In this post, I’d like to talk a little about searching online for jobs when you are an Anthropology major. If you are a student, you might have typed the word, “Anthropology,” into job websites like Monster.com and Indeed.com. And then you might be frustrated when there are not very many results. And then you might think that there are no jobs for Anthropology majors. But that’s not true! There are lots of jobs that are a good fit for people with a degree in Anthropology! For a few examples, see my previous post where I wrote about some possible career options.
Today I’d like to share a tip and a great resource to help you search more effectively for jobs online. Here’s the tip–instead of searching on job websites with the word “Anthropology,” try searching for specific job titles that you’re interested in. But what if you don’t know what job titles to search for? No problem! The Anthropology Career Readiness Commission has a great resource for you! They have a PDF document called “Career Readiness Job Titles” that contains a long list of actual job titles held by real Anthropology graduates! You can download this document here.
Of course, this document does not list every possible job title you could have with a degree in Anthropology, but it will give you a great start! And I’ll talk more about careers for Anthropology majors and finding jobs with an Anthropology degree in future blog posts.
Also, I made a short TikTok video that shares the information from this blog post, so be sure to check it out! The video is embedded below, or you can view it on your computer browser using this link. You can follow me on TikTok at this link or you can search for my profile “anthropology4u.”
