How to get a job after I graduate?

Ok, I am graduating in May '08, as an Anthropolgy major, minor in Religious Studies. I have no idea where to look for a job in my field, I am not planning on going to graduate school right away, I need to start paying my student loans back ASAP! I have asked my professors but no one has given me a solid answer. My main study of interest include, Egypt, and religion practiced all over the world, both ancient and present. So where or how do I start my career? Cleveland State University just has Anthropology as a major, it isn't divided by cultural or phsical.

Obviously you didn't major in physical anthropology, considering the whole religious studies thing. So basically you majored in cultural anthropology, right???

One thing you can do is talk to your minister about opportunities around the world. There are groups of Americans who work for their religious organizations in their field of study with the added bonus of doing it in a religious setting. Good Luck! This might include teaching English or working with Human Rights... More

Do you need to work where you can use your degree? Or, per se, in your field. There are all kinds of places a person with any bachelor's degree can work... But, with your studies, I would say museums, libraries, churches/religious organizations...

If your professors can't tell you where to start looking then it sounds like you could have a problem. Maybe you should go ahead and start graduate school. Best wishes.

Hi! I'm a cultural anthropologist and have been working as one for about 5 years. You DO need an MA to work as an anthropologist, there's just no two ways of getting around it. I would do what someone else said--put your loans on deferrment and get yourself into an MA program. You can put yourself through a graduate... More
