College does not prepare you for a career in cultural resource management archaeology

That’s not surprising because universities were not designed to teach workplace skills

After earning my undergraduate degree, I was shocked to discover that most of what I learned in college was of little use as a cultural resource management archaeologist. All those papers I’d written, articles I’d read, and hours I spent in the classroom didn’t matter to CRM company hiring managers. They wanted to know Who I Was, What I’d Done, and Who I Knew before they’d even consider hiring me.

More than ten years later, after working as a consulting archaeologist across the United States, I realized other budding archaeos still had the same problem converting a college degree into gainful employment. Colleges are designed to teach you how to learn, not tell you what you need to learn. That’s why I started Succinct Research— a company dedicated to helping cultural resource management and historic preservation professionals learn the needed to forge a successful career.

Through our insightful blog, groundbreaking eBooks, and contributions to the CRM Archaeology Podcast, Succinct Research is dedicated to helping young CRMers learn what they never learned in college.
