JOTW 29-2007

” The measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he never would be found out.”

– Thomas Macauley

Welcome to the award-winning free Job of the Week e-mail networking newsletter for

professional communicators.

It's all about 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? If you want to accelerate your job announcement, you can pay a modest service charge to list your opportunity as a “Can’t Wait” posting that will go out right away. Your friends can sign up for JOTW for free by sending a blank e-mail to JOTW-subscribe@topica.com. It's free for them, too, if I forgot to mention that.

To change your e-mail address for your JOTW subscription, you need to unsubscribe from your old address by sending a blank e-mail to JOTW-unsubscribe@topica.com.

Then send a blank e-mail from your new address to JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.

I never give out, rent, or sell my list, and neither does Topica. You can send an announcement to this network for a modest fee, to enable Ned to buy dog food and kitty litter.

Carl Dombek

*** Wake up call:

Even if I am too busy to read each job opening, I still take time to read your opening quote and comments – many a Monday morning, Ned's humor has been the perfect accompaniment to my first cup of coffee. Living here in rural PA, many jobs are out of my reach geographically, but I get a good sense of where the the great communications jobs are located and what skills are required in order to continue to update myself. The “One Paragraph Pitch” is probably more of a personal growth experience actually, because it compels the writer to succinctly articulate their unique selling proposition – or maybe in my case, discover that we don't have one! Although I work in manufacturing today, as I move into the next phase of my life, I would like to work for a non-profit, and JOTW gives me a lens to look at non-profit requirements. I particularly appreciate Ned's comments about the military, because although both my father and brother served as Army pilots, they left when their tours were complete. Ned shares both his personal experience as a career communications officer, and his continued commitment to support the troops. I consider the shoe collection to be a bonus! Thank you Ned for bringing a positive light to Monday mornings!

PS-I am a dedicated Toyota customer, what a great sponsor for your newsletter; communicators need a dependable car!

*** Dreamliner:

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is the fast-selling new airliner ever. According to Mike Tull at Boeing, the company has 677 firm orders with 47 customers. LAN Chile just announced it is buying 47 787s. What I find remarkable is that only two of those 47 customers is a major U.S. carrier. Continental has ordered 25 and Northwest has ordered 18. In both of those cases, I suspect the carriers will need to purchase more aircraft for fleet replacement. USAirways has committed to the competition, the Airbus A350-XWB. That leaves some pretty big airlines that haven’t played their cards yet, including United, American, and Delta.

*** From Sarah, who actually wrote a check for her JOTW back in 2002 because it was worth something to her:

Ned,

Thanks for a wonderful evening – I was so impressed with all your IABC buddies & how welcoming everyone was to me –

your PMJ team is really entertaining – think broader than just communicators audiences –

Washington is center of so many trade associations & govt jobs – and the format of the three of you would work GREAT to do such a program for those audiences – it is a good business concept – you all play well as a threesome –

My suggestion would be to get an audience “plant” – someone you know who would get up there & be the 1st discussion – & push among your govt contacts & trade association folks to get to do “trial” session – & it's not a “sell-out” to take a more PC name to get the ball rolling – if PMJ won't fly, then what about the Dream Team by itself?

It can be a program format (as you did the other night) – but also build up to monthly column in some of the local business / trade association / govt press –

Do you know anyone at ASAE? if you could go to their offices & demonstrate what you do, perhaps you could talk them into having monthly advice column (on their website? in their magazines?), then it'll be easier transition to their local / regional / national meetings.

I should have gone to the mike to talk about how great the JOTW community is & how unique it is among all the job search venues –

I was so entertained, I just got so much into listening to others –

Anyway, thanks for making me feel like a visiting celebrity – 🙂

I'm glad my card helped validate for you the value of what you have created – it's even more true in 2007 than when I wrote it in 2002 –

All best,

Sarah

(We realize that for many people, “Pimp” has negative connotations. Not in Washington, DC, however.)

*** JOTW rises from, from what exactly?

Live From Washington, D.C.—the JOTW Dream Team

MIKE: Like Lord Voldemort coming back to form in a desolate cemetery in England to resume his quest for world wizardry supremacy, the JOTW Dream Team manifested itself last Thursday as the feature attraction at IABC/Washington’s monthly chapter meeting.

NED: It wasn’t really like that.

MIKE: Work with me, Ned.

NED: I mean, JOTW was never really left for dead. The meeting was just JOTW assuming a corporeal presence for a few hours. And I don’t really want to take over the world.

