Whitney Museum of American Art

Gallery Assistant

February 2018 • New York City, NY

What I liked

I've been at the Whitney since 2015, first as a volunteer and now as a part-time worker and I always feel like it's a big family!

What I wish was different

Nothing major.

Advice

If you don't like the vibe of the company where you are working try to understand and pinpoint what it is exactly that makes your day go so slow. Eventually look for something else, there is no need to stick with something that makes us unhappy. On the other hand, if you enjoy the atmosphere of your job, don't let go of it and give it you 1000%!!
