Museum jobs in Los Angeles: tips, suggestions, advice?
May 11, 2014 7:41 PM Subscribe
Pretty basic: my partner and I are relocating from the East Coast to Los Angeles in July; I am hoping to find a job (or jobs) in one of LA's many fascinating cultural institutions. Primarily looking for positions in research, outreach, or education. I am looking for any suggestions as to listserves, forums, job posting boards, or other places where I can start looking for posted positions, as well as any local groups like the EMPs that I might be able to join once there.

I am interested in museum and other cultural institutions, but I've worked in other sectors of the educational and non-profit worlds as well. Do the universities (public and private) tend to post only on their own internal websites, or are staff/admin positions cross-posted? I do have some local connections, I'm on a museum educational listserv and AAMG-L and I know about AAM's jobs board. I did see that there is an AIA group that has a number of archaeological lectures a year. I'm hoping there's something like this
for the LA area.
Any suggestions are very welcome and very appreciated, as are tips about any great exhibits, awesome installations, or quirky galleries that I should check out.
(Given the location of my partner's job, we will probably be moving to Brentwood/Culver City/maybe Santa Monica-- I am completely open to jobs that do not require the 405!)
