Tomorrow is Election Day in the Commonwealth of Virginia

“The most important political office is that of private citizen.”

– Justice Louis D. Brandeis

Honor physicians for their services,

for the Lord created them;

for their gift of healing comes from the Most High,

and they are rewarded by the king.

The skill of physicians makes them distinguished,

and in the presence of the great they are admired.

The Lord created medicines out of the earth,

and the sensible will not despise them.

Was not water made sweet with a tree

in order that its power might be known?

And he gave skill to human beings

that he might be glorified in his marvelous works.

By them the physician heals and takes away pain;

the pharmacist makes a mixture from them.

God's works will never be finished;

and from him health spreads over all the earth.

Sirach 38 1-8

(This is to honor Dr. Wilmer P. “Tommy” Heath, the lifelong Lundquist family physician, whom we buried last Friday in Wellesley, Mass.)

I was traveling this past week and weekend, so your JOTW might be a little shorter and a little later than usual. I will make up for it by traveling this week, too, so your JOTW will still be delayed and reduced.

The 2007 JOTW Survey will be launched on 15 November 2007. I am counting on your participation. Details to follow. If you wish to donate a prize, contact me at lundquist989@cs.com.

To subscribe, just end a blank e-mail to JOTW-subscribe@topica.com. Brilliant in all its simplicity. Free home delivery!

To read this list on the web, especially if your JOTW newsletter is too darn big to fit in your mailbox or inside your screen door (and I don’t want to just toss it on the sidewalk because it might rain), then go to the JOTW online at:

*** Weekly Most Wanted Poster

…And in the words of Andrea True: “More, more more!”

*** One Paragraph Pitch:

I'm a journalist and author just leaving a full-time job and building (again) a freelance portfolio. Along with magazine and other journalism, I'd like to get into speechwriting as well. I wouldn't exclude going for the right full-time job but my expectation for now is to find good freelance or part-time work. My reporting background is primarily in business and finance, but I've written on a lot of different subjects. I've also done a good amount of editing and editorial management. I've published three books, two nonfiction and a financial thriller, and just signed on with an agent to represent my new novel, so ghostwriting is an option as well. I lived in Europe — in Paris and various cities in Germany — for 20-some years, working as a journalist. I'm fluent in French and German and have done some translation work.

*** The positive and unanticipated consequences of 'Nedworking' – November 6, 2007

Please join us November 6 as Ned Lundquist, ABC, addresses the South Carolina Chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators. Ned brings a high-energy and unique perspective to issues of networking, career development and the job search.

Ned asks that everyone bring business cards and that if anyone has a job to offer, they should be prepared to stand up and share it. If anyone is looking for a work, they should come ready to make a 30-second pitch.

The meeting will be at Noon at the Summit Club in the Wilbur Smith Building, Columbia. Afterwards, Ned will be prepared to talk with anyone who is interested in learning more about IABC's Accredited Business Communicator credential.

Ned Lundquist, ABC, is a communication professional who has been publishing the free “Job of the Week” e-mail newsletter since January 2001. This newsletter and website for professional communicators has a cult following of more than 10,000 readers who start each Monday reviewing the huge list of new job openings in the communication field across the country.

*** IABC/Charlotte November Dinner Meeting

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

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 9,000 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

LOCATION:

*** I attended the commissioning of USS Sampson (DDG 102) at Boston on Nov. 3, in the midst of Hurricane Noel. Heavy winds, a pounding rain and chilly temperatures didn’t cool the enthusiasm of the crew or the guests, although I was drenched by the end of the ceremony, and my fingers couldn’t move.

*** High pass:

Hi Ned,

I just wanted to give Marilyn Deen a high five for the absolute best one-paragraph pitch I have ever read in JOTW. It was punchy, succinct and told me exactly what she did and why she is valuable. Kudos, Marilyn. Best of luck in your re-invention.

Next, I'm considering relocating to Portland (it's drop dead beautiful) and wanted to network with any freelancers and/or corp comm JOTW readers up there. Am looking to get a read on the business climate for independent contractors and the corp comm world. Email me at mary@mbwriting.com or call 310-376-3163 Office or 310-710-2755 Cell. Would love to hear from any and all Portlanders.

And finally, many thanks to you, Ned, for all your hard work and dedication to making JOTW the great resource it is!

Best,

Mary

*** Question for the network:

Have you encountered companies or exec recruiting firms that want someone who would come into a company for a specified period of time, such as two or three years, to repair its public affairs department, then get out when it is fixed? (i.e., no turf building) I spent 31 years in big company public affairs and HR, and have three years in my own business. Looking at about two years more of my company (then boys are out of college and on their own) then I want to be that “permanent temporary public affairs exec” for two or three companies before I hit the mountains.

Interested in hearing your thoughts. THX.

*** Communicating Across Cultures

This is an invitation to IABC/Washington's monthly professional development meeting with paid dinner and free parking.

Join us at IABC/Washington's November chapter meeting where we will listen to and learn from an expert in a field that is of vital importance—communicating across cultures.

As political economies at the macro level and organizations at the micro level continue to become more globalized, are we prepared for the accompanying communication challenges? At the November IABC chapter meeting, Paul Nathanson, Senior Vice President and Managing Director of Washington, DC, office of The PBN Company, will present “Communicating Across Cultures” and address the critical importance of communications in an increasingly smaller world.

Nathanson is well equipped to share his insight and expertise on this topic, having managed award-winning public affairs and communications programs for U.S. consuming industries and importers on prominent trade issues, including termination of the Section 201 steel tariffs, repeal of the Byrd Amendment, revocation of import duties on corrosion resistant steel and trade cases involving steel, shrimp, and furniture. His experience in communicating across cultures also includes time at the Washington-based Center for Democracy, where as CIS/European Program Vice President, he organized programs focused on democratic institution building in Africa, Central America, the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe.

Any chance you’d be willing to post this on Job of the Week?

SUBJECT: I saw you

You: Creative person, looking to use your creativity for a good cause. Your idea of a good time is playing around with Photoshop, InDesign to create a cool new logo, brochure or Web site. May or may not already know cutting edge technologies and strategies for online communications and advocacy, but nothing would make you happier than having the chance to learn them.

Me: Foremost organization in youth development, policy and advocacy. Spends time working closely with Congress, Governor and Mayor offices, and advocacy organizations, but am still seeking that special creative someone to complete me.

We are great at what we do and we expect the best from our employees. We are born innovators, always eager to try new ways to use technology and to communicate with our audiences. We are committed to our work, and passionate about what we do. We are family-friendly and believe that balance and flexibility lead to exceptional performance. We follow Gandhi’s guidance to “be the change we want to see in the world.” If there's something that needs changing, we don't complain about it, we change it. Nearly all of us are engaged in side causes we are passionate about. We like each other, we're nice to each other, and we have a lot of fun together. And we want to keep it that way.

We do not have hot dog eating competitions or require employees to walk on hot coals.

Seeking to turn your natural creative skills into job you can believe in? We may be a match.
