If you’re looking for a professional challenge, Amtrak just posted a job opening for a “communications lead” in Washington, DC. Don’t live in DC? Like the listing says, “Your success is a train ride away.”

It’s unclear whether this is a recently vacated job (understandable), or whether the transit monopoly is putting together a small army of PR experts after this week’s horrible crash (also understandable). Amtrak promises the position provides “competitive pay,” but unless that pay is exactly one trillion dollars per year then this job is probably not worth the trouble it would require right now.
