Hot Jobs 14

On the eve of Thanksgiving, most of us will probably be taking a day or two off from whatever rat race we are in to enjoy some quality time and turkey with our families.

Of course, for the job seeker, the race for your next job never really ends until that golden offer is in hand! Even still, take a few hours to enjoy your family’s feast (I know I will!)… but then be sure to get right back to business.

Here’s a good starting point: I’ve got three stellar Hot Jobs for you from JobMonkey’s free database.  There is an opening with the Environmental Protection Agency in Atlanta, a morning anchor job in Illinois, and an association marketing manager position with a wine group in Chicago.  Read on for more information about these assignments.  If none of these jobs fit the bill, be sure to check out the plethora of other free listings at the JobMonkey cool job board.
