I’m in the lucky position of having a girlfriend who has an 8 year old sister. That means that I have a built in excuse to continue to do “kid things,” even though I’m way too old to do them on my own without seeming creepy. Mini golf and bowling are certainly staples, although it’s not too weird for 20-somethings to do those (bowling with bumpers is another story), but one of my favorites is going to children’s museums. Not only do they provide a lot of fun, but they also always seem to teach me something. It’s amazing to see complex concepts explained with simple exhibits and toys. I also particularly enjoyed the “screaming booth” at one museum because I was able to max out the decibel meter. Now, the Boston Children’s Museum may or may not have a screaming booth, I don’t know, but they do have some exciting jobs for new college grads. That means that you can have a built in excuse to continue to do “kid things” just like I do.
I’ve never been to the Boston Children’s Museum, so I can’t tell you a lot about it, but I can tell you that they have some really cool looking exhibits. They’re also a “green” museum. Obviously, the best way to determine whether Boston Children’s Museum is a place that you’d like to work is to go visit and see what it’s all about. But before you do it, you should check out their job offerings. Their Jobs page was updated just yesterday, and it includes quite a few entry level job opportunities targeted towards new grads. You can find all of the descriptions on the Jobs page, but the titles include: Project Manager – Afterschool and Out of School Time, Accounting Assistant, Exhibit Technician (Temporary), Teaching Kits Assistant, Playspace Exhibit Interpreter, and Visitor Services Associate. There’s a link to a job application on the page; however, the instructions just say to send a cover letter, resume and salary history by email to jobs@BostonChildrensMuseum.org as a Microsoft Word file.
