Work in Progress

We start your Friday with an invitation to attend (or watch via U-stream) a panel on Media Careers in DC hosted by New York University’s Wasserman Center for Career Development – experts from APCO Worldwide, Magnet Media Originals, National Public Radio, and Politico will offer networking tips, share organizational insights and answer audience questions – Tuesday, Sept. 10, at 6:30 pm at the Abramson Family Auditorium, 1307 L Street, NW.

A bit of a work-in-progress today; more to come soon. OK, we're done.

Here is a fresh Digital Content Manager opportunity with our friends at Food & Water Watch – five or more years of successful content strategy experience and/or online journalism background required; experience in a Mac-based environment a plus.

The Government Technology & Services Coalition seeks an Admin Assistant/Intern to support marketing & events-related activities – $10-$12/hr – experience with Eventbrite, Constant Contact, Facebook and LinkedIn preferred; Mac user a plus.

Our sources tell us these two starting-ASAP internships are still available w/ the YWCA USA – real skills-building activities promised; not admin or busywork.
Climate Reality ProjectClimate Science & Policy Associate – Masters degree climatology or environmental science required; familiarity with geospatial climate or environmental data and tools a plus.

Johns Hopkins University’s DC-based School of Advanced International Studies seeks Communications Associate/Director of Marketing & Branding – we suggest your first initiative in that role should be placing some value-priced advertising for SAIS on your friendly neighborhood public affairs jobs blog.

Scroll down and click on Administrative, then click on Administrative/Technical, and finally you’ll see a Director of Communications opportunity available with Arlington County Public Schools – $90k-$133k

Environmental & anti-sprawl advocate 1,000 Friends of Maryland seek a part-time Campaign Director for the Partners for Open Space Initiative – Baltimore, MD – apply by Sept. 18

American Academy of OphthalmologyDirector of Web & Digital Communications – San Francisco, CA

Raytheon Corp.Director of Communication, Middle-East/North Africa – Rosslyn-based, but position could eventually be moved to that region; we’re hoping that means Dubai or Qatar and not Beirut or Benghazi.  Or better yet, just stay in Rosslyn.

Speaking of that no-so-tranquil corner of the planet, Interfaith Peace Builders would like to enlist you in their solve-and-settle-Israel/Palestine-issues quest as Communications Coordinator for the group – $32k-$35k – Hebrew and/or Arabic language skills helpful.
