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 (firstname.lastname@example.org), 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 JOTWemail@example.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 JOTWfirstname.lastname@example.org.

*** One Paragraph Pitch:
I work as an intern for the Walton Group in Provo Utah, BYU headquarters and Mormon ville USA. 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 maintain my school's newspaper website, www.netxnews.net, the Walton Group website, www.thewaltongroupinc.com, and the blog for CEO of the company, Linda Walton. Being from North Dakota I have a healthy respect for severe weather and hard work, both of which shaped me into who I am today, along with my wife and little baby.
It’s time we had a cool graphic identity for the JOTW network and the JOTW newsletter. Something that looks good on a webpage and on a polo shirt. Anyone want to volunteer? Maybe we could have a competition, and we can vote on the one everyone likes best (I get the final vote).
*** From Faye Rapoport:
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
(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.
Perhaps you are overcome with this “helpful” information, but wanted you to know that the link for 16 in JOTW 45-2006) doesn't work.
Always enjoy the email- Janet

*** This was my first car (318…without the gaudy stripes or decals, but the color, vinyl roof and interior are spot on).
Yep, I did figure out why the JOTW mails were not reaching me, soon after I emailed you. DUH, on my part!
Thanks : -)
Nicola (What was the reason?)
At first, I sent an email to subscribe to the JOTW newsletter. I would get emails on and off …. but not the job listings on a regular basis.
Then I went to Topica website, and registered as a member, providing details about my name, gender, date of birth, password, etc.
I presume that must have helped.

Congratulations on your award!

Hope all is well with you. Jayanti
(Must one rake a leaf to be plagued by them?)
*** 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.
*** Making connections:
If your new JOTWer wants to get in touch with other communicators in the Chicago area, have her get in touch with me. I'm a member of both PRSA and IABC here, and can help her get her networks established.
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.
(JOTW is such a list.)
True… I've even posted such jobs before. 🙂
Just wanted to check on other resources.
(I put all my effort into making this the only resource anyone will ever need.)
*** From Jim Parsons:
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.
Go Hokies! JP
*** 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.
*** 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.
*** 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 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.
*** Concludes Ned:
“The errors hardest to condone in other people are one's own.”
– Piet Hein
*** A matter of degrees:
I just had to comment on the position description for Loyola's full-time faculty availability. It says, “… must have a terminal degree…”; my first reaction was, does that mean it's a job to die for?
*** Brian Pittman at the Bulldog Reporter writes about my friend Eric Bergman, ABC, APR, MC:
*** I was walking out of the Pentagon last Thursday, heading to the IABC meeting. I noticed a portrait taped to the guard post that checks people coming into the Pentagon. I looked to see who it was. It was the new SECDEF. Guess the guards want to be sure they recognize the new boss.
*** Ed Kavanaugh shot a 7 under. I ended up at par:
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.
*** He’s hooked:
Ned, After only one issue of JOTW I am hooked! Keep up the good work, and keep showing off the benefits of a liberal-arts education by virtue of your insightful commentary and literary allusions. I am counting the hours until my next issue arrives. Terry Meehan
*** From KD:
Just getting caught up on past issues:
Director of Public Affairs, National Association for the Education of Young Children, Washington, DC What children aren't 'young'?
*** From TH:
Please let me know what you will need from me in order to get the below position posted right away. Also, if you can send me an email stating that this has been posted would help me a great deal. Please also include how and where I can go to view this posting. Thanks so much

*** The March to Madness.
The game is on. The Marquette Warriors, or whatever they call them, beat the Division II Hillsdale College, from Hillsdale, Michigan, 76-66.
*** You never know:
Congratulations! And thank you for your wonderful service to all those in communications. I also want to pass along that I got a WONDERFUL job through your newsletter! Thank you!
I encourage people to keep reading your job postings: You never know when things will just click and you'll get the job you've always wanted.

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 – email@example.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
