JOTW 13-2007
27 March 2007

For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone;
  The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is
come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land;
    The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the
tender grape, give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come
away.
      – Song of Solomon

Welcome to the free Job of the Week e-mail networking newsletter for
professional communicators. 

This is NOT a newsletter that only serves people who are out of work and
looking for a job.

JOTW is a professional and personal network of people like you who are
communicators.  If you have a job, you are needed to help those who do
not.  We are all called to submit listings to share, to offer advice and
support, and to help lighten everyone's load, even if just a little.

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.  Many of
these jobs are found nowhere else.  Certainly this eclectic collection
of jobs is not to be found elsewhere.  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.

I can't change your e-mail address for you.  But you can.  Send a blank
e-mail from your old account to JOTW-unsubscribe@topica.com.  Then send

***  Ed Kavanaugh reminds us of divine comedy:
http://www.averagjoe.com/clips/church.wmv

***  Ned and Chris Denney talk about Aha! Moments:

Ned:  I'm talking with Chris Denney, Creative Director at Imre
Communications (www.imrecommunications.com), about achieving that “Aha!”  moment.  I mentioned how I used to have lots of Aha moments while mowing the lawn, but now I have a teenager who actually likes to do that.

Chris:  An Aha! moment can be a thought out of the blue, or one you have
been pondering. It can be an experience…having a child, your first
bike successful bike ride…anything when whatever you are doing you go
Aha!, I've got it.
 
Ned:  I have lots of “Aha!” moments in the shower.  I used to have them
when I mowed the lawn, but I have a teenager who actually likes to mow
the lawn.  But those revelations are often accidental.  A chance
encounter as it were.  Can you create an “Aha!” for someone who needs
one?
 
Chris:  Ned, let's face it, there is very little in our ponderings
that's accidental. Perhaps it's the fact that you're taking a shower and
are not at work that inspires an Aha! Moment. 

People are always seeking inspiration and creativity. At Imre, we
understand that.  Of course, we strive to inspire Aha! Moments because
that's our business. We start with a thorough understanding of our
client's goals.  We add our experience in the marketplace. Throw in our
talented and creative people, and well, you have the recipe for Aha!
Moments down.

Ned:  Not accidental?  Hmmmm. So how do you create these Aha! Moments at
Imre?

Chris:  We constantly support creative thinking. We get personal with
it…we live it.  We love what we do, so it's not “work”, it's what we
want to create.  It's not just the best people who work at Imre, it's
the most inspired people. Our brainstorms, meetings, conference
calls…they all have an element of fun and playfulness that creativity
strives in.  We're serious, too, but we're always thinking, always
improving each other…and ultimately
coming away with the best solutions for our client's.

Ned: So Aha! moments are about inspiration?

Chris: That's right. What inspired you to get your teenager to mow the
lawn?  You had a need, you thought it out, and you created an Aha!
Moment. At Imre, we're inspired by our work and our client's needs. We
seek Aha! Moments in the small and the big. Anything that gets results.
And believe us, there's no better Aha! Moment for us than the one when
the client says, “Great job”.

Ned:  I asked JOTW readers to tell me about their Aha! Moments (along
with most gratifying volunteer experiences).  Let's look at some.

***  Aha! And Volunteer moments:

I have Aha! moments whenever my mind is occupied with anything other
than the solution I am seeking: when I am sleeping, exercising, or
driving especially.  Sometimes I can force a mini-Aha by doing a brain
dump onto paper or keyboard.  When I can see everything I know about
something and maybe reorganize that knowledge, I can see the Aha.  It
might be about something minor, like a special recipe (my hobby is
gourmet cooking) or a holiday outing, or it could be a breakthrough on a
communications plan for a product launch.
 
