On Her Majesty’s service (and beyond): Anthropology’s contribution to an unconventional career

Mils Hills, Jeremy MacClancy (Editor)

Research output: Contribution to Book/ReportChapter

Abstract

This chapter sets out the author’s unconventional career track and attempts to explain the degree to which his qualifications in anthropology have assisted him in gaining unique experience and expertise. Along the way, the controversies that this has created or debates that are touched upon receive comment. Finally, the author identifies a number of clusters of practice that he feels represent critical advantages that an anthropological training has given him and that others may also find useful in considering how to present their transferable skills as they move from graduate to employed status.
