Well-known national nonprofit seeks experienced Major Gifts Officer – qualifications include 5-7 years successful experience in major or planned gift fundraising, experience in making cold calls as well as developing cultivation and solicitation strategies; and top-notch interpersonal skills.

You can compare current offerings from the Heritage Foundation with ones we noted three weeks ago – by our (highly unscientific) reckoning, Senior Editorial Services Assistant and Personnel/Benefits Assistant appear comparatively fresh.

Northern Virginia Community College – Annandale location, except as noted:

Of course, we know what DHS stands for – but DNDO is new to us, so let’s just see what that stands for – oh man, that’s just disturbing to contemplate. Those of you made of sterner stuff may be interested in Public Affairs Specialist slot with Camber Corp. Highly experienced candidates desired.

Looking for a less scary option than working in the DHS/DNDO war-on-terror world? Perhaps Director of Communications for Youth Services America is more your speed.
