I decided I'm tired of seeing great-looking jobs that aren't in my area or field or whatever, and just passing on by instead of sharing the info with my fellow fans! Especially because some of my flist are, like me, looking for a better job (or *a* job) or might be. So I created a free comm called fandom_jobs
for us to share info when it comes our way, or ask about the kind of job we're looking for, or whine about the one we have. I'm also posting it to ecofans
as it's an environment-related job.
Besides, wouldn't it be neat if all the best jobs were held by fans? :D *visualizes the Obama family at a con, in costume*
The job announcement below came my way via a posting to the "Environmental Communication Network" list-serve by Eric Eckl. Eric is a good guy, who has an env'l communications consulting business in the D.C. area. It's one of his clients doing the hiring, as he says, so he might well be able to give some additional info, but certainly the CPB/ACB groups mentioned would have good info online that would be the best place to see more about who they are, and what they might be looking for.
Deadline: Jan 29. Location: region of Washington, D.C., USA. Other aspects of note: it seems they may only want a cover letter, CV/resume, and two work samples (much less than a lot of job apps require!)
