Dear Ned,

 

Please consider the following one paragraph pitch for inclusion in JOTW newsletter. Thank you very much for providing this service.

 

Cheers,

OOP:

It is apparent that more and more television stations and public relations firms are targeting the growing segment of Hispanics in the United States. A professional from this community as part of your team that can relate to this public and the broader population can only have a positive impact in your numbers of viewers and/or clients.

As a bilingual journalist with extensive on-camera experience working with international, national and local television in both English and Spanish, I can make a valuable contribution to an organization. I also have extensive background in public relations and communications fields. In brief, I am interested in a position as an anchor, reporter, or public relations professional.

***  Pimp My Job:

 

Ethics–or lack thereof–in the workplace raises questions that can be difficult to address. Especially when your boss is involved. See what the “Pimp My Job” Dream Team advised an employee in “Sell Your Soul for Charity.” Go to http://pimpmyjob.blogdrive.com/ for details.

 

Do you have a pressing and perplex professional problem that’s having an adverse impact on your personal life?  Then contact the Pimp My Job Dream Team for prompt relief.

 

***  What changed everything?

 

Copernicus was right.  The impact of his theory of heliocentricity had a profound influence on intellectual thought.  But that couldn’t compare with Tang, the beverage of astronauts.  See the results of last week’s poll at www.nedsjotw.com.

 

Take this week’s JOTW survey at www.nedsjotw.com.  This week’s question:  “Which do you prefer?”

 

***  How many shoes do you have?

 

Eleven pairs dress shoes, including two pairs of dress boots; one pair sneakers, plus one in a box waiting for these ones to wear out: one pair hiking boots; one shared pair of snowboots (my husband and I have similarly sized feet); plus two pairs of Teva sandals. I don't think my wedding shoes count, since I can't get into them anymore (pregnancy can make your feet grow) and they are packed away with the dress.

 

More than most guys. Way less than most women. If you want shoes, stick with Angela.

 

Kris

 

(JOTW’s public service campaign for January takes on the issue of women’s shoes.  How many is enough.  Our poster child is Angela.  How many shoes does she have?  We measure them, foot by foot.  http://www.nedsjotw.com/blog/MyShoes/AngelasShoes.)

 

***  From JH:

 

What is the most effective form of foreplay?

Dr. Amen: Foot rubs and shopping for shoes are wonderful forms of foreplay. Most people do not know that the area of the brain that feels the feet is right next door to the area of the brain that feels the genitals. When he says rub my feet, know that you are likely to get lucky tonight. When she wants you to go with her to buy shoes, think of it as a hot date. You, not the store clerk, should be putting the shoes on her.

 

Maybe that's why Angela — and most women — have so many pairs of shoes!

***  The Manchu Wok in the Pentagon has closed.  I guess General Tsao has been deployed to Iraq.

 

***  From Rachel:

 

Hi,

 

May I suggest that you add this notification that your newsletter is posted online to the other email – perhaps at the top of the email? This way, we all just get one email versus two…

 

Thanks,

Rachel

 

***  Selective subscriptions:

 

Hi Ned,

 

I enjoy getting the newsletter, but I wouldn't mind skipping the

announcement that the newsletter's been posted to the website.

 

Could I unsubscribe from the website announcement?  Or could you mention that at the top of the newsletter?  I'm afraid receiving two emails may appear a bit redundant.

 

Thanks so much for your consideration.

 

Best,

R K

 

(No.  Here's why.  First, I am not always successful in uploading the newsletter to the website.  Second, for some reason many people do not get the longer version of the newsletter because it's too big.  So the follow up often reaches many subscribers who otherwise would not know the newsletter is ready to read.  If you unsubscribe from the list you will not get any postings I send out.)

 

***  Changing email subscription for JOTW:

 

I can't change your subscription for you.  You can, however.

 

Send a blank email from your old address to JOTW-unsubscribe@topica.com.  Then send a blank email from your new address to JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.

 

***  Mega-JOTW:

 

Ned,

 

Now that's what I call a great issue! Mega jobs in the Post be dammed, this week's JOTW was full of exciting, challenging and interesting opportunities.

 

Every now and then I feel the need to tell you what a great service you provide. And yes, I have gotten jobs through JOTW, and posted and filled jobs here as well.

