Welcome back to your shortened work- and job-seek-week; let's start off by marking your calendars for the Idealist Grad Fair – Thursday June 23, 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 pm – at the Katzen Arts Center at American University. This event offers you the chance to meet representatives from more than 60 graduate programs in public policy, law and related fields. Hosted by the folks at AU's School of Public Affairs.

Note: scroll back to Monday or click here to find a pretty good-sized run (23) of previously-noted opportunities closing this week.

This Project Director, Housing Project position with the Bipartisan Policy Center sports a June 17 application deadline – can also check it out via LinkedIn. You’ll note that the Vice President, Development position there has been on our radar screen for a little more than a month.

Xenophon Strategies is looking for several candidates for varied positions to help manage external relations for a large defense-industry client. Not surprisingly, they are primarily interested in hearing from applicants with a background working in defense, military and/or aerospace communications for a PR firm, association or military/government agency.

American Cancer Society:
What a great job – Director of Public Policy for the Interactive Advertising Bureau – we can’t get over how challenging/enriching it would be to help shape policy in the still-young and contentious world of online advertising (plus monthly visits to the NYC mothership; we bet they put you up in a pretty cool hotel with all kinds of beautiful people milling around). Wow.

Pretty much guaranteed this is going to involve a lot of evil-doing.
