VIRTUAL - Careers in Archaeology: Networking Event and Social Hour

February 28, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm CST

This is an online event Vancouver, CA Canada.

AIA Society: Iowa

Join members and guests of the Archaeological Institute of America’s Iowa Society for a virtual conversation via Zoom about how to land a job in or related to archaeology. We will discuss different specializations as well as the types of preparation each typically requires. Hop around to different breakout rooms to meet with specialists and archaeologists. Topics include:
— Iowa archaeology and cultural resource management (with State Archaeologist, Dr. John Doershuk!)
— Grad schools in archaeology: getting in and surviving
— Alternative careers associated with archaeology
— Publishing your first article and other early career advice
— Finding a dig/project
If you already have a career in the field and would be interested in hosting a breakout room or lending your professional advice, we strongly encourage you to attend! Those interested in hosting a room can contact the society president (
If you aren’t interested in a career in archaeology but just love the topic, we have a special room for you filled with trivia questions about world archaeology!