 

John Friedman

 

***  Feedback:

 

Sometimes I get feedback like this:

 

Ned,

 

Thanks so much for all of the referrals! I am speaking with some great

people!  I so appreciate your time and fabulous resources! Keep them

coming!

 

***  Feedback:  Sometimes I get feedback like this:

 

Please do not post any job listing from me on your Topica group again. I don’t know where you saw my request, as I posted it only to two specific groups.  I already had filled those positions before you posted it, and have since been inundated with emails and phone calls from your subscribers.  Again, it seems like a poor practice to post a listing without permission.

 

(Shame on you!  Communicators share.  That's what we do.  Communicate.  Someone sent it to me to share with my network.  The subject line of the e-mail said: 

 

… please feel free to share with others…

 

You got lots of qualified candidates, and instead of saying “thanks but I already filled this job” you are giving me some attitude. 

 

Next time make it very clear that you do not want people who read your posting to share it.

 

Now go to your room without dinner.)

 

She replies:

 

Qualified candidates? Communicators are not journalists by default. That’s why I sent my request to journalism listservs.

 

Just a sampling of your “qualified applicants” that continue to spam me:

 

“Part of my job as a business development manager for a law firm is having a very strong sense of restaurants in order to meet our client needs.”

 

“I am a seasoned communications pro in Washington, D.C. area looking for some writing projects.” 

 

“I live in Los Angeles (well, Pasadena, actually) but am familiar with San Diego and have my own communication consulting business. “

 

“I work full-time in internal corporate communications and often write 100-word articles and feature stories for our internal website.”

 

“I am the director of content for a national nonprofit organization in the Washington metro area.”

 

“Like so many other people in DC, I currently work for a government contractor.”

 

“Currently, I am a communications director assigned to the Department of Homeland Security, so as you may imagine, I am desperate for a creative outlet.”

 

Once again, thanks but no thanks.

 

(And this from the person who sent the lead)

 

Good for you! I LOVED your email to her!  I’ve tried not sending you things that say don’t post anywhere else – I learned my lesson from previous scoldings!! But her posting said no such thing. What a nasty email!  You are SO right! Communicators DO share – at least good ones who have good hearts and are good citizens of the communication world and the world at large!

 

Thanks for sharing!!! You are the BEST!!! I’ll try to continue to be careful when people explicitly say “only to this list” or “don’t share” – but if they don’t, it’s open season in my book!

 

(And this…)

 

Part of posting a job is getting applicants and because everyone wants a job in communications, she’s going to get a mass of inquiries. I would think that she would want a vast selection in order to know she made the best choice in hiring. As far as the number being high, get used to it. If she doesn’t want to talk to people, don’t pick up the phone. That’s what voicemail is for. And for e-mail, just hit the delete key. It’s not that hard to do.

 

I don’t know this woman, but she doesn’t sound too professional. I wouldn’t want to work for her.

 

***  So let’s get started with the jobs for this week…

TERENA, the Trans-European Research and Education Networking Association, offers a forum for collaboration, innovation and knowledge sharing in order to foster the development of Internet technology, infrastructure and services to be used by the research and education community.

The development and progress in Internet technology have been led by the research community since the very beginning of the Internet. Today, that community is still the main driver of the further development of the Internet. In Europe, this leading role is made possible by the collaboration of network engineers and managers from all over the region, facilitated and supported by TERENA. The association's core business is to bring together managers, technical specialists and other people in the research networking community with their counterparts from other countries in Europe, mobilising the expertise and experience of hundreds of professionals in the research and education networking area. Many of the people who participate in TERENA task forces, projects, conferences or workshops are not employees of TERENA member organisations but work in the wider research networking community, for example, in universities, research institutes or in industry.

The TERENA Secretariat is a small team of about 15 people and is housed in the Amsterdam city centre. It consists of a technical staff, which manages the Technical Programme of task forces and projects and provides technical support to all of TERENA's activities, and an administrative staff, which supports TERENA's executive bodies, takes care of the organisation of conferences and workshops and provides administrative and financial support.

Preferably a combined background in communications and a relevant science field.

Experience in PR and information dissemination in an international, non-commercial environment, with a demonstrated affinity with the Internet and research or education.

Very good English writing, editing and presentation skills.
