“Spirit of place! It is for this we travel, to surprise its subtlety; and where it is a strong and dominant angel, that place, seen once, abides entire in the memory with all its own accidents, its habits, its breath, its name.”

*** One Paragraph Pitch:

Hey Ned

I enjoy getting your newsletter, checking out what's out there – but I am dumbstruck at what some employers seem to be looking for (perhaps machines or robots???). One recent listing went to 783 words, 32 responsibilities, 10 requirements. But no salary range. Sounded familiar… Should have mentioned – “and your cot is in the back room, next to the fridge…”.

Moving on – here is my one paragraph pitch:

FOUND a last-minute event sponsor after the original sponsor bailed. NEGOTIATED the first-time use of a quasi-government facility for a business event. WON a $50,000 grant based on workforce recruitment and retention. TRAINED 20 media spokespeople. PLANNED and RAN many successful, cost-effective special events, including launches and fundraisers. REVAMPED department systems, policies and procedures. INTERNATIONAL mar-comm experience. DIVERSITY training…

And more, way more, for less, way less… Interested? Contact Marilyn Deen. Delaware area preferred – but keeping all options open. (P.S. Gainfully employed and decided that 2007 was the time to reinvent myself after 6 years, 3 promotions, with the same company).

Thank you, Ned! (Giving you credit for the “more, way more, for less, way less” line).

*** From Inia Burginger, APR:

Ned,

I enjoyed your references in this week’s Monday Morning Chaser to Coeur D’Alene and Lake Pend Oreille. My brother, George DeLand, MD, has a pediatric medical office in Coeur D’Alene, his primary offices being just down the street in Sandpoint (Sandpoint Pediatrics). You may know that Sandpoint’s recent claim to fame is as Mark Furman’s new home, following the O.J. trial. Its more recent claim to fame is as home to 2006 Miss Idaho, who happens to be my brother’s step-daughter.

If jet-ski screams interrupted your work on the lovely Lake Pend Oreille, they probably were generated by one of my brother’s teen-agers zipping around their lake-side vacation cabin.

See you at the next IABC meeting.

*** This is your Job of the Week e-mail newsletter, a cooperative

service of professional communicators providing mutual support to one

another. The JOTW serves 9,804 professional communicators.. Please help contribute job opportunities so that this information can be shared with everyone in the network. The key to successful networking is living by the golden rule. Do something to

help a fellow communicator, and some day they may be in a position to

help you, or someone else like you.

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 cooperation is requested. Please send job opportunities to share

with all JOTW members to lundquist989@cs.com.

If you want to subscribe to the free Job of the Week e-mail networking

newsletter for professional communicators, send a blank e-mail to:

JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.

If you are adding an address, and want to delete one, or if you really

don't want to read the newsletter, then send an email to: JOTW-unsubscribe@topica.com

For corporate/HR recruiters: I should make you aware of the optional suggested policy for people submitting jobs on behalf of their company. The recommendation is that a hat, coffee mug or T-shirt be considered for presentation to the JOTW staff (me).

“People commonly travel the world over to see rivers and mountains, new stars, garish birds, freak fish, grotesque breeds of human; they fall into an animal stupor that gapes at existence and they think they have seen something.”

– Soren Kierkegaard (1813-1855), Danish philosopher

“I, who travel most often for my pleasure, do not direct myself so badly. If it looks ugly on the right, I take the left; if I find myself unfit to ride my horse, I stop…. Have I left something unseen behind me? I go back; it is still on my road. I trace no fixed line, either straight or crooked.”

– Michel de Montaigne (1533-1592), French essayist.
