Connecting You to Jobs That Make a Difference
More than 20 years ago, Brad Traverse started to compile job leads for policy and public relations positions in order to connect his job-hunting friends with new employment opportunities in Washington, D.C. Originally sent as a weekly email, the number of subscribers and leads grew until it became difficult to manage as his hobby and the number of jobs was so big that the list became hard to use. In 2006, he and his wife Fraser recognized this unmet need and launched the first-ever online political and PR job search database, so members could access new job leads on a daily basis and easily search for employment opportunities using category and keyword functions.
