Something-extra Saturday

We've neglected the Saturday extra coverage for a while - but, we figure it wouldn't be Jobstoberfest without a little something extra to get you through your rainy/chilly weekend. We've got plenty for you to chew on - including new jobs (scroll down).

First off - we just got notice of 90 USAID opportunities in Afghanistan through Management Systems International - we'll reference this again on Monday, but we figured some of you might want to get a jump on this. Prior field-based international development experience required; prior conflict zone experience strongly preferred.

The Wednesday PR jobs special brought us out busiest-traffic day ever. We are a little embarrassed to report that it was our fourth PR special, not number III, and we've sheepishly changed the Roman numerals there. In light of the keen interest in that area, we've assembled an addendum of local public relations/communications without current opportunities, but with resume submission info available:
Now, the new (or presumed-new) stuff - a selection of slightly-off our usual beat, with an emphasis on social media/online, marketing-related, graphic design, admin and other maybe-interesting opportunities:

Finally - here's a tip if you're feeling stuck, or just want to bring a little more serendipity to your search. For our first anniversary feature, we went back and looked at jobs we had listed a year earlier - and we found a few nice new opportunities. Accordingly, we suggest picking a random post of two from the past, using a date you favor, or a title that jumps out at you - and search for new gigs at the companies in that post. A random walk down job-search street; that's what you need.
