What kind of jobs are available for Anthropology?
Im very interested in History and Civilizations. I have considered getting my degree in anthropology but I am not sure what jobs would be available for such a degree. Both my counselor and some of my family says "no" "anthropology is only for rich kids that already have trust funds and such"

Your counselor and parents are wrong. It is not just for rich kids with trust funds! You will not get rich doing anthropology, but if you love the field, its worth it. If you are in the US, jobs depend on what sub-discipline you choose to focus in...cultural/bio/ling./or archaeology.

You can teach, do research in a museum or work for gov't. You can be a linguistic anthropologist, cultural anthropologist, physical anthropologist or archaelogist. Do it, I bet you love it AND make a living. See aaanet.org for more info