MIKE: (sigh)

NED: Go on.

MIKE: Thank you. The meeting drew more than 50 business communicators from as far as Philadelphia. Ned Lundquist, ABC, and a JOTW Dream Team panel consisting of Martin Welles and Mike Sorohan—

NED: That’s you.

MIKE: Yes, that’s me—provided an entertaining presentation of JOTW’s meteoric growth over the past five years and engaged in a lively analysis of participants’ particular job dilemmas as only the Dream Team can. The Dream Team looked at the cases of three volunteers who described their situations. Martin provided excellent legal suggestions.

NED: You were lucid at times. The feedback was great. And only a few people dozed off. I marked a few people who got up and left, but then they came back from the rest room so I took them off of my black list.

MIKE: It was a very participatory meeting. We weren’t the only people with ideas and suggestions.

NED: And fellow Dream Teamer Shonali Burke, ABC, did a great job of introducing us and booking us in the first place. She couldn’t stay for the backstage after-party because she had to pack for the Playboy Mansion. (Ned notes that Shonali will give us a full report on her visit with Hef in an upcoming issue of JOTW.)

MIKE: What we took away from our presentation was that most communicators have interesting job situations and that they enjoyed commiserating with each other and offering helpful advice.

NED: It was like a therapy session.

MIKE: It was a Nedworking session, with cool giveaways. You just about cleaned out your garage, didn’t you?

NED: Yes, Laura is very happy. She can park the car inside again.

MIKE: So, what’s next for the Dream Team?

NED: Well, the way Marty is turning them out, he is due for another kid in October. He’s averaged one every four months for the past year.

MIKE: I mean for the Dream Team, us, as a group?

NED: I think we get an agent.

***** Nedworking in July:

Ned:

Kudos to you, Mike and Marty, PMJ Dream, for making last night's IABC-DC meeting at Tivoli one of the most worthwhile and fun events I've had while fully, and business-casually, clothed.

It ought to be an annual event like the August networking meeting. Aha, there's the germ of an idea: “Nedworking in July” and “Networking in August” or with back to back meetings IABC could call it the “Summer Festival of Ne(d)(t)-Working” or “NedFest” or “NedStock” or “Summer of Ned” or “Ned on Net” or……………………….. oh, never mind.

Regards,

Mark Sofman

(I believe our program succeeded on multiple levels. First and foremost we delivered legitimate professional content. But we did so in an engaging way. Everyone in that room was into the discussion, a part of it. That's what people want when they go to a PD event. I think this may have been our watershed moment. Maybe watershed as in Blue Plains Sewage Treatment Plant on the Anacostia River watershed, but watershed.)

(Adds Mike Sorohan: Frankly, it reminded me of the Door's first appearance at the

Troubadour. Or Hendrix at Monterrey. In any event, I've been shedding

water since.

And what the hell are we both doing up at 6:15 in the

morning?)

(Ned: I slept in late. I’m listening to 96 Tears by Iggy Pop.)

(Mike: Other Side of the World by KT Tunstall. Drinking a Diet Mountain Dew. I

have clothes on.)

*** From Shonali Burke, ABC:

Ned, Mike & Marty –

Again – thanks so much for coming out in force on Thursday night; you guys were amazing. Here is a quick look at the post-event feedback survey:

1) 19 people (out of a registered 68) have responded. Overall, the scores for the event are consistently in the 4 – 5 range (on a scale of 1 – 5, 5 being the highest), with a couple of 3's here and there, but mostly 4/5.

Here are the comments, from those who left them (emphasis/bolding and comments in ital mine).

• Great event last night. Great group to be a part of.

• While the presentation was a little disorganized, its value was exceptional. Because you had to engage the right side of your brain to 'digest' what was being presented, that is exactly where people needed to be to appreciate the “art” of the topic. TRANSLATION: The “vibe” was, as noted, good and the audience had an opportunity to experience the mild panic displayed by others going thru things they also felt. Well done. Special. A win.

• I left yesterday's JOTW session feeling empowered and inspired, and decided last night that I will join IABC. I not only see it as a wonderful opportunity to consistently network with my professional peers, but also a chance to keep abreast of trends in the communications field and to learn new skills.

• Thought the program was excellent and bears repeating regularly.

• This was a very nice event. Ned did a good job of getting people involved by having them share their stories. He also involved the interns. In addition, I enjoyed the live PIMP My Job session. Plus he was able to get rid of all his swag!

