Happy Birthday to Tom Lundquist who is 19 this Nov. 15!

Welcome to the free Job of the Week e-mail networking newsletter for
professional communicators.  JOTW is a cooperative service that relies
on the contributions of its members, like you.  We share job
opportunities, news and information about the job market, as well as
swapping stories about life's peculiarities.

First of all, it doesn't cost you a cent.  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 friends can sign up by sending a blank e-mail
to
JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.  It's free for them, too.

Send this copy of JOTW to a fellow communicator and urge them to get
their own subscription by sending a blank e-mail to
JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.

The JOTW is an award winning publication:http://www.newcommblogzine.com/?p=576

I never give out, rent, or sell my list, and neither does Topica.

I work as an intern for the Walton Group in Provo Utah, BYU headquarters

I graduate with a Bachelor's in Communication in April of '07, and will
be looking for work in the Search Engine Optimization area of PR.  I

It’s time we had a cool graphic identity for the JOTW network and the

Hi!
 
Over the weekend I met Larry at Fern's Country Store in Carlisle when we
stopped in for coffee…he said he's a friend of yours.  He pointed me
to your newsletter and I just signed up.  I'm a freelance writer and I'm
building my home business now and seeking new clients…but I don't know
if it's appropriate to network through your newsletter somehow.  Do
people put notes like that in it?  Thanks!!! 
 
I loved this:
 
My door is mishapen
Because the floor is uneven
because the house is old
and perhaps the foundation is not firm
I know this
Because the bright sun sneaks under the door to welcome me
 
Where is that from?

(I have a one paragraph pitch.  I run one -and only one – each issue,
always first.  You can say whatever you want about yourself.  BTW, if
you had mentioned JOTW at Fern’s, your coffee would have been on the
house.  I wrote that poem in the upstairs bathroom of my mother’s house
in Auburndale, Mass., two weeks ago.  Note – Larry tells me you took
pictures and posted them to your blog.  Making a connection is exciting.
 Making a deep and meaningful connection is incredible.  And look,
there’s that poem.

***  From Ken Jensen:

Captain,
The 60 Minutes piece on ship stripping at Chittagong (phonetic spelling
only) was interesting in light of the many piracy incidents reported in
your weekly report. (My bad luck that there was not a report from there
this week to aid my spelling.) The piece was a grim show and tell about
the work that goes on there.
Seems likely to me that some of the same workers doing the ship
stripping (say that three times fast) are among those doing the pirating
in their off hours. Is there another reason for ships to visit the port
other than to meet their demise? Is it a port of commerce?
There's a movie about modern-day piracy just waiting to be produced.
Ken Jensen

(I don’t know much about Chittagong, other than the ship breaking that
goes on there is done manually, with no regard to safety or the
environment.  It’s work, but it has to be a death sentence.  I talked to
a master of a heavy lift ship at the Diego Garcia anchorage who told me
of one voyage where he took some ship to India for disposal.  I’m not
sure if it was Chittagong or not.  He said it went against everything he
had ever been taught or practiced to line his ship up on a course that
took it straight for the beach, and ran the ship aground to be cut up. 
He and the skeleton then had to find their way to someplace they could
catch a flight home.  I’ve been into Kaoshiung where dozens of ships
were at anchor, awaiting their turn to be cut up.  It’s eerie.  I was at
the huge SMM show in Hamburg a few years back and gentlemen who had a
small shipyard in Latvia.  “You need to do work?  PCBs?  No problem. 
Asbestos?  No problem.  Environment okay.  Our shipyard no problem.”)

The 60 Minute piece was pretty true to your description except it had
video to confirm how grim the place is, including the death sentence for
workers. Perhaps being a pirate there is less hazardous. The piece even
showed a Russian ship being run aground. The captain and a few crew
members were rowed ashore — or at least to a shallow place where they
could wade the rest of the way through the filthiest water I have ever
seen. The 60 Minute crew went aboard the ship before the grounding and
showed the interior, which looked like the crew just left in the middle
of what ever they were doing when the bell rang. There was even food on
the stoves in the galley.

A local environmental attorney was interviewed, but she seemed resigned
to the fact that if she gets her way, the business will go elsewhere and
thousands of workers will be on the beach and out of work.

***  From Sachin Shah:

Ned,

Is there a list similar to JOTW for writer/editor jobs?  I'm of two
minds about getting back into PR, because what I enjoy most is writing. 
I will probably post a note about getting back into PR at some point in
the future, but I thought I would ask about a Writer/Editor JOTW. 

Maybe I'll have to start one!

Thanks for all the work you do.  Your award is a sign of our
appreciation.

Sachin Shah

(JOTW is such a list.)

True… I've even posted such jobs before. 🙂

Just wanted to check on other resources.

Cheers,

need.)

I have “tons of fun” finding JOTW mistakes too, particularly the
spelling and grammar errors.  And the fact that many of them are made by
“professional” communicators is rather sad.

***  From Robert Holland, ABC:

Before Nelly of Michigan State University asks a community of 10,000
communication professionals to respond to her questions about the PR
profession, I suggest that she learn how to write a better e-mail or at
least check her spelling and sentence structure. This bit of advice will
serve her well as she explores a communication career.

***  From Dave Orman:

Ned: Glad to see that Angela Coward, the November 6 starting pitcher,
has her gamete covered as she searches for some new jeans.  –Dave Orman

*** From Molly Badgett:

I'm so curious: Was Annette Coward's word, “gamete” (in the One
Paragraph Pitch) an intended pun, having been in the agriculture biz? Or
do you suppose she meant, “gamut”?

 /ˈgæmit, gəˈmit/ Pronunciation Key -    
gam‧ete Show Spelled Pronunciation[gam-eet, guh-meet]
Pronunciation Key – Show IPA Pronunciation

    –noun Biology a mature sexual reproductive cell, as a sperm or egg,
that unites with another cell to form a new organism. 

