“Happiness is not so much in having as sharing. We make a living by what
we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
- Norman MacEwan

Kalai Vanakam and 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.

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

I can't change your e-mail address for you.  But you can.  Send a blank
e-mail from your old account to JOTW-unsubscribe@topica.com.  Then send
a blank e-mail from your new account to

***  Weekly Piracy Report
.and more than you expected! 

***  One Paragraph Pitch:

Hi Ned,

Thanks for the great information you provide all the
communication/journalism professionals. In addition, I appreciate the
opportunity to add my personal pitch in the newsletter.

I have recently concluded my Master's in Journalism from the University
of North Texas and also possess a B.A. in Communication Studies. I am
interested in pursuing a career in corporate communications. In
addition, I bring four years of non- profit and agency public relations
experience that would support my efforts as I transition into a
corporate role. I am also open to agency work and freelance
opportunities. I am located in the Dallas area and can be reached at vgallegos55@hotmail.com or on my cell at 817.366.6070. Please do not
hesitate to contact me. Thanks again Ned!

My Best,

Vanessa Gallegos
C: 817.366.6070

***  Blessings continue:

Thank you so much for including a blessing in your newsletter this week.
 Prayers and blessing are becoming less and less popular and when and
where they are seem to be under a microscope.  It was a refreshing
change to see someone so openly offer a blessing such as the one you
have included below.
 
God bless and have a wonderful 2007!
 
Best,
Denise Walz
Director, Capitol Region Office
PRR Inc.

***  Upcoming Teleseminar: “Developing Your Accreditation Portfolio”

15 February 2007
Presenters: Nick Durutta, ABC, and Gail Pickard, ABC, IABC Accreditation

Council

Many IABC accreditation candidates report that one of the biggest
obstacles to becoming accredited is putting together their portfolio of
two work samples. If you'd like to earn your ABC sometime in the next
year, this teleseminar is a must.

A short overview of the steps involved in accreditation will be followed
by an in-depth review of what makes a good portfolio, with a focus on
writing a workplan that meets the portfolio-grading criteria. You'll
learn from two presenters who have not only been there, but who
regularly review and grade portfolios.

This teleseminar is designed for anyone who is an accreditation
candidate and is still working on their portfolio, as well as for any
IABC member considering accreditation – especially those who have won
awards (Gold Quill winners only need to submit one portfolio piece).
You'll come away with a blueprint for success, and hopefully with the
inspiration you need to get your ABC in 2007/2008.

***  KISSS

The JOTW newsletter is full of good deals.  One of the best features is
the KISSS (Kommunicators in Search of a Special Someone), dedicated to
helping make a close encounter of the personal kind.   It's a free
service.  Unlike the One Paragraph Pitch, there is no waiting.  Here's
our KISSS of the week:

Though I work in PR for a TV network, I like to think I'm not the
typical DC type…I enjoy watching “Project Runway” as much as “Meet the
Press” or catching a World Cup match or football game on the weekend.
You might be surprised to learn that I was once thrown out of a hockey
game! I like running and spinning classes along with a lazy stroll
through a bookstore or afternoon movie. Men have called me “sassy,” fun”
and “clever.” Friends say I'm a good listener and problem solver with a
zest for life. My humor is closer to Letterman than Leno. Kindness,
generosity, strength of character and honesty are traits I admire in
people. If I were to buy a car tomorrow, I'd consider a Volvo or Subaru
over a Corvette.  Contact Ned at lundquist989@cs.com who will forward
responses directly to “not the typical DC type.”

(Who is the celebrity you most closely resemble?)

I've been told Linda Hamilton of Terminator fame (occasionally Katie
Couric, before the CBS news remade her).

***  Even though December was one of the warmest on record, as we drove
to past the Leo J. Martin Golf Course to get on the Mass. Pike and head
home on Dec. 30, we passed snow making machines getting the course ready
(http://www.skiboston.com/skitrack/skitrack.php) for Nordic skiing,
although it scarcely felt cold enough.  I spent lots of hours of my
youth up to no good here, playing around Riverside and the Charles River
(
http://www.newtonconservators.org/15martin.htm).

***  When we pass:

Thank you, Ned, for the humorous and touching tribute to James Brown,
that hard-working man.  Have you ever wondered what words (if any) will
be attributed to us when we pass?  Makes me shudder, it does.  I'll be
more careful about the words that pass my lips…at least for a while.
:-) cj

Connie Mayse

***  I felt good:

Years ago, I coordinated James Brown's visit to Dallas, Texas. 
 
Admittedly, when I first met him, I was taken aback by his appearance. 
It was 7:30 in the morning just before a radio interview.  He was
waiting in his limo, wearing a gold lame jumpsuit.  His hair was in pink
rollers. (His only staff was a chauffeur and hair stylist.)
 
For the next three days, we went everywhere together–in-store record
promotions, interviews, and filmed segments of his shows by
Entertainment Tonight.  In addition to truly being “the hardest working
man in show business,” he was the nicest, most gracious person.  A good
memory.
 
