1. You need to work in a museum before you can work in a museum
This means that prior museum experience is pretty much mandatory even for entry-level museum jobs.  Let’s just say that there are lots of applicants for every museum position, and the ones that have prior museum experience rise to the top of the pile. Volunteering and internships are very important to prepare for a museum career.
