I would love to work at the Smithsonian

When I graduate I have a future dream of becoming a museum archivist. The definition of an archivist for those who do not know is "a person responsible for preserving, organizing, or servicing archival material.'' I love history as well as organizing and perserving those documents and displays that our pass ancestors have let to show the future. From seeing the movies "Mummy Returns" and "National Treasure", I one day desire those roles that Evie and Abigail who apprepciated the interest in curating and perserving. According to the BLS website, "Archivists, curators, and museum technicians held about 27,000 jobs in 2006. About 38 percent were employed in museums, historical sites, and similar institutions, and 18 percent worked for State and private educational institutions, mainly college and university libraries." This is amazing that this field has a high level of interest to those people who love to connect closely with history!!!
