For your Tuesday specialty programming, we're once again steering clear of mainstream search engines and job boards, and have instead simply gone directly to a random set of employer pages we've visited in the past, as well as a couple lesser-trafficked job boards we haven't cruised in a long while. While a selection of these opportunities may – for all we know – also show up in well-known search engines and popular public affairs jobs sites, our hope 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 additional kismet, fate, and just plain randomness into your job search.
