JOTW 48-2007

26 November 2007

“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.”

~George Eliot

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, news and information about the job market, as well as swapping stories about life's peculiarities.

About this newsletter: 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. So far, JOTW has shared more than 20,000 job opportunities.

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.

You might win, and really can’t lose:

Here are some of your comments:

• Ned: I love your weekly newsletter. While I said I wouldn't pay for it now, that's only b/c I'm very happily employed. Were I in an active search, I would gladly pay for the JOTW newsletter.

• On a smaller scale, I did what Ned is doing and, as such, recognize what a fantastic effort this is. The quality of his output exceeds any “professional” effort out there.

• Really need to figure out how to build jump links into the email text – it's really hard to scroll through the entire emails. I have to wade through all the “cute coversation” to find the list of jobs. Then slowly scroll the list of jobs and write down on a piece of paper the number of those that look interesting. Then scoll through the very long list of jobs to find those two or three I might want to look at. I'm not complaining; it's a free service and I'm very happy to have it. I'm just painting a picture of how I actually physically have to navigate through the page. It's clunky.

• I would like to read more about advice to students entering the pr business from seasoned professionals.

• I'm continually frustrated by the JOTW web site. I cannot find a way to search all jobs my keyword or job title. Therefore, I'm reduced to just going back through the archives of the email newsletters to find listings and titles. It's possible that I'm not using the site correctly, but as a pretty Web-savvy person, it should be easier to find this function.

• I'm not a member because of the cost, but I am an active participant and would be glad to help. I think the fact that the list of jobs is getting ever longer is a tribute to its importance in the communications community. It would be great if more people let you know when they get a job through the newsletter. It's also important to know if that's not happening. I also appreciate the give and take, especially when it focuses on communications issues.

• I've been a fan of this newsletter since a colleague forwarded it to me years ago. I appreciate its simplicity and ability to improve as the times change.

• I've told you before, Ned, but I'll say it again: JOTW rocks. You've consistently provided a top-notch newsletter that has remained true to its mission and its readers. And you have yet to jump the shark, which seems rare in this day and age of “improving” everything to death. Bravo!

• I connect as many people as I can with this newsletter and typically point someone to the JOTW website about once a week for one reason or another. It has become a wealth of information for me as a young professional and I've learned a lot by keeping up to date on the weekly newsletter. I treat it as a weekly publication that I expect and most importantly ENJOY reading!

• It would be great if you could include a job search tip w/every issue of JOTW or maybe an advice column.

• I wish JOTW wouldn't come in plain text. An HTML version would be much easier for me to use.

• Please start using anchors to make it easy to jump from a job listing to a job description. JOTW as it is poorly organized and doesn't keep the user's needs in mind.

• One of the best resources out there – I try to regularly post jobs and have referred countless colleagues to the site! I prefer the email format since I spend too much time online as it is. THANK YOU for a great service!

• Overall, I really enjoy JOTW. I do believe that as technologies to develop to push and deliver information more efficiently, that JOTW will have to adopt some of these. There are times when I think the list of jobs is too large (which really isn't a bad thing for job seekers) and that it could be organized more efficiently so that employers and potential employees are utilizing their efforts in the most efficient way possible. If I was going to charge anyone, I would charge the people listing the jobs and possibly a one-time fee to belong to receive the newsletters. Finally, I was going to develop any part of the site from a business standpoint, I would work on developing the dating site. While I'm married, I know many people in the field who are not. I think dating sites are becoming far more specialized and this would surely be welcomed by many people. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I would be more than happy to help shape JOTW's future direction. Go Red Sox!

• It would be really useful to me, though unfortunately more work for Ned, if jobs were grouped by location (or at least regionally for the US and internationally separately). If I'm rushed, I find I don't have time to wade through the entire list (and then don't see things that I could forward to friends who are actively looking for a job). I'm not interested in anything outside DC/No VA. However, if the category was just East Coast or mid-Atlantic, it would still help me not have to take time to look at oppy's in other places since I'm not interested in and not in a position to move. Thanks for your consideration.

• For the cost, the newsletter is great. I have a few complaints but to name just two: at times JOTW tends to be a bit “clique-y”/too chummy /insider-ish. I also find the priracy reports offensive. Why glorify often horrific behavior? I find this feature most unnecessary and creepy. However, I also realize, as the saying goes, “you get what you pay for.” The email format is fine. Thanks Ned. I realize that for now you are doing this for free for us and it is appreciated.

Where I come from, Thanksgiving is a day for decades-old football

rivalries. My high school, now known as Newton North High School, beat

their annual Thanksgiving rival Brookline 13-6. Newton North has a

slight edge over the history of the rivalry: 53-48-7. The current head

coach, Peter Capidilupo, was my English teacher in his first year of

teaching. He was a graduate of Newton High School, as I am. The after I graduated the “new” high school opened. Now they are ready to begin construction on a replacement.

32.) Managing Editor, Intimate Apparel Business magazine, Chatsworth, CA

Special Instructions: Please send a resume and cover letter to Ms.

Caroline Rath at JobOp@iabmag.com Write “MANAGING EDITOR” in the Subject

Line.

Job Requirements:

Established publishing company seeks a Managing Editor for an internationally circulated trade magazine for the intimate apparel industry. The position will require overseeing the design and content of

a bi-monthly publication, as well as leading the editorial department.

