    Hi there, I'm currently in year 10 and will be doing work experience soon. We were given a form and are required to select three occupations of our choices. I really enjoy history and have always wanted to study it in the future. The problem is however, I am worried about the limited jobs available within that particular field, especially around my hometown. My parents have suggested going to the museum and I think that is most probably where I will be going at the end of the day, but can you guys help me out a little and recommend other jobs involved with history? Thanks a lot in advance

    I think the museum is probably your best bet. Imagine all of the information you will learn with a few days in a museum! It would also look really good on your personal statement when it comes to applying to university (if that's what you decide to do). As for other history related placements, are there any sort of archaeological groups/societies in your area?

    The only other things that I could think of would be to work in a library? I know it isn't entirely history related, but it may give you some good contacts for the future. Does your school have a careers advisor? If so, go and have a chat with them and see if they can suggest anything.
