Philadelphia, Freedom

I’ll give the folks at the Tax Foundation some credit for a sense of humor: Intern applications for Summer ‘09 are due on April 15. FYI, they’ll be announcing this year’s Tax Freedom Day on March 30.

Speaking of freedom – Freedom House seeks a Senior Program Officer to manage the start-up and implementation of its new International Religious Freedom Consortium. Experience in international religious freedom and/or human rights and a Master or Law degree is preferred, along with contacts with both secular and faith-based groups working on the issue.

Here’s a fairly recent (posted Mar. 13) Intern, Corporate Communications posting with AOL. Search here, via Corp. Communications/Govt. Affairs category or req # 111432BR, if direct link proves unsatisfactory. Dulles-area location.

Also from the Time-Warner empire: News Assistant, Live Production for CNN in their DC bureau. Or search DC location or req. ID 111690BR.

How about an entry-level opportunity with O’Keeffe & Co? Get your foot in the door as a Marketing & Public Relations Extern.

The Mercatus Center at George Mason University (along with its Institute for Humane Studies sibling) seek a Director of Foundations Strategy to join their fast-paced development team. Free parking and tuition covered for one GMU course per semester are part of the compensation package.

The American Institute for Architects is measuring for a new addition – a Manager, State Issues & Programs to assist state affiliates with their advocacy efforts, and much much much (see their 966 word-count job description) more. Also available from AIA: Managing Editor, Member Communications

The Association for Advanced Underwriting (life insurance) seeks Political Fundraiser to manage all aspects their political giving program and PAC. At least 5 years of combined experience as an association PAC Manager and/or Finance Director of political campaigns would be ideal.

They don’t wish to be identified, but a dynamic bipartisan lobbying and public affairs group want to get a motivated Legislative & Regulatory Research Assistant on the job pronto. Work appears focused on energy/environment issues.

Why do we bring you Ocwen Financial's call for a Senior Vice President, Business Development & Government Relations, especially given that they don’t mention DC offices? Perhaps one of you folks out there is the perfect fit to build industry partnerships with contacts at investment banks/GSEs, develop close working relationships with key congressional offices as well as state and local, and lead government relations and lobbying at all levels of government. You can also look here if previous link proves balky.

The Physician Assistant Education Association is accepting applications until Mar. 28 (unless they can’t find anyone they like) for their Government Affairs Director position. Pay level starts at $60k, but is adjustable for experience. Old Town Alexandria location.

We had to hunt around like crazy to find a link on the St. Joseph’s University website to find their HR page just to give you a chance to apply for their Assistant Vice President for Government & Community Relations (go to employment, then full-time positions). Whether the $90k-$95k salary is sufficient to make the move to Philly is up to you. Here’s an alternate link, if you can’t hunt it down using the instructions above.
