***  One Paragraph Pitch:

My name is Annette Coward, and boy you talk about covering the gamete, I
started out in Agriculture, but the Lord always has a way of bringing
you back to your gift, from landing a position with the Department of
Agriculture I was persuaded to take an interest in Journalism by a dear
friend and mentor. Hence I started a radio program for farmers and a
newsletter, next thing I knew I was off to University of Missouri to
obtain an Ag journalism degree with an emphasis in the broadcasting
sequence at the age of 34.  I've been extremely blessed. I'm currently a
TV host/Pr Marketing/freelance reporter from time to time in Middle
Georgia. I've had quite an exciting last 11 years but now I'm looking
for relocation to the MD. VA, D.C. area.  I would like to relocate in

Hello Ned,
 
This is the first time I'm writing to you.
 
Firstly, I'd like to congratulate you about the award and the success of
your network.

I'm from India, who recently moved to Illinois to marry my true-blue
American fiancé. Before I quit, my boss in India told me about you and
your network, and suggested that I subscribe, which I quickly did. I
have 11 years of experience in corporate communications, and an eagle's
eye for proofreading. I notice mistakes in hymn sheets in church, and on
news tickers on CNN and Fox News.

I also wanted to let you know that I don't get regular mails about the
job of the week. I have now added yours and the JOTW address to my
address list, so that the mails come to me regularly. Could you please
ensure that JOTW's weekly emails come to me?

Thanks a ton and congrats again!!!

Nicola Wattles

(You must have tons of fun finding mistakes in JOTW.  And if you get the
short announcements from me, then you are on the list.  I hope you can

Ed,

Congratulations.  I was amazed at your survey results!  Also, I know
lots of people are suggesting what you can/should do with your JOTW
newsletter, and some might include adding revenue producing items.
However, I for one am a big believer in the adage “If it isn't
broke….”, and your newsletter certainly isn't broke.  Keep it going as
it is, and keep doing the good work!

***  Why the JOTW policy?

I wasn't aware of this policy.  May I ask why JOTW has such a policy?  I
will talk to our membership department to see if we have such items.  We
used to have some canvas bags, but I believe we discarded those.  I'll
double check. 

Is this request because I am new to the JOTW network? 

Please advise,
J.

(“The recommended, optional, suggested JOTW policy that asks people who
submit listings on behalf of their employer to consider maybe possibly
sending a company hat, mug or shirt to JOTW, maybe, perhaps.”  It's a
suggested policy.  Optional.  Because I do something for nothing.  It
helps people understand they are getting real value at no cost.)

***  Media training kit challenges conventional wisdom
New from the IABC Knowledge Centre:

Media Training with Excellence: A Balanced Approach is a comprehensive
training kit to help you develop and deliver effective media
spokesperson training for your organization and/or clients. Authored by
Eric Bergman, ABC, APR, MC, this innovative program is based on the

kit is based on a new balanced approach that will help readers look
beyond the traditional principles of media training.
Media Training with Excellence provides everything you need to sharpen
your perspective and improve your facilitation skills so that you can,
in turn, train internal or external clients to deal effectively with
print and broadcast reporters.
The toolkit includes:
– An exploration of the theory behind the method.
– Ready-to-use surveys and worksheets.
– A supplemental booklet, At Ease With the Media.
– Tips on how to best deliver the training.
Available 1 November. Now taking pre-orders.

***  From Jim Parsons: 

Red Auerbach must have had an affinity for cavernous sports arenas.  I
operate the scoreboard at GW (Red was an alumn), and would sometimes see
him in the bowels of the Smith Center playing raquetball with his buds. 
Not bad for a +80-year-old.

Speaking of GW, here's a JOTW shout-out to Mike Sorohan–will this be
the year you finally show up to cheer on your fellow Kent State alum?

JP

***  What kind of jobs?

I am only sending you PR kinds of jobs and not plain writing kinds of
jobs, with the assumption that you do not want the latter. Am I correct?

JL

(What is a plain writing kind of job?  JOTW is not about PR.  It's about
communicating.  I think there is a difference.)

***  SM is unhappy.

UNSUBSCRIBE PLEASE PER JOB #64  JOTW 44-2006.

