*** Weekly Piracy Report

…and as always, more than you have a right to expect!

*** One Paragraph Pitch:

Dear Ned:

Thanks again, Ned, for providing us with this newsletter. Each week it provides excellent career information in addition to giving your readers pause to think about the provoking quotes.

Here’s my one-paragraph pitch:

I’ve recently relocated to the NYC area, and I’m seeking a position with either a major publishing house, PR agency or communications company which would allow me ample opportunity to fully utilize my extensive experience (over 10 years) as a publicist/media relations practitioner and writer. My professional background includes pitching media, mining stories for placement, developing and launching all-inclusive media campaigns, and budget creation for several entertainment, corporate and nonprofit companies, teaching Entertainment PR principles at Cal State Fullerton, writing entertainment-focused feature-length articles and television/concert/book reviews for such publications as DAILY VARIETY, BOOK and UPSCALE, and editing a nonfiction book which was published by Random House. I take a pro-active, customer service-oriented approach to PR, relish the challenge of launching a creative campaign, and have built strong working relationships with media personnel. I should mention that I’m interested in either full-time or independently contracted employment. If you’d like additional information, you’re cordially invited to contact me at either (323) 229-9409 or via email at dmciver167@aol.com.

Thanks, Ned, for all that you do…

Best regards,

Denise L. Mc Iver

Enjoyed the wonderful, colorful imagery in your daughter's poem. Thanks for

sharing it, she is a very talented and creative young lady! Please encourage

her to keep writing.

Resume posting feature, very cool.

Congrats on your conference gig. Bob & I will be in New Orleans & hope to

see you there.

P.S. A limited-edition American Travel Sampler t-shirt is headed your way.

Cheers,

*** It’s not what you know, it’s who you know:

Speaking of small world stories, like the one mentioned in the June 4 issue about the bicyclist/PR guy who knows you…

Remember that first time we met at IABC? I noticed you because you were wearing your dress whites, and then I recognized your name on the badge because I had just been part of the judging team that awarded you a Gold Quill and the first-ever Jake Wittmer Award. During our first conversation, we quickly identified that you were in the service with a guy that I was in high school theatre with, Vytas Lukas. I don't know if it's really a small world, Ned. It's just that you know pretty darn near everyone in it!

Angela

(By the way, if you attend the IABC Conference in New Orleans, stop by and say hello to Angela at the Sinickas Communications booth in the exhibition hall. Tell her you saw her sponsorship of JOTW and she will give you a Snickers bar.)

*** You can now post your resume for free on the JOTW website. Many of you already have. Check it out:

http://www.nedsjotw.com/blog/JOTWForum

But do us all a favor, especially yourself, if you post a resume, and include information about how you can be contacted. I’m rather partial to resumes with complete names, too. In fact, I will delete resumes later this week which do not have a name. Please note that you cannot edit your resume once posted, so you’ll have to ask me to delete it, then submit a new one if you need to make changes.

Please submit just one resume. I’ll delete duplicates. When I delete the duplicate, do not resubmit.

*** Laura and Barbara went to Chesapeake this weekend to walk in the “Relay for Life.” Tom and I went to Camp Nanticoke at Henson Scout Reservation at the Maryland-Delaware line for the Section NE-4C Order of the Arrow Conclave, I only found three ticks on me, or so.

Ned:

Looks like a great service! Thanks! But … I saw the sample resume. Do we have to post them in Latin?

Ken Colombini

(In publicatus expectorum.)

*** TMI?

Hello….And thanks so much for all of your efforts.

Have a quick question, which may appear goofy, but…..if one submits one's resume, should address and phone be removed, only leaving email address for contact info?

Just wondering what the policy is….

Thanks so much!

Karen

(Up to you. I have no policy about what you have to say about yourself.)

*** Unsolicited feedback:

Ned –

Fred Powledge's comments were (1) technically correct, (2) strategically incorrect. Why? Because, although he knows the difference between”it's” and “its,” he did not receive an “unsolicited e-mail” from you, dear Ned. He either (1) subscribed to your newsletter or (2) received it when a friend forwarded it to him. My guess is the latter. My guess is that the friend thought Mr. Powledge could use some new job leads. My guess is that Mr. Powledge is not going to find them among this extensive network of communications professionals.

As to the definition of “sharing,” I would suggest that Mr. Powledge, Writer, check his reference books. I suspect he has the time.

Kris Gallagher, ABC

(I came upon a list of officers or members of some group of editors on the web, and sent them individually an email inviting them to join the network.)

Nevertheless, his reply to you was unkind. A simple “no thanks” would have sufficed.

Kris

*** From Larry:

Gee, Its nice to see that I'm not the only one who makes misstakes and then hears about it from

my subscribers!

*** In or out?

It never ceases to amaze me how self-important some people are. I bet it just made Fred's day to point out a mistake. In the spirit of unsolicited emails, such as the one he wrote to you, I have a few suggestions for him:

(1) remember which list(s) you opt in to, (2) leave the house at times – it may teach you some manners and respect for other individuals and (3) there should have been an “and” between your first and second examples.

MB

(He didn't “opt in” to my list. I sent him an email inviting him to join our network.)

That would make mine the unsolicited email then 😉

*** From Robert Holland, ABC:

I'm leading a Webinar on how to measure the business value of your

communications in common-sense steps on Tuesday, July 17 from 3 to 4:30 pm EDT. The Webinar is presented by Ragan Communications, the leader in training for communication professionals.

*** From Philip Raskin, who reads JOTW and follows basketball from Korea:

Though the NBA Finals are still underway (minus my main man and last year's hero Dwyane Wade), it's never too early to start thinking about next year. Particularly if you have the first pick in the draft. So if you're a techie marketer type of person, you may be interested. Of course, just e-mailing “WE HAVE GREG ODEN!!! ha HA!!” over and over may not be that challenging, but whatever. Either way, they write fun job descriptions.
