degenerating into obsession, friendship is never anything but sharing.”
– Elie Wiesel

Hi, Ned,

Here's my one-paragraph pitch for the newsletter.  Thanks!

If you're looking for an enthusiastic, results-oriented entrepreneurial
project manager with a 10-year agency background who is accustomed to
developing for-profit and non-profit strategic campaigns aligned with
goals and objectives, I'd love to talk to you.  With a Masters of
Science degree in Communications Management, a B.A. in Journalism, an
accreditation in public relations, 15 years of public relations and
marketing experience, I can do what I've always done best for you,
too.enhance reputation, train, create top-of-mind awareness that leads
to purchase of a product, service
or concept.  Sometimes it also means positioning or repositioning to
achieve the goal.  Research, writing, communication audits,
communication plan development and implementation, crisis communications
and media relations.my cup of tea.

Communications Job Blog Launched

I met Ned Lundquist at the last Society of New Communications event in
Boston in 2006. He has been running an employment email since 2001. He
has 10,000 subscribers. He recently launched his new companion blog. If
you work in the communications business, I'd subscribe to his email
list. Ned also has a quirky sense of humor, he needs it, he works in
Washington DC!

Jobs for communicators

And horoscopes too!

My friend Ned Lundquist, who's been publishing the very popular Job of
the Week (10,000+ subscribers) as a mailing list, has recently launched
a Web site, Ned's Job of the Week (www.nedsjotw.com). If you're a
communicator seeking a job, check it out. Even if you're not looking for
work right now, you'll enjoy the comments from Ned and his readers. And
the communicators' horoscopes

Ned,
 
I thought I knew what you were opening the most recent JOTW with when
you wrote Kalai Vanakam, but I googled it to confirm. What did I find?
Turns out your Bengali phrase should have been kaalai vanakkam. Why do I
care? I have a running battle with one of my colleagues to say good
morning in as many different languages as possible…and this was a new
one! So thanks! And back atcha!
 
In case you care, you can actually find Kalai Vanakam on
IndianMatchmaker.com, where his hobbies and interests also are posted.

Do you know HR Managers, recruiters, and/or staffing firms in Sweden
looking for English speakers?
Do you know HR Managers, recruiters, and/or staffing firms in Sweden
looking for English speakers?

Happy New Year! My website www.JobsinStockholm.com helps English
speakers in Sweden find professional jobs. It launched on 23 November
2006 and now I am looking for clients who have a need for educated
English speakers to fill positions within their companies, or for their
clients.

How am I different than StepStone and Monster? I am focused solely on
English speakers in Sweden and serve a dynamic niche market which is
educated, experienced, and ready to work. Technology is used to enhance
the job seeker's experience, and I offer my clients results-based
pricing which is transparent and refreshing.

If you know of, or come across someone who fits this category (as well
as job seekers) please refer them to me at adrianne@jobsinstockholm.com
as well as directly to
www.JobsinStockholm.com.

Here's to good health and success in 2007!

Take care,

Adrianne

Hi, Ned.

Good seeing you the other week. if it's not too late for this week's 
JOTW, here's the info about my Jan. 19 book signing. Thanks!

Brad

Book signing. “No Higher Honor: Saving the USS Samuel B. Roberts in 
the Persian Gulf” (Naval Institute Press, 2006) by Bradley Peniston. 
Foreword by Adm. (ret.) William J. Crowe.

7 p.m., Friday, Jan. 19.
Borders Books, 6701 Frontier Dr., Springfield, VA 22150
(Near the Springfield Mall, just south of I-495.)

The book tells the story of the USS Samuel B. Roberts, a small U.S. 
warship dispatched to the Persian Gulf in 1988. Well-led and well-
trained, its crew had a perilous mission: to safeguard oil tankers 
through a combat zone that had turned them into targets. On 14 April, an
Iranian mine ripped open the Roberts' engineroom, ignited fires on four
decks, and plunged the ship into darkness. With seawater rising 
around their boots, the crew fought fire and flooding into the night. 
Four days later, the U.S. retaliated, sinking a half-dozen Iranian 
warships and boats in the world's biggest surface battle since World 
War II. (There's more at http://www.nohigherhonor.com.)

***  I should make you aware of the recommended, optional, suggested
JOTW policy that asks people who submit listings on behalf of their
employer to consider maybe possibly sending a company hat, mug or shirt
to JOTW, maybe, perhaps. 

*** This is your Job of the Week e-mail newsletter, a cooperative
service of professional communicators providing mutual support to one
another. The JOTW serves 10,153 professional communicators, and
growing every week.  Please help contribute job opportunities so that
this information can be shared with everyone in the network. The key to
successful networking is living by the golden rule.  Do something to
help a fellow communicator, and some day they may be in a position to
help you, or someone else like you.

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 cooperation is requested.  Please send job opportunities to share
with all JOTW members to lundquist989@cs.com.

If you want to subscribe to the free Job of the Week e-mail networking
newsletter for professional communicators, send a blank e-mail to:JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.

If you are adding an address, and want to delete one, or if you really
don't want to read the newsletter, send an email to: JOTW-unsubscribe@topica.com
