      Working in the Sackler Center means having direct access to the installed exhibitions in the Museum Building, a privilege for any art lover. The Education Department is full of wonderfully talented and intelligent person. As an intern you will learn the pedagogical aims of the department and about museum education generally. The Guggenheim's internship program must be one of the best in the art world being that there is an internship coordinator who oversees that interns are learning from their experience. There are field trips along the way and it does feel like a wonderful community to be a part of. In addition you ca use your Guggenheim ID to get into other museums across the world for free.


      I observed that it is difficult to advance to a higher position. Often to do this you must be working there already and just wait for someone to retire/ leave their post. Although, I think this is true of any competitive field. The Sackler Center offices have no natural light. At least other departments downtown have natural light. Interns are not paid, nor are they given metro cards. However the museum offers visas to internationals.

        It was amazing to have access to an incredible institution and a chance to learn about museum work at the highest level. The people I worked with were brilliant and also very kind. The internship program included an educational component focused on careers in the art world, which was both fun and very helpful. And interns also got to go to museum events, either in the capacity of assisting with various tasks, or just as guests.


        I was surprised that the work was so independent. For some, this might be a pro, but I wish I'd had a little more supervision—not because the quality of my work was impacted, but because I think I would have learned more if I had dealt more closely with my supervisors. I also wish I had had the opportunity to got to more meetings. I was an unpaid intern, so I cannot really comment on the quality of compensation, but I do wish paid internships were offered.

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)



      During my interview with a Vice President, he mentioned that the "background check" had been reviewed. He brought up cities I had lived in at one point, even though I hadn't included that information on my resume or LinkedIn profile, though it is accurate. Additionally, he was aware of my entrepreneurship experience, which I had not disclosed anywhere. I'm curious about the source of this information. I'm currently progressing through the interview rounds without any offer or signed documents.



      I’m moving on to round 3 of the interview process after speaking with the VP and it’ll be with peers. My position would be Insurance Product Manager so the peers would be internal stakeholders (Sales, Engineering, Underwriting, Actuary, etc.) What kind of questions typically do peer interviews ask?

      I have an interview tomorrow for a position as a Fundraiser Specialist for a company that raises funds for children. Any insight or advice to give? I do not have any experience working in fundraising but have worked in sales and have worked in childcare for several years. Thank you!
