Beware the Gemini

From the birthday-coincidence dept., we send along June 10 greetings to Eliot Spitzer (1959) and John Edwards (1953). And no, Anthony Weiner's earthly debut is nowhere near there (9/4/64)

Latest from communications/PR firm MS&L:
The Insured Retirement Institute – voice of the annuity industry – seeks Communications Director (pdf) to handle broad portfolio of media relations, online communications and other PR-related duties.

  • Program Officer – cultural/museum background, exceptional organizational and project-management skills, top-notch writing and oral communication, traditional and social media savvy are among the attributes desired
  • Cultural Affairs Coordinator/Office Manager (scroll down) – responsibilities include admin support, management of office's communications campaigns, programmatic support, and oversight of archive and some cultural functions.
These fresh opportunities with the United Nations Foundation probably would have fit well in Tuesday’s gigantic (more than 100 opportunities noted) humanitarian/relief jobs special:

We’re considering giving the Pew Charitable Trusts a regular Friday spot (along with Friday mainstay AU). Yes, yes, we know you don’t care:

SAT-7 USA is the fundraising arm of a non-profit Christian satellite broadcast ministry serving the Middle East and North Africa – the are seeking a Social Media Coordinator to cross the Bay Bridge and join them in Easton, MD

We seldom see a come-on as mystifying to us olds (and non-gamers) as would you like to become part of the team that includes the creative visionaries behind Drizzt, Do’Urden and Spawn? But, we’re pretty clear on the fact that 38 Studios is currently seeking a Community Manager to join team in Timonium, Maryland and be part of online gaming history.

We’ve been on a bit of a Charlottesville, Va. roll of late – and we’ll add to it with this Marketing Communications Specialist (scroll down) position with Inova Solutions (not to be confused Inova Health Systems)

And just 60-some miles from C’ville, in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley, we find Director of Major Gifts with Bridgewater College.

American Medical AssociationDirector, Political & Legislative Grassroots (search DC location)

We think this opportunity for Communications Director, WARN (as in Warning, Alert, and Response Network) for PBS just sounds great. Also newly available: Director of Content, PBS KIDS Interactive and Coordinator, PBS Interactive slots.
