Leader Communications would like to find a Web Developer to work with their spy-novel-sounding Information Resources Directorate – and to work on the so-cool Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency website. Needless to say, you’ll need to be able to attain a government security clearance to work here. Seriously – how great would it be to have Directorate and DARPA on the ol’ resume?

The Associate Director will represent E&Y on public policy issues before Congress and regulatory agencies, and also provide liaison with Democratic Congressional and Senatorial Campaign Committee activities and provide general political and fund-raising support for Democratic Members of Congress.

Election season always makes you think of Ross Perot, right? Well – it does for me. So does this Director of Communications opportunity with Perot Systems for their EDUCATE IT Outsourcing program.

How about Baltimore? You could be Communications Manager at Good Samaritan Hospital (search under “professional/management/physicians” category), developing and managing strategic hospital communications to employees, physicians, patients, and visitors. Besides the litany of communications competencies required, they helpfully inform us that “regular job attendance is an essential job function.”

Today's job-seekers resource: executive search giant Korn Ferry's Future Step employment site. Does not appear to have public affairs opportunities at this time - but we'll keep it on our watch list for now.
