Surprise Appearance

We originally didn't expect to have a post today, but we got several nice direct-to-us submissions that we didn't want to wait on until we fully return to operation late this week or next week.  Enjoy.

Also, don't forget to scroll back for yesterday's short run of previously noted opportunities closing this week. 

USAID (through Apprio Inc.) is hiring for a new Press Lead to support its U.S. Global Development Lab. They are looking for a communications professional who has 4-6 years of experience working with the media, who is comfortable building relationships both internally and externally, and who is psyched to help tell stories like these. [note: while the comment field alerted us to a possible link malfunction, we've been further told that needed to post it in that fashion, but they'll be looking for people with media/external communications skills – so our suggestion would be that you apply for job as posted, but also highlight any media relations/communications/PR background.  Hope that helps].

Residential & retail developer/operator EDENS is looking for a Communications Director with 10-15 years of relevant experience – local properties (of their dozens nationwide) include Union Market, the Mosaic District, and this coming-soon-in-North-Old-Town development.

The Migration Policy Institute is seeking a new President with strong leadership skills, a clear understanding of the importance of objective, fact-based nonpartisan public policy research & analysis, and a broad knowledge of migration and/or closely related fields.

Here’s a fresh call for an organized & detail-oriented Program Manager to handle event planning, provide marketing & digital content, and assistant with webinar & broadcast studio activities at the National Press Foundation – $35k-$45k

The Baltimore Metropolitan Council seeks a Communications Associate (pdf) to serve as primary webmaster and to assist in publications development – proficiency with Joomla CMS, graphic design skills, and writing/journalism experience desired.

GOPAC, a longtime force in identifying & supporting future Republican leaders, is putting out the call for Interns (scroll to find) for Spring, Summer & Fall 2017 – solid academic records, strong writing, research & computer skills, as well as an interest in Republican politics, will merit you consideration.

Squared Communications seeks full-time & well-organized PR Intern with strong written & verbal communication skills – $11/hr – Union Station area – January start date preferred.

… and finally: Kimberly Clark passed along their Welcome Original Thinkers recruitment campaign, which features a multi-choice personality quiz.   It’s quick, well-conceived and fun, and in their words, will help prospective employees learn what kind of thinkers they are, what kind of jobs they'd best fit; here’s some more info as to what they’re up to.  And, after we took the quiz (we’re Analyzers here, it appears), we searched through jobs with KC and turned up these recent communications-related opportunities:

The link to the USAID Press Lead job isn't correct. It leads to a program analysts position.

Beware USAID. I recently laboriously applied for a communications job there. The application required supplemental mini-essays on one's work experience, etc. Later, USAID announced it was not going to fill the job.