My most memorable volunteer moments are unscripted as well.  The one
that sticks in my head: while leaving the locker room at the fitness
center, I noticed an elderly woman seated at the mirror, combing her
hair.  She could not raise her arms high enough and was tipping her head
down to meet her struggling hands.  I dropped my bags, took the comb and
began to groom her hair, using the blow-dryer and chatting with her
until her hair was dry and neat.  She was very grateful, and other women
in the locker room stopped to whisper appreciation in my ear. 
 
The most memorable organized volunteer moments came from volunteering
with Interfaith Hospitality Service, through which churches turn into
hostels for homeless families for a week at a time – rotating from
location to location.  I have cooked and served meals, gotten children
ready for bed, helped with homework and crafts, and given frazzled
parents a break (and an adult to talk with).  Feels good – reeeeaaalll
good.

***  Aha! And Volunteer experience:

I suspect everyone's wracking their brains out trying to come up with
THAT “Aha!” moment. I have to answer this in two parts – one
professionally the second personally

I believe my business life has been a constant series of “Aha!'s” As
creative director of our former advertising/communications agency for 25
years, I had the pleasure of working with outstanding creative talents.
We were challenged every day by our clients needs. And every day our
team would come through. It was a process of providing them with the
space they needed, enough time to ponder and the encouragement they
craved… “Aha!” moments always followed. Every day. For 25 years. And
each moment provided the energy to move on to the next moment.

Now in my new 'life' as a proprietor of a country store, my life is
dramatically different. Different challenges, different stress,
different rewards. And different “Aha!'s” Most significant is each time
I see my little 1 1/2 year old grandson, I have to stop and catch my
breath. I always say to myself – “this is MY grandson… WOW.” And each
time is an “Aha!” moment. Nowadays the moments are more pure.

I've been a volunteer in the Boy Scouts for 45 years now and have done
it all at every level… from the grass roots to the boardroom. “My most
gratifying volunteer experience” is attending one of 'my' Scout's Eagle
Ceremony. When the formal event is over and the new Eagle Scout walks up
to me and as an awkward young adult shakes my hand and says a simple
“thank you' – I can feel the emotion in his heart that tells me that the
time I've put in has been worth it. There's no better moment than that.

***  From Faye Rapoport DesPres::

Aha! Moment
 
I was sitting at my computer one day pouring through freelance writing
Web sites when I realized that in order to concentrate better and be
more professional I'd have to move my cat off my lap, sit up straight
and work harder.  The problem was, I wasn't enjoying what I was doing
and my cat, who was purring loudly, didn't want to move.  As I sat there
realizing that I was enjoying my cat more than I was enjoying looking
for work, it occurred to me that I could create my own work, writing
about something I love — animals — connecting with other animal lovers
and finding ways to help non-profit organizations that work to rescue or
protect both pets and wildlife.  And so, “Our Place to Paws” was born,
first an e-newsletter, and now a Web site and
blog(www.ourplacetopaws.com and www.ourplacetopaws.blogspot.com).  The
project is at its beginnings, and I'm not sure how I'll make any money,
but when I started working on it I realized that I could sit at my
computer for hours and actually enjoy what I was doing and feel good
about it!  The first few times people wrote in to contribute photos, say
they were enjoying the e-newsletter, or thank me for helping to
publicize an animal seeking a home, I knew I was on the right track. (Of
course, I still do other freelance work!)
 
Most Gratifying Volunteer Experience Ever
 
I volunteered to write a press release for a very good friend's animal
art and pet portrait studio, Dey by Dey Studio (
www.deybydeystudio.com)
when my friend was facing a lot of challenges in her life and wondering
if her new business would ever make it.  After years of working in
science, she was following her dream to pursue animal art
professionally, and it was tough going.  I wrote two releases for her,
posted them on PRWeb, sent them around a little and even threw in the
PRWeb fee.  It made a huge difference to her to see her business name in
“print.”  She used the releases to garner her first real group of orders
and received many compliments, and she started donating 10% of her
proceeds to animal rescue organizations.  Hearing how thrilled she was
to be getting orders and to be booked with projects through the holidays
was worth every minute and every cent of my little pro bono effort!