• Overall, I really enjoyed the event and found it to be quite valuable. In hindsight, it may have been better to have screened the three participants (at the end of the program) in advance. They're problems seemed to be relatively minor in the scheme of things and didn't really hold my interest for the last hour of the program.

• While the space at Tivoli is nice, the food is awful. The amount of butter in the vegetarian meal would make a cardiologist cry.

• I'm now out of work after nearly 7 years of very rewarding award-winning work at Melwood, especially with the recent PGA Golf tournament and some other big events (they have run very short of funds due to federal circumstances beyond their control, but will return to solid financial ground) This meeting was very informative. I will look on the site for more opportunities to network with IABC soon and hopefully, finally get accredited.

• The PMJ Dream Team were great – make it an annual event

• You can always count on Ned for a lively evening. A lot of fun. Also I thought the food was particularly good this time. SB: I just thought this was funny, in view of the cardiologist comment above!.

• This was my first meeting, so all pretty new. I did get a couple tips that may prove to be useful.

Thanks, all, and have a great weekend,

Shonali

*** JOTW Communicators Horoscope for July 2007:

Ned and Mike we appalled at how few of the people at last Thursday’s meeting had read their JOTW Communicators Horoscope for July 2007. I mean appalled. Totally.

Thursday's IABC meeting was a great one, with just the right combination of helpfulness and good humor. But the real highlights for me were the stories of fellow communicators whose lives and careers had been helped by Ned and JOTW.

112.) Internal Communication Consultant, CRA, Berwyn, PA.

Founded in 1986, CRA (www.crainc.com) is a small, selectively-growing

communication consultancy that focuses on improving the effectiveness of

communication within organizations. With an emphasis on employee and

leadership communication, CRA counsels a diverse Fortune 500 client base

ranging from McDonald's to Goldman Sachs, and we are currently looking

to add to our team of internal communication consultants.

As a consultancy, several factors set CRA apart:

1) All consultants are groomed for success through an established

apprenticeship program.

2) Business development evolves through thoughtful cultivation of

relationships, not RFPs and cattle calls.

3) The work itself is process – not product – driven. The firm

excels at shaping communication strategies that influence behavior, not

at cranking out newsletters.

4) Client interaction frequently takes place in the boardroom.

Ours is not a firm for everyone. We have a commitment to excellence and

growth that brings with it an environment which is fast-paced,

challenging, and for the right individual, extraordinarily rewarding. It

is a significant commitment, requiring the willingness to ultimately be

accountable for a specific revenue target every year and the flexibility

to travel to client sites at least three days every week. For those

still reading, CRA is seeking a serious, passionate communication

professional who can provide credible counsel in blue-chip

organizations. This individual may have as few as 2-3 years of

experience or more than 15. Talent is the key.

We develop consultants within our apprenticeship program, in which

consultants work directly and daily with a CRA Managing Director or

Partner for a term of one to three years. During that term, the Managing

Director or Partner acts as a mentor as the consultant learns CRA's

brand, intellectual property, and approach to relationships and business

development. At the conclusion of the apprenticeship consultants manage

their own clients and engagements, and are compensated with a base

salary and a proportion of their revenues (with virtually unlimited

earning potential).

CRA is open to a wide range of backgrounds. The consultant may come

from…

… a large consulting firm background with the drive to work in a more

entrepreneurial, less layered environment;

… the employee communication practice of a public relations agency but

with the interest in moving away from product-driven kinds of

communication solutions;

… a career as an in-house corporate communication professional with

the burning desire to work from the other side of the table;

…a background in political consulting and the desire to apply these

skills and experiences in a less tumultuous but equally stimulating

environment.

The ideal candidate will possess:

* A passion for communication

* The willingness to relocate to Philadelphia

* An extraordinary work ethic

* An eagerness to build a growing business in an entrepreneurial

culture

* A preference for working in a small firm

* Unshakeable confidence tempered by the humility that learning

requires

* A love of ideas

* A burning desire to serve others

* Enthusiasm for solving unique problems, often with little

context

* And finally, the desire to build a career at a single firm, make

Partner, and be an employee for life

Working at CRA is a lifestyle, and we seek to hire employees for life.

We recruit for talent, passion, and the extent to which we believe a

candidate will reflect our values first, and experience and education

second. For those who make the commitment a growing and vibrant firm

requires, the opportunity for life-long professional and personal reward

is significant.

Our vision is to be the best in the world at what we do. If you have a

similar professional aspiration, please submit a cover letter, resume,

and salary expectations to Terri Fanelli, Partner, at

tfanelli@crainc.com.
