How do I find a job R. Joe?
Well if you are slacker you can view the current jobs here (note that link brings you off site. My mailing list host changed settings and messed up my ability to have those posted here, I am working on a fix).
BUT! You really should join the ShovelBums mailing list to be notified immediately by email when a job comes out. Besides the immediacy of email, the emails you receive have full contact information in them, when the job postings that are archived online they have their email addresses obfuscated for security. So show your future employer you are smart and join the email list, it is relatively low volume and you can choose a digest mode. But it really is the smart way to keep current on jobs.

Why the name ShovelBums? It sounds pejorative.
To the best of my knowledge my mom, who is quite clever, came up with the term when I was describing to her what it was like being on the road doing "contract" archaeology back in the day. The term "can" be pejorative if used by someone who is not an archaeologist, but within the field it is a term used to signify that mutual understanding that you each know what it is like to live on the road having to do the highest quality work, in the least amount of time, under arduous conditions. You can read more about the origins of the word here. Errata ShovelBums in undergoing some intermittent upgrades. Sorry if you run into any glitches. If you do. Feel free to drop me a not using the contact form (it is located in the left hand column at the bottom).
