The Pokémon Company is looking to hire an archivist for an internal archive/museum
A professor of Pokémon, if you will
How well do you know your Pokémon? We’re not talking about just a few Pokémon here and there, but every single Pokémon in existence, as well as intricate details on their makeup, attributes, and more. Oh, and how about major and minor details on all things Pokémon in general? If you think you have what it takes, you might be able to land yourself a spot at the Pokémon Company.
The Pokémon Company is looking for an archivist to help build an “internal The Pokémon Company International Company Archive and Museum,” to work along with the company’s “Game Data Librarian” to “conduct large-scale inventories, write policy, process, catalog, preserve, and other duties that will establish and develop the company’s first internal archive from the ground up.”
Pokémon Co. is working on an “internal physical repository” as well as “digital repositories” for its Pokémon archives, and the archivist will have to build a “descriptive metadata schema” for searching the archives. On top of that, the archivist must store samples of cards from the TCG, create a security protocol for the museum, and help the company acquire relevant artifacts for the museum.
