AccentureGovernment Relations Manager, Defense & Intelligence – 5+ years Cap Hill/lobbying experience, including some defense/intel-related work – can also search here, using job # 00080783

An object lesson in CareerBuilder (and other job-sites) and job-freshness:
  • Walgreens Director of Federal Government Relations – CareerBuilder puts an Oct. 8 date on this listing – note Req ID 000232
  • Search the same job via the Walgreens Corporate site (enter job 000232 or DC location) and you’ll see a Sept. 3 birthday for this opportunity. It may or may not still be worth sending Walgreens your CV – but you should know that CB, Monster, the Washington Post and other sites recycle older postings and put new dates on them. Maybe we're just peeved that we missed this job the first time around.
CitigroupVice President, State & Local Government Relations (search job # 09020183 or DC location) – law degree & abstract thinking ability are both on Citi’s wish list.

The AFL-CIO Center for Green Jobs is understandably happy about $4 billion allotted for Federal job creation funding – and you should be happy to take them up on their offer to fund you to the tune of $99k per annum as a Senior Clean Energy Policy Analyst.

We would normally save this for a far-flung-Friday listing, but we would hate to see your resume at the back of the line for the Director of Government Affairs opportunity with the San Diego Association of Realtors.

Closer to home, we bring you this media-oriented Senior Public Affairs Associate job at the neat-looking headquarters of the National Association of Realtors.

Fort-Belvoir-located and military-related operation has an opening for an Editorial Assistant. Two-to-three years related experience, and InDesign skills are particularly valued. $33k-$40k. Administaff is in charge of the search.

Some assasination work probably also required.

The Whitaker Group – self-anointed premier strategic consulting firm in the US committed to creating sustainable prosperity in Africa – has a probably-swell opportunity for an External Affairs Associate. La compétence dans français écrit/parlé aiderait votre cause.

Service Employees International UnionProgram Manager for Policies & Ethics Standards –assists in administering and implementing all aspects of the SEIU Policies on Ethics and Standards – a one year term-limited position – apply by Oct. 31

* They don't seem so secretive to you? That's just what they want you to think. We've said too much already.
