LAST CALL: Dear whomever, I'd like to work for you

If the current economic slowdown has you rethinking your future,

here's a career path you might not have considered: go to work for a

Senator or Representative. A recent issue of Roll Call, the twice-weekly

paper that covers Capitol Hill, carried three ads for congressional

public affairs positions.

Specifically, one ad was from a 'Democratic Member of Congress' who

advertised for a communications director, with an incredibly detailed

job spec - similar to the picky spec demanded by the ad for a press

secretary in the same field.

Less important, however, was political ideology. The ads offer no

indication of who is placing them - just a box to which you can respond.

Never will a more neutrally worded application letter have been written,

we're sure.