Ann Eldridge Hall

***  Respects to the Godfather:

On honoring the Godfather of Soul, I thank you and “HUH! OW!
GOOD GOD!  Nothing like him before and we won't see his like again.  If
you were ever fortunate enough to see one of his concert shows, you know
you saw perfection.  Each note was perfect.  Each move was perfect.  You
loved the music, you loved the spectacle and you had to love James Brown
– he respected his audience so much that he was, in fact, the hardest
working man in show business in order to give them a great experience. 
He will be missed for his citizenship as well — he wasn't perfect, but
he realized that he had an obligation because of his prominence and he
honored that with his actions.

Mary Dixon

***  From Brian Kilgore:

As for the comment about sorting your list by georgaphy — I like your
current way, because it lets people see the entire universe, including
jobs that might be so good they'd move.
 
Besides, what's an area? I can imagine you getting listings from near me
that say Oakville, Burlington, Richmond Hill, Markham, Mississauga,
Toronto, Pickering, Oshawa, Ajax and a few more place names. What a
challenge you'd face getting out your atlas to make sure these were not
near Ottawa – Kanata – Glouster – Carleton Place – Monotick, and so on.
 
Seattle's got Kirkand and Redmond and a few more. And so on as so forth.
 
Good luck with the commercialization.
 
BAK

(I guess you could always use states and provinces.  And everyone knows
where Oshawa is.  That's where Bobby Orr played junior hockey. 
Commercialization is a bad term.  I'm just offering the opportunity for
a revenue stream.)

***  CommsOffensive325:

Mike Klein, our JOTW Research Guru, has launched a new online network
and blog for Internal Communications professionals called
“CommsOffensive325″, which opened last week.
 
CommsOffensive325 is all about supporting Internal Communicators in
addressing their big challenges–whether in terms of strategy,
implementation, or, what Mike thinks most important, in engaging and
persuading clients to agree effective communication strategies and
tactics. 
 
The site is a little irreverent, and it's backed up with Mike's solid
experience as a communicator working in Britain, Europe and fourteen US
states–running political campaigns, conducting surveys (like last
year's JOTW survey), and delivering effective internal communications
for the US Government and companies like Reuters, Barclays Bank, Eli
Lilly, Omnicom and easyJet.  CommsOffensive325 is not a vehicle for
selling consulting services or publications–like JOTW, it's a platform
for engaging and nurturing a “Nedwork”.
 
The site is located at http://commsoffensive325.blogharbor.com
 
Oh, and what's the 325 for?  Mike will publish brand new content on the
3rd and 25th of each month–with other items and comments in between.

***  New JOTW website limerick contest:

It's been a while since we had a limerick contest.  So let's see who can
come up with a great limerick about the new JOTW website
(www.nedsjotw.com).

***  Method of delivery:

Greetings, Ned —

Occasionally I see requests not directly related to a job opening on
JOTW, and I'd like to know if you will accept the following query for my
sister/fellow JOTW subscribers:

.   If you use a media tracking company to track “media hits,” which one
do you use?
.   Do you send the majority of your news releases to the media
electronically or by snail mail?

Please respond to Annamarie DeCarlo, ABC, at adecarlo@aahs.org. Thank
you!

***  Sharing:

I'd appreciate you sending any positions my way thank you.

M

(The way it works is I post the jobs I hear about in the newsletter. 
And you send anything you hear about to me so I can share with the
rest.)

***  Trust who?

Very funny, Ned.  I actually fired up a few brain cells for this one.

I first thought — Trust?  What's that?  We seem to live in a perpetual
state of “question everything.”

Then I thought, well, Pope John Paul II seemed to be a good man, well
liked, trusted…but he's no longer here.

Certainly no major political leaders qualified so I continued down the
“universally liked” category.  Mother Theresa, Mahatma Gandhi.  Again,
no longer here.

AHA!  It must be the Dalai Lama.  No one really questions his sincerity
or goodness.  That's my choice.

But, alas, I had ignored the obvious.  Without question, Ned Lundquist
is the most trusted person in the world.  After all, he has 10,200 of us
(and counting) rushing to our inboxes (or web browsers — congrats!)
every Monday for words of wisdom, good cheer, thought-provoking quotes
and the occasional blessing.  Alas, dear friend, every day is a blessing
when you receive the gift of Lundquist.

Ned, you are such a guy.  I still want to see the photos of the duct
taped ones.  Maybe at the February meeting (can't make January's because
it's on the wrong day) Actually, you should send the photos and story to
the guys on Car Talk.  They'd get a real kick (making with the puns
again) out of it and you might get some trinket from the Shameless
Commerce Division for your efforts.
 
Oh, which reminds me (I'm a woman, reminders come it all sorts of random
forms), I heard a bit on NPR this morning about (drum roll … wait for
it …) the Complaints Choir of Helsinki!  You are way ahead of the news
curve on that one.  The director was saying they were up for some award
but lost out, so now they will be complaining about that.  (Insight into
the mind of woman:  the connection was NPR). ~ C'Lee
