Approaching the end of your archival education program?   Now it’s time to start looking for a job.   Pursuing that all-important first position in your chosen field can be quite a daunting task.   In order to ease that process as much as possible we have developed this list of resources for pursuing a career in archives.   While the vast majority of the resources listed are primarily links to job listings, there are also a number of Web sites that offer advice and information on everything archives related.


General Employment Information for Archives

These Web sites offer general information relating to careers in archives and records management.   For the most part these sites cover information on the job search process, though a bit of navigation could direct you to job listings as well.   Of particular interest is the blog That Elusive Archives Job, which discusses the job hunting process and the obstacles that arise in the search for an archives position.
