Aquariums, Zoos, Parks & Jobs

Episcopal Community Services of Maryland is seeking a Project Coordinator to be responsible for a wide range of program and outreach activities related to the Jericho Program. Baltimore location.

U.S. News & World Report is seeking a Manager of Business Development to shape and develop business strategy for their U.S. News Weekly digital magazine, the news/politics/opinion channel of

Staying on the media beat: The Hill has openings for Reporter and Blogger/Blog Editor types.

How about a Program Analyst post with the Treasury Department’s Office of Financial Stability? $102k-$133k – job ID 09-DO-503FXP. You have until July 20 to decide. Or, if this lesser-paying ($73k-$113k) version of the job is more to your skill set, you can take until July 31 to get your act, and application, together – job ID 09-DO-557FXP.

This is probably a challenging, rewarding, exciting and worthwhile job opportunity – but mainly, we just think it sounds fun: Program Assistant, Communications for the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. Bonus coverage: check out AZA’s nationwide registry of zoo and aquarium jobs.

And, in a similar vein – there’s certainly a lot to like about this Communications Manager position with the National Recreation & Park Association, including a $47-$53k salary and a pretty excellent sounding (and fast-vesting) benefit package. And yes, they also bring you parks and recreation job opportunities from around the country, as well.

Currently noted DC-based opportunities with the hip and high-profile One Campaign:
Ketchum PR seeks Interns for the DC office this Fall – get your resumes in by July 24.

The National Interest seeks a Editor/production staffer for magazine layout/design, copyediting, research and printing/production supervision. Significant knowledge of international affairs and foreign policy, with a leaning toward the realist school of thought, is desired.

The Women’s Media Foundation is seeking a highly committed, hands-on Executive Director to provide strategic leadership for the group. BSBSearch is leading the hunt.

It’s been a while since we’ve checked in on what’s available with the National Governor’s Association. Search here if direct links act sketchy (like governors themselves, of late):
We have no idea if the US Global Leadership Coalition is a major player in the foreign affairs space, and with some pool time and British Open viewing ahead of us this afternoon, we’re not going to take the time to find out. But, it surely sounds important enough based on the name alone, so you would probably enjoy passing out the business card that identifies you as Director of Government Relations for such a group.

BIPAC stresses the need to immediately hire a Manager, PAC Services. Qualified candidates will have 1-2 years experience in PAC management.

The surely-cheerful crew at the Marijuana Policy Project have a Membership Assistant internship opportunity that pays $9/hr. We’re not going to speculate on other benefits possibly offered. Fall Intern slots of the unpaid variety also available.

The career-placement folks at American University have been helpful in promoting our little enterprise; the least we can do is help publicize their search for an Assistant/Associate Professor, Public Administration & Policy. This is a full-time, tenure-line faculty position.

Wish you had joined the Peace Corps instead of trudging off to law school? You get a second chance – sort of – if you’re picked as Associate General Counsel of the Peace Corps. And, let’s be serious here – the $97k-$153k salary sure beats sleeping in a hut somewhere in Micronesia, right?* Job ID DPC9-A0110-JP, apply by Aug. 5.

No law degree, but still have Peace Corps dreams? You could also join the Corps as Regional Manager for their Chicago, IL outpost, responsible for all volunteer recruitment and nominations in that area. $80k-$129k – job ID DPC9-A0099-AJ – apply by July 21.

Small non-profit involved in women’s and international affairs seeks hard-working Associate Director with eye on big picture and attention to detail. Spanish and/or French language skills a must. $40k, but no health benefits.

American Express
is looking for a Senior Executive Assistant for their DC government affairs operation. Capitol Hill and PAC experience a plus.

And, to cap off your job-seek week, we bring you the career center of the American Association of Grant Professionals.

* actually, sleeping in a hut in Micronesia sounds like a blast.
