The Wire, Season 4

The League of Conservation Voters careers page shows recently posted Communications Associate (apply by June 22) and Press Secretary (no deadline mentioned) opportunities. They may have already received plenty of resumes for the dating-from-April Director of Communications job – but there it is.

The Healthcare Distribution Management Association seeks an Associate Director, State Government Affairs with five to seven years corporate/association experience in state government relations. Understanding of distribution and/or pharmaceutical/pharmacy issues strongly preferred.

The National Emergency Management Association wants your resume for the Government Relations Director (note: pdf link) slot by July 6. Their related-group Council of State Governments shows other local and New York-based opportunities available – one of which we referenced in early April.

Fancy yourself a stalwart Right Winger? The Caps could use you, of course, and so could the National Right to Work Committee. Hampton Roads, Va. location. Bonus conservative-friendly nugget: you’ll be emailing or faxing your CV to a Ms. Coulter.

Leverage your knowledge of federal tax code and its use to achieve public policy objectives to secure a W2 form featuring a $120k-$153k score as a Specialist on Tax Expenditures with the Congressional Research Service. Job ID 090136, apply by Aug. 3.

Does this Vice President, Public Affairs & Policy Research listing with Harris Interactive interest you – except for the New York location? Our own research found an alternate posting that referenced an NY or DC* option. Further investigation is up to you.

Speaking of well-known polling/research organizations, Gallup has an assortment of business development/marketing opportunities (search DC location) that might fit well with your public affairs or related experience.

Join in the effort to protect immigrant women and girls from violence with the Tahirih Institute:
Baltimore City Public Schools is searching for an Executive Assistant, Networks with a degree in education, business, management, public administration or related field; Master's degree preferred. Probably best if you don’t mention your knowledge of the Charm City school system is limited to owning season four of The Wire on DVD. $61k-$104k.

This Communications Director opportunity with AOL requires experience handling product-based campaigns and launches, along with considerable media outreach and spokesperson skills and abilities.

This sounds like a great job to us: Alumni Program Manager for the National Defense University at Ft. McNair. $70k-$84k – job ID NDU-106-09 – apply by July 7.

Habitat for Humanity has these Americorps/VISTA-funded opportunities in their DC offices:
Here's a New Product Development Coordinator opportunity with the healthcare consulting industry stalwarts at the Advisory Board perhaps suited to you young, go-getter types out there.

The Brookings Institution is in search of a Web Coordinator to keep their Economic Studies content looking fresh. Apply by July 12.

Your primary role will be to organize local, regional, and national dodgeball tournaments across the country if you are the lucky future Special Coordinator of the Best Shot Foundation. We realize that some of you would probably be willing to do that for free and for fun – but they’ll pay you $50k-$60k a year, and your work will help raise fund to fight pneumonia around the world. And, while this all sounds like something of a lark, you should be prepared to work hard, as the nature of a start up requires employees to undertake ambitious goals enthusiastically in the face of limited resources.

Do you really think we would let an opportunity for a Volcanologist with the Smithsonian Institution slip by unmentioned? Knowledge of quaternary volcanoes and volcanic processes ranging from individual volcanoes to patterns of regional or global volcanism is required. $102-$116k, job ID 09A-RM-295132-DEU-NMNH – apply by July 21.
