Published by David Connolly
This guide has been written as a useful source of information and advice for students on the University of Leicester’s MA/Diploma in Museum Studies in their search for employment opportunities. As well as practical tips for making written applications and performing well at interviews, the guide provides useful tips for approaching and managing the job hunting process and further sources of information. Although this guide is written mainly for those seeking opportunities in the UK, many of the principles of making effective applications can also be used by those seeking employment elsewhere in the world. It is important, however, to research the appropriate methods for the countries to which you are applying, as application methods and employer expectations can vary.