Another volunteer moment…
 
I volunteered to help urban teenagers with a yearbook project, in a
school for delinquent boys in upstate New York.  These were generally
children from extremely troubled backgrounds who had seen everything
from gang violence to worse.  Seeing them express interest in writing
something and putting together a project was a very special experience. 
If there was even a moment of innocence on their faces as they
concentrated on something, it was like a window into what might have
been.  Each day I left that classroom thinking what love, support and
stability in the home and neighborhood could have done to change the
destinies of these boys.  I know that my friend who teaches there
professionally gains a great deal of satisfaction each time even one of
them moves on to a relatively normal life.

***  From Sonja Johnson:

Hi Ned,

For me, the most gratifying volunteer experience was working with the
Camp Fire USA Teens in Action at the January 2007 NBC4 Health Fair.
These kids are from at-risk homes in the DC area, and have learned about
self-reliance, leadership, and service through the Teens in Action
program. They presented 2 programs at the Health Fair: a puppet show on
self-esteem and an original play on driving
safety. The driving safety play reached the semi-finals of the State
Farm Project Ignition competition, placing 11th overall (the highest
place ever for a first time group entry).
 
Best,
Sonja

***  Connie Eckard cares:

Ned:

Without a doubt, the most meaningful volunteer experience in my life was
serving on the board of The Arc of Tri-Cities, here in eastern
Washington.  The Arc supports individuals with developmental
disabilities and their families.  Before my board experience, I did not
see these people.  I could look right at them and not see them.  I had
to learn that these are people first.  They have dreams and goals and
desires just like I do.  Only when I comprehended this were my eyes
opened.  My experience with The Arc and its clients has had an impact on
the way I approach a lot of things in life.  I'm no longer on the board,
but I continue to provide public relations advice and counsel.

My most recent “Aha!” was when I working on my taxes about 2 a.m., and
realized that I should have kept better records last year —
particularly those nine weeks I was teaching in Thailand.

Thanks for your support.  -Connie

***  Gratifying volunteer experiences:

Ned:
In response to your volunteer question, I've been involved in scores of
volunteer programs over the years since it has usually been my lot to
direct the company community involvement function, as well as my
personal commitment in lots of church-related activities. But overall,
the most gratifying volunteer work I've done has been with the Boy
Scouts.
 
Frustrating at times? Yes. Rewarding at times? Again, yes.
 
I could cite many examples of seeing otherwise rudderless 'tweens enter
a troop and come out as goal-oriented young men with skills, values,
character and vision. One of my best examples is what we have
accomplished with Troop 281 here in San Antonio. It's a small troop that
started exactly four years ago. In that time, we have had six Eagle
Scouts, with what we hope will be No. 7 headed for his final board of
review in April.
 
Our first three Eagle Scouts, including my son, are now freshmen in
college and all three earned scholarships in part because they were
Eagle Scouts: one to Baylor University; one to Southwestern University
in Georgetown, Texas; and one an appointment to the Air Force Academy.
Those scholarships represent dollars-and-cents rewards for their hard
work. Show me the money!
 
Not all, in fact most, boys don't make it. But it's certainly satisfying
to see boys earn an honor that will pay off, literally at times,
throughout life.
 
Regards,
Paul Hart, APR
San Antonio

***  From Adrianne George:

I went to Catholic High School in Washington, DC.  As seniors we had to
take a course called “Love in Action”.  We were tasked with finding a
volunteer job to work after school.  At the time my father worked with
the National park Service and got me a volunteer job with Traveler's Aid
at Union Station.
 
Everyday after school I would go and work with one or two adults in the
Traveler's Aid booth.  I never even knew those people were there, and it
wasn't until one day that I learned how important a service they
provided.
 
A women came to us looking weary and scared.  She said that she had come
to Washington, DC for a party with a man.  They drove in from
Philadelphia, and he left her stranded in Washington, DC with no money. 
It had been two days.  She had no where to go and no way to get back to
Philadelphia.  Further more, she had no one in Philadelphia who could
help her.
 
