JOTW 47-2006
20 November 2006

“Nature gave us one tongue and two ears so we could hear twice as much as we speak.”
-Epictetus

Welcome to the latest installment in the running weekly serial drama called the “Job of the Week.”  This week, like every week, we share jobs we know about or need to hire for so that someone in the collective might benefit in some way.  This is a cooperative service based on the idea that everyone shares for the benefit of everyone.  If you do not share on a regular basis you are not deriving the full value of membership in the network, not to mention the fact that you are depriving your colleagues of your contributions.

As you know, membership in the network is free.  You can sign up from another address by sending a blank email from that address to JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.  Or you friends can do the same thing to get their own subscription.  If you need to change your address, subscribe from your new address using the instructions I just gave you, and unsubscribe from your old address by sending a blank e-mail to JOTW-unsubscribe@topica.com.

The JOTW is an award winning publication (http://www.newcommblogzine.com/?p=576) and a Fast Company magazine Fast 50 Reader Favorites (the Fast50 submissions that drew the highest marks among entries with at least 25 votes) (http://www.fastcompany.com/fast50_06/readers.html).

It’s time for the 2007 Fast50 awards.  I understand this year they want bright people with great ideas who do wonderful things and make money, too.  Why couldn't that be me?

To submit a listing for publication in JOTW, send at least the job title, organization and location, along with a link or contact info so that someone can follow up.  A brief description is okay.  A real long description is not so okay.

If you are looming to meet someone, you can submit a KISSS (Kommunicators in Search of a Special Someone).  Send to lundquist989@cs.com, and we’ll use tactful discretion.

If you have a difficult or intolerable situation at work, send the details to lundquist989@cs.com.  We’ll tactfully share with the Pimp My Job “Dream Team,” consisting of a labor attorney, employment counselor, HR director, and several senior communicators with associations, government and corporate positions, to analyze, comment and correct that which troubles you.  Again, we’ll be appropriately discrete, but perhaps a little irreverent. 

Please don’t send me your resume and ask me to find you a job.  But if you distill your resume down to one paragraph I’ll post it as a “One Paragraph Pitch.”  I only run one in an issue and it always runs first.  Hence there is a wait.  Send your OPP submission to lundquist989@cs.com.

Why do I do this?  Because it feels good to share.  Call it “selfish altruism.”  But I am dedicated to the “positive and unanticipated consequences of networking” or “nedworking” as we know it best.  Something great is going to come out of this, and I want to know what it is.  Maybe you will help me find out.

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

***  From the previous OPP:

Hi Ned,
I have no idea if you are able to do this for me or not, but I was hoping you would put a retraction notice in your next JOTW email, about my opp?  I have gotten alot of negative response, only from non LDS people in fact, about my jab at my own culture!  If you could send this out I would sincerely appreciate it:

Adam Torkildson JOTW retraction,

Two weeks ago, I wrote that I live in “Mormonville USA” for my opp in this email newsletter.  I had thought it would be a memorable way to talk about where I have lived and grown up and had so many wonderful experiences.  As a “Mormon” ,jokes like this are a dime a dozen.  I was so touched when I recieved emails from non Mormons asking me why I would use such a degrading remark in describing the wonderful area I live in.  It was nothing more than a weak attempt at humor at my own expense.  I apologize to all the professionals who recieve this email, and were offended at my remark.  I have learned so much about how other non LDS people view my religion, and all religions.  There is so much respect in the PR field for diversity, and I guess it took a slap in the face from people who were not even from my religion to wake me up to the fact that I need vast improvement on my
respect for diversity.

Thanks

Adam Torkildson

Hello!

I have been subscribing to JOTW for some time. I lived in DC for 2 years (just graduated from Georgetown Univ) and now have moved to Portland OR. I have a question —it may sound silly but I;ll ask anyway :)

In your list that I get every week, i see more job openings on the east coast like MD, VA, MA etc so was wondering if there's some other list in JOTW that caters to more job opportunities on the west coast.
Thanks so much
Madhura

(I have no idea.  This has nothing to do with who I cater to.  It has to do with who submits jobs.  Now that you are in the network I would expect you to submit jobs from your area.  I get lots of listings from the DC market because that's where I am and my network is concentrated here, but I get lots of listings from Philadelphia because that's where Bill Seiberlich is, and Phoenix, because that's where Ken Jensen is, and Los Angeles, because that's where Elaine Marshall is.  Now we will get listings from Portland, because…)

Hi there Edward
 
my friend told me that you send out JOTW (but I forget what that stands for)  Something to do with jobs and or networking I think.  But I was wondering if I could be added to your e-mail list and could you also send me some more information as to what you do.  Thanks so much.

***  I’m not dead yet:

Ned -

In today's JOTW, Debra Berthard-Caplick wittily inquired about the meaning of a terminal degree (“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?”

In academia, a terminal degree means the highest degree attainable in the field in which you teach. This is often, but not always, a Ph.D. For example, a J.D. is considered terminal in law (pun away, fellow communicators).

KY Colonel Ned,

Camille Downing sent you several jobs in the Pittsburgh area. One was from UPMC – a hospital outfit. I went to its site, but was unable to find the job opening (VP, Media Services) she had sent you.

