***  One Paragraph Pitch:

Need a Windy City resource on a project or ongoing basis?
 
I'm a Chicago-based former reporter and award-winning PR agency manager
who has maintained a solo practice for more than 10 years.  I work with
organizations nationwide on assignments ranging from writing of all
types to media relations to research and those short-deadline “special
projects.”  I have experience in most industries, and am comfortable
with both B2B and B2C.
 
While my Chicago location gives me an edge here, I also work with news
outlets across the country.  For example, I recently secured positive
coverage for clients in American Banker, CFO Magazine, Chicago Tribune,
CNBC, Crain's Chicago Business, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Public Works
Magazine, and Today's Chicago Woman, to name just a few.
 
My rates are reasonable and flexible, and I've never missed a client
deadline, nor had a client challenge an invoice.
 
If you have an immediate or upcoming need, I'd love to discuss the
possibilities. (And I'll be happy to provide samples, references, and
additional background upon request.)
 
Please call 847-864-9540 or write cindymartincommunications@yahoo.com.
 
Thanks!
 
Cindy Martin

***  Exciting news about JOTW sponsorship:

The new website will debut on January 1, 2007.  Some of you have already
seen it.  We have sponsors for January and March.  The February
sponsorship is being “sold” on eBay.  Bidding for February will open on
Jan. 1 for 10 days.  Sponsorship for April is now available at the
introductory price.

***  Bulbous Bouffant:

I cannot explain this, so go to this site, scroll to the bottom,  and
click on “listen to the skit.”
http://www.ebenezerreformed.com/xstream/bulbousBouffant.php

***  Change:

How do I change my jotw email address?  Thanks!

SR

(You send a blank e-mail from the old address to JOTW-unsubscribe@topica.com; then a blank e-mail from the new address to JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.)

***  How it works:

The Job of the Week is a cooperative service.  It relies on submissions
of its members.  If there are no listings from your area, ask yourself
how many listings you have sent in while being a part of the network. 
If you don't see listings from your city or region, please look for them
and send them in.  That's how “Nedworking” works.

***  JOTW FAQ explains it all:

Ned, I love the FAQs. They are absolutely hilarious.

PS. I haven't heard the “sky is blue for blue eyed people, brown for
brown eyed people” answer since I was 7, when my best friend Katie
explained that to me.

PPS. She was blue eyed.

***  Ad penetration:

“Advertising is the most fun you can have with your clothes on” was
written by Jerry Della Femina in”From those Wonderful Folks who Gave you
Pearl Harbor”  I believe it is the last line in the book.

***  From Ken Frager:

Like the site…but still love the list! Thanks for trying to improve on
something that really needs no improvement!

***  Fresh, Def:

Love the site. It's fresh, clean, easy to navigate and read. Well Done!

Ken Jensen

***  From Eliot Brenner:

Nicely done, sir. Great “who am I” picture.  Where in the world was that
taken? Somewhere in the Pacific I would guess.  Happy Holidays.

Eliot

(That photo was taken on Ngulu.  I'll post another, and I suggest you
take a look.  It shows Chief Rinfl and the most prized possessions he
keeps under his tarp.  As soon as I figure out how to post that photo.)

***  From the Hart:

Nice site, except I think you'd had one too many gin & tonics before
they took that photo at right on the home page.
 
Merry Christmas,
Paul Hart

***  From Bernie Wagenblast:

Ned & Pat,
 
Thank you for sharing that holiday message.  It's so easy to forget all
the blessings we enjoy as we complain about “big problems” such as
getting stuck in traffic, having to wait on line in a restaurant or that
we're not enjoying perfect weather for some planned event.  Thanks for
reminding us how blessed we are.
 
Merry Christmas!
 
Bernie Wagenblast

(I would have agreed with you, except my son's iPod won't hold a charge
any more, and I took it back into BestBuy, and they said they no longer
handled iPod exchanges, and I would have to call Apple, so I left, and
went to the Navy Federal ATM, but I needed to check to see if PayPal had
made a few deposits in my account, and I couldn't do it online because I
forgot my pin, and they only sent it by mail, and it's sitting on the
kitchen table, so I left Tom in the car, and went inside to see a
teller, and waited a half hour, and then she couldn't print my balance
sheet, and had to get in another line to get my statement, and she said
there was a line for printouts.oh, wait, I forgot, these are not big
problems.never mind.)

