“An idea is salvation by imagination.”
– Frank Lloyd Wright

Welcome to the free Job of the Week e-mail networking newsletter for
professional communicators, dedicated to the positive unanticipated
consequences of “nedworking.”  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, I believe, the 665th edition of the JOTW newsletter, give or
take a couple.  All free. We now have more than 10,000 members of this
network.  The website (www.nedsjotw.com) had had 49,746 page views so
far this month as of yesterday.

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.

Roadrunner, roadrunner
Going faster miles an hour

I'm in love with Massachusetts
And the neon when it's cold outside
And the highway when it's late at night
Got the radio on
I'm like the roadrunner

Alright
I'm in love with modern moonlight

I'm in love with Massachusetts
I'm in love with the radio on
It helps me from being alone late at night
It helps me from being lonely late at night
I don't feel so bad now in the car
Don't feel so alone, got the radio on
Like the roadrunner
