JOTW 48-2006


JOTW 48-2006
27 November 2006

“Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.”
~Cicero

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.

This is the week after we Americans celebrate Thanksgiving, and a good time to be mindful that we have much to be grateful for all year long.  Eric Hoffer once said, “The hardest arithmetic to master is that which enables us to count our blessings.”  I'm grateful for you.  I am grateful for my family.  I am grateful for life and for opportunity.  I can keep this up for a while.  I'm not good at arithmetic, but I can see how this adds up.  And you should be grateful for me.  Keep counting.  That's how it works.

I believe there is power in making connections, even through the thin and tenuous filaments of this Internet.  Marcel Proust wrote “Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.”  This is in keeping with our “count-your-blessings” theme this week.  And by making deep and meaningful connections from helping others, positive and unanticipated consequences happen to us.  Was Francois de La Rochefoucauld right when he said “Gratitude is merely the secret hope of further favors?”  (Or “La reconnaissance de la plupart des hommes n'est qu'une secrète envie
de recevoir de plus grands bienfaits,” which means “The gratitude of most men is but a secret desire to receive even greater benefits.”)

I have this newsletter thing that has grown steadily since I started it
in 2001.  I told myself when I hit 10,000 I would create a website, and
create a way to generate revenue without destroying the unique character
of the network I have assembled.  So, well, umm, ahh, like I said.  One
of these days, you'll see.

About this newsletter:  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.  And we share dozens of opportunities each week.  So far, JOTW has
shared more than 15,000 job opportunities (15,919 to be closer to the
truth) in more than 600 newsletters (about 657 by my rough estimate). 
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.

About the website:  It's free, too.  Sort of.  Those who register as
“Senior Networkers” will have many “members only” privileges.  The
newsletter will be posted at the website.  Anyone who has a job posting
to share that can't wait until the newsletter comes out will be able to
submit an urgent “Can't Wait!” announcement for a modest fee.  What I am
really hoping for are monthly sponsors to underwrite the entire
enterprise.

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

***  One Paragraph Pitch:

Hello Ed I would be interested in submitting my pitch out there for
employment and when you have the chance and enjoy your vacation.

Three years ago I moved out to the Los Angeles area from Columbus Ohio
to try something different. I came out here to work in production with
TV and Film and along the way I worked on 2 features, various television
pilots, and just wrapped 2 years working as the audience coordinator for
the Ellen DeGeneres Show, but I looking to actually pursue my interests
in marking and promotions and actually start a career. In the past I
have worked in radio promotions, taught for the US Space Camp, and
worked during my college years for Regal Cinemas doing promotions and
basic management duties. I am open to the opportunity to relocate and
perhaps there is someone out there who can see something in my
background or resume and might be able to give me a chance…thanks

***  Thanksgiving Rivalries:

Where I come from, Thanksgiving is a day for decades-old football
rivalries.  My high school, now known as Newton North High School, beat
their annual Thanksgiving rival Brookline 36-7.  Newton North has a
slight edge over the history of the rivalry: 52-48-7.  The current head
coach, Peter Capidilupo, was my English teacher in his first year of
teaching.  He was a graduate of Newton High School, as I am, and has
taught there since he graduated from Williams College.

P.S. I hope you saw the article last week in the L.A. Times about piracy
at sea. It was about the area around Singapore. I think it appeared on
11/13 or thereabouts.

***  From Stephanie Strauss:

Hi Ned,

I'm 23 and (luckily) employed at a trade association for my first job
out of college, but already thinking about my next step in a year or
two. I want to get an international position in either a Latin American
country, Spain or Mexico. I double-majored in Spanish and journalism. My
current job is a media relations/marketing coordinator. What are some
steps I should take to make myself desirable to an international stage
and how do you suggest I go about finding these positions– other than
your venerable JOTW, of course?

Hi Ned! Wow, this is like talking to a celebrity, haha.

***  From Meka:

Ed,

I am not job seeking right now, but I enjoy getting your emails every
week for the quotes.  They are always so clever and very nice to read
first thing in the morning.  Thank you very much.  Where do you get them
from?  Do you have an archive of all you've sent you could send me?

Thank you,

***  Making the switch:

Hi Ed,

Read about you in Daily Dog, and since life is always throwing curves, I
like to think ahead a bit.  I've been running a small 2-3 person shop
for 20+ years with some really terrific clients.  However, I've noticed
many experienced colleagues are moving into corporate positions. It
might be time to go back inside, and one client has already alluded to a
possible in-house slot.  We'll see–life is changing so fast these days
and I plan to keep challenged.

Cheers,
TH

(Anyone have any comments about experienced PR agency colleagues moving
into corporate positions??  Or is it the other way around?)

***  Napoleon Dynamite…and quotes from progeny:

Ned,

Hurray for Napoleon Dynamite! I grew up several miles outside of
Othello, Washington — a town of about 4,000 in the high desert of
eastern Washington.  My friends here in the east (particularly those
city folk) have a hard time understanding the dynamics of my hometown
(and an even harder time getting why I love going back and will always
consider it home).  Thank goodness for Napoleon Dynamite!  My kids made
me watch the movie, “Mom, it's Othello!” and now I just direct my
friends to watch it, practically a documentary on growing up in Othello.
I spent 10 days there in October…picking apples with my dad, visiting
family friends with my mom, taking long walks alongside fields of fall
alfalfa on one side and newly baled hay on the other…maybe not heaven,
but close!

