State Department seeks blogger

Government jobs are for clock-watching drones, in it for the pension.  Bloggers post from the basement in their pajamas, avoiding the responsibilities of a real job.

Neither stereotype was ever fair, and each is less accurate now than ever.  Anyone who doubts it should check out a current job opening over in Foggy Bottom.

The State Department is seeking a GS-13 blogger for its Bureau of International Information Programs.  It is a permanent position focused on bringing subject-matter experts into State’s “digital diplomacy” efforts, through “blogs, web chats, and online discussion.”  And a Secret security clearance is required.

Would-be bloggers had better move fast, however. The position’s open period ends Sept. 13.