(The Topless Sportscaster listing, which was taken from the Levine
Business News E-Lert newsletter, was provided for levity.  I'll repeat
it here to make sure I offend those who may have missed it last week:

Topless female sports news caster needed for a photo shoot. Must be well
spoken, well-rounded and very dependable! Sports knowledge a big plus,
but not a must. Casting@ToplessSportsNews.com.

Just follow the instructions in your newsletter if you don't want the
newsletter any more.  Are you upset because of that listing that came
from another source, and added for levity?  Go ahead and tell me the
truth…I
can take it.)

Hi Ned,
I thought it was very inappropriate and devalued the integrity of your
Newsletter and probably offended other women who don't appreciate
humorous sexual innuendos as very professional.   I appreciate your
noting that it came from “another source” instead of you… Whew!  I
don't think I would have posted it.

(Then you should be offended by the people who posted the ad, or Michael
Levine, who put it in his newsletter.  Since when has my newsletter had
integrity?  Maybe I have it and don't even know it.  So, are you
abandoning me?)

No.

I'm not sure how you heard about our job position, but we were listed as
job listing #15 in your October 23rd email.  The job title is listed as
Director of Membership & Business Development which is INCORRECT.  The
position is Membership & Business Development Coordinator.  Can you
please change the title listed on your website so as to avoid any
further confusion? We've already had a few candidates that were

***  I found this on the RAND website.  Interesting (to me at least):

2. Can I talk with someone to learn more about the job?

We discourage this practice, since we don't have enough personnel to
handle inquiries. However, we have made every effort to make our job
descriptions as clear and comprehensive as possible. If you review the
job description for the position you're interested in, you'll probably
find that it answers most of your questions.

3. Can I arrange an informational interview?

We don't give informational interviews, since we don't have enough
personnel to handle such interviews effectively. However, if you check
our web site, you'll find a wealth of information about RAND, including
our history, organizational structure, and current “hot topics” on our
research agenda.

***  Tom and I slept out in Front Royal this weekend for the Venture
Hike-o-Ree.  We started planning a few weeks ago with four adults and
nine youth and ended up with just four adults (not the same four we
started with).  But it was supposed to be a clear November weekend in
the Shenandoah, so we went.  It was very cold Friday night, into single
digits according to the official Hike-o-Ree meteorologist.  I kept the
water jug in my tent so it wouldn't freeze.  I did leak, however, and we
had a puddle on Saturday morning.  I took the jug out and went to clean
up the water.  When I came back it was already frozen and I was able to
dust the mess out of the tent.

We hiked the along the Sugarloaf trail, the Appalachian Trail, and over
Hogback Mountain (the hard part of the hike).  It was a glorious autumn
day, the kind that P. D. James would say “occur more frequently in
memory than in life,” with spectacular views over the Shenandoah Valley.

***  The SNCR Awards Dinner and Symposium:

My flight from Dulles to Boston was easy.  Check-in through security
wasn't too difficult, and the many improvements at Dulles will soon make
the mobile lounges a thing of the past.  I arrived at Logan on time, and
shuttled over to Airport Station on the T's Blue Line.  A train had just
left the station and had stopped just past the end of the platform.  In
fact, it was getting plenty of attention from MBTA people in orange
vests and radios.  One of them told me that it would be a while before
the trains would be running again, and that we passengers waiting at the
platform would have to take a bus to another station up the line.  I
crossed back over the tracks and asked the station manager what bus we
should take, when one of the men in the orange vests with a radio came
up and said quietly “Call Transit Police and EMS.”  I jumped on one of
the airport shuttles and left eventually for maverick Station, the next
station inbound, as fire engines, ambulances, and police cars swarmed
the station.  We're lucky our bus could get out, and heard over the
radio that another bus behind us was blocked by emergency vehicles. 
When we got to Maverick Station, many airport and outbound passengers
who were stranded there were anxious and tried to jump aboard our bus as
we were trying to get out, as if it was the last plane out of Saigon. 
What was the delay?  Wire problems.http://news.bostonherald.com/localRegional/view.bg?articleid=165290

I met with Adrienne Monley for coffee then proceeded across the street
to the Colonnade Hotel for the Society of new Communications Research
awards dinner. I didn't know anyone except Katie Paine, who remembered
me from some recent conference (the one she spoke at and I chaired) but
she goes to so many conferences she could remember which one).  I did
meet two subscribers, and it was nice to hear them explain the network
to others.  The dinner was very nice.  The conference was interesting
since I really don't know much about blogs, wikis, etc.  It seemed that
most of the conference attendees were using their laptops to read
e-mails, check air schedules, and challenge presenters by running google
searches on whatever the speaker was talking about.