Could you ask her to get in touch with me via e-mail and let me know more about this position?

Thanks,

Harry

***  Where do I submit a job posting?

I have a Communications Director position I'd like to fill and one of the previous candidates (took another position) suggested I post it on your site. I floundered around for awhile and couldn't find the likely place to post a job opening. Could you point me to the appropriate URL?

JB

(Seeing as I don't have a site yet, let's post it in my e-mail newsletter.  Just send it to me.  Include job title, organization/company and location.  A brief description is okay.  Then include a link to apply or some way to contact you or follow up.)

***  What if I can’t find the job?

Ned,

Camille Downing sent some Pittsburgh jobs today. When I clicked on the one for Alcoa I get a message saying that the job doesn't exist.  (I've had similar experiences with Alcoa in the past.)

Can you ask her if perhaps this is so new it's not yet on their system?

JC

John:

I pulled that job listing from the IABC Pittsburgh job placement
bulletin that comes out within days of when the chapter receives a
notification from an employer. So I am confident it is a relatively
newer job posting (within the last two-three weeks). Don't know why
Alcoa doesn't have it on their web site. What I sent you was directly
off of the information they sent to the Pittsburgh chapter to post.

Good luck with trying to track down this job. Sorry it has been a
hassle for you….

Camille Downing

***  What kind of job is a “communications-related job?”

Hi Edward,
 
I noticed in today's JOTW newsletter that you ran a listing for an Office Manager.  It made me wonder if you'd consider running our “Accounting Manager for PR Agency” opening as well.
 
It's understandable why you wouldn't, but I thought since the Accounting position is for a PR firm and we're looking for someone that has experience with time tracking databases and client billing, that you might consider it.  It would be ideal if we could find someone that has already managed the accounting for a PR firm.
 
I look forward to your reply.
 
Thanks,
 
L.P.

(Any job for a PR agency is communications-related.)

“We cannot tell what may happen to us in the strange medley of life. But we can decide what happens in us — how we can take it, what we do with it — and that is what really counts in the end. How to take the raw stuff of life and make it a thing of worth and beauty — that is the test of living.”

***  I met John Cass at the SNCR conference and awards gala in Boston.  He made me feel at ease with my lack of knowledge about the blogosphere, and was instructive and encouraging about my efforts to make the JOTW network transition to the next level.  He continues to be.  Here’s his blog on PR Communications (http://pr.typepad.com/).

John is working on a book about blogging tools and strategies for companies.  Chapter ten is all about what blog readers look for in a corporate blog.  He is conducting interviews or surveys with readers of corporate blogs, and he would like to get the permission of a corporate blogger to chat with their readers about what they think of their blog, and why they read the blog.
 
Here's his blog post about the survey and chapter, the post also contains a great transcript of a blog reader's answers to his survey. Says John, “thanks for the help with this.”

***  Happy Holidays from the Volunteer Job of the Week Newsletter

The next (Nov. 28, 2006) Volunteer Jobs of the Week Newsletter will feature a section on ways to give back for the holidays. If you aren't familiar with the newsletter, it's Ned's new 'sister' newsletter that allows you to tap your best communications skills and “give back” to organizations that need your help. The main focus is PR/Marketing/Communications volunteer opportunities, but for the holidays we'll include a special section for other ways to help.  The goal of VJOTW is to provide volunteer opportunities and fun things to do when you're not working or attending school or holiday party hopping (or all of the above).  However, as with JOTW, we'll need your contributions to share with the group. Opportunities – from writing and editing to actual hands-on work are welcome. To join in, subscribe for free by sending a blank e-mail to VJOTWnews-subscribe@topica.com. And remember, we never give out or sell the list, and neither does Topica. If you have any questions contact Heather and Rachel at VJOTWnews@gmail.com.

***  A list for policy jobs?

Ned,
 
Your list is excellent.  I have long been a subscriber.  Do you happen to know if any similar job lists exist that are a little more policy oriented?  I know that nothing is comparable to your comprehensive job list, but I have been working on Capitol Hill on health policy for about 10 years and am interested in learning more about potential opportunities off the Hill.  Just curious.

Verzeihen Sie mir, Kapitän, aber ich verstehe nicht.  I don’t get the reference – haven’t seen the flick yet, but if IMDB gives it a 7.0, it’s likely worth watching.  I see you’ve yanked the reference from the indispensable IMDB – whatever happened to committing them to memory, you know, dialogue from say Animal House, Caddyshack, Stripes, Ghostbusters, etc.?

***  An Air Force cargo plane was preparing for departure from Thule Air Base in Greenland. They were waiting for the truck to arrive to pump out the aircraft's sewage holding tank.
       
The Aircraft Commander was in a hurry, the truck was late in arriving, and the Airman performing the job was extremely slow in getting the tank pumped out.
       
When the commander berated the Airman for his slowness and promised punishment, the Airman responded: “Sir, I have no stripes, it is 20 below zero, I'm stationed in Greenland, and I am pumping sewage out of airplanes. Just what are you going to do to punish me?”

each one a delicate shimmering prism
in total agreement of the spectral order
like a million tiny diamonds,
the same way the spider does?

Could we find

An infinite clue
