You have to prove yourself, so don’t be afraid to volunteer. I don’t know any paleontologist that didn’t. I volunteer and have gone to Mongolia, France, Argentina and Greenland to look for dinosaurs. I’ve been lucky and I’ve earned my stripes. Prospecting and looking for fossils is what I do because it’s what I love. When you find a fossil, no matter how insignificant, you’re the first person to ever see or touch it — and that’s pretty rewarding.
