If you want to change your e-mail from one address to another, you must unsubscribe the old e-mail address and subscribe from your new address yourself.  I cannot do it for you.  Please send a blank e-mail from your old address to JOTW-unsubscribe@topica.com, then a blank e-mail from JOTW-subscribe@topica.com from your new address.  I know this sounds simple, but I have learned from you many of you that this is a very hard thing to do on your own, and many of you ask me to do it for you – even

 

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. 

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. 

I never give out, rent, or sell my list, and neither does Topica.
This issue of JOTW is coming to you from the mobile JOTW command center near Cleveland, Ohio, where I will be speaking at a communicators conference for Time Warner.

***  One Paragraph Pitch:

Speechwriting & Communications Exec Relocating To The DC Area

Dear JOTW:

With our one and only daughter now successfully off to college (as of
August), we're now actively thinking about making the move back to the DC
area.  If I could line up LOTS of client business down there (I've been in
the New York City area since 1992), it's possible I could just move my
company, Ovations International, down to DC.  That doesn't seem very likely to me, however.  I could conceivably forge a strategic alliance with
another executive communications firm with a DC presence or perhaps establish Ovations as an executive communications practice within a larger PR agency.  Another possibility, of course, is to explore senior-level executive communications/PR positions with a company, association, agency or nonprofit — probably a large organization with global reach.

What's so special about me?  I'm the author of The Almanac of European
Politics and HabitForce!   I'm now finishing up my newest book, called
All The World's A Podium.  I'm a former House-leadership congressional aide.  I also worked as a senior-level speechwriter and corporate communications Executive at MCI, Pepsi-Cola International, and GTE before launching Ovations International in 1996.  As The Podium Pro, I work with people who want to overcome their fear of public speaking and with leaders who want to reach their Peak Podium Potential.  I offer a range of executive communications services, including senior-exectuve speechwriting and coaching services  and Podium Power workshops.  For more information, visit www.ovations.com

Thanks one and all.  If you know of a suitable opening or have any ideas
about how to generate speechwriting, coaching and consulting business in
the DC area, please get in touch.

Hope to see many of you soon in the DC area!

Best wishes,

Matthewmatthew@ovations.com

***  Golf ball:

 

Hey, Ned … I hope this note finds you well.

Shirley MacLaine once said (wisely) that the world is a golf ball.  I saw a
note in today's edition of the JOTW Newsletter from Stephane Abdullah who is a
staff sargeant presently stationed in the Middle East.

The “golf ball” part enters in because she was once a PR assistant to a very
close “sistah” friend of mine who was head of PR/Media for Warner Bros. 
Though I didn't work with Stephanie, I remember how much my friend appreciated and
admired her – both for her work and professionalism as well as her dedication
to being in service to one's country.

Most of all, I'm glad to “hear” that she's okay and is due back home in
March.  And I wish her every success in her future endeavors…

My best regards,

Denise Mc Iver

PS:  I don't know if you had a chance to “upload” my One Paragraph Pitch as yet … do you think it will be published in one of your upcoming issues? 

Thanks in advance, Ned …. And Happy Anniversary!!!!

***  I had a great visit to Houston where I helped IABC/Houston with judging for their Bronze Quill award entries.  I flew to Houston on Continental, and actually got corn flakes and raisins (I wasn’t expecting food).  It was Rodeo week, and the trail rides were coming into town from all over Texas.  Big Boots were strategically located at various points heading into Houston, each one brightly painted.  We had a terrific dinner at Brennan’s.  I loved the turtle soup.  I grabbed a couple of pralines on the way out the door.  My flight to Cleveland also featured a small meal, but I’ve become immune to the fact that nobody feeds you on planes anymore that I was quite surprised.

*** 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 10,143 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.  You show me yours, and I’ll show you mine.  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, then send an email to: JOTW-unsubscribe@topica.com
 
For corporate/HR recruiters:  I should make you aware of a new optional suggested policy for people submitting jobs on behalf of their company.  The recommendation is that a hat, coffee mug or T-shirt be considered for presentation to the JOTW staff.  If you do not have such things, then a trip to Aruba would be acceptable.
