I began interning at the Smithsonian Center for Education and Museum Studies in September of 2011, and after working on heritage programming for 3 and a half months I realized I might never find another place so suited to my interests. Luckily, a part-time job opened up, and guess what? Now I’m employed!" To read more, click here.
