  • Research Analyst – experience with quantitative analysis and familiarity with energy & environmental policy sought
  • Policy Specialist – provides broad spectrum of support the government affairs team
We have it on good authority that the folks at the Sierra Club are still trying to find the right candidate for their Associate Press Secretary supporting the Beyond Coal campaign; 3 years prior experience as a journalist, media liaison or other position involving media/press relations merits you consideration

Discovery CommunicationsSocial Media Coordinator

Web-based business selling military uniforms
seeks sharp Content Writer to join the platoon – Spanish language skills a plus – Manassas, Va.

… and, finally: we’re intrigued on so many levels by this call for an Executive Assistant for your Washington Redskins.  First off, it it’s not found among the many opportunities (some good intern gigs, by the way) noted here w/ the team, and secondly, we can’t find any revealing info on the website/email address noted in the listing (even via whois!).  Could the domain name even be tied to Dan Snyder’s somewhat notorious river-viewing manse?  In any event, we’d love an upgrade to club seats one of these days if you snag this post.

… and finally, part 2: speaking of Potomac River views – here’s an Online Marketing Coordinator post w/ Handwriting Without Tears in river-adjacent Cabin John, MD – apply by Apr. 15

So with that, we hope your weekend is without tears (except the of joy variety, of course) and that currently underway RGIII et al workouts and ongoing #Natitude are without tears (as in, of ligaments), or for that matter, sans crying of any kind.
