We have nothing against the National Association of Realtors – but we have long been a little mystified that an organization of that size and scope doesn’t have a careers page (we looked – let us know if we missed it), or classifieds for real estate jobs nationwide, for that matter. Of course, that should concern candidates for their media relations-oriented Public Affairs Associate or Senior Public Affairs Associate positions.

Urban Institute:
We hadn’t previously noticed the unfortunately-named Doostang – self-described as an online community that connects top professionals to select opportunities in finance, consulting, media, and more.

A small litter of opportunities with the cat advocates (catvocates?) at Alley Cat Allies:

New from the North American Electric Reliability CorporationDirector of Governmental Relations (pdf). Can also be found here, under executive category). They’re also in the market for an Attorney (pdf) to work on legislative & regulatory issues.

We could not find this Monster-powered and Largo-located Manager, Public Relations job with Comcast Cable replicated at the Comcast careers page. Maybe you’ll have better luck.

For your Monday resource – the internationally-focused and super-comprehensive Public Affairs World website is a must-see source for lobbying/PR info from abroad.
