They suggest you apply before Aug 1, 2009.

The Friends of Choice in Public Schools would like to add a Communications Manager to the class list. Skills they would like to see: rapid response, pitching, online campaign management, and ability to run media events.

New online communications-related opportunities with the Pew Environment Group:
The Foundation for the Defense of Democracies seeks Technology & Communications Manager to manage website, assist the communications department, and help with broad technology issues. Not sure if their “posting end date: July 31” is their apply-by deadline – buy why not play it safe and get your resume into them sooner rather than later. Can also search here.

The National Kidney Foundation’s Division Communications Manager handles communications activities surrounding special events. Demonstrated success in non-profit communications, marketing, community relations is desired

An oddly compelling place to work” – The Princeton Review makes that unique boast. We think you should investigate for yourself as a Marketing Manager hire, working to swell the rolls of nervous students looking for help with their SAT, GRE, etc.

The American Councils for International Education has an entry-level Program Assistant opportunity supporting their Open World Program. Primary responsibilities involve administrative tasks supporting professional exchange programs for a variety of Eurasian countries.

We checked – this data-entry-heavy part-time Research Assistant job with ICF International can also be found via their careers page. But the Post link is just soooo much easier. Healthcare-related.

Trust us – do not make any Bushwood jokes/references in your application letter, interview or even first year on the job as Associate Editor & Communications Manager with the Club Managers Association of America. $40k-$42k.

The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center at the University of Maryland is looking for a Communications Manager. Five-plus years direct experience in media relations and/or public relations required.

Health Affairs, the self-described nation’s leading peer-reviewed health policy journal is published by Project HOPE – the group that will be paying your salary as Health Affairs Communications Manager. Responsibilities include press releases, digest, summaries, and more.

Is Email Marketing Manager for highly-regarded Discovery Communications really a public affairs/communications job? Borderline, we suppose – but we hope it’s useful for some of our devoted readership. Can also search here if link is fussy.

Your job-search resource of the day - lots and lots of green/progressive jobs and intern opportunities available via Idealist. They will make you register to see more than a couple jobs at a time, but it free and not a spam-generator (at least in my experience).
