From the National Emerging Museum Professionals Organization:

In order to make the hiring process in museums more equitable and ensure that any open positions are both transparent and open to more applicants, we recommend your job postings include the following information:

  • Paid positions only
  • Must include an accurate salary range
  • Must include the name and title of the person to whom candidates should address applications
  • Must include interview format (panel, one-on-one, group, etc.)
  • We strongly encourage you to accept relevant experience alongside any degree requirements
  • Must include breakdown of hiring process from application to training
  1. Paid positions only
    • Unpaid internships are only available to those who can afford to work for free, and disqualify many people without the means from getting experience in our field.
  2. Must include an accurate salary range
    • The job hunt is time-consuming and expensive for both the employer and prospective employee. Posting an accurate salary range will help both sides avoid wasting time on jobs/candidates they cannot afford.
  3. Must include the name and title of the person to whom candidates should address applications
    • This avoids any confusion for candidates submitting applications, resumes, and cover letters.
  4. Must include interview format (group, panel, one-on-one, etc.)
    • This allows candidates to better prepare for an interview and reduce the stress of the unknown.
  5. We strongly encourage you to accept relevant experience alongside any degree requirements
    • Degree requirements exclude those who were unable to obtain a degree for financial reasons but instead worked in related fields. Job requirements should not have barriers to those who chose/needed to work instead of pursuing higher education.
  6. Must include a breakdown of the hiring process from application to training
    • This offers candidates a clear picture of what to expect and give them a better understanding of your timeline.
