We found a few recent & interesting (but not local) opportunities by going to apply now and then using the keyword public affairs at the frustrating-to-us jobs site at Pfizer. Job #s also listed:

The Batter Up Foundation works to revive interest in youth/high-school baseball in DC and to improve the development of local players, especially minorities, with the goal of increasing college opportunities (have you seen a college baseball team picture lately? – looks like a hockey team). Get on their roster as a part-time Grants Coordinator – modest stipend plus commission offered.

The Coalition Against Bigger Trucks (it’s exactly what it sounds like) seeks Field Director. Alexandria-based, but extensive travel required.

WalgreensStrategic Government Relations Leader – JD or Master's degree desired; minimum of 10 years experience in federal government relations including Capitol Hill work; health care related committee experience is preferred, along with working knowledge of pharmacy issues, Medicaid, Medicare, etc.

These appear to be among the latest offerings from Ketchum PR:
The American Society of Nephrology — dedicated to the study & treatment of kidney disease—seeks a Policy Analyst to administer legislative and advocacy program focused on kidney disease research and related issues.

We have some interesting items to consider from the Council on Foundations:
  • This Advocacy Coordinator position – which, oddly enough, does not yet show up on their own jobs @ COF page (click on jobs at the council tab)
  • Under the all jobs tab at their foundation jobs board, you’ll find fundraising, grant-making, program & other jobs like this Policy & Research Associate position with the Hunt Alternatives Fund
  • Interested in international relief work? COF’s comprehensive Haiti Disaster Response section provides a lot of information on foundation, NGO and corporate support/grantmaking efforts in support of Haitian relief – it might also provide you with some organizations to target for your own job search efforts. And, don’t forget our recent Relief/Humanitarian jobs special!
Off the public affairs beat, but high-profile enough to rate a mention here – search by DC location of Tesla Motors, and you’ll find two Sales Advisor and one Store Coordinator position.

International Association of Fire ChiefsWeb & Graphic Design Coordinator

Fannie Mae – can also search here, using job # noted:
International law firm Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP is seeking a Marketing Coordinator to support their Litigation Business Development team. Minimum of 2 years in marketing, communications or related field required, along with experience using databases to support business development activities.

Suburban Hospital in Bethesda, MD offers this comparatively terse call for a Public Relations Coordinator – you can see that actual title by searching here, under administrative support.

Perfect for Alabama Congressional office-types or anyone else who wants to decamp to the Heart of Dixie: University of Alabama-BirminghamDirector of Media Relations (search using keyword 12997BR) – $65k-$101k

The Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards will pay you $67k-$70k as their Online Media Coordinator; maybe they’ll even give you some sound advice as to what do with that windfall.

We’re usually hateful towards slow-loading, flash-enhanced homepages – but we like the subway-themed site (really – spend a few minutes poking around; it’s nicely done) of New York ad agency Gotham Inc. Here’s a Copywriter gig there – great taste in design and an interest in fashion/related fields are musts.

Law Enforcement Against Prohibition seeks Media Relations Intern. Prohibition of what? – yes, it’s just what you think it is.

It’s probably been bounced all over the twittersphere already, but maybe one or two of you don’t know that the DNC/Organizing for America is seeking a Social Networks Manager – a job we’ve seen inelegantly referred to as Twitterer for Pres. Obama by a handful of media outlets.

For your Monday resource - we've previously referenced the prolific and progressive-leaning job board from Idealist - but you might not be aware of these additional Idealist resources:
