A little patience required here – as the New York Life careers page seems to generate unstable, session-based links – for the Exec Assistant position in their government affairs office: a) go to corporate careers, b) then to experienced professionals, c) then to experienced jobs, d) then to openings, e) then search using DC location or req ID 6064BR.
