“My experience as a recent Fort Lewis anthropology graduate working for the National Park Service has been rewarding in many aspects. I have had the opportunity to work in cultural resources for two years as an archaeological technician, and have now worked in natural resources for over a year as a biological technician. In both positions, all of the skills I developed as a student have been utilized. The opportunity to apply many anthropological concepts and research topics that are valuable to me is part of my daily routine at work. In addition to benefits to my career path, I feel confident that the skills necessary to succeed in other endeavors like graduate school are with me as well.”
