!

    Hi Rachel! Congrats on your recent graduation. Since you're in the Bay, I would highly encourage you to look at the internship program at SFMOMA. There are opportunities in a lot of different departments, and the team here is truly amazing. The application deadline is March 15th. Good luck!
