Looking Back

For your Tuesday specialty programming, we are not focusing on a particular job-type or sector – but instead, we feature jobs found via an alternative search methodology.

Long-time DCPA+CJ enthusiasts have heard this spiel before: In addition to our regular practice of assembling job-board finds, search-engine results and direct submissions from HR folks, we occasionally look back to a previous post (usually one from a year ago or thereabouts) to generate a few additional opportunities from new openings with organizations highlighted in that older post.

Today's edition is exclusively derived from previous finds generated by looking back at posts from over a few days in late-March 2010. We suspect they may provide some leads you might not have otherwise found via search engine magic or some of the more popular public affairs and communications job boards. Happy hunting!
