I'm a recent master's graduate in Applied Economics (Concentration: Community and Economic Development), and I’m looking for a research position with the government or a consulting firm that performs public policy-related research (e.g. The Urban Institute, Brookings, Pew Research Center, etc.). I've had no luck to this point (been looking for about two months), and I'd like some advice. [more inside]

I'm in the process of applying for entry-level positions at a variety of non-profit/NGO groups in Washington, D.C. At the same time, I'm experiencing the joy of trying to find a D.C. apartment, and it's hard to comit to something without knowing what my salary will be. What is a ballpark starting salary at this type of job? $30,000? More? Less?

I want to thank everyone for their advice on my previous question about getting to DC for an interview. I'm at the next phase of my problem now: I got the job. That's not the problem; starting a week from Monday is. I need an apartment in Washington, DC in... yeah, umm, five days or so. I'm looking up brokers right now, any other options? Good websites? This is my first move ever, so I'm mind-numbingly ignorant about this.
