  6. 6. Challenges Facing Canadian Museums: Challenges of Outlook Recent research has revealed that:  museums are continuing to hire largely for the traditional roles (curatorial, collections management, etc.)  museums have modest expectations of candidates’ knowledge of emerging digital tools and applications  there is a disconnect between what museums say they require from job candidates and what they actually ask for
