Founded in 1869 with the help of Theodore Roosevelt, Sr. (Teddy’s father), the American Museum of Natural History was the first of its kind in New York City. A museum devoted entirely to the wonders of the world, it now houses amazing collections on minerals and gems, fossils, mammals, a variety of anthropological exhibits, a planetarium and much more. A few notable items that are currently housed in the museum include a life-sized model of a blue whale, the “Star of India” – the world’s largest blue sapphire, and a Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton. The museum should definitely be on your list to visit if you’re ever in NYC, and it’s also a great place to consider for employment. If you love the natural world but can’t resist the pull of a big city, what better place to start your career than a natural history museum?
The American Museum of Natural History offers entry-level jobs in a number of different areas. Some of the listings say that up to 2 years of experience is required; however, the job descriptions for the positions that we’ve identified make the jobs sound like something that most of our readers would be fully prepared for after graduating college. Current openings include: Administrative Assistant/Junior Analyst (the description on this one actually doesn’t sound too secretarial); Assistant Director, Stewardship (some type of development experience is probably necessary, whether volunteer or internship); Development Associate (job description uses the term “entry level”); Marketing Associate, Communications; and Web Developer (temporary position with an opportunity to go permanent). The museum also lists a number of part-time jobs on their jobs page. Speaking of which, it’s a little hard to find the American Museum of Natural History’s jobs page, so they could stand to make it a little more visible. We were also disappointed by the lack of a clear About page on the site. It’s a good thing there’s Wikipedia to save the day.
The last thing that we should tell you about applying for a job at the American Museum of Natural History, that they don’t “solicit or accept applications or résumés unless it is for a specific job listed on this website.” So, cold calling is out on this one, but they have a lot of entry-level job openings anyways. It shouldn’t be a problem.
Note: On April 27th we revisited entry-level jobs at American Museum of Natural History.
