White Russians, Secret Clearances, Southern Idylls & The Internet of Things

Some fun stuff and fine jobs in today's all-over-the-place edition of DCPA+CJ.  Happy hunting.

Our friends at the Armed Forces Foundation have a new spot for a Programs & Fundraising Assistant in their Capitol Hill offices – 3-5 years relevant program management and development experience sought

The University of Maryland seeks Associate Director of University Marketing to assist in efforts to position UM as a top public research university.  At least 5 years experience in marketing, PR and/or event planning required; some budgeting and supervisory experience preferred – $63k-$78k – apply by Oct. 15

NARAL Pro-Choice America seeks Director of Communications & Online Advocacy Strategies with 10+ years experience that includes a blend of advocacy & media relations, especially in public relations or journalism, political media, or advocacy communications setting.

We really like Social Driver’s earnest, cheerful & instructive job description for their freshly-available Digital Strategist post – and especially their challenge to go beyond the usual cover-letter-and-resume routine in applying.

Opportunities w/ ManTech (search by req ID or use keyword media relations) – Secret clearances required
We have it on good authority that the freedom-loving folks at Freedom Works are still looking for a Digital Marketing Assistant with skill-set that includes Photoshop, Adwords, Facebook and familiarity w/ The Big Lebowski – $30k-$35k compensation, plus maybe someone will buy you a White Russian at happy hour.

Alexander Street Press – publishers, curators & collectors of a wide range of history & insight across varied formats – seek Web Marketing Coordinator who knows (or can get up to speed with) Drupal along w/ other related skills.  Academic/publishing experience helpful, Sox fans apparently encouraged, and dress code unabashedly casual.  Editorial & production posts (scroll down) also available.

 WBB Consulting – positions supporting military organizations; Secret clearances required
Coordinator, Community Engagement is new since we checked in a couple of days ago with our former Crystal City building-mates at Conservation International

Xenophon Strategies has an available-now (and running to end of year) Intern post for a candidate who can demonstrate strong writing and critical thinking skills and fundamental understanding of the media.

The Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond seeks Communicator to develop & implement strategic communications plans and translate complex subject matter into clear, well understood messages to a gullible, easily confused bunch of sheep well-informed public – $76k-$95k – Richmond, Va. – apply by Oct. 1.

How does Summerville, SC – 24 miles inland from Charleston – sound to you?  That’s your new home as Communications Specialist with MeadWestaco.  While the company is better known for paper & packaging products, you’ll apparently be providing communications support for their real estate development and land sales activities, including this pretty getaway spot.

Or, if Memphis, TN is more your ideal of southern idyll, there’s a Communications Specialist post there with Ducks Unlimited.

Multiple production-related opportunities and one Host spot available with National Public Radio for the TED Radio Hour and Ask Me Another programs.

The National Association for Equal Opportunity in Higher Education, the umbrella organization of the nation's Historically Black Colleges and Universities, seeks Legislative & Admin Assistant with 3-5 years of related experience preferably in a higher education advocacy association or other advocacy or legislative setting.