I loved Tom's quote (happy 19th, Tom!) and thought I'd share one of my
favorites from my eldest son (who will be be 22 next month, yikes). 
“You can always make a comeback.”  — Matt McHale, age 8, upon being
consoled on making the last out in a 15-2 baseball game loss.  He
rejected the argument that him making the last out wasn't the
determining factor in a loss of that size, by saying — “but you don't
understand, you can always make a comeback.”

Happy Thanksgiving,

Kathy

(Matt should always remember the 2004 Red Sox, after losing the third
game of the ALCS 19-8 against the Yankees.)

***  Don't slow down:

Steve Gallison reports, “Hiring for regular jobs does not stop during
the Holiday season.  Do not slow your job acquisition activities down!”
 
Gallison, director of the Professional Outplacement Assistance Center
(POAC),  a service of the Maryland Job Service, says “A recent informal
survey of recruitment/HR folks I recently conducted and the amount of
informational materials being circulated to recruiters and HR folks
indicates that those people who seek non-seasonal employment are often
seen as persistent, driven individuals by employers (highly desirable
traits.)”

I asked Steve what research he used.  “Basically I contacted 26
recruiters/HR managers by phone and asked them if the hiring process is
being slowed down during the holidays – resounding answer is 'no.'  The
information on the internet and periodicals also indicate that there is
no slow down during the holiday periods.”

***  Black Friday: 

If going grocery shopping the week before Thanksgiving is a bad idea,
going holiday shopping the day after is dummer.  Last year I took my two
kids to Best Buy when they opened at 5 a.m. to get an iPod 4gb Nano
because we were told they would have them.  Bad, bad idea.  After
striking out on a few other supposed good deals we went to Radio Shack
because it opened at 6.  We waited with other people who like us were in
their cars because it was cold.  When they opened we stormed the place
and fought over the few things we wanted.  I also bought a few presents
that I would learn later that my wife didn't want.  Never again.  This
year we stayed home.  What's your Black Friday experience?

***  Black Friday:

I just for the first time in my life participated in Black Friday by
going to Best Buy at 5 a.m. in hopes of getting a computer that was
massively on sale.  Not only did I not get the computer, but it was a
nightmare!  It made me wonder what it's like when people are grabbing
for food and water instead of computers and LCD screens.  I'll never do
that again!

I went to Best Buy at 10 to 5.  The line in Watertown went all the way
around the outside of the shopping center and the parking lot was
already almost full (including the Target parking lot).  I heard some
funny comments in line: “This is like March of the Penguins,” and “Do 
you think this many people really lined up for the Justin Timberlake
CD?”  But although the line moved quickly once the store opened and the
general humor was good until then, it was a mob scene inside.  People
were crowding into the aisles, grabbing items off the shelves and trying
to get the attention of the too-few employees who for the most part had
no idea what was going on.  The manager of the store told me the
computers were already gone when they weren't.  They kept saying you
needed “tickets” and no one knew where the tickets where. 

When I finally found the computer I'd come to buy up on a high shelf, I
waited patiently with some other people who said an employee was coming
back with a  ladder to get them.  We waited for about 15-20 minutes, and
during that time the employee passed us by with the ladder and got items
for other people instead.  When he finally came to get our computers,
there were only 4 or 5 (the ad said each store was guaranteed to have at
least 15).  He handed them first to people who hadn't been waiting, and
the people in line near me started to argue with them about the fact
that they'd been waiting for 20 minutes.  The ones receiving the
computers claimed they'd been at the register, or had asked first. 
Suddenly the employee was holding one computer and two people started
arguing saying they should get it first.  I asked if it was the last one
and the employee nodded yes, so I just left.  I wasn't interested in
seeing the outcome of THAT argument.
 
I wasn't interested in buying anything else there after the experience. 
I got really uncomfortable watching people grabbing for everything and I
just left the store, walked across the still-dark parking lot and came
home.
 
The strange thing is I have a really uncomfortable, bad feeling in my
gut that still lingers.  I was disappointed, yes, as I need the new
computer for work, and perhaps I felt a little sorry for myself and
embarrassed about trying to get a computer for such a discount price and
taking part in such an event, never mind the feeling of being diminished
by being ignored and pushed aside by the manager and employees.  But I
kept thinking about a movie I recently saw, “Live and Become” and a
scene where people in Ethiopia were running and grabbing for food
supplies dropped by a plane, and there was something very uncomfortable
about the comparison.
 
I think I'll just stick with this old computer a little longer.

Web-based seminar. You just need a computer and a telephone to attend,
but you must register in advance. There's no need to download any
software.)

