JOTW 32-2007

6 August 2007

www.nedsjotw.com

“The sea-shore is a sort of neutral ground, a most advantageous point from which to contemplate this world. It is even a trivial place. The waves forever rolling to the land are too far-travelled and untamable to be familiar. Creeping along the endless beach amid the sun-squall and the foam, it occurs to us that we, too, are the product of sea-slime.”

– Henry David Thoreau (On Cape Cod)

Welcome to the award-winning, free Job of the Week e-mail networking newsletter for professional communicators, coming to you this week from Harwich Center, Massachusetts. 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? Your friends can sign up by sending a blank e-mail to JOTW-subscribe@topica.com. It's free for them, too.

I never give out, rent, or sell my list, and neither does Topica.

The sale and frequency of this type of purchased announcement has seriously dimished your brand name in recent weeks. This comes after a long period where your messages were received with pleasure.

*** IABC/San Diego presents:

Using Your Brand to Engage Employees

Mark Schumann, ABC, Managing Principal, Towers Perrin, Houston

Wednesday, August 22, 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Handlery Hotel, Mission Valley, Dan Diego, CA

As communicators, we help organizations engage their strategies and we may find ourselves, more than we want to admit, reaching into a familiar bag of tricks. So what really works? Join our luncheon to hear proven best practices to engage employees through effective use of your organization's brand. After all, what's the point to communicate if we don't ultimately engage?

Specifically, you will learn:

• How organizations communicate to engage

• How to overcome typical barriers organizations face

• How to use internal and external branding to support your engagement efforts

• How to manage and measure the engagement process

Mark Schumann, ABC, is managing principal at Towers Perrin in Houston, Texas. He is a 13-time IABC Gold Quill Award winner, a member of the IABC executive board, and co-author of the book Brand from the Inside. He is a past IABC Communicator of the Year of Houston and Dallas and an accredited business communicator.

(Ned notes: I will attend this meeting. See you there.)

*** The Dream Team saves another soul::

Ned,

I just wanted to let you and the cashew gallery know that your advice about freelancing was incredibly useful. So useful, in fact, it led me to a full time job as the Director of Marketing and Communications for the Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce.

Everyone has been gazing longingly at the IABC book: “Vital Connections:

Building Relationships with Key Stakeholders.”

So where do I sign up for IABC?

Sachin

(You are the poster child for the month. You can join IABC at www.iabc.com. Then be sure to mention that you learned about IABC from Ned’s JOTW. Enough people have already joined IABC because of JOTW to create a medium-sized chapter. The very cool prize you received for being such a good sport has a value of $230. You can find more tremendous resources for communication professionals at the IABC Knowledge Centre: http://www.iabc.com/publications/library/.)

For me, Nedworking has been a tremendous success. It has led to job offers and the like, but the changes in my life since I began reading JOTW back in 2001 go even further.

Before JOTW, I was a bachelor living the wild and free life in New York. After JOTW, I'm a married family man in Silver Spring.

Before JOTW, I read Sports Illustrated. Now, I read Cooks Illustrated.

Before Nedworking, I listened to Kid Rock. After Nedworking, I listen to kiddie rock.

As you can see, JOTW is more than just a list of jobs. It can change your life.

I will suspended the present JOTW resume service. I will ask those who posted resumes there to send to me and I will post in a new folder as blog entries rather than comments.

*** Who said:

“The human race has one really effective weapon, and that is laughter.”

Mark Sofman correctly identified that quote as being from Mark Twain.

*** Did www.nedsjotw.com hit 50,000 page views for July 2007? As of 31 July the count reached 54,142.

*** As I waited for my broiled scallops at Sir Crickets in Orleans, an older woman was trying to purchase a big container of cold slaw at a reduced price. “It costs less next door,” she said.

“That’s our fish market. This is our restaurant.”

“That doesn’t make sense. It isn’t very smart.”

“I’m sorry. That’s the price we charge in the restaurant.”

“Do you go to school? I’m a school teacher.”

“Yes, I do.”

“I teach summer school.”

“Yes, I go to school, but that’s the price for the cold slaw.”

“I teach math and English.”

“I did alright in math and English.”

“I teach advanced placement classes.”

“That’s great. Now if you excuse me I have customers who are waiting.”

“I’m the chairman of the AP department.”

Meanwhile, Barbara got a Moxie. If you have never drank a Moxie, a New England specialty, you don’t know what you are missing. “Barbara, you’re brave. You got a Moxie.”

“It’s like root beer, isn’t it?”

“More like carbonated cough syrup. It’s an acquired taste.”

Barbara tries it and hates it.

“That’s awful,” she says, wiping her tongue with a napkin.

*** Good call:

I see many listings here in the JOTW newsletter where the hiring organization specifies “No Phone Calls, Please!”

Well, there is a refreshing position posted below that ends with this:

For more information, contact: Dr. Bob Willis, Chapter Executive Director

American Red Cross-Rock River Chapter, 727 N Church St. Rockford, IL 61103

Office: 815-963-8471. Fax: 815-963-0407. Yes, phone calls are most welcome.

I asked Bob why he welcomed calls.

Ned,

I want to recruit someone who has a skill set that will significantly increase our Red Cross community presence. I believe that to recruit someone requires a personal commitment to reach out and communicate and I welcome any and all calls as our Chapter tries to find the very best candidate.

