Assorted Advice & Fall 2010 Intern Resources

Today seems like a good spot for a grab-bag of internship- and job-search advice we need to get out of our system.

Fall 2010 Internships

We are approaching high-season to apply for Fall internships; we regularly see July deadlines noted in many cases – and this would also be the right time to apply to organizations that don’t list specific application deadlines.

We will not be providing a comprehensive rundown of Fall intern opportunities – but you can use our Summer intern specials, as well as selected special-edition pages as a resource to hunt for companies/organizations with Fall 2010 intern opportunities in the DC area:
You might also find a few additional relevant opportunities/organizations via some of our earlier specialized/focused sections:
We highly recommend the Spotted: DC Summer Interns blog for entertainment & educational (mostly of the what-not-to-do sort) purposes.

Out-of-town job search/moving to DC area

We occasionally get job-search questions (and we enjoy them – so bring it on) – the most frequent of which is something along the lines of:

I don’t live in the DC area – any advice on improving my odds, or do I just have to take a leap of faith and move here first?

A: you can improve your odds by networking via alumni groups/state societies in the DC area (also via LinkedIn/facebook) – in fact, that very question is a good one to ask in forums like those. However, in most cases, you’ll probably just have to take the leap of faith and come to DC and go from there – in which case, our search firm directory might help you find some temping/admin opportunities to pay the rent while you angle for the job you really want.

The second-most popular query we get: Where should I live when I come to town? Our main suggestions are close-in, metro-accessible, and short-term (until you really figure out where you want to live after you’ve been here awhile). We also suggest moving to town with the minimum amount of possessions/furniture/stuff you can get by with at first.

Random Advice

A super-sharp HR person recently told us about one of her major annoyances – meeting with job seekers who do not have a clear sense of what they would like to do for her organization. Don’t go into an interview for a particular job – or for an informational/getting-to-know-you interview – expecting the HR person to look at your resume/background and figure out how you fit into their organization’s needs. You are there to sell yourself on what you can (and would like to) accomplish for a potential employer. Obviously, you can make it clear that you are also flexible and adaptable to whatever else an HR pro suggests – but the onus is on you to demonstrate what you can do for them.

We’ve heard this nugget from several sources, but the smart people at RH Strategic put it best: ALWAYS submit your resume in PDF. That gives you the control over the formatting and prevents us from seeing Microsoft Word’s helpful corrections to your spelling, tense, and grammarthey provide some more related advice here.

Staffing Advisors’ blog – Search Firm Insider – is another fine resource for job-seekers – and their employer-oriented blog is also good read for some perspective from the other side of the interview table.

Email addresses – this from another HR pro: for the dozens of responses she receives by email for any given position, she deletes the ones from non-serious/non-professional-sounding email addresses without opening them. So lose the or your in favor of some variant of your name for job-searching purposes.

Rock Stars & Romanovs

We’ll start your Friday job-searchings with this fresh Account Supervisor opportunity at Raffetto Herman Strategic Communications – seeking candidates with 6-10 years of experience including agency background, and a history of working with technology or government-focused media.

The latest opportunity at Widmeyer Communications: Vice President for their PreK-12 Education practice group - at least 10 years of experience required of PR agency, media relations and/or other relevant communications background required; familiarity with national/state education policy issues and contacts with education reporters/influentials a plus. Widmeyer also continues to seek Account Manager/Senior Account Manager candidates; again preferably with education policy experience.

The Federation of Associations in Behavior & Brain Sciences seeks Freelance Writer – and, since they’re a collective of related associations, we thought we’d try to find a relevant opportunity at one of their members – and the first one we came up with was Development Coordinator at the American Psychological Association.

The American Immigration Lawyers Association unabashedly seeks rock star-type candidates for their Marketing Associate position. And, a little closer to the border, we see that the Pizza Hut outposts of Marble Falls, TX also seek Rock Star Managers.

Smithsonian InstitutionDirector of External Affairs, Archives of American Art – $90k-$110k – apply by July 31

Help fight the scourge of the Romanovs as Office Coordinator for the Hemophilia Federation of America – bilingual a plus, ideally w/ Spanish.

To care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan
– that should put you in the right mood as you apply for Public Affairs Specialist with the Dept. of Veterans Affairs – $89k-$136k – job ID: VZ-10-GKP-359150 – apply by July 8

For your far-flung Friday needs, we look to the Pacific Northwest for Cobalt – the self-assessed leading provider of digital marketing solutions to the automotive industry. We just like the word cobaltSenior Manager, Public Relations & Media – Seattle, WA – but wait, there are some local opportunities, too, in the sales/ad/marketing fields:
Independent Sector is the leadership forum for charities, foundations, and corporate giving programs committed to advancing the common good in America and worldwide:
We featured Press Secretary with the Union of Concerned Scientists just last week – we either missed this DC-or-Cambridge-MA-based Energy Outreach Coordinator position at that time, or it’s new since then.

Bill of Rights InstitutePresident – search managed by Talent Market

New from MicrosoftDirector, Government Affairs

Death Penalty Information CenterCommunications Coordinator – apply by July 7

More from the far-flung file – American ExpressDirector, Public Affairs – serve as external communications lead for the Consumer Travel Network; develop & implement PR strategies for CTN products and enhancements; manage a PR agency to maximize results – New York – can also search here, putting job ID 124316BR in the keyword box

Corporation for National & Community Service
Public Affairs Associate – $42k-$62k – apply by July 1

Susan Davis InternationalCivilian Military Public Affairs Counsel – military public affairs experience coupled with private sector public relations/pubic affairs experience required

Chamber of Commerce:
New (or at least posted since 6/20) with the International Securities ExchangeGovernment Relations Director – you should have 7-10 years of experience in government relations, preferably in the area of financial services or stock / derivatives exchanges; previous experience as a Congressional staffer on the Senate Banking Committee or House Financial Services Committee moves your CV to the top of the pile.

HoneywellAdmin Assistant, Government Relations – can also search here, using DC location or job # 00136218

United Way:
The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association seeks a PAC Manager – PAC/fundraising experience, along with political/Capitol Hill background is preferred. Their part-time Beef Quality Assurance Assistant slot makes no mention of tasting/sampling or grilling duties, but we suggest wearing your favorite chef’s apron to the interview, anyway.

For your Friday job-search reference - Idealist is super-popular & prolific source of nonprofit jobs - and don't miss their free-to-download (or pay for printed versions) guides for first-job and career-switching nonprofit job seekers.

Best wishes for a super-great-heart-of-summer weekend from your favorite™ public affairs & communications jobs resource.
