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 and Academia field at all levels; Field Tech, Professors, SHPO�'s, etc...

Caveat Emptor though my friends.  Not all jobs pay the same, nor is the 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. In turn you provide your employer with excellent service.   You ARE a trained professional, NOT a "bum". The name ShovelBums came from a joke my mom made. And ShovelBums is not pejorative when used between peers, it is a right of passage any modern archaeologist worth their salt has to work in at some point to be well rounded. 

Act professional and expect to be treated like one.

ShovelBums hiring rule #1.  Always call 2-3 references before taking on a crew member!

ShovelBums rule #2 - If you have found a job through ShovelBums, you owe me a beer. If our paths don't cross, you can use the link on ShovelBums to buy me one ;-)
