eBay classifieds led us to this part-time Media Relations Coordinator spot with Linnie Carter & Associates. The operation is based in Middletown, Va. – but this would appear to be a work-from-home/contractor position – as do the many other opportunities listed here (scroll down) in research, social media, development, blogging, etc. - $20/hr seems to be the going rate.

Natural/eco-friendly consumer products company LYF seeks Associate Director of Communications. Thinking on feet and outside of box helpful for this Georgetown-located opportunity.

We don’t usually go out of our way to poke fun at typos in job-adverts – it’s not exactly as if we’re error-free here at DCPA+CJ – but we can’t resist noting poor little Lessburg, Va. – home of a surely-otherwise-great Communications Director opportunity with Kestler Financial Group.

Experience working in a newsroom environment and proven ability to meet deadlines a plus.

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it – and are also probably not well-suited for this Marketing Director opportunity with Rockville's History Associates.
