Launching a career is challenging and, at times, intimidating. Designing an Anthropology Career provides undergraduate and graduate students with the tools they need to identify their career goals and follow through on them. Part I establishes a framework on how to begin designing a career in anthropology or other related fields. Part II contains a series of professional development exercises to help readers articulate their personal and professional histories, special abilities, and career goals. Each exercise is followed by a sample completed by an anthropology student or anthropologist to provide models for readers to complete their own exercises, which will be invaluable tools for choosing the right career. Throughout the text, the authors take a broad perspective to encourage readers to imagine an evolving anthropology career as a lifetime endeavor.
