Towards the end of my search, I canceled subscriptions for the other sites as I realized that my best resource hands-down was www.bradtraverse.com. Brad has built an amazing resource with the best jobs in the Washington, DC area presented in a format that truly makes the search easier. Thank you, Brad!

WHO IS BRAD TRAVERSE?
Brad Traverse has more than 25 years of experience in government relations, public policy and executive management. His career includes seven years as executive director of a national trade association, five years managing the lobbying activities of a Fortune 100 manufacturing company, and six years as a legislative aide for two U.S. Senators. He has built a strong record and solid reputation both on and off Capitol Hill as a knowledgeable and highly respected member of the government affairs and public policy world, particularly in the field of healthcare.
Brad started compiling job leads more than 15 years ago as a way to connect his job-hunting friends with employee-seeking colleagues in Washington, D.C., and to share leads on often unpublished positions. Originally sent as a weekly email, the number of subscribers and leads grew and grew until it became impossible to manage by webmail. In 2006, he created this website so his members could have access to new leads on a daily basis and so they could more easily search for jobs using the category and keyword functions. Today, Brad has more than 3,000 leads posted on his site, with none more than two months old. He runs the business with his wife, Fraser Traverse, who handles the customer service, technology and book-keeping side of things.
Fraser Traverse has a broad range of experience in both the public and private sector. She has earned a reputation as a skilled writer and proofreader. Fraser worked as a legislative aide in the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. She also served as a press secretary in the U.S. House. She was director of marketing at a national manufacturing association, and was an account manager at two public relations firms in Washington, D.C. Most recently, she served as the publications and news writer for a top private school in Alexandria, Virginia. In addition to her professional work, she has lent her expertise in communications, marketing and financial organization to several boards and committees in the local community.
