Hi everyone! Welcome to the slides for Digital Careers at a Crossroads: Next Steps and New Paths. Elissa, Max, and Chad presented this talk at the Museum Computer Network’s 2016 conference in New Orleans. This was an exploratory session, meant to pose questions and problems, but we don’t have the answers just yet. Maybe you do, though, and if you do, feel free to reach out to us on Twitter.
