So fair the sky was and so soft the air.

Offshore Patrol Vessels – Multi-role, Cost-Effective Naval Solutions for 21st Century Operations

Smaller vessels are being proposed as the best way for navies to face ever-tightening budgets. There is now a huge range of options available within the small warships market. Is the best option to include as much technology and weaponry available as you can? What about the vast array of propulsion choices available? Is it best to opt for maximum capability or will refits and more economical vessels prove to be the better option?

*** Pimp My Job:

Hello –

I'm a long-time reader of Ned's Job of the Week. And I need advice.

The background: I have been a contract editor (by verbal agreement) with

a nonprofit agency for more than two years. A new executive director

came on board two months ago and wants a contract for every publication

I edit. No problem there. I worked with her at a related organization

(it didn't go well; I left) and I may be overly sensitive. Still, some

of what she wants to include alarms me. Her expertise is environmental

management.

Could you and/or your panels of experts have a look at this and let me

know what you think? I am forever indebted.

Thank you.

Damsel in Distress.

Ned to PMJ Dream Team:

PMJ Dream Team.

We have a damsel in distress.

Ned

*** Do we still HAVE a Dream Team? I thought we broke up after Zeppelin

reunion concert after someone put brown M&Ms in the candy dish in our

dressing room in violation of the contract.

Tundra Og

Well, if there wasn't a Dream Team, it would be necessary to invent one.

Ned

Can't we have a Dream Team Doo Wop at International?

S

Doo Wop as in Randy and the Rainbows/Maurice Williams and the

Zodiacs/Capris/Harvey and the Moonglows/Sheriff and the Ravels/ Jive

Five Doo Wop?

Ned

I think if I answer that I will get into trouble… let me put it this

way, which would YOU like to do?

🙂 S

Here's my response:

Disclaimer #1: I'm not a lawyer; wait, yes I am.

Disclaimer #2: Comments below are not intended as legal advice and are not intended to form an attorney client relationship.

Disclaimer #3: For amusement purposes only; keep all hands inside the ride and no throwing up.

Disclaimer #4: Grammatical errors, typos and any other mistakes/problems were intentionally included in the text as a test to see who is paying attention.

It sounds to me like they had a problem before with a renegade editor who wanted to say, “It's Ok for Dogs to use mountain trails, because they don't poop in the reservoir.”

I think the biggest problem, as Mike alluded to, is the lack of timelines. Maybe those are included in Att. A and Att. B which were not supplied, however, my biggest concern would be what happens if, at the 12th hour, someone on the approval committee vetoes your cover story? Now your deadline has passed and you have a cover to fill and 12 pages of copy. This contract does not indemnify you for lost advertising revenue (if any) because the cover story got scuttled and now the November issue becomes, the “Winter” issue.

Who pays for the contract writers? In paragraph #1 the contract says the editor selects, hires and manages the contract writers and Paragraph #10 says the neither the Foundation nor editor…is relieved of liability. Finally, the Foundation says they are going to pay $_____ per hour. So, who pays the contract writers and at what rate? Does this come out of the editor's hourly fee? Editor charges $100 and subcontracts for $50. It's just not clear and it needs to be spelled out. Furthermore, do you get paid if a story gets rejected?

In paragraph #6, I would change the word “every” to “reasonable.” If you use the word “every” then it could lead to absurd results, did you engage in mediation? Litigation? Send the “New Kids on the Block” to dance on their forehead.

Paragraph #9; a contract writer or photographer is a “third party.” Can confidential information be disclosed to a contractor? I'd change it, no disclosure unless waived by the Foundation or

editor.

Paragraph #7 is not broad enough. It should read something to the effect, “The Foundation agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Editor from any and all claims or demands, including legal fees, arising out of any duties or obligations incurred within the scope of the work.” Right now, you only have protection against libel and copyright infringement. What if the Foundation refuses to pay?

You could also include a provision that would require the Foundation to pay first, dispute later. Something like, the Foundation may not withhold pay or remuneration over if a dispute arises. Along the lines of pay, Editor shall be paid on the 1st and 15th; or monthly; or upon completion. Expenses and costs reimbursed monthly, receipts not required for items under $50. You may want to include a provision on travel time. Do you get paid at the same rate to travel? If there is an airport delay, do you get paid your hourly rate? Maybe say, plus reasonable expenses, including travel, time and office expenses.

