High Voltage

We close your work (or wish-you-were-working) week with a selection that, in many cases, covet energetic, speedy, well-caffeinated and even sugar-seeking types.

Microsoft may have found their Senate-focused lobbyist referenced here – they are still looking for a Federal Lobbyist/ Federal Government Affairs Manager (search DC location or job code 253775) colleague to work the House side. Extensive legislative/Hill experience is desired, of course.

The Public Justice Foundation seeks a Director of Development (note: pdf link) to plan and direct their fundraising efforts. Major gift experience, top-notch writing skills, and a personality that is warm yet energetic are among their wants. They also seek law students to serve as summer Interns (pdf again) in their DC and Oakland offices.

An international company with more than 24,000 employees in nearly 100 countries, seeks a Director of Corporate Communications for its DC office. They are aided in their search by enthusiastic-looking crew at Volt Services Group – perhaps they’ve thrown back a few Volt energy drinks.

Serco seeks a Director of Public Policy Research & Communications for their Serco Institute operation. Successful candidate will oversee research regarding the design of public service markets, the conduct of competitive procurements, and the management of contracts regarding the provision of public services by private and voluntary sector organizations.

Congressional Quarterly
would like to find an Associate Editor for CQ Healthbeat. They're looking for folks with hustle: speed, accuracy, and strong competitive instincts essential. Other editorial and admin opportunities also available, including part-time HR work.

The National Confectioners Association will pay their temporary Administrative Assistant/Coordinator $20/hour and all the candy you can eat (really!) in a 40 hour work week. Job runs through June 30.

The Safadi Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to Lebanon's development. They’re hoping to bring aboard a part-time Intern to assist with administration, grant-writing and event coordination.

Or perhaps you would rather be a Communication Intern for AMIDEAST – tracking news, developments in international education, US Executive branch policy and Congressional hearings, along with other research and admin duties.

The US Committee on International Religious Freedom is also looking for intern help this summer. Applications due Apr. 1 for:
Get your CV into the folks at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission by Apr. 6 for their Protocol Specialist opportunity. You’ll work in their Office of Congressional Affairs, and assist with events, meetings, and visits of dignitaries hosted by the Commission, in addition to admin work for the Director of Protocol. Pay range: $41k-$79k, job ID OCA-2009-0003.

Lobbying/GR outfit Rapoza Associates is seeking an experienced Community Development Professional to work with the firm’s nonprofit/philanthropic clients on housing and community development policy, program development and lobbying. Excellent writing and research skills a must.

SMI Inc. – a government relations and solutions firm with a focus on national security, energy, and research and development – looking for a Junior Associate with a strong-work-ethic/entrepreneurial bent. Duties include supporting senior staff on scheduling and logistics, industry, legislative and policy research, and business development. Congressional/association experience desirable, but they’ll consider resumes without it.

The Project Management Institute would like to add a Government Relations Specialist to the org chart. Winning hire will advocate to help grow PMI’s influence in the government/federal sector. They’re looking for at least five years of experience in GR, public affairs, or advocacy with success in broadening markets; research and development; and relationship building. Perhaps some of you will be more interested in Vice President, Brand Management or Corporate Relations Specialist postings back at the Newton Square, PA headquarters.

And finally, on this fired-up Friday – the title sounds doubly intense: Action Office, Director’s Action Group with SAIC - providing Congressional liaison, public affairs support, and collaboration with an alphabet soup of government agencies to ensure effective communication and outreach. Ironically, I found it through the not-so-intense-sounding Jobs for Geeks.
