The summer tends to be a little quieter for us which gives us the opportunity to plan ahead for the fall and sometimes to take a staff outing. Last night the Communications Department went bowling and for sushi.
As you may suspect, we should stick to figuring out where to advertise, which reporters to approach, and how to market our exhibitions and programs. Professional bowlers we are not, especially me.
I grew up in the Boston area where they only had candlepin bowling, which uses very small balls without holes in them (and smaller pins). I had no idea until I went to college that there was another kind of bowling. They even had candlepin bowling on local television stations on Saturday mornings. But it was great fun. And the sushi was excellent.
All in all, the Museum is a great place to work for many reasons including the always interesting challenges, and the very passionate people who work here. If you or someone you know is looking for a job, be sure to check our job opportunities page on a regular basis.
