Ahh, yes. The time has come again. The smells, sight and sounds are all around you. No, I’m not talking about spiced cider, pumpkins, turning leaves, crisp fall days, or squirrels scurrying to gather nuts for the winter.
It’s the smell of the blood, sweat and tears of candidates in the throes of political ambition, competition, and desperation; the rustle of elected officials and their minions, scurrying through the hallowed halls of government, seeking political favor, casting blame and gathering ammunition to squash their competition. Podiums across America are being dusted off and polished up, along with the images and reputations of many government leaders, to bear witness to a candidate’s credentials as he or she attempts to convince us why they should represent the voice of the people. Republican, Democrat, Independent, liberal, conservative, Green Party, Tea Party or any party in between, the start of the political and election season is underway.
As Americans gear up for another brutal (as much as we may wish it otherwise) election season, it is time once again to don the waders as we navigate our way through the political quagmire of campaign speeches, political promises, baby kissing, lobbyists, fundraising, and lengthy debates. I have caught up on all my old Army Wives episodes, cleared out my DVR, and am ready to fast forward my way through the next 14 months of political ads.
Whatever your political party of choice, there seems to be little doubt that come November 2012, the path to Washington D.C . (and let’s not forget our local legislators) promises to be littered with the unmet political aspirations, hopes and dreams of many a political career. As an act of public service, we felt that, for this edition of Find Work Wednesday, we would focus our attention on career opportunities for our politicians who may find themselves out of a job come November 2012. We are making no predictions as to the future election turnout. But, if American sentiment is the same next year as it is today, we anticipate numerous politicians hitting the want ads. Competition for jobs can be fierce, and, as we job seekers know, it’s never too early to get a head start.
All of this week’s Find Work Wednesday positions and thousands of other positions for military spouses, Veterans, and Military-affiliated applicants can be found at our Job Seeker’s page. The first nine opportunities can be found by clicking on “Search for Openings with MSCCN”. The remaining jobs can be found by clicking on “Search for Job Openings with JobCentral National Labor Exchange.”
