Tuesday, October 18, 2011


For your Tuesday specialty programming, we've kept clear of search engines and relevant job sites, and instead simply gone directly to a random set of employer pages we've visited in the past. While a selection of these opportunities may – for all we know – also show up in search engines and popular public affairs jobs sites, our guess is that at least some of these jobs will be less-well-trafficked outside the DCPA+CJ community. Plus, this approach appeals to our love of injecting some randomness, chance and kismet into your job search.
