JOTW 30-2007

23 July 2007

“Speak when you are angry – and you'll make the best speech you'll ever regret.”

– Dr. Laurence J. Peter

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

It's all about the unanticipated positive consequences of “nedworking!” Say this out loud. Now say it again. Read JOTW to see how these unanticipated consequences can have an impact on others. Then start networking so something great will happen to you.

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 (, 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 It's free for them, too.

I never give out, rent, or sell my list, and neither does Topica. But I may use the power of this network in my own special way to enrich myself as a small compensation for my efforts. Like sending an email to you that somebody paid me to send. But never do I give the list away.

*** From Judy Allison:

Larvae and let larvae.

*** From J.C.:

Big fan, but…Moving this [recent Can’t Wait announcement] as a can't wait debases your excellent brand a bit, I think.

(So I should not get revenue from JOTW? If I can send one announcement like this for $200 each week, I can make $10K. You say I shouldn't?)

Not my point at all.

I think the service is great, and that you'd be crazy not to be taking advantage of the economic opportunities that come as a result. You deserve it.

It is the use of your “can't wait” header over an advertisement that caught my attention.

Consider this anlaogy: For years, I have subscribed to the Wall Street Journal for years, where I see plenty of ads and sponsored content in both online and print editions. That's all part of the deal. I'm also signed up to get breaking news from them. But it would be an unwelcome change and breach of expectations in the use experience if they started emailing me ads under a 'breaking news' heading.

Even Uncle Rupert might think twice about that. It's a misleading way to package an ad, and it would make the service less credible, and hence less valuable to me the user. Over the long run, that makes me the user less valuable to the advertiser.

Consider the comments as coming from a loyal fan. Really.

(So how do you propose I package the special listings?)

That's the $200 question, I suppose.

Might look at how others have tackled the question. Maybe 'special message from the sponsors who help make this possible' type flag?

Maybe some sponsorship message in the email or on the site?

Media Bistro might be a model. They just sold for $23M, so they must have been doing something right.

Will think more on this.

Again, take this in the spirit of constructive feedback rather than customer bitching.

(Consider it the $300 question. The rates go up on September 1. And I will consider selling JOTW for $23 million.)

*** From A. H.:

I subscribe to your JOTW and although I thought I'd saved it I can't seem to find info on your “can't wait” opportunities… cost, etc. Can you pass that on to me as I think I may have something for it? Much thx.

(I charge $200 for a one-time blast to the list. It then gets posted to the website.)

*** Product endorsements:

Will Michael Vick be able to endorse dog fighting products? Any suggestions?

*** Quote:

Don't think this is “top of the page” but…

The BBC's Graham Norton described the Spice Girls' Word Reunion Tour as the “Mutton Dressed as Lamb Tour.”

I laughed so hard, I almost fell off my couch!

*** When disaster strikes:

I was picking up Laura’s car from the service department at Springfield Toyota where it received a 65,000-mile check up when I notice something on the TV in the waiting room. Wolf Blitzer, my friend, is introducing a story about the Battle Stations 21 trainer that I visited just a few weeks ago. Here’s the story, as sent to me by John Sheppard who accompanied me through the all-night training session. Some of the people in this story are the same people we watched and talked to.

I should note that the true purpose of this facility is to provide a realistic “final exam” to test Recruits on everything they’ve learned during Boot camp, and emphasize how and why these procedures they’ve been taught are so important to save a ship or a shipmate. The real goal is to get these soon-to-be-Sailors to work and fight as a team.

CEO Roundtable Series:

Building Company Value Today for a Successful Exit Tomorrow

C-level executives spend 99% of their day as the “go to” resource reacting to today’s crisis rather than executing on initiatives that will build company value and result in huge payoffs. Executives who master the right balance focus on building reoccurring revenue streams, more efficient distribution channels, higher lifetime customer value, sustainable differentiators and brand leadership.

Exit your “day” job for a morning with peers at this exclusive CEO Roundtable where finance and operations expert, Jody Ruth will facilitate a discussion on evaluating your business’ operational strength, assessing which gaps to focus on to maximize value and the rules high-growth companies should follow to increase value from operations. And branding expert Kim Guarino will continue our discussion on how firms can achieve brand leadership, evaluate sustainable differentiators and assess positioning strategies whether the goal is expansion or exit.

Eligibility: To maintain a peer-to-peer environment, this event is limited to owners, CEOs & executive VPs in high-growth companies with $10M+ annual revenues or serial entrepreneurs with similar past performance.

Aquaflow Bionomic Corp. is working with support from Boeing and Air New Zealand to develop an aviation biofuel made of wild algae derived from bacterial pond scum.

*** Shonali at the Playboy mansion:


Had a GREAT time at the Mansion – I do have to submit a full report for JOTW, but am a tad pre-occupied with some animal welfare stuff, as everyone can imagine, with the recent news… so hopefully a full report will follow later this week, but for now – the secret of what I wore is out: a little grey number by Leona Edmiston (sorry, Marty!). It was an unbelievably surreal experience, with several kinds of party animal to be seen, including bunnies, two- and four-legged, peacocks (including a white one), monkeys and the L.A. special… the Hollywood wannabe. As to why I was there – the ASPCA will be airing a TV PSA on spay/neuter in a few months, and it was premiered at this event, a fundraiser for a local, L.A.-based animal rescue group (folks interested can visit for more info).

I'm attaching some photos in case you can use them for the site, and once I upload them to my Ofoto account (oops, I mean Kodak Gallery!) – will send the link around… but here you go for now.

Also – can you remind everyone that the IABC/Washington Annual Networking Night, which includes free Career Counseling & Resume Review sessions is on August 9? Details & sign-up info on; and those seeking to get free review/counseling sessions AND those senior communicators willing to volunteer their time should contact me separately at . A reminder to all that even if you volunteer your time – which we are VERY grateful for – we can't comp you your registration – so people still need to sign up via our site.

Thank you! And everyone please be nice to animals –

1.) Editorial Internship, Military Sealift Command, Washington, DC


I just found out yesterday that I can hire a college intern for the upcoming school year in my public affairs office at Military Sealift Command at the Washington Navy Yard. This editorial clerk will assist with media searches and clippings, preparing weekly internal publications, and writing and editing press releases and feature stories. The timeframe is for the school year, from approximately Aug. 20 through May 2008. Pay is a little over $13 per hour for 20-30 hours per week. It's a good opportunity for a communications, journalism, mass communications/media studies, political communications or public relations major.

There are only two downsides:

– I need to have resumes forwarded by July 31, as I will need to make the decision soon,

– and the hours. For the internship to be worthwhile to me, I need the student to be in the office at 7 a.m. at least three times a week to assist in preparing clips.

If any college student in the Washington, D.C., area with the above majors is interested, please forward a copy of your resume to
