It is a mere three blocks from the U.S. Capitol and occupies a commanding 430,000-square-feet of very unique real estate. Among many features, the Museum of the Bible features 40-foot bronze doors, a rooftop garden and eight floors dedicated to the history, narrative, and impact of the Bible.
The $500 million, nonprofit museum — which has been under construction for two years — opens its doors in mid-November. An entire section is devoted to the “Bible in America,” which includes a 3,300-pound replica of the Liberty Bell, the first exhibit item to be installed in the eight-story facility.
Though the site has swarmed with hundreds of construction workers and technicians for months, the museum operation now has 68 jobs to fill, both full and part-time.
“Museum of the Bible offers a highly challenging yet profoundly meaningful work environment where every person on staff is unified behind a unique and global mission,” the organization advises in a public outreach.
Time is of the essence, though. There is a recruiting event at a hotel on Capitol Hill on Tuesday; applicants should visit MuseumoftheBible.org/careers for more information. Some of the jobs start as early as Aug. 1.
“Positions to be filled include guest services associates, ticketing agents and retail associates (38 full-time, 30 part-time). All part-time positions offer an hourly rate of $15.00/hour while full-time positions offer competitive benefits including: medical/dental/vision, company paid life insurance as well as the opportunity to participate in the organization’s retirement plan which offers a company match,” the museum advises.