As a 17 year old I couldn't imagine being in that situation, with no one
to turn to but strangers.  My adult colleagues and I comforted this
woman and told her not to worry.  The adults arranged a train ticket for
her and food and counseled her never to do anything like that again.
 
It was my most gratifying volunteer experience including serving as
co-chair of the peacemaking and social justice committee at my church
and working at a homeless shelter.  Not only did I see what a difference
caring can make to a person, it also made me extremely grateful for the
family and resources that I had.  At 17 it was a huge lesson.

***  Aha!

Although I have had many “aha moments,” one of my more recent ones
occurred as a grad student, believe it or not. For years, we have known
what barriers exist in the workplace when it comes to PR. Senior
managers don't view us as adding any value because they assume that we
lack business acumen. Consequently,  we're left out of key meetings and
stuck in our offices or cubes cranking out press releases, pitching news
stories and counting press clippings. In some corporate environments,
this is true and it was my experience working in a corporate PR position
from 2001 to 2004.
 
Many PR professionals do lack business sense. For years, I thought that
goodwill had more to do with volunteering and community relations than
with an item on a balance sheet. It wasn't until I went to Syracuse
University and took business courses that I actually understood that
goodwill encompasses so much more. If we expect to grow, we have to take
it upon ourselves to understand the roles of business. To some degree, I
find I'm still a little lost, but I've been able to get a basis for what
I need to know to be successful and I've learned to speak the same
language as senior managers do. This is more than I had before.
Unfortunately, while they say that the workplace is supposed to be the
best classroom out there, most often, there just isn't time to teach and
mentor the people who need it most when productivity and profitability
are the main objectives. Therefore, if you want to prove your worth and
the value of PR, you have to not only take initiative internally by
learning the business inside and out, you also have to take steps to
educate yourself  — and show that evidence to senior management.
 
In terms of volunteering, I've learned a number of things, including:
 
– That when you work with volunteers, you have to understand that there
will be some who will work harder than others and you have to make
accommodations and learn to take nothing personally.
 
– That when you don't ask for things (like money, time, etc), you won't
ever know what you will get. But when you do ask, you might be surprised
at how generous people can be. I learned this when I was raising money
for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in 1999. As a bachelorette in a date
auction for CF, I was told that I had to raise a minimum of $2000 and
plan a date package with all items donated. When I heard this and
knowing that I didn't have a lot of contacts at the time, I felt a pit
in the bottom of my stomach. But, I didn't let it affect me for too
long. I got out there, sent letters and self-addressed, stamped
envelopes to everyone I knew and in a matter of weeks, donations we
rolling in and I was well on my way to meeting my goal. I also took it
upon myself to tell other businesses what I was doing and I asked for
their help. I was able to plan a beer tasting that resulted in a tax
write-off for the bar that hosted it and additional funds for the
Foundation. You just have to be willing to get out there and make a
difference. Sitting on the sidelines just won't cut it.
 
– Philanthropy has a direct relationship and impact to profitability.
Organizations who take part in volunteering and community relations
projects have a stronger reputation in the marketplace.
 
Hope this helps.

***  From Angela Sinickas, ABC:

Ned, most of my ahas come when looking at research data and a story, or
a connection, or a surprising conclusion swims to the surface.

Angela

***  From Donna Papacosta:

Sometimes I think we need to give ourselves permission to let our minds
wander. You can't always be creative when you're hovering over the
keyboard. I will consciously analyze a problem or issue and then let it
go. THEN the AHA moment comes when it's ready. Examples: coming up with
the name for a client newsletter, or a format for their podcast, or an
angle for a tricky article, or the name of an expert to be interviewed.
The list goes on…

Hope this helps.
Cheers,
Donna

***  From Debra Bethard-Caplick, APR:

Ned,
 
I wish I could offer you some for either situation, but my experience
(professionally, at least) has been just the opposite. Remember that
research project for my master's degree last summer? I ended up doing
that because I could find NO ONE in a PR agency or nonprofit department
that would allow me to volunteer as an intern. Everyone I approached
reacted as if I were attempting to steal trade secrets. I mean, really –
a summer's worth of free labor in exchange for a review at the end of
the time period? Especially for some of the nonprofits? I would have
thought they would have jumped at the chance, especially since the free
labor would be coming from someone who's been out there for a few years,
not some giddy college kid without the least experience working in an
office.
 
