Red River Archaeology, LLC of Dallas, Texas is requesting résumés of temporary archaeology field workers for placement on an on-call list for future projects in Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Louisiana. Please be advised that we anticipate field projects for later in the summer and fall. Typical field projects may last a few days to several 10-day sessions and will primarily be Phase I shovel testing surveys with site recording. Local residents only in the TX/OK/KS/LA area are urged to apply. Requirement for consideration are: (1) a minimum of an undergraduate degree in Anthropology/Archaeology, (2) archaeology field school, and (3) one year (52 weeks) of field experience. Deadline for applications is set at midnight, 6 July, 2012.
The desired applicant should be in good health and fit for strenuous fieldwork tasks, knowledgeable of survey and excavation methodology, orienteering, map reading, site interpretation, record keeping, and prehistoric and historic artifact identification. Crew leadership and supervisory experience is a plus. We anticipate maintaining an on-call list of a minimum of four field technicians at all times. Red River Archaeology offers competitive wages, federal per diem rates, and single occupancy motel room on all projects.
Interested applicants should submit a cover letter with résumé not longer than two pages with "on-call list" in the subject line to:

The most important aspect of this list is that it is for one purpose only.: announcing jobs/non paying volunteer postings in the international CRM field at all levels; Field Tech, Professors, SHPO's, etc...  Caveat Emptor though my friends.  Not all jobs pay the same, nor is their treatment of employees the same - as the companies are checking your references, you should also check them out - make sure they pay fair wages, treat their employees professionally, and do quality work.  If you have at least a BA you deserve fair remuneration, so ask for it, and in turn you provide your employer with excellent service.   You ARE a trained professional, NOT a "shovelbum"  - the name is in jest - act professional, expect to be treated like one.
