Members Only - Transferring Skills: Connecting Visitor Studies to Other Fields

Throughout the pandemic Museums, Zoos, Aquariums, and other cultural centers have continued to be impacted by closures, loss of revenue, and staffing reductions. Many VSA members and other research and evaluation staff have found themselves laid-off, furloughed, or otherwise without work. In these uncertain times it can be difficult to find new, exciting, and rewarding positions within the museum field. Join VSA for a 1 hour webchat with a panel of researchers and evaluators as they discuss their experience transferring visitor studies skills into different industries and fields. Topics to look forward to include: Articulating your why for moving to a new field. Resume verbiage and helpful tips for drawing comparisons to visitors studies and other fields. Identifying opportunities to build your portfolio. Retaining a sense of self and passion for the field while operating outside of it.
