Do you have the Z-Factor? That's what marketing communications firm zcomm is looking for in prospective Senior Account Manger/Director, Senior Associate New Media Services, and Intern hires. For what it's worth, I think the Z-Factor must have something to do with Jim Zorn.

Hubby, wifey, significant other or better half headed down to grad school at UVa? The University might have part time/administrative jobs available here. Yeah - they probably sent information about these opportunities with the acceptance letter, but did your s.o. actually share it with you? If s/he didn't, maybe you ought to ask Carolyn what it all means.

Defending Liberty, Pursuing Justice - and getting paid for it? Sweet! The American Bar Association has a plethora of opportunities in Washington, Chicago and elsewhere. The Manager, Presidential Communications, Media Relations and Communication Services job in Washington looks like the most communications-oriented among the bunch. Hey kids: D.C. internships are also available.

Search giant Korn Ferry has the net cast for a Director of Environmental and Regulatory Affairs for the Renewable Fuels Association. In particular, they are looking for
someone out there well-versed in "the substantive policy issues associated with the ethanol industry as well as cellulosic technology."

Do you have expertise in U.S.-Asian relations, with an emphasis on South Korean foreign policy? If yes, the Heritage Foundation will consider you for their Senior Analyst - U.S./Asian Relations post.

Grassroots and PAC solutions provider Democracy Data has an opportunity for someone looking for experience in political action committee operations - a PAC Assistant post awaits a motivated soul willing to take on clerical/administrative tasks.

Dueling acronyms: Today's job search resource features jobs in the field of corporate social responsibility (CSR) from Business for Social Responsibility (BSR).
