another. The JOTW serves 10,010 professional communicators, and

growing every week.

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.

To change your address, do both. I can't do it for you.
