The National Association for the Practice of Anthropology states that "...practicing anthropologists are individuals who apply their specialized knowledge to problem solving. They work in a variety of settings including local, state and federal governments, business and industrial firms, social service, health, and economic development organizations, consulting firms, and colleges and universities."

For those of you interested in moving outside a strictly academic setting, Applied Anthropology might be a good choice. Please check the resources I've listed here to get you started.
