Posting for Josh Zive...

The Policy Resolution Group (PRG), the team of government relations and strategic communication professionals within Bracewell & Giuliani LLP, has created an innovative approach towards doing our policy work.  We have adopted a “bullpen” strategy that requires us to hire at least one skilled researcher and writer who will work with our team on doing policy analysis and research, drafting of advocacy documents, drafting of press releases, and similar tasks. Scott and Segal and I, both former debaters, believe this to be a position very well-suited for former college debaters who may be looking for something to do for a year or two in DC.
 
We would very much like to receive some resumes from former debaters who may be interested in this job.  It could be a nice bridge job between undergrad and law school or a job on Capitol Hill, etc.   
 
A formal description of the job is below.  Please have any interested persons submit resumes to me at Joshua.Zive@bgllp.com.
