2. Nurse (Operating Room)
There are few roles with higher stakes than an operating room nurse. If you want to do serious, important work, however, you should see this Defense Department (DoD) opening Bethesda, Maryland. Joining DoD’s Defense Health Agency (DHA), you’ll be stationed at the renowned Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. The facility stays open 24/7, so be prepared for potentially unusual hours before working here. Walter Reed additionally has 20 operating room suites covering multiple surgical services, so a thirst for variety may also help with this position. Click here to view this job.

4. Chief Information Security Officer
The chief information security officer (CISO) slot is a professional persona that’s increasingly important to agencies. The Health and Human Services Department (HHS) is no exception, and its Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) component has a vacancy in Atlanta. If you’re selected, you’ll help develop, deploy and monitor a comprehensive cybersecurity program across CDC’s various organizational units.

Much like CISOs, becoming a chief operating officer (COO) is a significant undertaking. With that in mind, the Army Corps of Engineers is seeking one in St. Paul, Minnesota. Once you’ve become part of the St. Paul District, Operations Division’s team, you’ll play a big part in the region’s water resource projects. Overall, the work you do will impact people in Minnesota and parts of Wisconsin, North and South Dakota and Iowa before reaching the rest of America.
