Friday is a Work in Progress

More great stuff later today; here's a handful of viewer submissions to start you off while we sort out various computer issues and other responsibilities.

New at the New America Foundation
Chlopak, Leonard, Schechter & Associates seeks hard-working (45 hours a week’s worth) Intern candidates starting ASAP and running through December.  Foreign language proficiency, especially in Spanish, and social media expertise are deemed pluses for this paid position

Clyde Strategies  seeks Associate/Senior Associate – strong writing skills, PR agency experience and knowledge of social media move your resume to the top of the stack.

Red Alert Politics
, an online-only publication for young conservatives, libertarians and Republicans is seeking a part-time Reporter/Blogger with attuned to breaking political news and is looking for part-time work.  Some Sunday work required – apply by Oct. 20

Discount the 2012/8/17 code in the url for this fine (and still active) New Media Associate opportunity w/ the Hatcher Group.   Knowledge of HTML and CSS, experience in online graphic design, including Photoshop and excellent writing, editing and research skills earn you consideration.

Among the freshest opportunities at Porter Novelli:
This is a great and glorious day – our friends at the World Bank have finally put the days of job descriptions featuring six-point type and multiple-scrolling internal windows behind them.  What a time to be alive!
Global engineering giant Fluor Corp. seeks Communications Specialist to support their government business group; 5-to-10 years of communications, business and related management experience preferably related to the DoD and/or DOE 

Advancing Humanity through Technology sounds like the kind of tagline for a secretly evil corporation that only a 22nd century cop played by Will Smith or Vin Diesel can defeat.  You play a co-starring role as a young, sympathetic Department Assistant, Government Relations who helps our hero stop whatever deadly schemes your nefarious superiors (Gary Oldman? Christopher Waltz?) at IEEE are behind.

Speaking of evil technology companies: HP seeks Senior Manager, PAC & Political Programs. (Yes, yes, we’re kidding.)

The Archdiocese for the Military Services seeks Director of Major Gifts & Development with five plus years of direct fundraising experience with a proven track record of closing gifts at the $100K level and above, as well as a comprehensive understanding of the Catholic Church and military life and structure.

If your ambition is to work for a French (but for your purposes, Bethesda-based) public multinational industrial conglomerate & nuclear energy powerhouse, then today is your day: AREVADirector, External Communications & Stakeholder Relations

The Grameen Foundation, a worldwide microfinance/international development group, seeks Manager of Institutional Relations for corporate & foundation fundraising and partnership-building.

More Oktoberfest this weekend (although things really start to crank up the next couple weekends after that):
