Job/Internship Links

Here you’ll find a comprehensive list of websites that maintain job and internship postings in Public History, Museums, Archives, Historical Preservation, Interpretation and Education, Arts, Anthropology and Archaeology, and Academia. For current postings that have come to me through email (that may or may not be posting elsewhere), see the Latest Opportunities page (from the Student Resources drop-down menu).

It is also worth doing a search on one of the master internet jobs databases, like or, with keywords like “historian,” “curator,” etc. And, of course, if there is a specific place you dream of working, check to see if the institution posts jobs on their website—and check it often! Some institutions circulate open positions internally before making them public, so if you know someone, make sure they know of (and remember) your interest.
