Heavy Flak

We are going to experiment with bringing you industry-focused info on Tuesdays. For this week’s edition, we’ve scoured the websites of DC-area public relations firms. What follows is an alphabetical links list of flak-industry career pages, with brief descriptions of what (if anything) is available. Note: in many cases, our link will be to a company's main career/employment page; your usual best course of action from there is to search for DC-area opportunities.

We welcome any additional content from PR-firm HR folks at any time, and plan to run another PR-specific listing next month on Feb. 3.
