This week I want to focus on anthropology jobs that can take you abroad. Recently, in my personal job search, I have been reaching out and speaking with international development professionals. They have offered me lots of meaningful advice in finding a job. Every person I have spoken with suggests: Go work in another country, and learn another culture and language. Even if you already know another language and have already lived in another country, adding a different experience abroad will allow you to progress further in your career. This may be advice specific to those wanting to work in… Continue reading

I apologize for not having happier stories to lift the spirits at this time of year.  But I hope you’ll take a critical look at some of these issues, and, if they interest you, find a way to contribute to these conversations.  I included a few more than usual since you’re all most likely at “home” reading this over a nice cup of coffee/tea/water/spirits.

If you have a scientific American subscription, I’d check out this article about the evolution of trust in a digital economy by anthropologist Natalie Smolenski.  I’ve been ruminating a lot lately about how… Continue reading
