Kratos !!!

Friday in high Summer - what could be better? Strasburg pitching, temperatures inching back from broil, and some fierce, invincible, bad-ass and beach-located jobs from your favorite™ public affairs & communications jobs resource.

Associate Editor/Communications Manager with the American Coatings Association is might be a fine job on its merits alone – but we’re mainly impressed with how great their headquarters looks.

New and new-ish with our pals at Edelman PR:
Optimistically-named healthcare reform cadre Young Invincibles seek New Media Coordinator for 9-month campaign – they suggest you should be able to roll with the punches, which seems counter-intuitive to the whole invincible bit.

Apollo AllianceDirector of State & Local Initiatives – San Francisco, CA – apply by July 15

More for your Westward-ho wants with the SEIU California State Council – our guess is that these are located in the Sacramento HQ:
AMERESCO – self-assessed premier provider of energy efficiency and renewable technology solutions – seeks Government Relations Manager.

Opportunities with AED’s Center for Social Marketing & Behavioral Change:
In what looks like a recent listing, the Hispanic National Bar Association seeks a New Media & Communications Manager with multimedia skills in both in content creation (video, photography, audio) and proficiency with related software. Should you let the fact that HNBA lists someone currently holding the position dissuade you from applying? We have no idea.

Progressive Future:
The PICO National Network is involved in faith-based community organizing in the US and internationally – they seek a Communications Director to help them achieve their simple-yet-grand vision for an American society that works for everyone.

A lot of new opportunities (several admin) available with George Washington University, including:
WHSV-TV, Channel 3 - the Shenandoah Valley’s Most-Trusted Source for Local News* seeks weekend Sports Anchor/Reporter. This could finally be your big break – Harrisonburg, Va.

Kratos is a defense/security contractor that shares the same name as bad-ass looking video game character as well as a Romanian Goth/Dark Metal band. How great is that? [Answer: very!] Nonetheless, we suggest not bringing up those nuggets in your interview for Director of Communications & Outreach. They’re also in the market for an Admin Assistant/Receptionist.

Chlopak, Leonard, Schechter & Associates, a DC-based communications firm is seeks applicants for mid & senior-level positions. Ideal senior-level candidates should have 8+ years experience (4+ for mid-level) in public affairs, corp./crisis communications, political campaigns or on Capitol Hill. Experience in media, PR agency, or in communications capacity at company, association or non-profit also desirable. Strategic-minded, energetic pros w/ superior writing skills & passion for communications encouraged to apply. Fluency in Spanish required for some mid-level positions. Resume and cover letter to More info on firm here.

You will make all kinds of mistakes; but as long as you are generous and true, and also fierce, you cannot hurt the world or even seriously distress her. She was made to be wooed and won by youth – that’s from Winston Churchill’s My Early Life – and, it’s also the inspiration for intense-sounding B2B e-media group FierceMarkets, who seek Editor/Reporter for their FierceHealthcare on a part-time/contract basis. Marketing-related positions also available.

Perfect for the commitment-phobic – multiple temporary opportunities with CSPAN:
Broadcasting Board of GovernorsMultimedia Production Specialist – $62k-$97k – job ID: GS-1071-11/12 – apply by July 30

Our friends at American University have freshened up their careers page (you can click here to search positions without registering) – and it looks like we can now link directly to available positions:
While these are also part of the AU universe, we thought we would reference this Senior Reporter position with WAMU separately – local DC news/politics focus – as well as this when-can-we-start? Ocean City, MD-based Reporter/Host slot.

World BankOnline Communications Editor – East Asia/Pacific Region team – apply by July 27

Friday's search resource: the job board of the conservative/libertarian-oriented America's Future Foundation.

* we made that up.