***  Don't wait for me:

Cap'n Ned:

Way, way, WAY too long ago, you asked me to take a look at the website
and tell you what I thought.  I did and I liked it.  But I got busy on
some editing project and I didn't get back to you and tell you.  I
apologize.  I thought the site looked positive, upbeat, and, above all,
professional.  I thought that the site reflected you and that's what it
should do.  I'm delighted to see that you were not waiting for my input
before making a go of it.  The world is a better place because most
people don't sit around waiting for my blessing before they act.

My wife and daughters are already talking about New Orleans in June.  I
hope that I get to go, too.

Thanks for your support.  –Connieconnie_eckard@msn.com 

***  From Suzan French:

You may have discussed this already and if so, I apologize for being
unenlightened…but, did you read about the guy who won an award for his
newsletter's business model because he invited people to pay at will?

***  From WOODY BERZINS, APR:

Nice Ned! And you look great in your gallery.

Thanks for truly making a difference in many lives you probably will
never know you've reached with the simple idea of JOTW.

R,
WOODY

***  Season's Boldness:

Edward,

Thanks for sharing Pat's blessing and having the boldness to do so.

Marry Christmas,
Jeff Trexel

***  Trane McCloud:

Ned,

Thank God I'm on your list or I wouldn't have known of this fine Marine
Officer's death. As you know, I worked with Trane at the Media Center.
He was always professional, unassuming, but a great talent in many ways.
I remember his dry sense of humor and his willingness to help. He took
Marine principles seriously and always took the time to mentor his
Marines, despite the crazy high op tempo that Navy/Marine Corps News
operated on. He personally encouraged me to pursue the Master's Degree
at American University, which I did. I also remember him being a wizard
at Excel, and I remember the photo he kept on his desk of his wife on
their wedding day, holding his Marine cover out the window of the limo.
He was a true Marine in every sense of the word– I can think of no
higher compliment. Thanks for passing the word.

Monica Hallman, JOC (ret).

***  One paragraph Pitch:

Ned,
 
What should a good “one paragraph pitch” contain?

PM

(Something that is compelling about you, that might entice somebody to
contact you and strike up a conversation that then can result in an
exchange of a resume in return for a job description that might result
in some interviews that could lead to a job offer that might change your
life.  It all depends on how compelling you can be.)

***  If you want it, here it is, come and get it:

Hey Ed, with all the good you do for every one throughout the year I
hope you get everything you want from the holidays! Have a merry
Christmas and may the new year be good for you. Crystal

Crystal Rockwood

***  Where are the jobs:

Hi Ned:

I've just signed up, and been welcomed to the Job of the Week, on the
recommendation of my colleague.  I am interested in being added to your
Job mailing list.  Problem is. I don't know how to access the listings –
do you provide a link or contact email anywhere – in order to apply for
the jobs?

AF

(I sure do.  The email contains all the information.  First the jobs are
listed in numerical order, then each appears below with url or contact
info.  Then I post to www.nedsjotw.com.  I follow that with another
email to the list that states that the jobs for the week are now posted
at
www.nedsjotw.com.  I suspect that you are not scrolling down far
enough.)

Ned,

You are so right about not scrolling down far enough!! Now I see.  I
haven't been able to navigate the website yet . but will look there
again for the jobs.  Thank you!

Best regards,

Ann

***  The JOTW Holiday Blessing:

God bless you too, Ned, and your family.
 
That was a wonderful blessing to read early this morning. It was strange
too, because I was thinking along the same lines (minus the military
references — not my background).
 
