Someone with a degree in Anthropology actually has many options.  You might be empolyed by a university, government agency, museum, park, historic site, or physical anthropology lab.  Take a look at the following links for ideas.

With an anthropology degree you can attain a job with the local government or local police as a CSI operative as a forensic analyst. However, you can also teach, participate in research, participate in film & documentaries.There are an abundance of jobs that require the skills of an anthropology major.

Well, aside from an anthropologist you would have to get creative with your knowledge in the degree.  I have a degree in sociology and anthropology and I am a teacher. Because it is such a well rounded degree (you will learn about sociology, mathmatics, biology, technology, economics and religion) you will be able to use this degree in many areas.  I always make sure I mention this during interviews...and have always gotten positive feedback. 

 Good Luck!

Try a different major. I have a BA in Anthropology, and I can't find work.

Honestly, the only job I have ever seen as somebody who bachelored in Anthropology was as a professor at a college.

However, if you were to get a bachelors in Psychology, you'd probably be better off.
