Archives and Records Management Jobs Analysis
Data was collected on 218 job openings in the United States and Canada from a two month period from September 16 to November 15, 2020, including job titles and descriptions, employment type, organization type, and geographic region.
Soft skills such as “communication skills,” “organizational skills,” “ability to multitask,” “interpersonal, oral and written skills,” and “attention to detail” show up in some form of wording in nearly every listing.
To assess the current job market, candidate requirements like education, experience, software skills, abilities, and knowledge were also analyzed. The jobs analysis for the MARA program is conducted annually in the fall, and the updated report is published in early winter.
