Q: So… what can you do with your anthropology degree?
A: Anything I want.
Over the past two years, as I was getting my MA in Anthropology at NC State University, I had to ‘defend’ my major at every career fair. My enthusiasm (or sass?) over the skills that I acquired as an anthropologist in training got me three internships (two museums and one NGO) in two years. One of them was even paid.
Are you a medical anthropologist or have a strong interest in public health? How about a position with the World Health Organization (WHO)?
In particular, there is an opening at WHO for a Communication/Information Management Officer in Juba, South Sudan, closing in less than a week. A degree in social sciences and/or public health is essential.
Not ready to move abroad, but would like to put your research skills to good use? The American Evaluation Association is looking for a Researcher for Annapolis, MD. (Closing June 22nd)
