Anyone know any good websites to keep an eye on when looking for jobs in the US, apart from ShovelBums.org and ArchaeologyFieldwork.com? Anything specific to the NW part of the country would be especially nice. I'm based out of Seattle, but I am restless enough these days to travel almost anywhere.

also try usajobs.gov for federal jobs.

as for your state/region, call the SHPO office and ask if they have any sort of approved contractor's list or if there is a state or regional professional organization that keeps such a list. then, cold-call (or really, cold-e-mail) those companies. It's how I've gotten some 90% of my archaeology jobs (I am in Texas, and though the SHPO doesn't keep a list, the "Council of Texas Archeologists" keeps a contract company list).

I second both of these suggestions. You can also just do some web searches for companies in your region and either see if they've posted any jobs or just contact them directly asking if they might have work. Local/regional people are always useful to companies that do a lot of small projects and small projects don't always get posted to the major websites because it's easier to just re-hire local people for short-term work.
