Don't Stop Me Now: Launching Your Museum Career

21 November 2020, Queen's University, Belfast
Museums Association One-day Conference

Museums are dynamic places to work, sharing knowledge, engaging with communities, and actively participating and impacting on society.  
Choosing a career in museums is an exciting and significant decision. But navigating the different options and getting that all important first step on the ladder can feel daunting.  
The Museums Association is here to help. This event is aimed at students and people seeking to work in museums, who want to find out more about their options and learn how they can have a positive impact in their career.  
Through an informative and fun programme, learn from people working in the sector about how to start your career and take part in some of the vibrant and impactful work that museums are delivering.  
Don’t Stop Me Now helps you consider new and different approaches to your career, giving practical advice and useful ideas to help you chart a path through the museums sector.
The day provides information on the range of careers available in museums, what they are looking for in new employees, and how you can make yourself stand out from the crowd to shape your own career.
