February, fin.

We were planning on sending off February with something in the screed/diatribe category; raging against a month of snow-nevitablity, gun-wielding professors, the dismantling of the Wizards, multiple DCPA+CJ pre-emptions, and healthcare reform summitry. But, the sun is out this morning, spring is around the corner, and we're just not very good at staying mad at anyone or anything. Bye bye, February - stay cold wherever you're headed, and we'll see you next year.

31 Flavors

Friday update - technical difficulties [in truth, a simple non-technical goof on our part] will delay today's post to Saturday.

See you tomorrow, unless we step on our ____ yet again.

Head out Route 50 to lovely Middleburg or up the New Jersey Turnpike. Flack for one of our many Indian-themed sports franchises or do your old CYO League coach proud by taking the helm at Notre Dame.

We found a few recent & interesting (but not local) opportunities by going to apply now and then using the keyword public affairs at the frustrating-to-us jobs site at Pfizer. Job #s also listed:
The Hanover Research Council will let their Senior Content Analyst, Institutional Research work out of their DC or Charlottesville, Va. locations. In either spot, you’ll review and maintain institutional data and databases, providing important assessment and analyses for continuous improvement of academic institutions in areas of enrollment, graduation rate, demographics, retention, etc.

Pew Charitable TrustsAdmin Associate, Operations – Pew Center on the States

The Batter Up Foundation works to revive interest in youth/high-school baseball in DC and to improve the development of local players, especially minorities, with the goal of increasing college opportunities (have you seen a college baseball team picture lately? – looks like a hockey team). Get on their roster as a part-time Grants Coordinator – modest stipend plus commission offered.

The Coalition Against Bigger Trucks (it’s exactly what it sounds like) seeks Field Director. Alexandria-based, but extensive travel required.

The American Society of Nephrology — dedicated to the study & treatment of kidney disease—seeks a Policy Analyst to administer legislative and advocacy program focused on kidney disease research and related issues.

We have some interesting items to consider from the Council on Foundations:
  • This Advocacy Coordinator position – which, oddly enough, does not yet show up on their own jobs @ COF page (click on jobs at the council tab)
  • Under the all jobs tab at their foundation jobs board, you’ll find fundraising, grant-making, program & other jobs like this Policy & Research Associate position with the Hunt Alternatives Fund
  • Interested in international relief work? COF’s comprehensive Haiti Disaster Response section provides a lot of information on foundation, NGO and corporate support/grantmaking efforts in support of Haitian relief – it might also provide you with some organizations to target for your own job search efforts. And, don’t forget our recent Relief/Humanitarian jobs special!
Off the public affairs beat, but high-profile enough to rate a mention here – search by DC location of Tesla Motors, and you’ll find two Sales Advisor and one Store Coordinator position.

International Association of Fire ChiefsWeb & Graphic Design Coordinator

Fannie Mae – can also search here, using job # noted:

The Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards will pay you $67k-$70k as their Online Media Coordinator; maybe they’ll even give you some sound advice as to what do with that windfall.

We’re usually hateful towards slow-loading, flash-enhanced homepages – but we like the subway-themed site (really – spend a few minutes poking around; it’s nicely done) of New York ad agency Gotham Inc. Here’s a Copywriter gig there – great taste in design and an interest in fashion/related fields are musts.

Law Enforcement Against Prohibition seeks Media Relations Intern. Prohibition of what? – yes, it’s just what you think it is.

It’s probably been bounced all over the twittersphere already, but maybe one or two of you don’t know that the DNC/Organizing for America is seeking a Social Networks Manager – a job we’ve seen inelegantly referred to as Twitterer for Pres. Obama by a handful of media outlets.

For your Monday resource - we've previously referenced the prolific and progressive-leaning job board from Idealist - but you might not be aware of these additional Idealist resources:

A happy dig-it-out or return-to-the-office Friday from your favorite™ public affairs & communications jobs resource.

Americans for the Arts
Leadership Alliances Associate – experience in a donor services, development, prospect research, or events department for an arts nonprofit organization or university desired

A pair of DC-based advocacy jobs and a bunch of Dallas-located opportunities noted with Susan G. Komen for the Cure:
Constellation Energy - Director of Nuclear Communications (search job ID 101601) - Baltimore, MD - your friends may make China Syndrome references, but it still sounds pretty great to us.

American University – scroll to find Library Specialist ($18-$19/hr) and Staff Assistant, Faculty Senate ($19-$22/hr).

The DC HQ of the Marijuana Policy Project sounds like a pretty swinging place to work these days. Maybe things are a little more laid back and less-gropey in the San Francisco Bay area, where a Development Officer job awaits. Or, join in the local fun by getting on their temp work list.

For your Friday job resource – you may or may not be too late for this month-old PR Director opportunity, but you might as well add communications/pr search firm Charet & Associates to the watch list.

*admittedly, we’re obsessives about an embarrassingly wide range of stuff.

Shovel Ready

We start shoveling out with a pretty small selection of previously-noted jobs closing this week. It's almost as if that all-powerful DC-area HR cadre somehow knew in advance this would be a snow-disturbed week. Weird.

National Alliance of Forest OwnersPolicy, Regulatory and Legal Affairs ProfessionalFeb. 8

Agricultural & construction equipment manufacturer CNH seeks State Government Affairs Professional - position to be located in Racine, WI; New Holland, MI; or DC, dependent on the candidate.

Been too long since we’ve brought you anything from out 6-point-type-loving pals (and multiple scrolling section enthusiasts, to boot) at the World Bank. That changes now:
We’d like to imagine the strapping and self-reliant types at the Frontier Strategy Group wouldn’t have any trouble digging out of the snow and getting the wagon train moving again – even the Copy Editor. Winning hire will be responsible for the editing and proofreading of all print and online research collateral and providing the voice of FSG at every level of output. Business development/marketing opportunities also available.

Fundraising/development-oriented opportunities with the USO – can also find them here:
The Washington Post is searching for an Editor to help optimize content for online search/traffic success. The Post’s own multi-layered jobs page is no help in this case, which we find more than a touch ironic in this case. Maybe you’ll have better luck.

The Long Term Care Pharmacy Alliance seeks a kinda-part-time (32 hr/wk) Director, Public Policy. Familiarity with public policies, laws and regulations affecting the long-term care pharma industry and in-depth knowledge of nursing home and long-term care payment systems – especially Medicare Part D – is desired.

Recently-added opportunities with the American Cancer Society’s Cancer Action Network:
National Council of State Housing Agencies:
What is naturopathic medicine? Advocate for whatever-the-heck-it-is as Director, State Legislative Affairs with the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians - $65k-$75k
