Job Posting: Opening in Washington, D.C.

I routinely receive a wide range of job openings, both from job sites like and from groups I belong to such as the alumni group for Northwestern Medill, which used to be the journalism school but now has a much longer, and to my mind goofier, name.

From time to time, I’ll post openings I receive here and also on my jobs page to help you in your quest to always be job hunting.

Here’s one in Washington for a writer with a religious bent to it:
