From CQ to the ACLU

The Center for Audit Quality would like to fill their Deputy Director, Communications position by November 1, so get that resume/cover letter together, and take the interview suit to the cleaners today. The new hire must have "excellent writing skills, including the ability to draft and edit statements, press releases, newsletters, prepared remarks, PowerPoint presentations, op-eds and Web site content."

The Senior Policy Analyst (note: pdf link) at the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards will research and analyze issues, prepare reports and position papers, and monitor legislative and regulatory activity. Knowledge of the financial planning/services industry is a plus.

Congressional Quarterly has a dozen openings for editorial, design, marketing and technical staff - and they also seek a new CFO to keep all these new hires from padding their expense accounts.

Dezenhall Communications is looking for entry- and mid-level PR professionals for their heart-of-downtown office. They claim to be the nation's leading high stakes communications consultancy. Other PR firms are welcome to challenge this claim by sending me their PR firm opportunities today.

Could you be the new Web Designer for the American Society of Landscape Architects? It's possible, if you possess "strong conceptual, design, and web communications skills," along with "high-level proficiency in Photoshop, Image Ready, Acrobat, Dreamweaver, Flash, and Fireworks, and the ability to hand-code HTML."

World at Work is a "global human resources association focused on compensation, benefits, work-life and integrated total rewards to attract, motivate and retain a talented workforce." So the benefits there are probably pretty great. They have openings for Executive Assistant, Media Relations Manager, and Regulatory Public Policy Manager in their D.C. office.

The National Apartment Association seeks Manager, State and Local Policy to monitor state and local legislative activity for the Southern part of the U.S. You'll also be a
"national strike team representative, " which sounds cool.

AARP is looking for a part-time Strategic Policy Advisor to work on Independent Living/Long-Term Care issues. The right person for the job will have a background in federal and state legislative processes relating to the needs and concerns of older Americans preferred and specific knowledge related to Long Term Care issues.

The Mortgage Bankers Association would like to "
secure the enactment of federal legislation benefiting the real estate finance industry" - the Associate Vice President of Legislative Affairs would be one of the team to make that happen. MBA is looking for an experienced hire: "a minimum of ten years state legislative or regulatory experience required, with background in real estate or mortgage finance preferred."

The ACLU's Chief Legislative and Policy Counsel needs an Assistant to research legislation and a whole lot more. This looks like a very fast-paced job for a bright young lefty.

The job search resource du jour is B.H. Griner and Associates, a Vienna-based recruitment firm. They do not specialize in public affairs jobs; their forte appears to be law firm and administrative jobs, instead.
