As the internet continues to develop, so too does the amount of comprehensive anthropology link sites. In an attempt to avoid cyber-repetition, we will offer only links to those pages.
Also, don’t forget to view the AAA Internet Resources page!
H-NET has very comprehensive listings, including a lot which don’t advertise in the Anthropology News (particularly good if you cross into other disciplines or are interested in small liberal arts colleges).
Photoethnography Career Archive – This provides excellent career advice inside and outside of the field of anthropology about succeeding in an academia career.
NOTE: For non-academic job options, check directly with businesses, government agencies, non-government organizations (NGOs), and research institutions (too many good options out there to even begin to list these).
