Past Webinars

Ira Pemstein , the Supervisory Archivist at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library joined us at our first History’s Calling event on August 4, 2020, speaking with students about how he obtained his degree and gained work experience through volunteer and internship opportunities. He discussed the need for qualifying candidates of similar jobs to be well-rounded in education, technology, experience, and policy writing/reading. Ira’s examples of his drive, perseverance, networking abilities, and love of preserving accurate historical documents, provides a baseline framework for how students can approach their area of study and achieve their career potential.
