***  From Adam Sidel:

 

13.)  Programming Assistant – Special Events (Contract; 3 positions), Brainstorm Creative Resources, Washington, DC.

 

OVERVIEW:

Brainstorm Creative Resources is a recruiting and staffing firm that places creative and editorial professionals into freelance and full-time positions with employers in and around Washington, DC.

 

Please read the job description below and/or visit http://brainstormresources.com/ApplyOnline/ for additional information regarding our firm and currently open positions with our clients.

 

DESCRIPTION:

 

A well-established advocacy and lobbying organization with a focus on international affairs is looking to engage as many as three Programming Assistants with experience working around event production, in on-site, temporary assignments.

 

The three-month engagements will be focused on developing programming for an annual conference that will take place in Washington, DC during the first weekend of March, 2015. The conference welcomes more than ten-thousand participants annually, from all 50 states and all over the world. Guests and speakers include world leaders, among them the President of the United States. It is truly an interesting and exciting event.

 

We are ideally looking for early to mid-career self-starters who bring some relevant practical knowledge of events production, an interest in political and/or international affairs, and a willingness to jump in to help with any relevant task.

 

A general outline of the role includes:

* Assist in the production, coordination, and execution of the annual conference

 

Some specific responsibilities might include:

* Conduct online or offline research

* Project manage the development of scripts, videos and other assets

* Work with team members to develop production timelines

* Contribute to writing of scripts and other materials

* Coordinate rehearsal sessions

* Coordinate onsite A/V

 

While this position is not being offered as a temporary-to-permanent opportunity, and our client has not actively indicated that they are planning to hire early in the new year, the possibility always exists with this growing organization, that they might invite a temporary employee to transition into a full-time role.

 

Brainstorm Creative Resources has supported this client for many years and has helped them identify amazing people for programming / conference-related roles. Several of the individuals we have placed with this organization were hired into full-time positions. The Programming Assistants will work with an existing team of smart, talented and dedicated marketing, communications and events production professionals.

 

HOURS / LOCATION:

 

This is an on-site role. Almost all work will be done at the organization’s offices in NW, DC. The individuals who are offered these positions will be required to work on-site at the organization’s annual conference March 1-3, 2015.

 

We expect the hours for this role to be “normal” — so, at least 40 hours/week on a 9am to 6pm schedule or similar through mid-January. Mid-January through the end of February, this role requires a six-days-per-week commitment. The days immediately leading up to the conference, and during the conference require a can-do attitude and availability to match. Brainstorm pays an overtime rate of time-and-a-half to all employees who work more than 40/hours during any given week.

 

The employer’s offices are easily accessible via car, Metrorail and Metrobus.

 

RATE:

 

We are suggesting a rate range of between $18 and $35/hour, which we believe is in-line with the minimum and maximum position requirements. We would be happy to consider individuals who bring a bit more experience than necessary to the table, but the rate range offered will remain tied to the position requirements.

 

The actual rate offered will be commensurate with your experience and will be largely based on the following factors: credentials as detailed in your resume, your interview experiences with Brainstorm Creative Resources and/or our client, and quality of reference providers and references provided.

 

APPLICATION:

 

Please follow these steps to apply:

1) Visit http://brainstormresources.com/ApplyOnline/.

2) At the top of the page, chose to search jobs in “Any” location.

3) All available opportunities will be listed. Please click on the appropriate position title.

4) Read the Employer Overview and complete Job Description.

5) Apply at the bottom of the page. During the application process please make sure to:

-> Complete your personal profile,

-> Provide answers to all short questionnaires provided,

-> Indicate your specific software application skills,

-> Upload a resume and other documents you consider relevant (work samples, references, etc.).

 

Only candidates currently residing within a commutable distance of Washington, DC should apply. Applicants not currently living in Washington, DC, Maryland or Virginia, or who inquire without a cover letter, resume and/or work samples should not expect to receive a response.

 

Brainstorm Creative Resources and the hiring organization are EEO employers.

23.)  Full-time instructor, non-tenure track position to teach courses in the journalism sequence, Jack Valenti School of Communication, University of Houston, Houston, Texas

 

The Jack J. Valenti School of Communication, University of Houston, invites applications for a full-time instructor, non-tenure track, to teach courses in the journalism sequence beginning in fall 2015. The instructor will teach courses in reporting and writing with an emphasis on multimedia storytelling and digital journalism. The instructor will prepare student journalists to publish stories in the student newspaper and work closely with the Houston Chronicle and the student internship program. Significant professional journalism experience is greatly valued. Previous teaching experience is highly desired. A successful candidate must have a master’s degree in a related field.

 

Approximately 360 of the 1,800 majors specialize in print or broadcast journalism, another 370 specialize in media production, and 15 graduate students are pursuing a concentration in mass communications.

 

The Valenti School prides itself for its role in working with a diverse student population. Our student majors are 23 percent African-American, 21 percent Latino, 9 percent Asian-American and 3 percent international. The University of Houston strives to develop a deep understanding of and respect for diversity among students and colleagues. Therefore, we welcome candidates who may contribute to the diversity in the Valenti School and the University of Houston.

 

The University of Houston is the flagship campus of a state-assisted system that enrolls 50,000 students in a vibrant city, which has a world-class Medical Center, a robust arts community, professional sports and destination commercial shopping centers. Houston is known as a world capital for petroleum exploration, the headquarters location for multi-national corporations, and an international hub for shipping, railroad and aerospace activity. The university and the city encourage an entrepreneurial approach to new technologies – especially biotechnology – and are receptive to creative communication solutions in an urban environment. The Chronicle of Higher Education named the University of Houston as one of the best places to work in 2011, and U.S. News & World Report listed UH as the No. 2 most racially/ethnically diverse university in the nation. UH has been designated by the Carnegie Foundation as a Tier One public research university.

About Teach For All

 

Around the world, the neighborhoods in which children are born largely determine the kind of education they’ll receive and, ultimately, their options in life. Globally, 250 million children lack the skills necessary to read, write, or perform basic mathematics. This educational inequity is a global problem that affects us all—perpetuating poverty, fueling prejudice, and weakening economies. Teach For All is working to change this. A world of expanding educational opportunity and decreasing disparities is a more prosperous, peaceful, and sustainable world where more children are able to fulfill their dreams. Because education is a shared global value, we are working together to improve it across country lines.

 

Teach For All is a growing network of 35 independent partner organizations with a shared vision of expanding educational opportunity in their countries. Each partner recruits and develops leaders to teach in their nations’ most high-need classrooms and to work throughout their lives to increase opportunity for children. At Teach For All we believe that leadership is the key to transforming education and—ultimately—kids’ futures. The teachers and alumni of the organizations in the Teach For All network are leaders for change in classrooms, schools, education systems, and communities.

 

Similarities in the nature of educational inequity from place to place lead to shareable solutions. Teach For All works to accelerate partners’ progress and increase their impact by drawing on the network’s knowledge base and sharing the innovations continuously emerging from across the globe. Teach For All adds value through capturing and spreading knowledge, fostering direct connections and learning across the network, accessing global resources for the benefit of the whole, and contributing to the leadership development of staff, participants, and alumni.

 

Together, Teach For All programs around the world are working to ensure that one day, all children—everywhere—can attain an excellent education.
