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

Tuesday, March 2 from 4:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. (ET)

What does it take to work for America’s oldest learned society? This workshop will highlight the real conversations we’ve had with APS staff on their careers and how they came to work at the Society. The APS is home to and is a museum, research library, archive, conservation lab, publications department, scholarly society, and more! Join us and learn about the broad range of careers that an organization like the APS employs. 

In this workshop, educators will learn a bit more about our Career Chats resources and gain behind-the-scenes information on Gallery, Library, Archives, and Museum careers.
