*** One Paragraph Pitch:

Ned – I have been a faithful reader of JOTW for many years. Now I really

need it. Funding was cut to my organization and as a result I was laid

off two weeks ago. I am a communications professional; looking for a

*** Truth in advertising:

Hi Ned – Why not label these missives for what they are: Sponsor(ed) Job

Alerts?

Anyone willing to pay for an advertisement could be reasonably deemed a

sponsor.

And it would make it easier for those who have complained to delete the

“offending” e-mails.

Personally, I think these additional alerts are useful. (Of course, as

I'm currently “between gigs” my objectivity may be skewed – grin.)

Just a thought. Keep up the good work!

*** How a communicator perceives him/herself can dramatically influence

the kind of impact he or she has for the client and on the client's

desired outcomes. In his latest edition of CommsOffensive325, JOTW

Research Guru Mike Klein looks at how a communicator can take on being

an “advocate”, as opposed to a “journalist”, “marketeer” or

“facilitator”.
