Please take a seat in the waiting area as we have a little chat about the all-important topic of portfolios as part of recruiting conservators: what makes a good one, what format should it be, and what do we put in ours? We’re joined by guest host Julia Jabłońska, an emerging paintings conservator, as we try to figure out what people want. Also tune in for an interview with Tamsin Russell from the Museums Association about interview confidence, a Dear Jane about PhD studies, and a special guest review from William Tregaskes of ’Always Time for Coffee’ by Kate Minchin. 00:00:39 News in brief 00:08:23 So what are conservation portfolios? 00:12:13 Academic work vs employment portfolio 00:16:42 Inspiration and anxiety 00:19:42 Do you put ’personality’ into yours? 00:36:31 Going digital 00:40:37 Twitter responses 00:52:55 Review of EPN portfolio workshop 00:55:38 Interview with Tamsin Russell, professional development officer 01:07:34 Review: ‘Always Time for Coffee’ 01:12:20 Dear Jane 01:18:41 Patreon shout out 01:19:47 Comments, questions, and corrections Show Notes: – Meet-up at #Icon19: https://www.facebook.com/events/334625240523009/ – ICOM working on a new definition of museum: https://icom.museum/en/news/the-museum-definition-the-backbone-of-icom/ – Fire at Notre Dame: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/apr/20/notre-dame-fire-uk-ready-to-share-conservation-expertise – About the EPN: https://icon.org.uk/groups/emerging-professionals-network/about-the-epn – ICON Emerging Professionals Network on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/307825550045272/ – S02E04 Emerging Professionals 2: http://thecword.show/2017/10/04/s02e04-emerging-professionals-2/ – Always Time For Coffee: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07N5MB5F5/ Support us on Patreon! http://www.patreon.com/thecword Hosted by Julia Jabłońska, Jenny Mathiasson, Kloe Rumsey, and Christina Rozeik.
