You could work one (or intern) just one building away from the workplace home of DCPA+CJ in surprisingly pleasant Crystal City (really, we kind of love it here*) at the US Committee for Refugees & Immigrants:

More winner, achiever and urgent prose here.

Here’s an internal communications focused Senior Manager, Communications spot on the Capitol One roster. Part of your portfolio appears to involve collaborating with the compensation team – who would seem to be pretty good people to make friends with there.