Pretty funny…
 
Molly

***  From Dean Kaupe:

Don’t you cover the gamut? I don’t know nothin’ ‘bout birthin’ no
babies, but I could swear gametes have something to do with the
reproductive process. According to my doctor we were all gametes once,
so I guess covering the gamete is some sort of birth control device.

— Dean

***  One word in the One Paragraph Pitch:

Lord Ned can we change this I was just talking short and sweet didn’t
catch this…

Broadcasters develop a couple of habits that need to be changed to make
a successful transition to PR or Marketing (or any other field that
involves a lot of the written word).  Specifically, we 1) write the way
we speak, and 2) ignore spelling (after all, in radio and TV, it’s more
about pronunciation).
 
Your OPP has several run-on sentences, is far too casual to appeal to
hiring managers with positions that deal in the written word, and has
one (rather hysterically) misused word. A “gamete” is “a mature sexual
reproductive cell, as a sperm or egg, that unites with another cell to
form a new organism” (from “Dictionary.com”) The word you meant is
“gamut” which means “the full range”.  This also ties in with Rule #2,
above.

Annette Coward

(Annette sent this a short while later)

Ned, if you can fix this I would appreciate it, it was a simple typo I
was trying to fix and it went before I could correct, since I have
people like … Mellissa sending me e-mails like this , I really don’t
think this was necessary….

“You have got to be kidding. gamete?????????????????????????????
It's called gamut, dummy,l and we don't want illiterates like you in the
business. Or as you would say,bidnits. 

oh, and by the way, it isn't their, it's there. 
Ibid. And I KNOW you don't know what that means. 
lololololoolololoplooolololololololl
You may not appreciate it, but it's real. I want only intelligent and
well-educated people in this incredibly sensitive business. Or maybe it
only used to be. 

***  From Carl Dombek:

Ned and my fellow JOTW professionals –
 
Last week’s OPP was unfortunate on several levels. Apparently some of
the responses the writer received were equally unfortunate.
 
At least one person chose to excoriate this person, calling her a
“dummy” and “illiterate.” While some criticism was certainly justified,
such outright rudeness is unproductive, unprofessional, and unnecessary.
 
Are our collective memories so short that we don’t remember when we
needed a coach or a mentor? Have we forgotten the Golden Rule, karma,
“what goes around, comes around,” or whatever other name you choose to
give that universal principle? Finally, have we forgotten our mothers’
advice, “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all”?
 
Stephen Covey’s fifth habit is, “Seek first to understand.”  The woman
spent 11 years in broadcasting, where pronunciation is important but
spelling (except for the TV Chyron operator) matters not a whit. That
may be too charitable, or it may be precisely the reason for her errors.
 
While her long-term career direction may well lead her away from the
field of communication, it would be far better for our collective
reputation if we communicators worked to build each other up instead of
tearing down.

***  Scouting for Food: The Sorted Truth

We collected about 20,000 pounds of food on Saturday.  Various troops
around Springfield brought donated food to ECHO in Springfield.  John
Ray told me they were down to 2,000 pounds, and he routinely distributes
2,000 pounds a week, so “the larder was bare.”  ECHO recently underwent
a major renovation and expansion.  Unfortunately, business is brisk.  We
had quite a production line going, separating cans from non canned
items, then separating cans into soups, vegetables, fruit, etc.  There
was the occasional opened bottle of maple syrup that slowed the line. 
Some people donate some funky things.  I believe they must figure “I
don’t want to ever eat this, but if somebody is starving they might.” 
Somebody donated a bag of flower bulbs and a sack of dirt.  Another
person donated a bag of acorn caps.  That one has me stumped altogether.

***  From Dr. Ed Whitman:

The American Balalaika Symphony will be presenting its second concert of
the 2006-2007 season at Northern Virginia Community College's
Schlesinger Arts Center Saturday evening, 18 November, at 7:30 P.M.  The
orchestra will be performing a varied program of light music, including
a set of pieces dedicated to the Peter Trofimenko and the ABS by
contemporary French-Canadian composer J. Chatillon, and the Suite in
Retro Style by Soviet composer V. Vekker. 
 
Founded in 2001 in northern Virginia, the American Balalaika Symphony is
essentially a mid-sized symphony orchestra in which the traditional
bowed string instruments of the violin family are replaced by plucked
counterparts from the Russian balalaika and domra families.  The
ensemble continues the tradition of the great Russian balalaika
orchestras of the late 19th century, but our repertoire includes Russian
and Ukrainian folk music, Soviet-era compositions for balalaika
symphony, and arrangements of well-known classical works. The ABS has
grown to include 65 instrumentalists – ranging from rank amateurs (like
me) to conservatory graduates – and it is one of only about ten
full-fledged balalaika orchestras in the United States.   
 
In addition to music by Chatillon and Vekker, we will be presenting
works by Glinka, Prokofiev, and Asafiev, plus two long-time favorites –
Frenkel’s Chase and the high-spirited “Dance” from Glebov’s Polesskaya
Suite. 
       
Please consider joining us for unique evening of music making.  The
Schlesinger Auditorium is conveniently located near the interesection of
Route 395 South and Seminary Road, and a large parking garage is
available on site.  Purchased before the event, tickets are $20 each for
the concert (with a $15 student, senior, and group rate). To order
tickets, see our website,
www.balalaika.biz, or contact me directly – ecwhitman@aol.com or 301-983-3717.

“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will
flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their
own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will
drop off like autumn leaves.”
 ~ John Muir

I wonder why I like to look
at a lone leaf atop a tree in autumn
more than a tree full of them in summer