Bob Willis

Dr. Bob Willis

Chapter Executive Director

(I asked, “Do you think of these calls as an annoyance or a positive sign of interest?”)

Ned,

I’m not sure what to expect as far as a response goes. Adrienne was very impressed with your network and highly recommended that I get involved. In order to find the right person I’m sure I will need to take a number of calls that go nowhere. That’s ok. We need the right person!

*** We walked up to Brooks Academy (now home to the Harwich Historical Society) for the craft fair and was able to find Ann Miller’s Summer House Natural Soaps again this year. Last summer we bought a big bag of odds and ends left over from cutting the soaps, so you get a nifty sampler of all of her different scents (www.SummerHouseSoaps.com). So this year we bought two grab bags, they last two she had left. You can stick the bag in your drawer like a sachet, and pull out a new chunk whenever the last chunk runs out. Tell Ann you heard about her soap from JOTW.

*** Lee Thomas notes Shonali’s comment to Shyam: “If only you knew how close I'd come to dancing in Bollywood… ;-)”

Okay, now THAT is a story I want to hear. ~ C'Lee

Shonali responds to Shyam and Lee:

After playing my way through 3 years of the Economics Honors program at Calcutta University (I went to St. Xavier's College, so any Xaverians will smile knowingly when you tell them I graduated with 'green bench honors'… but what the hey, I graduated, and that too, with honors!) – I spent a year doing various finance-related jobs and then decided to go in for graduate studies. The two courses that interested me most were the Master's in Social Work at TISS/Bombay – (Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Bombay/Mumbai) – which may explain why I've ended up at a non-profit! – and NSD/New Delhi (National School of Drama, New Delhi) … the latter because I've been on stage since the age of 3, and was very active in the community theater scene all through school & college.

As luck would have it, I made it through the preliminary rounds for each program, and was called for the final interview at each. Since I have not yet figured out how to be in two places at once (anyone familiar with Indian geography will know that Mumbai and New Delhi are nowhere near each other), I decided to put all my eggs in one basket and went for the NSD interview. I made it – got my degree – and loads of acting to boot. After graduating from NSD (which is an extremely intensive 3-year program… the ultimate boot camp), I joined the NSD Repertory Company and did rep for a year.

I started freelancing thereafter, and dabbling in PR/events management (I ran my own company and also had contracts with agencies) – straddling the fence but not quite sure which career to commit to. I am fairly well-connected in the Mumbai world (Ashutosh Rana & Mukesh Tiwari were classmates at NSD, Shyam Benegal is my uncle, Satyadev Dubey was my mentor and Naseer “bhai” will probably remember me if I ever meet him again) – but still wasn't quite sure whether to take the plunge or not. I did acting/DJ/workshop stints all over the country, including Mumbai (that included one with Prithvi Theatre (Shyam – you can tell 'em what that is) – and was at the point of getting ready to move to Mumbai fulltime to make a go of it… when I met my husband… and the rest is history!

And there you have it, Shyam. Love's labors lost… and a lifetime of love and JOTW network gained. 😉

*** From Chris Bannon:

Be my guest at our next Best Practices in Corporate Communications Webinar August 15 at EST

http://www.bpincc.com/e/bpcc_evolvingweb_aug15.html

*** Memorable from the start:

While flying recently from Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, I observed a young family in line ahead of me at security. There was a girl who looked to be about three years old, and I saw that she had two different sized shoes on, one much larger than the other. I mentioned it to Dad, who said, “Hey look, Maggie has two different sized shoes. Maggie has the first memory of the vacation.”

*** Tom and I saw the Harwich Mariners beat the Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox on Friday. It was a beautiful night for baseball, but even if it wasn’t so perfect, it was summer and it was baseball. It was a pretty interesting game, a scoreless pitchers’ duel going into the 5th. We saw guys getting beaned on the head, stolen bases, balks, bunts. We saw fair balls called foul and foul balls called fair. We saw a Mariner slug a home run, prompting the Y-D pitcher, all 6-feet, 8-inches of him, bean the next guy on the head and get ejected. It was family fun night at Whitehouse Field, with pony rides, face painting and photo ops in the old-time fire engine. Some of those fouls must have nailed a pony or two. I have no idea how they could be sure how many people were in attendance because they don’t sell tickets, but they announced attendance as 3,451, their biggest crowd of the season.

*** Summer of love:

Hi, Ned. Thought you’d enjoy this old fogie’s observations:

Last night I wandered the sloppy, wet, filthy grounds of Van’s Warped Tour at the Time Warner Cable Amphitheater in Cleveland and realized I was one of the oldest people there. I don’t know why that would be, as I listened to punk groups such as New Found Glory, Killswitch Engage, Paramore, All Time Low, and more. Missed Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, darn it. The age thing was interesting – most kids ignored me, unless they needed to know the time. The few other oldsters glanced at me as if they were wondering why I was there. I found myself engaging in interactive people-watching – catching the eyes of some of the passersby and smiling as if we shared a private joke. I came away muddy (but not as if it was Woodstock, mind you) with an armload of t-shirts, a VIP wristband and a bit too much sun. Not a bad way to spend a summer evening. What did you do with your Thursday evening?
