How to Find a Job

What exactly can you do with a degree in public history? Where can you learn about job opportunities? Here are some sources that might help you answer that question. These sources are taken from History News: Technical Leaflet, a publication of the American Association for State and Local History. The Public History faculty at West Georgia also maintain a bulletin board with job announcements and opportunities and a list-serve for past and present public history students.
