The Big Questions, Unanswered

Can GeoEye really see the junk in your backyard you've been meaning to get rid of?  Where do British diplomats like to go? Will Montgomery College be placed the Leaders or Legends division? Do you like tea? How clean was your room as a child?  These questions, and more, in your run-up-to-the-holiday edition of DCPA+CJ.

How clean are clean cars?  That’s the question you’ll be answering in your two-year term as Kendall Fellow with the Union of Concerned Scientists – the required Ph.D. in a related scientific or engineering field probably eliminates most you, unfortunately – DC or Berkley, CA – apply by Dec. 14

We stopped reading when ITT/Excelis started talking about the execution of a holistic internal and external strategic communications planManager, IGSS/EI Communications – Herndon, Va. or Fort Wayne, IN

George Mason University

Cleaning institute?  Boy, do they have the wrong person!”  That’s what your Mom will probably say when you announce your move joining the soap-making, grime-slaying gang at the American Cleaning Institute as a Government Affairs Coordinator.

Sibley HospitalPublic Relations Assistant – we’re already jealous of your lovely, relaxed Palisades/Spring Valley location

Not really in our usual wheelhouse here, but we’re happy to nonetheless pass on this Associate Athletic Director for Business Operations post at the University of Virginia – $95k-$135k – also lovely Charlottesville, Va. location, of course.

Whatever your holiday plans, DCPA+CJ hopes whatever travel challenges, family functioning, feasting, and football watching you have on the menu works out well.  Our Friday publishing plans are as of now undetermined, so we'll see you when we see you.
