Gracious, this has been a busy week.  If you are in the market for a new government job, then you might want to get your resume into President Elect Obama’s new Chief of Staff, Rahm Emmanuel. 

If working in the White House isn’t in the cards for you, however, read on: I’ve got three great opportunities for you that were culled from JobMonkey’s free job database. And if none of these gigs are right for you, you can conduct your own extensive search on the database.  It is updated daily and has dozens of new jobs every week.

#3. Spring Intern 2009, Time Warner, Syracuse, NY
Several weeks ago, I talked about the importance of college internships in terms of figuring out what you want to do with your life (professionally speaking) and getting a head start on your resume.  If you are currently searching for the right internship opportunity, there are a host of great ones for the spring semester at Time Warner Inc.  Positions include internships with the following departments: Web, News, Sports, Marketing and Operations. Candidates for these highly competitive internships must receive academic credits for the internship assignment; have strong interpersonal, verbal/written communication skills, leadership and organizational abilities; demonstrate an interest in journalism and news; and be able to commit 24 hours per week to the internship.  Applicants with coursework and/or previous internship experience in communications, journalism or related field are preferred.
