 Full CV on LinkedIn: 
I am an experienced archaeological field technician seeking (ideally) permanent, full-time employment in cultural resource management. My archaeological experience includes pedestrian survey, excavation and artifact analysis and curation in the Mid-Atlantic region and Ohio. I am currently completing a master's thesis in applied archaeology based on analysis of 19th century ceramic artifacts. Additionally, I enjoy the mental and physical challenges of fieldwork and get great satisfaction out of seeing a project to completion. I have strong writing skills and am eager for the opportunity to use and further develop my skill set.
