JOTW 53-2007

31 December 2007

“An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.”

~Bill Vaughan

“The Old Year has gone. Let the dead past bury its own dead. The New Year has taken possession of the clock of time. All hail the duties and possibilities of the coming twelve months!”

~Edward Payson Powell

“The proper behavior all through the holiday season is to be drunk. This drunkenness culminates on New Year's Eve, when you get so drunk you kiss the person you're married to. “

~P.J. O'Rourke

This is your free weekly JOTW newsletter, dedicated to the positive and unanticipated consequences of “nedworking.” We’ve been through year another year together.

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.

Ned Lundquist, ABC (lundquist989@cs.com).

– If you need someone to network with, JOTW has nearly 10,000

professional communicators in this cooperative network. Count 'em. Ask the network any question and you'll get a response.

– If you need a soul mate, JOTW has KISSS (Kommunicators in Search of Someone Special) because, hey, you never know. Send your personal ad to lundquist989@cs.com.

– If your job sucks, we have the “Pimp My Job” Dream Team. See http://pimpmyjob.blogdrive.com/, then forward your horror story to lundquist989@cs.com.

– If you want to promote yourself, JOTW has the One Paragraph Pitch (the six-month-plus wait list of to get your pitch posted was lost in the hard drive crash. Please resumbit. Right now there is now wait.) Send your pitch to lundquist989@cs.com.

– If you are seeking great candidates for a position you currently

have available, listing your opportunity on JOTW is free, and it works. Just email your listing to lundquist989@cs.com.

Ned: Best wishes to you and your family for a wonderful holiday season and a great new year. Nice to see those job openings listed today for Franklin and Marshall College, my alma mater. If I were 30 years younger and 2,500 miles closer…

*** The JOTW Holiday Blessing:

(re: the de-subscribing Scrooge)

I hope this individual hasn't yet signed off. I'd want them to see this. As a communicator, whatever your position, you have a responsibility to acknowledge the multicultural world around you, just like Ned has. Me and everyone else who appreciated those words are part of that world, and I refuse to be marginalized. Deal with it.

And one more thing.

The central message of this marking of the birth of an actual historical figure whose ideas changed the planet is one that even you might appreciate. Peace on Earth and Good Will to All. Even you. It's about as inclusive as any communications message you'll ever get.

John Castagna

*** From another John:

Mr. Lundquist,

I'm sorry we have such a scrooge among us! Truth be told, I never even noticed the email or comments that this whiner found so objectionable. I always just peruse the job ads, which is what interests me.

So it's a simple enough task to ignore that which you don't want, need and require and focus instead on what interests you. There's no reason to whine about material you don't like.

I'd advise this individual to get over it and be an adult. Accept and celebrate our differences and our diversity! If he doesn't like religious talk or discussion, then he can simply ignore such talk or discussion. I'm sorry this individual harbors such anger and animosity about Christmas, Christianity and religion in general.

I don't know what in his background incited such anger and animosity. But he needs to deal with those issues instead of lashing out in anger at you and others who are simply providing information to adults — information that adults sign up for voluntarily and without coercion.

Merry Christmas!

John

*** From yet another John:

Ned,

I am not usually stirred to respond to comments I read in yours or any other personal newsletter or website. What your complaining professional communicator fails to recognize is that yours is a highly personal effort that has created an “opt-in” community. If he or she (from here on out “he” for simplicity) were paying for a business service, he might have a legitimate complaint, but in this case, he is a guest in your home. You have a right to make it whatever you want it to be. He has a right to opt-out as easily as he opted in. I respect his right to believe what he wants, and if he is offended by what he reads, by all means, leave the forum. His right to decree content is directly related to what he pays for it. End of my soapbox. This comment was for you, not him. You keep on doing what you keep on doing.

Merry Christmas and may God continue to bless you throughout your travels and your contributions to this world.

John

*** From Deirdra:

Thank you for NOT being afraid to say what you believe in. It's refreshing!!!! I'm a Christan who is barely allowed to say “Merry Christmas!” Your service is awesome and greatly needed, and for those who would take themselves off of your list for what you said, then they should network elseware. Also, let that person who emailed you know that her dollar says “In God We Trust.” Maybe she should discontinue using American currency as well!!!

Keep doing EXACTLY what you're doing and thank you!

Deidra (Washington, DC)

*** From Cheryl:

Ned,

I wanted to drop a personal note to let you know that the negative response to Pat Tracy's holiday blessings is a point of view that is not shared by this longtime JOTW subscriber. I, along with most people that I have encountered in life, am open-minded enough to accept the positive teachings and messages that the various faiths offer. Pat's message was welcomed within my inbox.

I look forward to receiving my weekly fix of JOTW whether I am actively searching or just curious to see what's out there. In addition to providing a unique job search resource, JOTW adds a human touch with the stories, anecdotes and even the general fun and silliness that adults lose track of. Keep up the good work.

Continued blessings to you and yours!

Cheryl McCadney

*** From Carl Dombek:

Ned —

I think you missed an opportunity to make a few key points to the person who was so indignant about the “Judeo-Christian proselytizing” in the JOTW.

Even non-believers often accept the concept of “what goes around, comes around,” which is what seemed to me to be at the core of Pat's message. That she is also practicing her spiritual beliefs is the more admirable but one need not “subscribe to the concept of a deity” to see that you have more than others, nor must one believe in a greater being to understand the universal principal that goes by names such as karma, the Golden Rule, and others.

The writer's premise that they “do not do business with those who let

religious beliefs interfere with or cloud their business judgment” also completely misses the point. First, there was no clouding of judgment; you are the proprietor and you can do as you please. (Many regional and national businesses chains, including Chick-Fil-A and the Ukrops grocery chain, refuse to open on Sundays because of their leaders' beliefs). Second, JOTW is not a business in the classic sense(certainly not for the receivers);s/he did not pay anything to receive it, so there was no quid pro quo. Third, it may have been your own beliefs that motivated you to begin this network of sharing.

