Over my 6 years in DC, Brad Traverse
again and again proved to be a highly
effective one stop shop for personal job
searching and my hiring needs. One
shouldn't look for work or try to hire
without Brad Traverse's help.

This page provides information about the types of job leads available on this site. You must subscribe to view the actual leads.
All jobs are located in the Washington-Baltimore metro area, unless otherwise indicated. Also, unless otherwise indicated, all government jobs are more than likely federal (e.g., "Dept. of Transportation" means "U.S. Dept. of Transportation").
Please remember that we are only passing these leads along and are not in any way involved in filling the positions.
If you are looking for a job in a specific industry, with a special focus, or with a narrow job title, be sure to search by keyword in the box provided at the top of the job leads page and use the pull-down menu to narrow down the job type. Or use the advanced search function to search by employer, date or more complex keywords strings.
When using the advanced search function, you can create a Job Alert. When jobs meeting your search criteria are posted, you will receive a daily email with their titles.
New job leads are added on a daily basis. Again, they can be searched by keyword and sorted by job type.