I had a 6:50 flight back to Washington on Thursday, so I left the hotel
just a few minutes before 4.  I immediately caught a Green Line car at
Prudential and took it to Government Center and changed for the Blue
Line, which came along right away.  I grabbed the D Terminal bus at
Airport station, zipped up to the check-in line just behind the
Northeastern University Women's volleyball team
(http://www.gonu.com/volleyball/).  I was early, so I tried to standby
for an earlier flight.  Since the 4:40 hadn't left, I hurried to the
gate and tried to board that flight with a new departure time of 5:05,
but didn't succeed.  I next tried to get on the 6:05 flight.  I had a
757 on the 6:50 flight, and the 6:05 was a smaller Regional Jet.  But I
figured getting a head start was worth the slight reduction in corfort
of flying in a more cramped aircarft.  I was the last passenger boarded.
 Then we had to wait because there was a mechanical problem.  The
mechanic returned with duct tape to fix the problem.  After the mechanic
signed off the maintenance log we could get on our way, but that was
after the 6:50 flight had left, and we didn't get into Dulles until much
later than I had planned or hoped for.  On the way off the airplane I
inspected the duct tape repair for myself.

***  Let's help Nelly out with some feedback about what we do as
professional communicators:

Hello, my name is Nelly Tomas and I am a student at Michigan State
University. I am exploring careers in Public Relations and I stumbled
across your site.

I was hoping if you knew of any Public Relations people that I could
interview via email? I was only asking because of your site had so many
career jobs that related to Public Relations, Communication and ect.  I
would greatly appreciate if you could have one person in mind who is
willing to do a email interview of questions about the job (public
relations)

The questions I would be asking would be:
1. The nature of work
2. The required skills
3. The required education
4. Salary
5. The outlook

These are the broad questions I would be asking but more detailed. If
you know of anyone who is willing to do an interview, that would be
great.

Thank you and I do hope to hear from you soon.

Facts about the new Mistra-supported Research Centre

Mistra's grant of 205 million SEK in total will be distributed over a
period of 12 years. All in all, the Centres´ budget is expected to be 44
million SEK per year once it is up and running. The Centre will be led
by an international board, and it will have several hundred researchers
from a wide range of disciplines within the natural sciences, social
sciences and humanities tied to it.

The Centre will conduct internationally leading research on how human
welfare and robust ecosystems can co-develop, as well as serving as a
platform for dialogue with politicians, authorities and resource users
at a local, regional and international level; emphasis will be placed on
the dissemination of information and communication through different
media.

The Centre's research will contribute answers to questions of the future
such as: How can human societies – from a local to international level –
be organized in order to meet future climate change? How can we reform
agriculture so that there is enough food for a growing population? How
should networks of marine reserves be shaped in order to secure the
world's future fisheries? How do we decrease the level of vulnerability
in the megacities of today and tomorrow?

Already today, CTM, SEI, and the Beijer Institute are conducting
internationally leading research within these areas and have
well-developed collaborations with a large number of successful
universities and research institutes. Through Mistra's contribution,
this work can be intensified and hopefully contribute to substantial
progress on sustainable development for the world.

be in a position to help you, or someone else like you.
 
How does it work?  If you find out about a job opportunity
in communications, send it to me (lundquist989@cs.com), and I'll share
it with the JOTW network.  It's that simple.  And we share dozens of
opportunities each week.  Did I mention it was free?

Your cooperation is requested.  Please send job opportunities to share
with all JOTW members to lundquist989@cs.com.

To subscribe, or to add a new e-mail address for your subscription, send
a blank e-mail to:

To unsubscribe: JOTW-unsubscribe@topica.com.

To change your address, do both.  I can't do it for you.
 
You are welcome to distribute this to fellow communicators.  You are
