We are seeing a lot more good jobs posted at LinkedIn – like this Director of Public Affairs listing with the Racepoint Group. However, their LinkedIn Exclusive — this job is available only on LinkedIn boast seems a little overblown, since we can also easily find the job directly w/ Racepoint, along with this Senior Account Executive slot.

The US Commission on International Religious Freedom monitors and helps protect/advance freedom of thought, conscience, religion and belief around the world. We surely want to help them find a capable new Executive Director (note: pdf link) with the experience and commitment needed lead these important efforts – we hope you will, too.

Here’s a trio of newly-available opportunities with Georgetown University:
Applied Materials – global leader in nanomanufacturing technology – and your possible next employer as their Government Affairs Manager (search job # 0900784) if you possess Capital Hill experience with direct responsibilities for energy and/or environment issues and strong knowledge of the political process and the interaction of business and public policy

Moiré Marketing Partners, a DC-based branding/marcom cabal, seeks Business Development pro with at least 10 years business development experience, including 7 years experience in an agency environment.

Car buff with a minimum of 3 years government affairs? The Specialty Equipment Market Association wants to talk to you about their Government & Public Affairs Manager slot, where you’ll help harness grassroots horsepower of the auto enthusiast community and work on direct advocacy efforts. We be the tradeshows are fun, too.

A couple of relevant GR openings with the Mortgage Bankers Association:
Perfect for the web-savvy in Western Prince William County or thereabouts: Interactive Technology Manager for the American Public University System in Manassas, Va.

Washington Parks & People is looking for a Director of Development to expand their fundraising program and garner support from foundations, government agencies, major donors, institutions, businesses, etc.

Surely one of you would like to decamp to Hong Kong or Shanghai as Director of Development (scroll down) for the Johns Hopkins-Nanjing Center for Chinese & American Studies. Sounds awesome. Really.

Clear Channel is seeking a Roanoke, Va.-based Promotions Director position to manage promo events/activities and web-related work. They’ve also got a Promotions Director gig for you with Tampa’s Hip-Hop & R&B leaders, WBTP - The Beat!, if that's your thing.

The latest in dense, wordy, but perhaps worthwhile postings from our good friends at the World Bank:
The Solar Electric Power Association looks to fill admin slots for Administrative Associate, Finance & Operations and Executive Associate (scroll down).

The Transportation Equity Network would like resumes by July 15 from individuals interested in helping them increase public involvement in transit plans and related jobs to minority, women and low-income segments – in particular, for:
The Partnership for 21st Century Skills a non-profit education advocacy organization, is offering $95k-$100k for a 4/5 days a week (we bet it's usually 5) engagement as their National Policy Director. Extensive experience working with federal and state policymakers is, quite naturally, expected. Apply by July 15.

Our job-search tool of the day: we referenced the increasingly-useful LinkedIn jobs resource above. And, if you're new to (or recently forced back into) the job-search game, and don't have a LinkedIn account - well, you need one.

Where's the Homewood job?? I can't find it on the listings.


Gordon Barnes said...

The Homewood bit in the title is a reference to Homewood main campus of Johns Hopkins U. - but the actual Hopkins-related job is in Hong Kong (or Shanghai) - hence "Homewood to Hong Kong"

Hope that clears it up.
