Like a high-profile challenge? A successful stint as the next Executive Director of the Democratic Party of Virginia will surely mark you as a shot-caller in Democratic circles – Richmond, Va. You can start your long trek to party power as an Intern for the group.

Or, maybe Admin Assistant for Directors of Technology & New Media with the Democratic National Committee in DC is better suited to your skills and/or geography

Seen those new Cricket Communications cell phone outlets around town? Here's your chance to be the first person to hold the title of Vice President of Government Affairs for the group.

It’s a little outside of our usual focus, but we think someone out there will be interested in eyeing this Director, Brand position for Capitol One.

US Committee on International Religious Freedom:
Koch Industries has a spot on their DC GR team for a Paralegal to handle a variety of legislative research and disclosure tasks. Experience with Lobbying Disclosure Act, Congressional Ethics Rules and/or Federal Campaign Finance Rules particularly sought.

Natural gas finder, extractor, processor & distributor Williams (NYSE: WMB) is seeking a Director, Government Affairs (search DC location or job ID 7249) to serve as their primary Federal lobbyist and DC representative.

National Parks Conservation Association:
Very fresh (circa 12/28) opportunities with the American Public University System in Manassas, Va.
Hospital Corporation of AmericaMarketing Manager (search job ID: 60475030) – Richmond, Va.

See if these terms + phrases grab you: wholly-owned subsidiary of European software giant – mass-market channels – traditional and social media tracking and reporting systems – Planet Vectorworks – internationally respected leader in CAD technology – all potentially part of your new life as Public Relations Specialist for Nemetschek, NA. Can also find here, and we throw in their LinkedIn profile for good measure. Columbia, MD

The job requires a winning attitude. The perks require a passport. So begins the breathless call for a probably-excellent and no-doubt-highly-sought Legislative Manager job for Continental Airlines.

What’s newly available with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in English-speaking capitals? We’re glad you asked – can also search here for these jobs or lots of Seattle-based opportunities:
RISE, as in Responsible Industry for a Sound Environment, seeks an Executive Director to manage this non-profit representing producers and suppliers of specialty pesticides and fertilizers.

Business Volunteers Unlimited MarylandCommunity Engagement Manager – Baltimore, MD

The Wilderness Society has a fresh opening for a Communications Manager. Advocacy-oriented communications experience and demonstrated success with traditional and new media desired. We also note their less-recent call for Senior Director, Constituency & Advocacy Giving.

Foreign Policy Initiative:
The Luther Rice Society strikes us as a good name for a secretive cabal operating in a Dan Brown novel – so we’re a little disappointed to see that they’re actually just a George Washington U. alumni giving/networking group, probably without plans for murderous faith-based skullduggery. Join in their likely not-shadowy non-conspiratorial activities as Assistant Director of Development (search posting # 0601613), $48k-$58k.

This is the first we’ve seen of consulting matchmaker site Pareto Central – and they're helping a small Northern Virginia law firm chase down some bright, hardworking trustworthy and reliable individual to work as Marketing/PR Assistant.

Visiting Nurses Associations of AmericaManager of Regulatory & Policy Analysis – minimum of 2-3 years health policy analysis experience required; Masters degree preferred – apply by Jan. 31

Vanderbilt University is hiring, and Isaacson-Miller is helping – preliminary information currently available – Nashville, TN:
American Pharmacists Association Foundation - Assistant Director of Development - Major gift experience and three-to-five years in fundraising, preferably healthcare-related, is required. The bidding for your services starts at $70k.
