On many college campuses there’s a constant battle between the old and the new. We’re not talking about Senior-Freshmen rivalries – that’s so high school. We’re talking about the state of constant construction that is as much a part of going to college as wearing flip flops in the shower. Administrators and trustees are left to decide whether it is better to make do with the quirky inadequacies of a building from a century ago, or to knock it down and build a new monstrosity in the latest architectural fashion. There is a fine balance that needs to be achieved between architectural and historic integrity and function. Unfortunately, it seems more and more common that campus decision-makers are deciding in favor of state of the art facilities built atop the graves of their obsolete predecessors (I guess you know what One Day, One Job’s stand on this issue is).
Although they don’t focus on college campuses, the National Trust for Historic Preservation is a non-profit organization that is saving America’s diverse historic places through leadership, education, and advocacy. Just what many of our college campuses need! If you love history, architecture, and good taste, you might truly enjoy working for the National Trust. Their jobs are all over the place; you can be an interpreter at President Lincoln’s Cottage or an Accountant in their Community Investment Subsidiary. An Assistant Business Manager in the Center for Preservation Leadership or an IT Training & Staff Support Coordinator (the links to these jobs are now dead, for current opportunities visit the National Trust’s Careers page). The jobs get even more interesting as the experience level goes up. There are some really cool opportunities that require 3-5 years experience, which means you can either try to really impress them with your cover letter and resume or work your way up through the ranks.
The National Trust for Historic Preservation has an excellent website with simple navigation and very clear job descriptions. Applying for a job is as easy as sending a cover letter and resume to a position-specific e-mail address. This is definitely an organization to keep a constant watch on. You never know what kind of opportunity will show up next on their jobs page.
