Exciting Job Post: working to get Olympics to Chicago and work in the Parks Program

I rarely post job openings, but I thought this one was pretty neat, as well as a great opportunity.

As some of you are aware, I am “on loan” to the Chicago Park District (CPD) from DePaul University in the position of Chief Program Officer (CPO). I am working with Mayor Daley’s Office to secure the Olympic bid while overseeing all 6000 programs and 4000 program staff for the city’s park system.

I’m in the process of recruiting and hiring a Professional Development Manager for the District. I see this as an excellent opportunity for a Ph.D., ABD or M.S. who is interested in applying their teaching, research, and problem solving skills in one of the worlds largest urban park and recreation systems. I have attached and pasted below the job description. However, there will be a great deal of flexibility beyond the job description, as governmental job descriptions are written with little creativity.

Please share this with friends, colleagues, and students who may interested in this opportunity. Feel free to apply for the position by August 7, 2009 at: http://www.chicagoparkdistrict.com/ Click on jobs, go to Professional Development Manager. If you have questions, I can be reached at: dan.hibbler@chicagoparkdistrict.com
or 312-742-4868.