Responsibilities Include:

Supervising all aspects of editorial, from conception to assignment to

review, including;

brainstorming story ideas for features and sections;

finding and working with freelancers;

creating production schedules and content budgets;

enforcing deadlines;

supervising graphic designers, writers, and editorial assistants;

writing, interviewing, and researching;

reviewing and fact checking assignments;

editing incoming copy for content, style, and grammar;

pagination of content and advertising;

processing freelance payments;

Keeping up-to-date with industry news, trends, and information;

Staying in touch with key companies, advertisers, and new designers; and

Fielding coverage requests and PR pitches.

Position Details:

The Managing Editor will report directly to the Publisher and Editor-In-

Chief. He or she will communicate regularly with managers in Advertising

Sales, Marketing, and Business Intelligence as well as with outside

vendors and printing facilities. This is a full-time regular position, which may require in-person meetings within Southern California, attendance at local networking functions, and (when necessary) periodic travel to fashion industry events throughout the U.S., the U.K., and France. Benefits include paid vacation and holidays, health and dental insurance, and 401K.

IAB is a small, dog-friendly office with a relaxed working environment. We do not have a dress code or a time clock. Of course, as with any magazine, everyone on staff puts in long hours and working weekends during crunch time. That said, we respect our employees' persona lives and provide comp days and flexible schedules once the schedule slows down.

Desired Characteristics:

The successful applicant for this position will be a highly motivated individual, with an outgoing, charismatic personality. The four most important qualities for an applicant to have are:

1. A Self-Starting Nature. You are ambitious and extroverted, an initiator and confident decision maker, and a catalyst for action and innovation. You have an entrepreneurial streak and enjoy working with a small team. As part of an ad sales revenue model,

you understand the important of supporting the sales staff while

maintaining editorial integrity.

1. Meticulous Attention to Organization. You are able to

systematically handle lots of incoming information, and process it

so that nothing gets lost. You can compartmentalize diverse data,

quickly classifying and filing documents for easy access. You are

a whiz at time management and prioritization. You create email

templates and auto-replies to cut down on the time you spend

relaying the same information to different people. Basically, you

like to make the tedious stuff as easy as possible, so that you

can focus on what you really enjoy doing.

The Ability to Learn Quickly and Incorporate New Tasks. You are

excited to get to know the industry and its players and form

relationships. You can pick up, absorb, and utilize new

information about the external world (the IA business and how it

works) and the internal world (magazine production processes,

innovations in publishing, corporate behind-the-scenes) and have

an ability to see how everything fits together in the big picture.

You are the type of person who is open to change and innovation.

Strong Leadership Skills. You know how to walk that fine line

between being helpful and kind but also decisive and strong. You

encourage your staff and delegate instead of dictating. You

provide feedback, help subordinates grow, and provide an

environment where it's okay to make mistakes and learn from them.

You deliver clear assignments to freelancers and are readily

available as a kind resource, but are also able to enforce

deadlines and correct mistakes. You understand the importance of

sticking to budgets and schedules and are fully accountable for

both.

You must have experience as an editor, preferably in a managerial role.

Knowledge of the apparel industry is a huge plus. A passion for the

subject matter is essential.

Extremely strong oral and written communication skills are key. You have

an innate grasp of spelling, grammar, syntax, and style, as well as the

ability to conform to an existing style guide.

Knowledge of Outlook, Word, and Excel are mandatory. Familiarity with

Quark, Photoshop, and Acrobat are a plus. Previous working experience

with a database management system (such as SalesLogix, ACT!, or Goldmine)

is helpful, but not required.

Specific educational accomplishments are much less important than

intelligence and a winning personality. We'll take an amazing candidate

with an associate's degree over a less dynamic PhD any day of the week.

Extra points for being a self-proclaimed “word nerd.”

It all comes down to this: If everything you've read so far sounds like

something you'd write about yourself, then you've probably just found

your best job ever.

Kaulkin Ginsberg is a diversified company that provides strategic advice, research, and information services to the accounts receivable management industry. Our firm was founded in 1989 and continues to maintain a high-energy, entrepreneurial atmosphere. Our team has grown, but we still retain a culture that values family in an environment free of corporate politics. We are privately owned and have a relatively flat organization structure, so you will have regular access to and interaction with the owners and senior management of the firm. For more information about us, visit www.kaulkin.com.

We need an energetic, experienced, and creative public relations

professional to help us further distinguish our company as the leading

strategic advisor to the accounts receivable management industry. Our

Public Relations Specialist will develop and maintain relationships with members of relevant media publications, and develop campaigns to support brand awareness for ongoing company sales, marketing, recruiting and

awareness efforts.

You'll interact extensively with local and national press, as well as with industry trade publications. Your goal will be to develop a comprehensive network of press contacts and decision-makers who will rely on our company as an authority on industry trends and a resource for expert insight. A key member of the team, you'll be responsible for working with management to craft compelling messages, pitching story ideas, securing national and local print and broadcast media placement, and developing and managing the communications plan.

Essential Responsibilities include the following. Other responsibilities may be assigned.

* Develop and implement public relations strategies to support business objectives and marketing efforts for company.

* Maintain appropriate relationships with the media – locally and

nationally, including relevant industry verticals.

* Identify and execute story ideas that garner media placement for press releases, byline articles, op-ed pieces, feature stories, etc.

*** 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 9,850 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
