That's Soooo Random

For your Tuesday specialty programming, we're once again steering clear of search engines and job boards, and instead simply gone directly to a random set of employer pages we've visited in the past. While a selection of these opportunities may also show up in search engines and popular public affairs jobs sites, that's not how we found them.  We hope this spin of the job-roulette wheel lands on your lucky number today.  On a related note, please stop using random like we just did above.
