Sturgis or Daytona

Bank of America will empty their vaults for the right Regional Lobbyist Manager/Technical Loss Mitigation Review & Coordination Manager. Selected applicant will be responsible for a broad range of federal and state legislative and regulatory activity related to the mortgage servicing industry. They’re looking for 15+ years of substantial background in the banking, finance, or mortgage banking fields and political fields. You may wish to note language at the bottom of description indicating that job was apparently posted to the BOA site on Nov. 7, and will be un-posted on Friday, Nov. 14 – which qualifies as your deadline, I guess.

Dow Jones Newswires has the early call out for a DC-based Intern to work on corporate/regulatory news next summer. Note: search under posted link for Washington, DC location. It appears this position is not posted under the “internships” link.

They have listings for a Vice President/Dir. of Government Relations (as well as a “Sr.” version of the same) in their mCapitol Management subsidiary. If you can hunt through that first link to search for DC-based postings – and if you can develop business opportunities and expand their government relations/contracting reach – you’re their man or gal. DC-based Admin. Asst., Asset Project Manager, and Principal Client Services Manager opportunities also available.

I am not exactly sure what the acronyms in the BPR, Public Affairs SME position with Northrop/Grumman in Norfolk, Va. stand for. Primary responsibilities include drafting a range of articles, fact sheets, bimonthly newsletter, pamphlets, brochures, and other public affairs documents, and in particular authoring 50-100 articles annually for posting to their public access website – along with podcasting and other online management duties. Some guesses: BPRSME – and more SME.

Are you pro-dissent? Then perhaps you would like to serve as a Consultant to the Defending Dissent Foundation redesign their website and learn to use DreamWeaver. These folks were apparently founded in 1960 as the National Committee to Abolish HUAC.