Paragraph #12. I don't understand it. Ok, there's a fire. The fire was put out in 15 minutes, but it destroyed your hard drive with all content. Does this mean you get 15 minutes more or the time it takes to repair/recreate the work? A cause beyond your control – you are stuck in a traffic jam for an hour? Do you get to extend the deadline by an hour? Probably not?

In summary, approach this with the intent that this is your first editing project for the Foundation. Your editing skills are assisting with the drafting of a new contract.

It should be fair and balanced and protect your rights. You need to get paid, and the Foundation needs to get their publication into the hands of their constituency.

38.) Chief Marketing Officer, eHarmony, Pasadena, CA

Company Overview

eHarmony, founded in 2000 by renowned author and relationship expert Dr. Neil Clark Warren, is the largest venture-backed internet company (pre-IPO) in Southern California, and is well on its way to fulfilling its vision of being the world's leading relationship services provider. The Company's goal is to be the number one resource for all things related to healthy and long lasting relationships—from that initial first date, to a long-lasting and fulfilling marriage. The company is best known for its unique online relationship service that uses a patented Compatibility Matching System based upon scientific research that leads to the matching of well-suited couples.

Online dating and matchmaking sites are very profitable and one of the leading paid-content categories on the Web. According to Jupiter Research, estimated spending for online dating services reached $650MM in the U.S. during 2006 and that number is expected to continue to grow significantly year-over-year. As to be expected, success breeds competition, which is intense in the online relationship industry. Accordingly, customer expectations for a personalized experience, online safety and authenticity, and ultimately quality results are higher than ever. eHarmony is very well positioned to capture a significant amount of this growth. Of note, recent research presented at the American Psychological Society found that eHarmony married couples are significantly happier than couples married for a similar length of time that met through other means.

Headquartered in Pasadena California, eHarmony is privately held and has more than 14 million registered users. In December 2004, eHarmony secured significant funding from Technology Crossover Ventures and Sequoia Capital to be used for aggressive rollout and expansion plans. For more information on the company, please visit www.eHarmony.com.

The “CMO” Role

Overview

The new CMO will serve as an integral member of the executive management team, assisting in the development and implementation of the company's strategic direction as it enters into its next phase of significant growth and expansion. The top three priorities are: (1) Identify and qualify new growth opportunities for the company, on a worldwide basis; (2) Lead and develop the capabilities of the global Marketing organization; and (3) Enhance the rate of customer acquisition with improved economics/LCV.

He/she will be directly responsible for setting the brand’s position and direction, driving the overall Marketing strategy for the company's products and services, and for supporting the successful introduction and positioning of new products under the eHarmony umbrella. The “CMO” will lead all brand development and Marketing communications, with a strong focus on customer acquisition and retention, to support this rapidly growing company. Success in the role requires leadership and creativity, coupled with rigorous analytical skills and an ability to passionately and creatively express the company's differentiation through a carefully selected and managed Marketing mix.

Scope of Responsibilities

Brand Stewardship – Serve as a passionate steward, advocate and gatekeeper for eHarmony’s Brand equity. Champion an ongoing renewal and refinement of the Brand’s positioning and architecture, derived from a data-based understanding of key eHarmony and competitive brand health measures, as well as a keen understanding of an increasingly changing competitive, technological and customer environment.

Marketing Strategy & Planning – Partner with the executive management team to architect an integrated brand and Marketing strategy. Utilize market data, consumer research and insights, and competitive intelligence to identify new opportunities and needs in the market to support the expansion and customization of existing products, the introduction of new products, and customer segmentation initiatives that will drive sales and new revenue streams for the company, primarily in the U.S.

Functional Operations Improvement – Review and enhance, where necessary, all Marketing processes, measurements, information systems, etc., that are needed to enable the overall Marketing function to operate efficiently and effectively in pursuit of its objectives. Provide critical linkage to Finance and Strategic Planning groups to ensure Marketing goals align with the overall business goals of the enterprise.