We received a letter from the Northwoods, where my wife's cousin lives
— with the Native Americans. She and her husband are ministers of some
sort, one with the woods, etc.  What struck me was the genuine nature of
her attitude, and one particular phrase, “(husband's name) and I are so
proud our children are all giving something back…”
 
It's so true — so am I. And so I am proud of my friend, Ned, who is
giving something back every single day of his life. It is a wonderful
thing you do Ned sir.
 
A joyous Christmas is my wish for you.
 
Doug

imbued your posts, now, with a handsome heart and a deeply humane face.
Thank you for all your labors and effort in our multiple behalfs.

Ned,

I can't adequately express what a blessing this blessing was. Thank you.

***  From Pat Valdata:

Thank you, Ned. This blessing is especially poignant for me because my
niece's husband, who is in the Naval Reserves, is being deployed to
Afghanistan for a year starting in January. Their baby was just a year
old in October. This is a bittersweet holiday for the whole family.

I wish you a very happy Christmas, and much success with the JOTW web
site in 2007.

(Well we don't have a special reserve blessing.  They get the “total
force” blessing.)

They deserve the full blessing, that's for sure. So what might a Naval
officer do in landlocked Afghanistan?

Pat

(The Navy is providng a lot of “boots on the ground” to help relieve
some of the load on the Army and Marines.  We call them “Individual
Augmentees,” since they deploy individually instead of with their unit
and fill a specific role, such as communications officer in an Army
unit, or trainer/advisor to Afghani forces.  There are Navy IAs serving
in Pakistan and Iraq, too.)

***  From Tom Choman:

Ned –

Thank you for sharing a wonderful Christmas blessing. By sharing this
and the work you do through the newsletter, you are lifting our spirits
everyday — communicating to all of us out there that there are
opportunities to seek even if we are fortunate enough to hold a
position. That alone is uplifting — to know that perhaps a better
position (something we really want to do) is awaiting us. All we need to
do is apply.
 
God bless you and Captain Tracy and both of your families.

***  Always thankful for the next opportunity:

Ned —
 
And, a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family! 
I so appreciate what you do.  May God Bless you!
 
Regards,
Roy Brunett

***  All inclusive:

Ned,

Thanks to you and Pat Tracy. His “blessing” was a real blessing to me. I
appreciate your willingness to share this beautiful expression of faith
in God, and I commend you for offering an inclusive prayer that can be
prayed by people of all faiths.

Bob Bryant

***  God watches over us:

Mr. Lundquist:

I have subscribed to your listing for while now. I've enjoyed your
messages of hope and faith that things will improve.  I am a public
relations executive who went without work or under employed for about
2-years.  I lost all of my home, material possessions and my marriage,
but not my person.  Things were not good, but in the grand scheme of
things there was always someone who would gladly change places with me.
Although I've never landed a position as listed on your site I am
appreciative of your offering of hope. 
 
Today I am the Vice President of Communications & Marketing for a
non-profit.  I am very pleased to have the honor to work again but I
will always appreciate the work that you do and the hope that you
provide all of us.  To that end if there is anyone out there who needs a
good word please have them write to me.  I've been there.
 
Happy holidays to you and everyone!
 
Courage!
Reggie Sanders

***  Every Monday Morning:

Dear Ned,

Thank you and Capt. Tracy for the blessing and these thoughts.

Thank you for providing JOTW every Monday morning.

Merry Christmas,

***  Don't stop praying after the holiday:

Thanks, Ed! And blessings in abundance for you, your family and those
like me who still have no jobs.
 
Peace!
Michael

***  All Inclusive Blessing:

What a wonderful JOTW Holiday Blessing! Thank you. (I'm sure “Sailors”
includes the Coast Guard, right?) Celia Hoke

(Pat says:  “Airmen” also includes our flying brethren of the USCG
(along with those from the Army, Navy, USAF & USMC).  🙂  Merry
Christmas!)

***  From Connie Eckard, Colonel, USAFR, (Ret.), ABC:

Amen to you, my 06/ABC friend (Pat, too).  Blessings of the season for
the days gone by and the days to come.  -Connie

***  Amen:

Thank you for this prayer.  We are sponsoring 10
soldiers  from Walter Reed at the Capital Yacht Club
holiday dinner  where the club is hosting a large
group.  I would like to share this prayer with them.

