Jobs! Internships!

I found a few jobs this week although I always would say to check out ITAA as they have oceans of professor listing at this time.

1. Collections Manager. “Phoenix-based private museum seeks experienced Collections Manager. The highly diverse collections consist of more than 5,500 objects ranging from ancient to contemporary art in all mediums. The most significant areas represented are ancient and historic art of the Americas and historic jewelry of India. Textiles comprise about half the collections. The Collections Manager will complete a physical inventory and photographic documentation of the collections. In addition he/she will add catalog data to the existing database. Ongoing responsibilities will include object research and processing of acquisitions and loans. Applicants should have a minimum of three years experience in collections management and preservation practices and a degree in Museum Studies or a related field. Proficiency in current registration practices, cataloging standards, and the TMS data management system is necessary. Familiarity with cultures of Latin America or India and a reading knowledge of Spanish would be helpful. The successful candidate will be a hands-on self starter, eager to expand his/her horizons and happy to work alone on frequent occasions. Salary and benefits will be commensurate with qualifications.

2. (If you happen to go to Drexel U.) Historic Costume Collection Work-Study Assistant. The Drexel Historic Costume Collection (DHCC) is an educational resource housing over two hundred years of historic costume and accessories; it is utilized primarily by Fashion Design and Design & Merchandising programs in Antoinette Westphal College of Media Arts & Design (AWCoMAD), but is open the entire university and the general public. Work-study (WS) students in the DHCC will assist the Collections Technician (CT), Graduate Assistant (GA), and Curator with daily operations and special exhibitions. Normal activities include assisting with cataloging, receiving new garment donations, tours, cleaning and organizing and, if the WC has the appropriate skills, sewing custom storage items. During special exhibitions WS will help with preparing dress forms, packing, labeling, installing/deinstalling exhibitions. Contact Tammi Worsham

3. Fashion Career Center-I found a nice website for those wanting to work in the fashion industry. Often these sites are pretty awful, but this one is helpful as far as I can determine. Go to the link and then to the middle of the lower portion of the page where it says “Job Board” in red. Then you’re off and running!

4. It seems Fairchild Pubs. runs a pretty thorough internship program. My internships were all rewarding and 8 weeks in the trenches does in fact help acquire some know-how. I slogged through three of them and looking back it was worth every errand and awkward conversation as those experiences got me into some good positions later on.