In this 45-minute session, you'll learn:
1. What podcasting is
2. The benefits for podcast producers and listeners
3. Which organizations are already podcasting – and why
4. How to find podcasts to match your interests
5. How to create a podcast

***  Thanksgiving :

Ned,
 
In this Thanksgiving season, please accept my wish that throughout 2006
you can honestly say that–for the most part–you have done the right
things for the right reasons with the right intentions because if you
can say that, you can be truly grateful.
 
Best regards,

***  Comfortable slippers. 

I have these old Dearfoam moccasin slippers.  I've had them so long that
three years ago I was hinting broadly I wanted a new pair for Christmas,
then my birthday, then father's day.  This cycle repeated itself.  I was
really disappointed when I didn't get a new pair this past Father's Day.
 I had made my desires clear, and the slippers were coming apart.  The
right sole was cracked.  This situation became worse to the point of
being a safety hazard, not to mention annoying when the front part of
the sole would get stuck under the back part.  Then a corner of the
front part split, and it would bend under and be uncomfortable. 

My wife said, “They have them at Kohls.”  I'm thinking, so buy some for
me.  I got tired of waiting.  I ordered them on line on October 14.  Two
pairs.  They show up about a week later.  But guess what, they are the
wrong size.  I wear a 10 ½ shoe, sometimes a 10, and I thought a 10
would work, but they were way too tight.  I called customer service but
had to leave a voice mail.  They eventually called back but one of my
kids took the call and of course didn't take down a message and I'm sure
the Dearfoams people couldn't understand what they were saying and
figured they had done their job and that was that.  So I fill out the
form for an exchange, box them back up, search for packing tape and have
to rely on my duct tape, take it to the post office, wait in line, and
ship it back insured (for a value of $60) for like $10 in postage.  I
email Dearfoams to tell them I am sending them back.  I wait, and wait. 
I get no confirmation that they have been received, so I email again. 
My wife reminds me they have them at Kohls.  Yes, I acknowledge this
fact, and you could have bought them for me there two years ago like I
had asked. 

By now my old slippers, the right one anyway, is really coming apart. 
So I grab my duct tape and give it a turn or two to keep the split sole
together.  This pretty much does the trick, as an expedient measure,
anyway.

On November 8, I finally hear from Dearfoams regarding my exchange.  “We
just received your slippers.  We will process a return on your credit
card for them.  You will need to go on to our site and re-order your
size 11 slippers as we are not able to process exchanges in our system. 
Here is a coupon code to receive $5 off your total order to cover
shipping and some extra for the inconvenience.  The code is:  DFSE2222.
You will receive an email when your account is credited. “

I wonder why there is a form for return or exchange in the box when I
got them if there is no way for them to do an exchange.  I go online and
reorder, only when I use the coupon code it doesn't take.  I guess it
should have been a gift certificate code.  Anyway, I notify Dearfoams
and they agree to credit the account with the $5.  “Yes, we will credit
your account for the $5. After you enter the code you need to click
apply for the $5 to be deducted.  Also, the code is case sensitive.”

This is nice because it cost much more than that to return them.

My old slippers continue to crack.  The sole on the right slipper in
cracking in several other places.  The duct tape is working pretty well,
not to mention the style factor I've imparted to the right slipper. 
Hopefully my new slippers will arrive soon.  What if they don't fit,
either? 

I finally send them an e-mail just before Thanksgiving to say that I
still haven't received the slippers.  “What's that box at the bottom of
the basement stairs?” my wife asks.  How long has this box been here
with stuff piled on top.  I take the slippers out.  They fit.  There's a
little pokey bit off something on the inside of the left slipper that's
kind of annoying.  Plus there is something strange about that same
slipper.  I finally check and there is a little pouch of desiccant
that's been stuck in the toe of that shoe and I've been walking around
with it.

It is now the day after Thanksgiving, and I get up but can't find my new
slippers in the dark.  I left the old ones at the head of the stairs to
the basement.  These old ones have multiple cracks now.  I also have the
other new pair still in the box at the bottom of the basement stairs.  I

***  From Connie Mayse:

Hi, Ned.  Hope you're doing well.  I am planning my organization's first
Communicators' Summit for February 2007.  I am inviting people
responsible for communication – some of them are “accidental”
communicators and some are professionals – within our division of Time
Warner Cable.  The purpose is to share best practices, develop
consistency in communications, ensure we follow corporate style
guidelines, and offer help and camaraderie and a shoulder to cry on,
whichever is needed most.

The tentative agenda includes these topics:
.   Corporate Branding – Internal & External
.   Writing Guidelines
.   Communicator as a Consultant to Business
.   Tools for the Job
.   Target Your Audience
.   Measuring the Effectiveness of Communication
.   Communication Planning
.   Using Appreciative Inquiry in Needs Analysis, Planning and Delivery

Have any of my JOTW colleagues delivered similar material, and would you
be willing to share?  I'm planning to tap internal subject matter
experts and perhaps a few of my IABC friends who are looking for a free
lunch, but thought I should open this up to the wonderful resource that
is JOTW.

If you have ideas, words of wisdom (or caution), or resources to share,
please contact me at connie.mayse@twcable.com.  Thanks, Ned!
