Once Again Randomized

Wednesday update: We are swamped on a variety of fronts right now.  We'll try to post some opportunities folks have sent us in recent days shortly, but that might be it for this week.  Thanks and happy hunting!

For your Tuesday specialty programming, we are once again avoiding frequently-used job-boards & search engines and instead going directly to a random set of employer pages we've visited in the past. While a selection of these opportunities may – for all we know – also show up in search engines and popular public affairs jobs sites, our guess is that at least some of these jobs will be less-well-trafficked outside the DCPA+CJ community.
