I am looking for a junior/beginning-of-career person to work in my core office. While the work of my department – the State & National Group at AARP - is much broader than advocacy (including public education, outreach and engagement) I am particularly interested in finding someone who has worked in the legislative / political space because of the kind of skills, experience and work qualities that are honed in that environment. I need a highly energetic person who consumes information, thinks strategically and can apply knowledge to our work and our issues.
The job will require the ability to work in a fast-paced environment and assignments will vary – including research and analysis, working with various staff across the organization on special projects for my core office, and developing written communications on my behalf.

Please share this with any “stars” that you might have run across, and feel free to direct them to Craig Langford (firstname.lastname@example.org) on my team, who can help them navigate our application process.
I see this as a great opportunity for someone looking to grow and learn, and I will be personally invested in his/her success here. I can also guarantee something he/she cannot get in the Administration or the Hill – a very competitive salary and lots of workforce flexibility. Thanks very much, in advance.
