Copied right over from the Boston EMP announcement:

Hello Boston EMPers!

Interested in working for the government but daunted by all the paperwork, grade levels, and bureaucracy that goes into applying?  Come attend our June workshop – learn the basics of the application process and some of the reasons working for the government may or may not be for you!

Alicia Paresi has worked with the Northeast Museum Services Center, a part of the National Park Services, for over 15 years.  She is the Curator of Archeology Collections and will talk about working for museums and programs operated by the government, some of the pros and cons of government work, and how to apply for your first government job.

The workshop will be at 6pm on June 27th at the Northeast Museum Services Center in the Charlestown Navy Yard, Charlestown MA, near the USS Constitution Museum.  Parking is available but needs to be arranged prior to arrival.  The discussion will be from 6 – 7pm, followed by a brief tour of the building, some of the current archaeological projects, and the archives from 7 – 7:30pm.  If there is interest after the workshop we can get dinner or drinks and continue the conversation!

RSVPs are required for attendance.  Please RSVP by responding to this email by June 18th and note if you will be driving.

See you there!
