The US Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD is looking for a Skating Director!

Rats! The job was only open for five days and the application deadline closed on 10/10/2010.

Take a look to see the qualifications and expectations; it might reopen if they didn't get many applications.

Alas, if a federal job is only open 5 days (I believe that's the legal minimum it has to be advertised) then that means they already had someone in mind and were looking to minimize the number of applications. Sorry.
