A weekly posting of professional jobs open to anthropologists.

AnthroJobs of the Week, 23 January 2018

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.

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
