S06E07: Side Hustle

We take a look at some of the many ways in which conservators earn money on the side (and the reasons we might do so): Kloe talks about her bellydancing, Jenny shares her experiences of temping and gig economy freelancing, and Christina shares some career wisdom. Also tune in for some brilliant listener contributions, and a Dear Jane about taking a job that isn’t perfect.

    Maybe you can explore on a future podcast the unpaid side hustles that emerging conservators and museum professionals are forced to take on to gain experience in the field. Tis would include volunteering and unpaid internships.
