What Does it Take to Get that Archaeology Job?- Project Managers/Directors

The next installment from Doug about management positions in archaeology.  This is what I did for many years and it turns out I did it fairly well.  Unfortunately, I think that often a real business person would do this better than most archaeologists.  I was a little surprised in my first job as a Project Supervisor when I was handling the business end of six-figure contracts while running multiple field projects.  It was a big leap from classes in Cultural Evolution, Ethnobotany, or Ethnographic Techniques.

Here’s the most recent table from Doug.  Click for a link to his post.
