Editorial Reviews

Review

This book takes career exploration to the next level. It presents a valuable set of techniques and exercises to help anthropologists apply their knowledge, skills, and experiences to the job search regardless of their stage in the career cycle. The authors' systematic approach focuses on both understanding one's own interests and capabilities, and then representing them effectively in the workplace. (Elizabeth Briody, General Motors Research & Development)

Designing an Anthropology Career is a very welcome and much-needed addition to the literature and resources available for current and prospective anthropology students at all levels of education. The book's exercises will be used by groups of students working together as they reflect on their varied backgrounds, discuss their experiences, and develop new insights for their career development. At the same time, students and others working on their own will also find this book an invaluable resource in assessing their prospects for an anthropology career and making that career a reality. Anthropologists with undergraduate, master's, and doctoral degrees are finding employment in a rich array of careers, and this book can help them think about and prepare for their future. (Linda A. Bennett, University of Memphis)

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By L. Roth on January 9, 2010
Format: Paperback
This publication and its professional development exercises are practical, timely and useful beyond anthropology. The book is well written and includes many graphics and forms encouraging the reader to begin active participation in their future career immediately. This is a must read for aspiring anthropologists, parents of anthropology students and educators.
