Are you neither an economist nor a mom nor a middle-aged budget analyst and yet are strangely drawn to read my blog?
Are you looking for a job, or a better job, and want to get your foot in the door of the federal fiscal policy world?
The Concord Coalition (my employer) is looking to hire a “research assistant”–but I think that job title understates the breadth and depth of this position. This is a paid, full-time (but entry-level) position for someone who loves working on federal budget policy. It entails a lot of responsibility, and at Concord we only hire people who are true “self-starters” and like to hit the ground running and get immersed in everything we do. So if you think there’s a little “geeky budget analyst” as well as “media-and-tech-savvy, creative outreach person” in you–and I’d like to think that any young people who read this blog (for fun?) are a highly-selective sample–then you’re perfect for the job. Here is the link to the page with the job description on Concord’s website. That page also contains the description for interns we’re looking to hire on a part-time basis, interns who would probably spend at least part of their time helping me with this blog and some video blogging I’m supposed to have already started doing. (I’ll be working on my own (EconomistMom) “plea for help” internship description that I hope to post here in the next few days.)
