Working at the Smithsonian
- An organization with the size and diversity of the Smithsonian requires a large,
savvy and creative administrative staff to keep things running smoothly. Many of these "office" positions are in work
environments unique to the Smithsonian and offer challenging assignments. Administrative positions include everything from
entry-level clerical jobs, administrative assistants, program and project managers to administrative officers and associate
directors managing multi-million dollar budgets and operations for large departments or museums.
- These positions require high school graduation with additional technical
education or degrees for the higher level administrators. Many employees have been promoted from within because of their
knowledge of unique and highly specialized aspects of the Smithsonian.
