Museum job interview questions


Hello everyone! So here at the Ministry we get a lot of questions about museum careers and job hunting. Constant job applications are an inevitable part of every museum persons life- whether you are starting out and struggling to find something, or just because so many of us are on short term contracts! But as someone recently pointed out to us, there's actually very little guidance on museum-specific interview questions hanging around on the interweb. 



So in order to help the community at large we are asking you to submit some of the questions you've been asked in museum/art gallery/ and other heritage organisation interviews. Tweet them at us using the hashtag #museuminterview and then we will compile them into a final resource!

Here are a few we've had in the past just to get your started:


  • Give an example of a time you prioritized tasks.
  • Can you give an example of a documentation practice you improved?
  • Talk about a time you made a mistake and how you solved it.
  • What procedures are necessary for returning an object to its owner?
  • What research sources do you use in documentation work?
  • Can you name a time you applied SPECTRUM standards in the work place?
