“No one has ever become poor by giving.”

- Anne Frank

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

JOTW is a cooperative service that relies on the contributions of its members, like you. We share job opportunities (we posted our 19,000th job listing last month), news and information about the job market, as well as swapping stories about life's peculiarities.

This network is dedicated to the positive and unanticipated consequences of “nedworking.”

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. Although for a modest consideration Ned can facilitate the transmission of your key messages to this highly-qualified target audience on your behalf.

In this thrilling issue:

Thursday, September 20

12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. EST

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: As companies struggle to keep employees engaged,

the concept of an employer brand has moved to center stage. Many times

each work day, employees experience “moments of truth,” just as

customers do when they use a product or service. These moments can

energize and motivate employees or disillusion them. Creating an

employer brand requires that we understand the principles and process

involved in the research, program development, marketing and

communications. They all intersect to create an employer's brand. In

this program, we will how these varied interests, which once were

applied only to the external customer, now are relevant to employees at all levels in all sectors.

*** From Shonali Burke, ABC:

Something I have been mulling over – and do you think it would be an interesting question for the JOTW crowd: A couple of years ago LinkedIn was the cool, online networking site – if you remember, you had to be asked to join. I was, and did, and keep my profile fairly updated (as I do everywhere). It's certainly been very useful in terms of re-connecting with some people and building my network in a virtual capacity, but I've noticed that I've started getting more and more requests from people I don't know, or whom I may have met briefly at a networking event, if they can add me to their network. This may be a function of my increased visibility through JOTW, IABC/Washington, WWPR, as well as the fact that I now work for the ASPCA. Does the same happen with you (and others) and if so, how do you feel about it/deal with it?

:-) Shonali

Shonali Burke, ABC

Vice President, Media & Communications

ASPCA

P.S. – The May 2008 JOTW thingy will be cool… I'm looking forward to it already!

(I agree. I can’t keep up with it all. I don’t want to seem anti-social, but there is a limit even to my own networking. Some of the people who ask to join my LinkedIn network are known to me, or subscribe to JOTW. Others have a profile I can relate to. Some have no relevance, and I ignore them. Others want me to join Plaxo, ProudlyWeServed, Hi5, FacePlate, MySpace, MyRagan, MyGoodness and Oprah’s Book Club.

The May event Shonali is referring to is a live version of Pimp My Job, dba “Pump Up My Job,” to be presented in Pittsburgh. Watch for more liver performances of the PMJ Dream Team.)

*** Weekly Piracy Report:

29.08.2007: 0530 LT: 02:30S – 118:30E, Makassar Straits, Indonesia.

Three white, speedboats doing 17 kts, approached a bulk carrier underway, from the port and stbd side. The D/O raised the alarm, sounded the ship's whistle and the crew mustered. Seeing the alert crew, the pirates aborted the attempt.

28.08.2007: 1030 LT: 06:06.9N – 098:30.7E, Malacca Straits.

Ten armed pirates, in a speedboat, attempted to board a container ship underway. Due to the ship’s higher speed, the pirates could not board and gave up the chase.

27.08.2007: Night Hrs: Kingston outer anchorage, Jamaica.

Robbers boarded a general cargo ship unnoticed. They broke into containers and storerooms and stole ship’s cargo and stores. They also entered the superstructure, mess-rooms and galley and stole ship's property. Police came on board for investigations when the ship berthed.

27.07.2007: Waini river: Guyana.

Five robbers armed with guns boarded a fishing boat and robbed the crew of their catch of fish and ship’s stores. They took the crew, as hostage, to another fishing boat nearby and robbed the other boat’s crew of their catch, stores and cash. The robbers kept both the fishing boats’ crew in one boat and escaped in the other fishing boat.

23.08.2007: 2210 LT: Port Said / inner harbour, Egypt.

Robbers from five boats boarded a general cargo ship during mooring manoeuvres, despite attempts of the master and crew to prevent them. The robbers tried to force open and gain access into storerooms, cargo holds and the superstructure but failed as the doors were padlocked and secured. The three pilots on board, at the time, asked the master not to interrupt the mooring manoeuvres for safety reasons. Once the ship was safely moored, the crew started chasing the robbers out. The watchmen and police on board started to help only when the master told them they would not get any cigarettes unless they made sure that there were no robbers onboard. The pilots later apologised for the “business people”.

21.08.2007: 2200 LT: 14:35N-120:57E, Manila anchorage, Philippines.

Two robbers armed with long knives boarded a container ship via the anchor chain. The hawse pipe cover, which was installed and secured by three wing nuts, was removed, as there was a gap large enough for the intruder’s hand to reach through and remove the nuts. The intruders very quickly lifted the forward 6-person liferaft, threw it over the side, jumped into the water, and escaped using a small motorboat. No injury to crewmembers.
