We're Trading You to Philly

We struggled to clear a few snowflakes off our windshields and slogged through the light dusting of road salt on the streets this morning to bring today's blizzard-avoided edition, kicking off with previously-referenced jobs closing this week:

It’s sensible that an employer asks that candidates possess a personal political philosophy compatible with the organization’s mission and public policy objectives – but that requirement lacks meaningful context (and really doesn’t help you out) if it’s a mystery organization like this one seeking Press Intern and Policy Research Intern candidates.

Here’s what's new in the DC precincts of Fleishman-Hillard since we last checked in on them:
