Courtesy of Museos Unite, a blog I have only just discovered, but am enjoying immensely, here are four skills everyone working in museums should have:

1. Social Media
2. Grant Writing
3. Computer Software
4. People Skills / Management

Please check out their complete post here for their elaborations and reasoning behind each skill set.

I think this is a pretty good starting list; it’ll give me a good springboard to search for free professional development opportunities to list here, at any rate!
