You may have noticed that we have posted lots of User Experience and other types of hip job listings lately. But don’t despair; the classic anthropology jobs are still out there. As ye seek, O curious ones, so shall ye find. And plenty of these are for bachelor-level educations.
Oh, and if you put “anthropology jobs” in a search engine (I am not going to say the “G” word), you will find some interesting blogs about anthropological employment.
Let’s start with this classic at the graduate level: Cultural Resource Principal Investigator. It’s in the Albuquerque area, salary range is $75-100K (sweet!), and 8 years of field experience and 5 years of management are required, along with lots of other criteria.
Here is another classic for practitioner anthropologists: Social Worker IV, for Humboldt County, CA. Requirements are fluid for different positions/levels, but a BA or MA in anthropology works, with at least two years of experience desired. Salary is listed as $23-$37/hr.
OK, how about one more? A Historic Preservation Specialist for the State of Tennessee in Davidson County (Nashville area). A bachelor’s degree and two year’s experience fits the basic bill, and this is not entry level. Salary is listed as $3,205 monthly.
Happy Job Hunting! Reassure your folks that there are still plenty of anthropology jobs to be had.
