March marks the height of summer internship application deadline season – and, going forward, we’re not going to reference every intern opportunity closing in March. Scroll back to find recently-added intern offerings closing soon, and/or visit one of our late-January internship specials:

The National Governor’s Association is in search of a Policy Analyst with expertise in the areas of environmental cleanup of federal facilities and military affairs. The analyst will support efforts related to environmental cleanup of federal facilities, Base Realignment and Closure, and military affairs. Knowledge of federal facility cleanup operations and experience with state-level policy are among desired experience. Search here if previous link is unresponsive (and for HR Intern and Education Intern slots).

LGOR*: Online Content Manager gig with the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists (Chicago-based). Regular readers have probably figured out that we’re suckers for neat-sounding cold-war/spy/atomic/intrigue-laden jobs.

Staying closer to home on the A-bomb beat – The Nonproliferation Policy Education Center is currently seeking an Administrative Intern – $10/hr. paycheck, and once again: pretty good on the old resume, we’d think. Plus, the logo on their website gives us the impression that some of the folks there have a nice sense of humor.

Use job req number 2268 to find the Outreach Coordinator job with Children's Hospital. Educational background in public affairs or health-related field preferred, along with 3-4 years of progressively responsible experience.

The US Mint is looking to circulate a new Deputy Director, Office of Legislative & Intergovernmental Affairs to represent and advocate their views with strength, clarity, and measurable success. For all this, they’ll pay the winning hire $102k-$133k in fresh-of-the-presses Jacksons and Grants. Job ID 09-USMINT-119P; apply by Mar. 6.

The International Partnership for Microbicides is a global, nonprofit organization created to speed development of new women-initiated products that prevent HIV infection and make them available to women in developing countries. They could use a new Receptionist at their Silver Spring, Md. location.

The Academy for Educational Development have one of those internationalist- (and redundant-) sounding jobs available – Program Officer, Open World Program – helping manage small delegations of emerging leaders from Eurasia who are here to see American style democracy in action. Familiarity with Eurasian culture ire required; Russian language skills preferred. AED appears to have a plenty of other opportunities available in varied subject areas and experience levels.

Given the drumbeat of headlines about financial chicanery and mismanagement, I would think the Intern, External Relations (just scroll down) opportunity with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board would be pretty darn interesting.

People seem to like Austin, TX. If you’re one such fan, perhaps the Public Affairs Representative position with the University of Texas would be just the thing for you. You’ll promote faculty experts, write for a variety of UT magazines, newsletter and websites, coordinate social media activities, and live the college-town lifestyle, we (jealously) suppose.

A couple opportunities** with PBSjust view all positions here if these https links prove squirrely:
DCPA+CJ poked around the George Washington University careers website in search of a direct link to info on this Writer job – duties include producing/editing articles for GW publications; magazines, newsletters and other misc. outlets. While our efforts to confirm that job failed, we did hunt down a Coordinator, Medical Center Communications & Marketing (search Administrative/Professional category, or use job posting number 0601053) opportunity, where you’ll work on media relations, PR and publications-related tasks.

The USO is seeking a Communications Specialist to respond to media inquiries, pitch USO stories/interviews, develop media contacts, and produce press releases/articles/etc. They also have a Writer position available.

Today’s job-gatherers resource: a pair of articles by the Sarah Needleman of the Wall Street Journal: Experts Weigh in on Job Boards and It Isn’t Always a Job Behind that Posting

* Looks Great on Resume
** This post has been edited - two other opportunities referenced earlier were apparently removed by PBS, and we have removed them, as well.
