Fab Four

For our change-of-pace Saturday programming – we bring you some errata and offbeat listings in public relations, media relations, communications and the like – some from outside the Washington, D.C. area.

Always wanted to work in sports/athletic media relations? Perhaps the Assistant Director for Athletics Media Relations position with Longwood University (Farmville, Va.) is your chance to break into the business. Experience with StatCrew statistics software is among their wants.

Sports Illustrated GroupPublicist – New York – alternate search, use job ID 110988BR – bonus pre-interview tip: read this terrific book.

Join the fab four: Tom, Abe, George & Teddy. Deadline approaching fast for invitation-only tryouts for the Racing Presidents with the Washington Nationals will be held next Sunday, Feb. 15, so get the application in today.

The Albert Einstein College of Medicine at Yeshiva University (the Bronx, NY) has openings for Media Relations Manager and Media Relation Specialist. These jobs do not, however, appear to be especially fresh (Nov. & Dec.) – but who knows?

Those seeking a sunnier climate and the expatriate lifestyle might be interested in Media Relations Specialist, Crisis Communications and Public Relations Consultant positions with Saudi Aramco. read a brief history of Aramco here. I am not 100% certain about the expatriate bit – perhaps there is some possibility these could be US (Texas) based jobs. Educate yourself a bit today and read this history of Aramco.

Public Relations Intern opportunity with new media conglomerate InterActive Corp., in White Plains, NY – where your work will involve media relations, networking and blogging are part of the portfolio for their Mindspark Division for such worthy heavyweight products as: Zwinky™ – Zwinky CutiesVimeoIWON® – GirlsenseGreenLife123Excite® – Webfetti™ – My Fun Cards™ – SmileyCentral® – Cursor Mania™ – Popular Screensavers™ and Kazulah. That sounds much more worthwhile and rewarding than some boring old Internship with Amnesty International or something similar with Human Rights Watch, right?

Need some excitement in your life? Jobs with “exciting” in their descriptions:
