Environment department looking for new leader

During a down economy, it’s always nice to see a job opening online – particularly when it pays between $131,000 and $167,000 annually.

The San Francisco Department of Environment is now soliciting applications for a new director on its Web site.

The department’s former director, Jared Blumenfeld, resigned from the post in order to head up the federal Environmental Protection Agency’s regional office.

Before you consider the nice salary and think, “Hey, I can do that!” there are two impediments to note:

First, the ad for the position obviously includes a rather long list of qualification requirements. And second, if you do qualify for the post, there’s an issue about job security, as noted in this Examiner report.
