Heads up! No new post on Tuesday; see you again on Wednesday, July 18

Using the assumption that calendar Summer lasts from the Friday before Memorial Day though Labor Day (101 days, by our count) , we're sorry to report that your summer is 51.48% over as of today.  Get out and have some fun, OK?

And also, you can scroll back or go here for a particularly large run of previously-noted opportunities closing this week.

The University of Texas System seeks DC-based Coordinator of Federal Relations for variety of admin/support and research duties – $50k – two years relevant experience required – best of all they don’t need you at your desk until after Labor Day!

The Truman National Security Project begins accepting Fall 2102 Intern applications today.

Ketchum has also just posted a call for Intern help for the Fall.

Center for Science in the Public Interest
We’re fans of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, but we can’t figure out why they would impose such a short application window (posted July 12, apply by July 17) for a high-impact/high-experience post like Chesapeake Blueprint Campaign Director – seeking candidates with minimum ten years experience in developing and implementing regional and national environmental issue campaigns, including specific experience in strategic communications and political advocacy.

On the other side of the coin, you’ve got plenty of time – until Sept. 10, to be exact – to get your application in for this Boston-located Communications Director post with SEIU.  We suggest getting to it sooner than that, though.
