CAREER IN ANTHROPOLOGY

Anthropologists work mainly in projects taken up by museums and universities for archaeological investigations, biological evolutionary studies and other research areas including languages. The students taking this profession should have interest in history, carious cultures and customs of tribal and communities. Those working with Government organization in demography, agricultural practices, tribal welfare and human resource development require a good language ability, logical mind and good memory. Ability to work on a task away in forests, inhabitated areas for long hours and over a long period with sustained interest in the job is important.

Job opportunities are available with International organizations like WHO, UNICEF, UN volunteer programmes, non Government organizations working for development of  tribal areas/backward areas, medical research establishments working on nutrition/preventive medicine, human resources department of large firms for cross cultural communication training of managers. Universities and museums for Archaeological surveys & research and biological surveys employ archaeologists.

It is expected that most new jobs in the coming decades will be non teaching positions in consulting firms, research institutes, corporations and the government. Growing awareness about environmental issues, historic and cultural variations of  various nations and the need to preserve traditions has created job opportunities in a variety of related organizations.
