The Congressional Budget Office is a small nonpartisan agency that provides economic and budgetary analysis to the Congress. The Editorial and Publishing Services unit, which is part of the Management, Business, and Information Services Division, seeks a Visual Information and Production Specialist to help make CBO’s publications clear and accessible to a broad audience.
The specialist will work with staff members throughout the agency on reports, graphics, slide decks, infographics, and presentations. Responsibilities include conceptualizing and precisely executing statistical graphics and data visualizations (such as tables, charts, and graphs) that are aesthetically pleasing; helping in their early development by attending meetings and reviewing drafts to recommend opportunities; and crafting cohesive graphical stories. Responsibilities also include producing publications with FrameMaker, InDesign, Excel, DeltaGraph, Illustrator, and other tools. And because the ways that people obtain information are changing, the specialist will help create new approaches to publishing that focus on the web.
Salary and Benefits
The salary is competitive and will be commensurate with experience, education, and other qualifications. CBO offers excellent benefits and a collegial, respectful work environment.
How to Apply
Please submit a cover letter, résumé, salary history, at least two work samples, and contact information for three references at www.cbo.gov/careers. One of the work samples should consist of tables, charts, or graphs, and one should show ability with laying out a publication. Apply by April 28, 2017, to ensure consideration. Candidates should be prepared to supply additional work samples and references on request. Only complete applications will be considered. This position is covered by the Veterans Employment Opportunities Act of 1998 as made applicable to CBO by the Congressional Accountability Act, as amended.
