JOTW 19-2007

“He who binds himself to a joy
Does the winged life destroy
But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in eternity's sunrise.”
-William Blake, Eternity

Ned and Laura are in Tuscany.  Uma Thangaraj has graciously volunteered
to host the JOTW network in Ned's absence. 

I decided to do away with the job listings.  And focus on just a
commentary.  Not really.  I decided to do away with the numbered
listings and instead, the jobs are presented in the body of the
newsletter.  There.  That made it easier to swallow, didn't it?

You will be glad when Ned returns.  I promise. 

Welcome to the free Job of the Week, the award-winning e-mail networking
newsletter for professional communicators.  JOTW is a cooperative
service that relies on the contributions of its members, like you. 
First of all, it doesn't cost you a cent.  I know that for some of you
this is somewhat of a shock, that something of real value has no cost or
expense.  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.

Ned never gives out, rents, or sells his list, and neither does Topica.

***  Our May 2007 JOTW sponsor is McArthur Communications:
 
Communicating with video is more than just boardroom presentations, it's
now cell phones,  web sites, digital signage, and Blu-ray or HD DVD discs
that theoretically hold over 200 gigabytes!

It's hard to say what's next and when.

Regardless of delivery mode or media, effective video communications
require professional skills and lots of creativity.

We've been developing award-winning presentations and television spots
since 1993.  Visit our web site and imagine how we can put our creative
services to work for you.
