The Road Less Traveled

For your usual Tuesday specialty programming, we've ignored the usual major public affairs job sources and boards, and pulled up listings by clicking on some our older listings form last year (along with a couple search-engine finds).

We can't guarantee that some of these opportunities aren't also found on craigslist or Roll Call or included on the dozen other major/mainstream sources of communications, advocacy and PR opportunities you probably know well, because we simply just didn't look there. Still, some of these slots may offer a little less in the way of competition for your sterling CV and sharp cover letter.
