“You have tiny chances to make things better with other people.”
– Alice Elliot Dark

JOTW is about sharing, and helping.  These are tiny chances.  But they
are chances you have to make a difference.

JOTW is an experiment dedicated to discovering the unanticipated
positive consequences of networking.  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.  Still not sure about
JOTW.or Ned?
http://www.hollandcomm.com/index.php?option=displaypage&Itemid=68&op=page

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 often received listings that require a lot of cutting or pasting, or
need follow-up info.  I don't have the time to do all of that.  Please
send concise listings in plain text.

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

I will be on travel this week to Newport, RI, then Houston, then
Cleveland.

Could you please post the attached job description (also embedded below)
on your website as soon as possible? And include in Monday's JOTW email
newsletter? Will I receive an email confirmation once the jobs are
posted on the website or is that only done on Mondays? While I'm a
subscriber, I've never posted before so I'm not quite sure how this
works!
 
Thanks,

(I post listings in the newsletter each Monday, and then post the
newsletter to the website.  It's free.  A special “Can't Wait” posting
can be arranged for your listings that will be sent to the entire 10,000

newsletter for $200.)

***  It just so happens I have been thinking about social marketing!

Hey Ned —

As I understand “social marketing”, especially as used by those in
public health, where I'm seeing this phrase more and more often, it's a
bit different from what John is describing, using 'social media” to
engage audiences and spark (or settle) interest in an organization.
Interested folks can check out the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's
Turning Point Initiative at www.turningpointprogram.org for more on the
public health perspective on 'social marketing'.

Each time I read about the new electronic marketing (must say I'm not
fond of the “evangelizing” moniker because it strikes me as just too
loaded of a term for professional use) I wonder how this concept is much
different from the work I did way back in my early career. We had
simpler tools, of course, it took longer before we got direct customer
feedback, and we called it something different, but what John describes
strikes me as an old-timey, grassroots political campaign.

The ultimate goal of our communications program was to motivate key
audience members to engage in a behavior (going to a poll, actually
voting for a candidate or issue). We worked targeted audiences through
awareness and ownership of the idea first. Those who were aware and on
board for voteswere targeted for additional behaviors (converting them
to donors and campaign volunteers).

It was data-driven (pollsters, anyone?).

We assessed our audiences carefully and crafted outreach tactics for
each sub-group (determining which messages resonated with different
groups, who their opinion leaders were, how to reach them, and what
other resources each group had upon which we could piggyback).

Media relations was just one part of the overall campaign (though a
critical one, of course).

We dealt with a lot of feedback (oh, the lengthy diatribes I have
listened to on the phone from ranting supporters!)

Yes, of course the time frames are compressed these days, and the tools
are different and present new challenges, (boy am I glad those rants
were one-on-one rather than broadcast to anyone who cared to spend time
reading them on a blog) but it does not strike me as all that “new” of a
notion.

And since I'm writing this to Ned, I can work in a pop music reference: 
I can't get the Talking Heads refrain “Same as it ever was” out of my
head while thinking about all of this.
 
Could it be that “social marketing” has arisen to mean something
separate from “public relations” because too many PR people have focused
solely on media relations for too long, and the industry needed a new
term to describe a more comprehensive approach?

Thanks to both you Ned and John for sparking this conversation, and I do
give the new technologies credit for making it possible … Oh wow, am I
evangelizing?

Best wishes,

Ann Mosherannmosher@comcast.net

***  Portable DVD Players for wounded Sailors and Marines

The Greater Washington Chapter of the Surface Navy Association Board of
Directors is collecting donations to help injured Sailors and Marines. 
The chapter will purchase portable DVD players for the Sailors and
Marines recovering at Bethesda National Naval Medical Center.  This is
follows last year's effort which resulted in the donation of more than
400 DVD movies last fall. 
Donations via credit card can be made by completing the information
below.  Checks (no cash, please) can be sent to the following address:

SNA GWC
ATTN:  GWC Service Project
2550 Huntington Ave., Suite 202
Alexandria, VA  22303
To donate:  https://www.navysna.org/Events/dvd/dvddonation.asp

(Ned Notes:  A portable DVD player costs about $100.  We want to be able
to issue one to each patient when they check into Bethesda.  GWC has
raised $3,800 so far.  Our goal is $5,000 by 15 March.  We are working
on getting a corporate discount from several sources, so our collected
funds can purchase gear for more of our shipmates.)

***  Report from Iraq:

Ed!
 
Your list is awesome….I had no idea that you were Navy…maybe I
havn't been reading it as intensely as I should. I am currently in Iraq.
I'm completing my year and will be gone very soon…literally in just
DAYS! WOW…I'm so excited to be out of this place. This is a joint
operation in every sense. My MOS in the Army is 46Q Public Affairs NCO.
This is my 19 year in the Army Reserve and this is my first deployment.
I am working at the MNCI Military History section in Baghdad. We are a 3
person section and we are the corporate office if you will for the
historical collection of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Normally, this is a strictly Army billet. However, my OIC is NAVY! CDR
Lynn Downing. She is Reserve as well. She was deployed as part of an
Army Civil Affairs unit. She ended up here because the gig became
available and she was in theatre and didn't have a defined mission. So,
we taught her about Army historical stuff and Viola! She's now the Corps
Level Historian of Operation Iraqi Freedom. In her civilian life she
works for Phillip Morris in Richmond, VA. There are so many Navy people
here and now the term Sandbox Sailor has been coined. Most of them are
doing 6 months tours, but many of the Sr. Officers are doing a year just
like the Army.

I just wanted to say hi to a fellow service member. And of course after
a year of working with the Navy there is now a warm spot in my heart for
the Sailors! 🙂 I will pass this along to my CDR. She is always happy to
do something a lil extra for the Sailors and Marines over here because
of there special relationship. Also, you know an Admiral is taking over
after Gen. Abazaid retires….that kind of floored me…but times are a
changing. I do work in PR in my civilian life….primarily freelance. I
always review your list even though I havn't been needing a job for over
a year since I have been mobilized for over a year. But, I will  be
leaving soon and definitely in the March time frame I will be looking
seriously! Again, thanks for what you are doing for the profession.

Some people who visit your site are mistaken in their perception that
they must “sign up” to “get in” to see the content.  That is not the

Perhaps you should consider doing a blog post that tells visitors-in

Ned,

From Dave Gai, retired Navy PAO:

Had a blast from the past last weekend at the home of one of my fellow
directors. Her husband and I are both former Sailors and Eagle Scouts.
In his “I love me room” is displayed several rare patches including the
1969 National Jamboree Idaho, an event my oldest brother actually
attended. My family and I were camping outside Coeur d'Alene at the
time. Pitching our tent in a steady 30 kt wind was becoming hilarious.
As my other brother was hammering in the tent pegs and trying to impress
the teenage girls trying to pitch their tent next to us, he accidentally
hit his knee with the hammer. To this day I've never forgotten the huge
goose egg on his knee and the bigger bruise on his pride.
