[ShovelBums.Org] Field Technicians/Crew Chiefs - UTAH - Immediate Hire


William Self Associates, Inc. (WSA) is a well-respected and established
full service cultural resources management firm operating throughout the western
and southern U.S. WSA is currently looking for staff at all levels for
immediate hire in our Cedar City and Salt Lake City, Utah offices. As one of
the largest CRM-only firms in the U.S., WSA has a full schedule of fieldwork in
the Great Basin and Intermountain regions and we anticipate further growth in
these geographic areas. In anticipation of current (over 40 sq. miles of survey at present) and contracted, pending work, we are looking to bring on additional qualified and energetic staff in all areas of cultural resources management and historic preservation.

As the positions we will be filling occur in Utah, individuals with both
residence and experience in Utah will have first consideration. Field
Technicians should have a minimum of a B.A. degree and 3+ months of supervised
fieldwork; Crew Chiefs a minimum of a B.A. and one year supervisory experience. Project Managers/Directors must have an M.A. or Ph.D. in
Anthropology/Archaeology with at least three full years experience in Cultural
Resources Management at a senior level – managing large crews, directing field
survey and data recovery, conducting analysis, and authoring technical reports
on large projects. The successful senior candidates will posses demonstrated
abilities in project organization, staff management, client relations and
marketing, technical field capabilities in historic and prehistoric archaeology,
and strong writing and editing abilities under typically tight budgets and fast

Much of our work is conducted in remote areas throughout Utah where the ability to walk through rough terrain over long distances in adverse conditions may be required. Some work will necessitate camping, while lodging may be provided when and where feasible; work schedule is typically 8-10 hour days with 6 days off, but may vary. Perdiem is paid to field staff in all instances; company-provided transport is typically provided. WSA offers
very competitive salary, health and retirement benefits, and performance bonuses
for qualified full-time staff. In addition, we provide a stimulating and friendly work
environment where our staff is appreciated for being part of a successful team
of professionals who meet our clients needs in a safety-conscious environment.

For immediate consideration, please submit cover letter (indicating
availability), resume (with references) and salary history 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.
