... at least that's what one seer-of-digits below would have you believe.  And who are you to doubt that, with fresh job-catch below, as well as previously noted opportunities closing this week and special bonus new listings available here?

We guess it just didn’t work out; at least that’s what the reappearance of a once summer-deadlined opportunity for Director of Public Policy Initiatives with the Association of Research Libraries would have us believe.  Or maybe there’s more than one of those positions at the group, or they just didn't select a candidate the first time.  In any event, the listing now posts a spooky Oct. 31 deadline.

The ideal candidate should be a geek for the issues, and comfortable with both hackers and policymakers. Link:

Digital Properties Manager: This person will take the lead on developing and implementing a digital-first strategy for the organization, including updates to our digital properties, production of digital content, and oversight of our online presence.
