Volunteering is a great way to get a foot in the door at a museum. Many museums look to their volunteers when a new paid position opens up. In addition to museums, Philadelphia is home to a number of excellent mission-driven organizations that would look great on your resume. One such organization is Laurel Hill Cemetery. Below is the email blast Laurel Hill sent out to recruit new volunteers ahead of their busy fall season:
The Fall season is upon us!
Why not consider donating your time to the liveliest cemetery in town?
