Winning hire will guide legislative and regulatory strategy for the group, which is in the process of a major rebranding effort and move downtown. Ten years of issue-relevant experience in legislative affairs sought.

Friends of the World Food Program:
Georgetown University has a job that requires your sharp skill-set in outreach, administrative, academic, and international relations activities – Internship Abroad Coordinator for their School of Nursing and Health Studies. Pay range is $38k-$44k, but, more importantly, we think you would get a lot of interesting and useful experience out of this job.

They’ll start you in DC, but at some point thereafter you’ll be shipped to MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa if you’re tapped as Strategic Communications Consultant for SOS International. Secret clearances and knowledge of foreign affairs and national security policies and objectives, along with politico-military structures are required.

The Change Management Communications Manager for Freddie Mac works in support of the Director of Strategic Change Management in their Human Resources department. It may be a terrific job, but it any time we see change and human resources together, we get a bit of a chill.

Multiple still-fairly-fresh (career page updated May 13) opportunities with the International Justice Mission:

The progressive-leaning National Security Network is hiring Policy Director/Deputy Director to lead a small team, serve as senior strategist/writer/editor, and be one of the public faces for their efforts in defining, messaging, promoting and defending better national security policies.

On the heels of Thursday’s multiple openings with the Nature Conservancy and Sierra Club, we find a couple fresh gigs with the Natural Resources Defense Council below. Which is reminding us that we are due for another Environmental Special sometime soon:
The Capitol Letters Writing Center is looking for an Executive Director with teaching experience (preferably in a public school), or experience leading a community based non-profit, or program.

For Tuesday’s job-search resource, we bring you StartUpHire.com, a job resource for venture-backed start-up companies. As you might guess, there appears to be a preponderance of tech-oriented opportunities – but also some sales/marketing jobs that might be of interest – such as the Online Intern Marketing opening with New Customer Service Companies. We credit Kim Hart’s excellent Post Download column for the tip.
