PA work and new archaeology jobs web site

Hi folks -

Even in this holiday season the job openings are still coming in - If you
hear about a position you can just send it directly to
shovelbums@onelist.com . Jennifer Hutchey just sent us all these PI and
field tech openings in Pennsylvania. I also want to announce her new -
well that is not quite right, the site has been around in many incarnations
since '96, but a new URL is more accurate - web site for CRM postions and
other related items by Jennifer at:

http://arch.hutchey.com

Jennifer's site is still being developed but like the other URL's in the
sig file this is a good one for any professional field tech to bookmark and
pass on. While I am up here on the back of my Conestoga hocking snake oils
I would also like to remind you of several other good resources.

A - Kris Hirst maintains the site http://archaeology.about.com which
includes a wealth of information about CRM and archaeology issues from all
corners of the world (hmmm it is actually a sphere so that is a bit
non-sensical...ooops sorry I digress). Kris also scours the web and puts
out a weekly e-mail newsletter called "random samples". I highly recommend
random samples as a great tool to keep abreast of what is going in the
field we love outside of our own little world, even better this newsletter
is well suited to our MTV attention spans - click, read, go on. You can
think of "random samples" as the meso-scale view of archaeology in the
last week. Regardless, do yourself a favor. Join at:

B - Ken Stuarts very popular CRM jobs and field school web site is
at http://www.sscnet.ucla.edu/ioa/cgi-bin/show-opps.pl

C - Last, but far from least, is the comprehensive web site for the
American Cultural Resources Association http://www.acra-crm.org/ Jobs,
laws, links - more fun then a shiny new 45-5. Whether you are an undergrad
thinking you might want to try CRM out or you are an old field hand from
the All American Pipeline days visit this site, and more importantly join
the ACRA-L mailing list at http://www.acra-crm.org/acra-l.html to keep
abreast of current issues relating to cultural resources (no ACRA
membership is required to subscribe - also - I highly recommend digest mode
- some users can be very chatty and opinionated ;-). The archives are also
on the web site and are sorted by thread, very convenient. If you are
serious about CRM you have to be aware of the laws that effect us and this
is the list to be on IMHO. Also, as a student you can become a non-voting
associate member of ACRA for only $25 (oops which reminds me I need to send
in my check still). Do yourself a professional favor. Join the list, join
the organization. There is more to CRM then just per-diem and cash
pipelines (ohh but when they flow they are oh so nice!)

Last but not least onto the job openings

Best Regards y'all - have a safe holiday season. May Santa bring you a new
trowel, metric folding ruler, and a Pentax K-1000. I hope your new year is
filled with many easy to define features and clearly labeled bags in the lab.

R. Joe

PS - It looks like Shovelbums fell short of my hoped for 1,000 by 2,000 but
we currently are at 750 subscribers since the list began in
April. Remember this list only grows by word of mouth so when you have a
chance, send out the attached sig file (with handy cut marks provided for
your cutting and pasting ease) to your friends, colleagues, bosses, and
professors. You can always join shovelbums in digest mode, or read on the
web only (which still allows you to post positions)


Let them know you heard about these on Shovelbums.
