What outside of traditional work, can I do with an Anthropology degree?

People seemed to get my previous question at first. Then, I got all kinds of advice on anthropology jobs and it was apparent that I didn't make my point very well. Because I am a mother with 3 young kids I have stepped away from my previous goals in anthropology. I have heard of others using their anthropology degree in other fields. I am curious to know what kinds of jobs are out there for someone who has my degree (because I still want to use it), but I only want ideas outside of traditional anthropology jobs.

The probability of you actually finding a job in anthropology with a BA that is outside of "tradition" is low. The most you will probably be able to do is work in an... More

Anthropology is, after all, the study of people. Therefore, it is probably the most versatile degree there is. What job exists that you DON'T work with people? The trick is "selling" your degree to the people who make the decisions about the job you want. I would think any job within the social sciences is an easy... More
