A primary introduction to developing a career in the archival profession.  Learn the basic requirements, and tips for landing your first job. 

People come to the archival profession for many reasons—to tell the story of a community, preserve a piece of history, hold people and institutions accountable, improve access through technology, connect researchers with the documents they need, and more. They work with digital documents, rare manuscripts, analog film, letters, postcards, diaries, photographs, organizational records—and that’s just the start of it.  This informative session will help you explore the possibilities of launching a new career.
