Last Updated by Melinda Marsh

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!

AAA Positions Open listings
The Chronicle of Higher Education if you check every week, you can see all the listings for free. Also great advice columns.
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).
