You'll Shill the Electric Car

Put that Master of Library Science degree to work as Research Specialist for the Association of Manufacturing Technology. Tysons Corner location.

Maybe the public affairs thing isn’t working out for you. You’ve come to loathe the weekly legislative update meeting, or perhaps you no longer really care all that much about NAFTA, cap-and-trade, the future of the Osprey (bird or aircraft) or whatever they’re paying you to flack for. How about signing on as Regional Sales Manager with the hipsters at electo-car pioneer Tesla Motors, instead. I am guessing there is probably going to be significant a media/outreach/advocacy component to the DC position – so this may be well-suited to one of you PR or GR types.

The Office of Compliance advances safety, health, and workplace rights in Congress and the legislative branch. They’re putting out the call for a Deputy Executive Director for House-side activities. Pay is in the healthy $120k-$161k range, job ID OOC0901, apply by Apr. 16.

The Aerospace Industries Association would like to hire a recent grad proficient in HTML, CSS, PHP, XML, XSL, ColdFusion, and DreamWeaver as their next Web Manager. They are also in the market for a Membership Intern for this summer.

Join the revolution! Or maybe just join the Revolution Media Group, as their Office Manager. It likely pays better than your average upheaval of established order, anyhow.

– an independently-managed outpost in the Fleishman-Hillard empire – is seeking an Account Director, Infrastructure Public Affairs to helm communications efforts for a multi-year project. Position requires a unique blend of media/political savvy and engineering/infrastructure knowledge – and it’ll probably be a lot of fun watching whatever it is actually get built.

Accounting software developer (Quicken & Turbotax, for example) Intuit wants to put a Senior Public Policy Manager and Counsel on the books. JD and federal government legislative/regulatory experience with technology policy and financial services issues should be prominent on your CV. Did you know that Intuit’s getting into the web hosting biz, as well?

The Navy is looking for a new shipmate – ok, deskmate – in the Norfolk area: Public Affairs Officer – $56k-$77k – job ID EA9-1035-02-MJ251481-CE – apply by Apr. 17.

Here’s the first Fall 2009 intern opportunity to cross our path: Public Affairs InternFederal Reserve Bank of Richmond – Baltimore location – $18-$26/hr – apply by Apr. 30. You have until 5:00 pm on Apr. 17 to get your resume in for the similar Summer 2009 opportunity in Baltimore – or Apr. 24 for the Richmond-based Communications Intern, Community Affairs for this summer. Hunt for them here, if direct links don’t hold up.

The FAIR Fund is a DC-based nonprofit with the laudable aim of preventing sexual violence and human trafficking in the lives of young people. Check out their Program Advocate and Intern (scroll down) opportunities – they also list a Development & Outreach Officer job there, but you might wish to note that it’s been posted since late January.

Do you have at least 14 years of experience in managing large-scale public relations, communication, marketing, or behavior change programs?

This alternate listing suggests a $100k+ salary level for the position.
