As a… digital archivist. In 2011. Don’t be too disappointed though, we’re guessing the boss wouldn’t have popped by very often for this kind of gig.
The Library Journal’s Tumblr unearthed a job listing from the “I Need a Library Job” daily email circa 2011/your greatest dreams. The request for a technically-savvy digital archivist was sent out by Parkwood Entertainment, Beyoncé’s management company. Apparently, some lucky Temple University students were also encouraged to apply.
