Helping anthropology faculty prepare students for the job market - a preliminary foray

July 6, 2016

One of my personal and academic interests still is the professionalization of anthropologists. To that end, I volunteer on the Committee on Practicing, Applied and Public Interest Anthropology (CoPAPIA) in the American Anthropological Association (AAA). The mission of CoPAPIA is to:

 

"explore and engage the range of issues emerging as a result of the increasing number of anthropologists in and outside the academy doing practicing, applied and public interest work" - http://www.americananthro.org/ParticipateAndAdvocate/CommitteeDetail.aspx?ItemNumber=2224​

 

A report on that mini-project is here: http://www.anthropology-news.org/index.php/2016/05/13/helping-faculty-prepare-students-for-the-job-market/

​One of the key findings is that the variety of career options for those who graduate with a degree in anthropology needs to be made available to professors, who in turn introduce those options to students while in school. 

How can we provide example career options to anthropology students? I'm looking for suggestions.
