JOTW 43-2007

22 October 2007

“The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”

– Saint Augustine

Welcome to the free Job of the Week e-mail networking newsletter for professional communicators. Our network currently has nearly10,000 members!

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.

Will JOTW change your life? Maybe. It’s made a difference for some people. It changed mine (and the best, I think, is yet to come). It might make a difference for you. Hopefully in a positive way. Maybe in an unanticipated way. Maybe. Perhaps.

The JOTW newsletter is a 2006 Fast Company magazine Fast50 People's Choice Award-Winner:

http://www.fastcompany.com/fast50_06/readers.html

*** How you can help the network? We are always looking for job listings. Send me a listing that I can cut and paste into the newsletter. At a minimum, I need the job title, organization and location, along with a brief description of the position (optional), and contact info and/or a link for follow-up. Some of you send me lots of jobs, and many of the submissions must be edited heavily before I can use them. Please don't have me look all this stuff up. Please. Also, I will not take submissions from anonymous sources.

Some people think that JOTW is a network of out-of-work communicators, and once you get employment you no longer need to subscribe. Untrue.

The JOTW network is packed with employed professionals who are helping those of you who are seeking jobs. Once you find one, it's your turn to help someone who is on the outside looking in. The true value of the JOTW cooperative network is that we provide a community, and this is especially valuable for those who are not working and do not have that family of coworkers to socialize with. If you have subscribed for any length of time you'll know what I mean.

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

In this thrilling issue, these 50-plus job opportunities and more:

Ned…

I was born in Racine, Wisc., and have been eating Kringle from O&H for 32 years until last year when my brother's fiancé introduced me to O&H's competing bakery in Racine… accessed by www.kringle.com… Their Kringles arrive in the mail shrink wrapped so they don't fall apart like O&H's and taste better too.

*** IABC/Charlotte November Dinner Meeting

“Learn the art of ‘Ned-working’ with ‘Job of the Week’ creator Ned Lundquist!”

DATE:

Thursday, November 8, 2007

DETAILS:

Communications professionals everywhere have benefited from Ned Lundquist's decision to leave the U.S. Navy in 2000 and find a new job. After 24 years of service, he first needed to expand his network to tap into communications openings in the private sector.

The rest is history. Lundquist's own job search led to the creation of his “Job of the Week” (JOTW), an online clearinghouse for pros in communications. Since 2001, Ned's Web site — www.nedsjotw.com — has become a community of job seekers, hiring managers and other communications pros that is 7,000 strong and growing. Ned has been written up in the Wall Street Journal, which called his site “a virtual water cooler” where visitors share camaraderie as well as Lundquist's quirky sense of humor.

A popular speaker who circles the globe sharing his networking insights, Ned Lundquist will be the featured guest at IABC's dinner meeting Nov. 8 at Maggiano's Little Italy in SouthPark. Looking to make your next career move? By all means come. If you're not looking for a job now, there's a good chance you will be at some point. Even if you've found your dream job and believe you'll never be in the job market again, come anyway for an entertaining and informative evening with Ned Lundquist.

TIME:

Registration & networking start at 5:30 am

Dinner and presentation begin at 6 pm and end at 8 pm

RSVP:

Please RSVP by noon Monday, November 5

*** Why go live?

I saw this comment on another listserv. I put the question to you. When should the newscast go “live,” and are there a lot of useless live shots on TV today?>

Having recently returned to the newsroom, I find myself often at odds with the seasoned pros over just this sort of thing. In fact, I had this discussion Sunday night. As expected, the seasoned pro told me

research said viewers like live shots and therefore we should have at least one live shot in every newscast. Somehow the cited research did not distinguish between “live because we can” from “live

when something's happening.” According to the seasoned pro, viewers believe when you're live it shows you're out covering the news and not just inside the studio.

I like to think viewers are able to and do distinguish between the live “news happening right now” from the live “look! we're not just in the studio!” approaches, and are not fooled by the latter. Does it really make a difference to the audience if you're live from the scene of the fire which happened 12 hours ago?

*** From Shonali Burke, ABC:

Hey Ned –

How was your vacation… are you still out? I love the commentary w/you & Mike, btw… :-). I spoke at the NYC Women in Communications Foundation Annual Student Career Conference yesterday – which was awesome, I got to hang out with some really cool women (I was moderating a panel on public relations), and I gave out your website as a resource – there must have been at least 100 – 120 young women attending our panel discussion, and it looked like pretty much everyone wrote it down – so do let me know if you see a lot of students, particularly from the NYC area, signing up, I'm curious to see how many of them actually follow through. I also plugged the free resume review service Robin & her troops offer, since there were clearly people who needed help tweaking their resumes somewhat. I was really impressed at the quality of the event – it was very well-organized and a great feeling to be able to give back.

I was at IPR's pre-conference measurement workshops a couple of weeks ago (we also attended a D-I-Y Dashboard User's Group at KD Paine & Partners, which was excellent) – it was SO cool to meet the likes of Shel Israel, Don Stacks, Don Wright and of course Katie, who I think is a GURU. Anyway – here is a photo if you would like to post them to the website… it was a really cool time – my first visit to New Hampshire but definitely not my last! It's Katie & I at Shankhassic Farm, her fabulous farmhouse in Durham, NH.

One of the more recent JOTWs had a question about media monitoring services, I think from Ken…? I don't know if he is still looking for responses/feedback, but if yes – some of the more cost-effective ones are CyberAlert and FNS (which, surprisingly, a lot of people don't know about outside the DC area) – they will scan online outlets and you can set up keywords, etc., and download the reports as Excel spreadsheets. What we are currently using is a combination of FNS for daily media monitoring and CyberAlert; the latter is part of the D-I-Y Dashboard package that we have from KD Paine & Partners, which we use for competitive analyses, and to which we will probably transition all of our monitoring & reporting in 2008. However, we also subscribe to Vocus for their list-building and distribution services, which are absolutely excellent, and I would highly recommend that. Vocus also offers news monitoring & analytics, but currently we don't use those. If he (I hope it's Ken and if not, apologies to whoever I'm giving a new identity to!) wants to chat some more, he can just email

Shonali

(My most recent trip was excellent. Work, not vacation (Monterey, Seattle, Spokane, Lake Pend Oreille, Idaho).)

I remember that – it was where you had one day's meal in a bunch of different cities.

(Yes, breakfast in Phoenix. Lunch in Carmel at Bahama Billy's. Cocktails and dinner in Pacific Grove at Melange.)

I love Spokane – it's gorgeous, isn't it?

(When it's not raining, it just might be.)
