On Monday, we spotlighted some recent opportunities in DC and beyond with Fleishman Hillard – our sources have since reminded us that they are still seeking experienced candidates for their fine Senior Vice President, Healthcare Communications opportunity. PR agency and Federal health agency and/or Capitol Hill experience preferred. More openings nationwide per their freshly-redesigned careers page.

We’re trying to resist adding event-planner as a regular category around here; but we’re not feeling especially strict today:

We’re suckers for (mostly disastrous) tales of blimps, airships, zeppelins, dirigibles – the Hindenburg, for cryin’ out loud, or the Shenandoah, LZ-104, the Akron, the Macon – so we’re naturally envious as all hell of the next Government Affairs/Senior Executive Assistant for Worldwide Aeros Corp. Some travel may be required to their (secretive, we imagine) headquarters in Los Angeles; presumably on this.
