Under the Radar

For your Tuesday specialty programming, we changed up our usual search methodologies to look for (potentially) less-widely advertised/circulated opportunities. We did not utilize job boards or search engines, but rather simply revisited listings from jobs we found over a randomly-chosen period of a few days dating back to November 2009. We can't guarantee these jobs aren't also showing up on search engines or popular (or obscure) job boards, but we think some of these might be less well-known to your rival job-searchers who are not patronizing DCPA+CJ.

But first, we bring you this closing-soon opportunity we just received from Young Professionals in Foreign Policy who seek an Executive Vice President to manage the day-to-day operations of the organization, including engaging current and emerging foreign policy experts and leaders, supporting events and programming, coordinating fundraising and development, conducting foreign policy research, and much, much more – apply by Dec. 15
