The Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago

Tablet Collection Intern

June - August 2019 • Chicago, IL

What I liked

I learned extensively about ancient Mesopotamian cuneiform tablets (in languages of Akkadian, Sumerian, and Hittite) with Professor Susanne Paulus. I enjoyed my work of compiling scanned tablet images through Photoshop and updated the museum database.

What I wish was different

Museums could offer more paid internships.


If you are interested in museums work, figure out which positions in the museum interests you through work/internships! For me, while I am not interested in educational or curatorial works, I am interested in database, administrative, or marketing work in museums.
