"So, what's up w/ Adonal Foyle these days?"

We've got great jobs, minor diversions, a healthy dose of conspiracy theory, some espionage, and a touch of local bio-terror in Monday's edition – right after previously-noted opportunities closing this week:

Newly-available with Rafetto Herman Strategic Communications: PR Assistant Account Exec/Account Exec – at least one year's worth of relevant experience required.

American Diabetes Association:
If you’re like us, you’ve often wondered what’s become of long-time Golden State Warrior back-up big man Adonal Foyle – we’re pleased to see that he’s now a member of the World Sports Humanitarian Hall of Fame – and you might be happy to learn of the Democracy Matters program he founded in association with the political watchdogs/scolds at Common Cause, especially if your inclined to apply for a campus-based Internship with the DM effort. By the way, Foyle also runs the Kerosene Lamp Foundation, helping less-privileged kids in the Caribbean & US.

Mission:Readiness – is an organization led by senior retired military leaders working towards ensuring continued American security and prosperity by calling for investments in the upcoming cohort of American children, as well as compulsory paramilitary service for all children aged 11-17. OK, OK that last part isn’t true at all (unless that’s phase three of Operation Young Thunder). Senior Associate and perhaps Associate (pdf) & San Francisco-based California State Director (pdf) sought – we suspect your first assignment will be to find out how much we really know.

The Americans Elect plan to seize the reins of our nation is to subvert the party process and nominate their own Manchurian Candidate by undoubtedly secure and not-at-all-manipulable online ballot. We look forward to their eventual showdown with the Mission: Readiness cabal. Join the movement as Deputy Policy Director – and please make sure we’re sent to one of the cushier Citizen Reeducation Centers once your cadre takes control.

American Jewish World Service:
Will the International Spy Museum use enhanced interrogation techniques in your interview? Send them your resume in invisible ink and find out:
Did you know that Manassas, Va. is home to the self-assessed world's largest and most diverse culture collection, including a broad range of cell lines, microorganisms, and viruses? It’s good to know we don’t have far to travel to pick up our next order of Porcine Entovirus 3. In any event, we suggest staying close to the office and not wandering around too much if you’re tapped as Executive Assistant with ATCC/Global Bioresource Center.

Purely a coincidence, really, that we next bring you Director, Government Relations with the Infectious Diseases Society of America – $88k-$93k.

Patent & Trademark OfficePublic Affairs Specialist – $74k-$97k – job ID: OUS-2011-0005 – apply by May 5

The Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights seeks Legislative Assistant – relevant lobbying/legislative experience desired, along with interest in civil rights issues – apply by Apr. 28

Ernst & Young seeks Legislative Policy Associate Director who understands that schedules are driven by Congress; and that late nights (you’re partying with ______’s staff at Rex), weekend ("So I ran into _____ ’s health LA at Gold Cup …."), and early morning ("Who’s got the _____ breakfast covered?") activities in support of relationship building with stakeholders will be required. Probably a lot of work involved, too.

What’s new with the folks at Bloomberg?
Teach for America seems to be pretty flexible as to where you can hang your hat and park your Kia – perhaps that’s one reason they’re lauded as one of Fortune’s top workplaces for 2011:
Bellwether Education Partners works to help dramatically accelerate the achievement of low-income students – seeking Manager, Strategic Communications & Events.

Securities Industry and Financial Markets AssociationPAC Manager

Montgomery Housing Partnership
Washington MonthlyBusiness Intern – apply by May 6

Association of Public Television StationsGovernment Relations Assistant

Another likely-secretive front group bent on world- (or at least multi-hemispheric-) domination goes by the unassuming name of European-American Business Council. They seek a Policy Manger (probably a euphemism for Industrial Spy or Junior-level Assassin) who is a self-starter with diplomatic (yet icy when the occasion demands it, we imagine) demeanor.

Your career search widget of the day: the jobs board from the Maryland Association of Nonprofit Organizations. Note: this site loads a little slowly for us, so additional patience on your part may be required.
