For my Georgetown Students – Jobs in the PR Field – *Real Jobs*
As my part-time gig is teaching at Georgetown, most of the first-semester (and first semester EVER of the School of Continuing Studies at Georgetown University) are going to be graduating in May, many have expressed a desire to change gigs. It happens. When I got my Master’s in the mid 90’s, the ink was not dry on my diploma before I was blasting out resumes. It happens.
So: one of the best — if not THE BEST — resource for communications professionals is Ned Lundquist’s “JOTW” or “Job of the Week.” Here’s more from the Web site version of Ned’s excellent, free resource:
Ned Lundquist’s “Job of the Week” free e-mail networking newsletter and website for professional communicators has a cult following of more than 10,000 readers (the 5-digit milestone was reached October 6, 2006). The job leads are just one reason his faithful followers begin their Mondays (and sometimes Tuesdays through Fridays) with a cuppa and JOTW.
So if you are thinking about changing gigs or getting a new one, jump on Ned’s free bandwagon by sending an email to the listserv or simply visiting the Web site.
So here’s a few that I found that may be of interest to my peeps in the Washington, DC area — with a big thanks to Ned to keeping this up all those years:
My caveat – I know nothing about the jobs, the organizations, the salaries, etc., but encourage you to check them out. The job market is not dead, it’s just really tired.
Happy hunting G’Town grads. You guys are the best!