Thanks,
Susan

***  Great things in 2007:

Dear Mr. Lundquist …

    I appreciate this beautiful, all-encompassing prayer from your best
friend/best man, Pastor Tracy (or is it Chaplain???).

    I believe great things, huge things are in store for all of us in
2007.  We've just gotta keep our hands on the plow, trust in the supreme
Goodness of our Creator, and run this race.

    Thank you for all you've been doing and what you've provided to all
of us.

    May God richly bless you and your family in the coming New Year.  As
we sing in my church:  “The Best Is Yet To Come!!”

Sincerely,

Denise L. Mc Iver

***  Feliz Navidad y próspero Año Nuevo:

Thanks, and as we say here in San Antonio, feliz Navidad y próspero Año
Nuevo. You've certainly given to help a lot of people and I pray God
will bless you in return: “Give and it shall be given to you, pressed
down, shaken together and running over.”
 
Paul Hart

***  Read, Write, Returning:

Now Ned, you don't give those of us who are civilian day sailors enough
credit. To prove it, I'm sending you a picture of my baby, Horseplay, a
30 foot, 1974 Grampian cruiser we keep moored at Great Lakes Naval
Training Center outside of Chicago. Red, right, returning is one of the
first things you learn when sailing.

1.)  Communications/Web Specialist, Centerbeam, San Jose CA

Job Description:
We are looking for a special individual – one who has proven experience
as an individual performer in the areas of writing and corporate
communications. We are a lean and mean team that will rely on your
experience and talent researching, writing and editing a broad range of
material. You have an innate curiosity and desire to learn. You also
have strong references as a team player and can be counted on to step in
and make a difference.
Your main areas of focus will be creating content for a number of
audiences. We are a team that has our fingers in many aspects of the
business, and need customer-facing content, employee-facing content,
sales and lead generation focused content … you get the drift! Your
assignments will be varied, and at any given time might include drafting
a press release, updating a user guide, creating customer service
notifications, and coming up with the next outbound sales letter to
prospects. You will also be responsible for our web site, both keeping
the content fresh and relevant, as well as helping oversee any larger
scale changes. As an IT service organization, we are very focused on
process – and would rely on your organizational skills both to help
drive process development and documentation both for your direct team,
and to contribute and help other teams where they might need it.
Responsibilities:
.   Researching, writing and editing internal and external communications
to any number of different audiences: employees, clients, prospects,
media
.   Proven experience and aptitude creating content for everything from
user guides to web communications to sales outreach campaigns to
newsletters to data sheets
.   Ability to capture the “voice” and relevance for each audience and
communicate to them in a way that matters
.   Maintain the Web site and internal corporate intranet (largely content
management vs. app development)
.   Process development and documentation
Minimum Requirements:
.   You have 5 years of relevant experience in corporate communications,
marketing communications, etc.
.   You have a degree in journalism, communications or a relevant field
.   You have worked in fast-paced environments before, and are comfortable
working on a number of projects at the same time and have a track record
of meeting deadlines consistently
.   You have developed process and/or documentation
.   You have a mastery of Microsoft Office products, and also a strong
familiarity with applications including: Illustrator, Photoshop,
Sharepoint, HTML and Visio
.   You have worked with a content management system before, comfortable
using varied applications and are a quick learner.
.   Familiarity with WebSideStory content management a plus but not
required.
.   If you are not familiar with Lean Six Sigma, you are interested in
learning about it and would like to add this skill set to your resume
.   You are excited to be a part of a great team, and look forward to
contributing both as an individual, and as part of that larger team.
If this description fits your experience and expertise, let's talk!
Characteristics of a successful candidate:
While you report to corporate communications, our “clients” are varied –
as such, you need to be able to:
.   Develop solid relationships
.   Ask the right questions
.   Execute effectively
.   Be highly organized
.   Grasp ideas, concepts and information quickly and have an ability to
get to the essence of what needs to be communicated – and do so in a
simple fashion.
