The 22-year-old Parkville resident has had a few job interviews, but no concrete offers for when she earns her bachelor’s degree in history with a concentration in pre-museum studies, but is hopeful she will secure an entry-level position in a museum before the end of the summer.
“I’m starting to get a little anxious just because I don’t have a job lined up yet,” Ms. Livingston said. “I know my parents will be there for me if I need them, so that takes some of the stress out of it.”
Though her parents have pledged their financial support if she absolutely needs it, the 2003 Institute of Notre Dame, Baltimore, graduate is looking forward to becoming economically independent.
