Promising Job Market for Anthropology PhDs 

"The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported in June of 2012 that of all, yes all occupations tracked by the BLS, jobs for anthropologists (to include sub-fields, especially archaeology) are expected to grow more that all other occupations combined, a staggering 21% over the next 8 years, with all other social science related fields projected to grow 18%....The job market for anthropologists has never been better, more diversified, or more lucrative (no matter flavor of filthy lucre you favor – cash money, benefits, tenure of one shade or another, world travel, adoring students, stacks of papers to grade, etc. and then some and so on)."  (excerpt from L. Angelina Howell's blog)
