9 July 2007

“We have to abandon the idea that schooling is something restricted to

youth. How can it be, in a world where half the things a man knows at 20

are no longer true at 40 — and half the things he knows at 40 hadn't

been discovered when he was 20?”

– Arthur C. Clarke

I was meeting Mimi Carter for lunch at the University Club on 16th St. I am seated in one of the comfortable chairs in the foyer. A man comes up to me and says “Are you waiting for someone for lunch?”

“Yes,” I replied.

“Are you concerned with transparency? Are you Bob?”

“No,” I answered. “And you are not Mimi.”

“I'm still concerned with transparency,” he said as he walked away.

“Behind the Scenes with JOTW—A World in Communication”

If you live and work in the greater Washington area, chances are you know of Ned Lundquist, ABC, the founder and creator of “Job of the Week” or “JOTW,” the free e-newsletter that he started in 2001, and that now has more than 10,000 subscribers around the world.

Incoming Vice Chair of the IABC Accreditation Council, Ned has successfully created a virtual global community—or “JOTW-ers”—of communications professionals, who do everything from sharing job leads, to dispensing free, if quirky, career advice (via “Pimp My Job”), to showing the world their collection of shoes (see Indeed, “Nedworking” has become a part of the communications vocabulary—and not just in Washington!

This summer, IABC/Washington is proud to give you a real-world glimpse into the virtual phenomenon that is JOTW, and that started in our own backyard. Ned will lead a panel of JOTW-ers including Mike Sorohan and Marty Welles, who will talk about how and why they are JOTW-ers, bringing “Nedworking” to your doorstep—a great way to spend a midsummer’s evening in the DC metro area.

Do you have a “Nedworking” experience, or JOTW success story, to share? Bring it on! Do you want to be the “Dream Team” to pimp your job? We’re here for you! Maybe you’re new in town, just want to meet Ned and (finally) see what “the Cap’n” looks like”—come on over! And there will be a special contest with prizes for anyone who catches Ned and Mike laughing at each other’s jokes.

Don’t miss this once-in-a-blue moon event where you will take your “Nedworking” to a new level, and leave with a greater sense of how being part of a larger communications community enriches your life as a professional communicator.

I need two things. One, I need someone to design a logo for my companion newsletter, DEFCON 1, which currently is posted at Hopefully, come 1 January 2008, DEFCON 1 can have a website of its own, with its own look and identity.

I also need someone to help me design a rotating gif banner ad for IABC accreditation. I have some thoughts about how it should look, and what different messages I need it to present. I would like to make this available to other accredited members who have websites, and for IABC chapters to post on their websites.

Here's a little clarification of typical vacant job listing lingo…


We remain competitive by paying less than our competitors.


We have no time to train you and you'll have to introduce yourself to

your co-workers.


…who still live with their parents and won't mind our

internship-level salaries.


We don't pay enough to expect that you'll dress up; well, a couple of

the real daring guys wear ear rings.


We all listen to nutty motivational tapes.


You'll be six months behind schedule on your first day.


Some time each night and some time each weekend.


Anyone in the office can boss you around.


We have no quality control.


Unless you wasted those four years studying something useless like

philosophy or English.


We've filled the job; our call for resumes is just a legal formality.


You'll need it to replace three people who just left.


You're walking into a company in perpetual chaos.


You'll have the responsibilities of a manager, without the pay or respect.


Management communicates, you listen, figure out what they want, and then do it.
