Into the Past

Your Tuesday programming is not based on a specific industry- or job-type. We've changed up our normal job-search methodology today eschewing the usual set of mainstay and lesser-known public affairs job resources, search engines and data-mining protocols.

Instead, we looked back at our postings from late June 2009, and searched for fresh jobs at companies & organizations listed there. We think this random-walk approach might unearth a higher proportion of opportunities that are not also found via the usual suspect job boards and search engines
which certainly can't hurt your chances when applying. Happy hunting!
