Sari’s Answer

I would say the museum curator field is fairly competitive. These positions generally require an advanced degree, often a Phd, and admittance to specialized graduate schools is also competitive.

There are many rewards including having the opportunity to further research in an area of interest and physically examine and study objects.

Museums often posts positions on their websites and there are sites like nyfa.org (New York Foundation for the Arts) that advertise positions in the arts, generally in the New York area.

Kasia’s Answer

Based on my experience I can see that job opportunities for the museum curator role are not only very limited, but also having very high requirements. I would advise a good research before taking any long-term decision here.
