Now Playing: Indiana Jones & the Center for Urologic History

Indiana Jones: Too bad the Hovitos don't know you the way I do, Belloq.
Belloq: Yes, too bad. You could warn them... if only you spoke Hovitos!

And it looks like you could have a better shot at this Managing Director, Government Relations position with an unknown company somehow involved in off-highway diesel engine products & applications if you possessed a strong knowledge of German. We can’t help Dr. Jones, but we can suggest the top-notch and reasonably-priced German language instruction at the Goethe Institute, kicking off on June 7. Search managed by the intimidating-sounding Malace & Associates.

So, with that – we return with some great public affairs jobs and internships, including a lot of awesome directly-submitted opportunities. HR folks: send us your relevant listings!

The careers page of Patient First Neighborhood Medical Centers promises that competitive compensation, great benefits, and flexible hours are only the beginning – we imagine the rest involves a bunch of hard work on your part.

We see three admin opportunities referenced here with the Council of Exceptional Children – the voice and vision of special education.

NCI seeks Public Affairs Specialist/Writer/Reporter to work on Army PEO Soldier team. Secret clearance – active or obtainable – is required.

Maybe we’re a little paranoid (ok, we’re super-paranoid) – but we’re pretty certain that a company with a name like MAXIMUS and a tagline like helping government serve the people is probably working towards imminent citizen enslavement/military takeover – probably with the help of that NCI/PEO Soldier business. Now that we think of it, we should have probably kept our concerns to ourselves. Search Reston location for assorted admin/analyst jobs & internships.
