It’s time for another one of our occasional investigative reports into popular job aggregators and job freshness. This CareerBuilder-found Public Relations Specialist post with the high-profile American Medical Association is right up your alley; and it has a pretty recent Mar. 1 posting date attached. You might also want to take note of the reference number 2682MH shown there. Of course, a smart-job searcher (that’s you!) would also want to go take a look on the AMA careers page, where searching under the DC location turns up a Nov. 2009 listing for a Public Information Officer, with the exact same job ID (2682MH) and job description attached. For all we know, this job could still be fully available – but we’re guessing you would rather have a decent idea about the position's original vintage. And, while we’re at it – kudos to AMA for being one of those good groups that puts a date on their listings. Thanks, Docs – we feel better already.