As for an Aha! moment, mine was when I finally realized that I had
unrealistic expectations for people – I expected them to act like grown
ups when we got out of college and got jobs, not just oversized little
kids in a much bigger and more expensive sandbox. Once I realized that,
it was easier to function at work. Now, if I could just figure out how
to make the “time-outs” stick.
 
Debra

p.s. – It would be nice if one of the big professional societies (PRSA,
IABC, you listening?) would step up and help coordinate internships in
situations like this.
 
Debra

***  Ned's Aha! Moment:

Two years ago I was on a hike up Old Rag Mountain in Shenandoah National
Park with the older Scouts who were getting ready for our expedition to
Philmont Scout ranch in New Mexico.  Old Rag was a steep and rocky
trail, and it was cold enough that we would see snow later.  Most of the
boys were ahead of us.  One of the other adults, Jan Ithier, was hiking
with me, as was my son Tom.  Jan was jokingly kidding about the
difficulty of the hike and said something like “What am I doing?  Why am
I doing this?”  Tom answered right away. “You're doing it for Jan Paul,”
said Tom, referring to Jan's son who was up ahead.  I was very impressed
with Tom's insight.  That was an “Aha!” moment.  But I asked Tom, “Why
am I doing this?”  He didn't hesitate.  “You're doing this for me.  Then
I asked him one more question.  “Who are you doing this for?”  He said,
“I'm doing this for me.”  Aha!

***  Prying into Christine Kuhinka's life:

Dear Ned,

How are you? Hopefully, well.

Recently, you asked for feedback regarding the “most gratifying
volunteer experience” ever.  Since I have volunteered extensively over
the years, I could recount many gratifying volunteer experiences as a
hospice volunteer, tutoring disadvantaged children or renovating inner
city houses.  However, you asked for the most gratifying experience.

In 1993, I volunteered my services to help the people in Le Grange, MO
rebuild their lives after the Mississippi river had flooded their homes.
 In 100 degree weather, I removed floor boards and dry wall and emptied
basements filled with raw sewage.  For my efforts, I was christened the
“crowbar queen” by my fellow volunteers.

By giving to others, our own lives are enriched.

Best wishes,

Christine

***  Mulch:

I am still spreading mulch in my yard.  We bought 50 bags from the
Scouts, then another ten because they had some left over.  Altogether
our unit, Troop 859 in Springfield, VA, sold more than 22,000 bags this
year of premium select hardwood mulch.  Tom and I put in just eight
hours delivering mulch this year.  Usually we work much longer.  As a
good professional communicator I did manage to get my Scouts on the
front page of the Springfield Times
(http://www.timescommunity.com/site/tab5.cfm?newsid=18116760&BRD=2553&PAG=461&dept_id=511694&rfi=6).

Yesterday was a very pleasant day to work in the yard.  I carried some
of the mulch down the primrose path, so called because my primroses are
blooming there now.

Tom and I attended the Order of the Arrow Lodge Fellowship at Camp
Snyder this weekend.   This camp was at one time property held by Disney
to be used as overflow parking for its ill-fated theme park it was
planning for Prince William County near the Manassas battlefield. 
Across the street, a huge housing development was built, but this
subdivision affected wetlands.  So the builders teamed up with
conservationists and the Boy Scouts to create a huge wetlands mitigation
project at Camp Snyder.  You can read about the North Fork Wetlands Bank