Customer Acquisition & Loyalty – Through strategic segmentation and enhanced targeting, and by optimizing the Marketing mix, the “CMO” will lead Marketing’s efforts to drive revenue and EBITDA through stronger customer acquisition, and a relentless focus on improving ROI (reducing cost-per-acquisition) and maximizing LCV.

Marketing Partnership Management – Lead and collaborate with all internal and Agency resources (Advertising, Web, PR) to ensure that customer touch-points (e.g., broadcast and print advertising, web/e-mail, customer service, etc.) are supportive of, and consistent with, the eHarmony Brand, integrated effectively, executed efficiently and focused on driving tangible business results. Lead identification and execution of Partnership Marketing opportunities which help drive profitable business results and are consistent with, and supportive of, the eHarmony Brand.

Insights and Innovation Leadership – Strive to continually uncover and identify new marketplace and consumer trends, thereby enabling eHarmony to set the pace for “what must come next” from a category standpoint. This understanding should be leveraged to define new product/technology opportunities worth exploring further via strategy/business case development and measurable, projectable in-market testing.

Functional Leadership & Development – Build and shape a highly-effective, world-class Marketing organization by hiring, training, motivating and setting leadership direction for all direct reports. Define and nurture a collaborative and customer-oriented Marketing community, cross-functionally, within eHarmony.

Revenue growth and EBITDA targets

Key customer financial metrics – Cost/Acquisition, Retention, LCV

ROI across all Marketing initiatives

360-degree internal feedback

Reporting Relationship

The new “CMO” will report directly to CEO of eHarmony, Mr. Greg Waldorf, and work very closely with the President/COO, Mr. Greg Steiner. Mr. Waldorf was the founding investor in eHarmony and as CEO he has overall responsibility for leading all aspects of eHarmony's business. He has been closely involved with the company since its inception in 2000, recruiting several members of the executive management team and contributing to many areas of the company's development and growth. Greg brings extensive experience working with high growth companies as an entrepreneur, investor, and executive.

Greg holds a BA from the University of California at Los Angeles and an MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business. He has been cited on matters relating to investing and technology in the New York Times, San Jose Mercury News, and Business Week among other publications, and he has made numerous broadcast appearances on CNBC. Greg's entrepreneurial endeavors include being a co-founder of Startup, an East Palo Alto non-profit that has provided business training for nearly 500 aspiring entrepreneurs in that community since 1994. Additionally, Greg is a founding member of the Stanford Graduate School of Business Management Board.

Direct/Indirect Reports

In terms of Marketing staff managed, the new “CMO” will directly and indirectly be accountable for a team of 15, plus responsibility for managing a number of external agency partners. Today, the function is organized into four teams—Online, Offline, Life-Cycle Management, and Creative Services. Should there be a need to add resources—whether internal or external—based on growing business needs, this individual will have the authority to expand the team, as they see fit, and make any other changes to the organization that they feel are required.

Compensation Package

Very competitive base salary

50% performance bonus target

Sign-on bonus

Aggressive Stock option grant

401K (company match)

Comprehensive benefits

Full relocation (as needed)

Location & Travel

*** JOTW Alternative Selection of the Week:

55.) Kid Wrangler, Vista Verde Ranch, Steamboat Springs, CO

Kid Wranglers lead both trail rides and other activities for young people ages 6-17. Experience with both children and horses is strongly preferred. The hours are long, and the position requires high-energy people who can keep up with the kids.

The primary duty of each of our staff members involves guest relations. We are here to serve the needs of our guests and provide them with an outstanding vacation. More specifically, you will be expected to learn their names, engage them in conversation, answer their questions, assist them in any way that you can, and, in sum, be friendly and an ambassador and host for the Vista Verde Ranch.

Below are descriptions for the positions we fill each season. In addition to these specific jobs, there are many other tasks to do on a ranch – many of them unglamorous – and at some point we will require your participation in them. These duties could include cleaning and maintaining buildings and grounds, cleaning ranch vehicles, hauling trash, doing dishes, etc. We would expect you to perform each of these chores to the best of your ability. Again, if you are not willing to pitch in on these chores, we are not the place for you.
