White House ethics advisor

Based upon this article from today’s Washington Post, I was going to write a snarky little piece about the limited job opportunities for ethicists in the White House. There’s one ethics advisor there (though I will bet there are others in the White House Counsel’s office who have a piece of those issues, as well), so as a career path the opportunities are, well, quite limited.

It’s a good article about Norm Eisen and how he works with others in the White House and the cabinet, and here’s the shocker: There are more than 6,000 ethics officials in the federal governent. It turns out that this just might be a good career path for young ethicists!
