Long-time DCPA+CJ habitués are probably familiar with our practice of going with (mostly) just-the-jobs programming in August.  While the descriptions are for-the-most-part spare, we've made an effort to bring home lots of jobs & internships for you during Summer's third act; previous hauls have reached 585 (2009) – 927 (2010) – 1,110 (2011) – 1,037 (2012) – 1,058 (2013) – 1,024 (2014) – 1,111 (2015).
