Job Seach Resources Help for Science-y, Communications-y Type Jobs
December 20, 2013 2:00 PM Subscribe
I'm looking for some help finding job search resources for a field that, at least as far as I know, doesn't have a super specific name. I'm interested in looking for communications-y type jobs that are specifically in science-y environments or that work with science-y content. Bonus points for resources specific to Washington, DC or Baltimore.

So far I've been looking at more general job search things like Idealist
, Higher Ed Jobs
, and Jobwonk
. I've also been trying to Google around and find other just neat organizations that I'm familiar with and checking their jobs pages. At least in DC, it seems like a ton of the job search websites are very Hill focused.
I'm currently in the DC area, but for future reference as well, are there other more specialized sources I should be looking at like science communications listservs, LinkedIn groups, DC-based professional associations? What sort of key terms or job titles should I be looking for (things like "communications associate")?
I'm currently early career and working in the communications department at a large association. I like my job- some writing, press releases, building distribution lists, doing lots of coverage analysis and writing reports- but I think I'd be much more professionally satisfied working on projects that are more more in line with my own interests.
