Building Careers in Anthropology Conference

The anthropology-wide Career Readiness Commission invites you to an all-day conference on May 13 at Fordham’s Gabelli School of Business (near Lincoln Center). The conference offers something for everyone! Gillian Tett (Financial Times) will deliver a plenary on “Communicating Anthropology” to those outside our community (e.g., prospective employers, colleagues, media professionals). Twelve workshops (see below) have been designed with a mixed audience in mind:

  • For instructors: ideas and resources for preparing your students for the workplace

  • For students, practitioners, and those seeking a career reset: Job market skills and finding and developing your career.