Finally, I must ask: why is the writer and others like him/her so threatened by expressions of Judeo-Christian beliefs? Expressions of belief in other deities (or the absence thereof) does not evoke anything approaching the enmity that was barely concealed beneath the surface of his/her communiqué. Could it be because, deep in their subconscious, they're afraid we're right?

I hope you have a Merry Christmas (there; I've said it) and a very happy and prosperous New Year!

Sincerely,

Carl Dombek

*** From Steve Handwerker:

Ned,

A Christmas wish, a New Year's resolution, perhaps a thread of character woven throughout history:

Below you'll find the response I received after applying for a position with Zurich, the global insurance company. I hope your readers will not enjoy reading this, but rather that it will ring disturbingly in some decisionmakers' ears.

> Date:

> From: noreply@zurichna.com

> To:

> Subject: Profile / Resume Received

>

> Thank you for your interest in Zurich. Your resume will be retained in our computerized candidate tracking system for automatic skills/experience matching against existing and future positions. When your experience, background and education match any of our positions, a Recruiter will contact you for further discussion.

> Recruiting Group

> Zurich

>

Would it be so much to ask for this holiday time and new year that companies recognize that it is disgusting to use computer software to qualify candidates, completely inhumanly inhumane, and just plain disrespectful to the people working tirelessly, humbly and hopefully to land new careers? There is no “we get 1,000 resumes each week” excuse one can give for using the software, and especially for admitting openly that one uses it.

Shame on Zurich for being so calous as to nearly admit they spend more money on software capital than on “human capital” to learn to best review candidates. It boils down to that: we are capital, expendable investments, probably more like commodities, just like a piece of software or hardware. Companies like Zurich perhaps feel, according to their accountants and actuaries, that the software will be cheaper than people and perhaps a qualified, as opposed to quantified, consideration of the people is not initially worthwhile. Do the Zurich decisionmakers remember what it's like to need a job?

The truth is, now that I've applied to Zurich, I know I would not be happy working in a place where I already have stamped on me a labor number of ones-and-zeroes. Nor would I want to be part of a company which distances itself from its potential and likely current employees who put their trust in the company, similar to the Swiss banks which “neutrally” kept Nazi monies and made it so difficult for Jews to get theirs back.

So, may this be a special note to Zurich and companies like it: make yourselves a New Year's resolution to change your approach to prospective new employees. We are people. We have feelings, mouths to feed, illnesses to care for, hopes and dreams to fulfill. We hope you remember what it was once like — if you ever experienced it at all — to actually need a job and not just want one. We hope you finally see what Zurich's founders never saw and today's leaders don't see, that the balance of life is delicate and tender — one day you are strong, a leader, a provider, and the next you are at the mercy of others whether it is by force or by age — and one day you just might find yourself on the lighter side wishing for otherwise. We are human, and hope you recognize that you are, too.

Season's greetings and wishes to all for a happy, healthy, peaceful, and successful 2008,

(Name and email withheld upon request)

P.S. It's too bad about the person who asked to unsubscribe after your holiday note. While I'm not very devout, I do appreciate the good will you and many readers put forth, I do good deeds because, as my parents taught me, that's just what we're supposed to do, and, if one good turn deserves another then as a job seeker I can use all the help I can get.

*** Ned speaks out about the Holiday Blessing:

I want to make clear my thoughts about the Holiday Blessing, JOTW, “Nedworking,” and my philosophy of sharing. First, I wish to make clear that while I have political views of my own I rarely offer any insight into my personal politics in JOTW, and I never campaign for them. I might mention where I went to church on a given Sunday, but I never insist you come with me. I offer jobs for almost any and all political views, associations and candidates, except a rare few who so grossly disgust me or who resort to illegal or violent tactics that I can not bring myself to sharing them. I don’t make a point of telling you what they are. I have jobs for Jewish, Christian and Islamic organizations in the same issue. I am not above disssing George Steinbrenner, or the New York Yankees, and I only do so as a service to humanity.

The holiday blessing has turned into a tradition. Pat Tracy and I stay in touch since the days when we were students at Surface Warfare School at Coronado, California. We were Ensigns together. Pat served on USS Richard S. Edwards when I was on USS Tawakoni, and we shared an apartment along with another Ensign in Hawaii. Pat was my best man at my wedding. I was at his retirement. He has chosen a second career of service as a seagoing missionary, and I have great respect for that calling. His blessings are by and large ecumenical.

If Pat’s blessing made you take stock or think about what each of us has done to help others, then I am pleased. If it made you uncomfortable, then I am sorry. If it caused you to condemn my use of it in JOTW, then I am sorry for you.

Mike Sorohan

*** Another JOTW Communicators Horoscope? How predictable.

http://www.nedsjotw.com/blog/_archives/2007/12/31/3439089.html

*** The Patriots finished the regular season without suffering a defeat. The final game of the regular season was not important from a post-season standpoint for either the Giants or the Patriots. I salute the N.Y. Giants for taking this game seriously. If New England was going to have the best record ever, they wanted to make the Patriots work for it. It was first-team against first-team out there, and very physical. The Pats were behind going into the fourth quarter and still managed to win. There is tremendous pressure on them now to go all the way. Can they be beat? Yes. Will they? I say no.

*** While most NFL teams are wearing the number 21 on their helmets to honor slain Redskin Sean Taylor, the Patriots are wearing the number 91 on them, in honor of their teammate, the late Marquise Hill. Hill fell off a jetski in Lake Pontchartrain, near New Orleans in May of 2007. He was found a day later.
