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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This book takes career exploration to the next level. It presents a valuable set of techniques and exercises to help anthropologists apply their knowledge, skills, and experiences to the job search regardless of their stage in the career cycle. The authors' systematic approach focuses on both understanding one's own interests and capabilities, and then representing them effectively in the workplace. -- Elizabeth Briody, General Motors Research & Development
Designing an Anthropology Career is a very welcome and much-needed addition to the literature and resources available for current and prospective anthropology students at all levels of education. The book's exercises will be used by groups of students working together as they reflect on their varied backgrounds, discuss their experiences, and develop new insights for their career development. At the same time, students and others working on their own will also find this book an invaluable resource in assessing their prospects for an anthropology career and making that career a reality. Anthropologists with undergraduate, master's, and doctoral degrees are finding employment in a rich array of careers, and this book can help them think about and prepare for their future. -- Linda A. Bennett, University of Memphis
