Career as an Archivist
Archivists are in charge of putting together, documenting, storing, and maintaining important historic records. Archivists deal with a broad variety of government and industry, and if trained, they will switch among positions, subspecialties, and institutions. Archivists may engage in the preservation and dissemination of unique types of documents, such as charts, clips, or documents, or data about a particular topic or field of interest. This is especially true for vast repositories with multiple offices. It should be remembered, however, that the majority of programs need a sole archivist to perform various functions. Positions in document administration, in addition, may have some overlapping.
