"Career Chats with the American Philosophical Society" surrounded by old and current photos of staff

Thursday, November 19

What does it take to work for America’s oldest learned society? Hear from staff at the American Philosophical Society (APS) as we learn just that! This series brings you real conversations with APS staff on their careers and how they came to work at the Society. 

Learn about archivists, conservators, and more as we explore the many careers and people of the APS. All Career Chats will be pre-recorded and uploaded on Thursday mornings. We’d love to hear if you have any questions about these careers! Submit those here.
