GBN is looking to hire one or two more research assistants, and what better
way to find talented, intelligent young people than to tap into our
remarkable network, so we're asking for your referrals if you think you
know someone that might fit the job. This position would begin in August
1998 and require a two year committment. I've posted the job description

position will as well. It does, however, offer opportunities to learn from
working with the scenario planning consultants, do research and writing and
be exposed to much information and the GBN network.
If you know of anyone interested in the position please have them send
