“Why do writers write? Because it isn't there.”

– Thomas Berger

Welcome to the award-winning free Job of the Week e-mail networking newsletter for

professional communicators, dedicated to the positive unanticipated consequences of networking.

If you don’t know what this network is all about, don’t feel bad. Neither does Ned. http://www.hollandcomm.com/index.php?option=displaypage&Itemid=68&op=page

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. And I learn more and more each day how peculiar life is, and how unbelievably interesting are the inhabitants of this world.

To read this list on the web, go to the JOTW online at:

http://www.topica.com/lists/JOTW or www.nedsjotw.com.

To subscribe for free, send a blank e-mail to JOTW-subscribe@topica.com. To unsubscribe, read the instructions at the end of the newsletter. If you are a JOTW subscriber and changing jobs, be sure to change your address for JOTW. I can't do it for you.

Read Ned’s new newsletter, “Your Very Next Step,” at http://www.yourverynextstep.com/.

*** Ned and family are back from France. The populace of Paris was very friendly, welcoming, and warm. My kids could live on crepes and Nutella. The children of the gypsies that pestered me 20 years ago pestered me this trip. I was in a bookstore where an attractive woman was reading a copy of “Why do men love bitches,” and wondered what she was thinking. I will tell you about our hotel (Saint James et Albany) in the next issue of “Your Very Next Step” newsletter, which you can read online at www.yourverynextstep.com, or subscribe to for free by sending a blank email to yourverynextstep-subscrobe@topica.com. They have a new buffet installed at the hotel for le petite dejeuner. We watched the French equivalent of the Three Stooges get it into the hotel and down the stairs to the basement level. The basement is where you will find the pool, and spa. There is a glass vase containing a fish on the desk of the receptionist at the spa. The fish is named “Ruby.” Or, “Robby” in English. I asked her if Rooby was a boy or a girl? She shrugged, and smiled. I asked her if Rooby spoke French or English. “Neither,” she said. “Arabic.” She is from Fez in Morocco.

*** From David Murray:

Holland, what have you done with Ned?

*** Robert replies:

I'm holding him hostage until he tells me his secret.

*** From Connie Eckard, ABC, IABC Fellow:

Robert:

Great JOTW effort, but nothing less that I would expect from an accredited business communicator.

It may be because we reset our clocks on Saturday night, but I received this week's JOTW on SUNDAY. This may wreck havoc with Ned's normal sometime Monday morning delivery. But you were right to mention Ned's normality.

And it was good to see the New York Yankees finally receiving their just due under Ball cap of the Week. (However, because of that just due, Ned will probably never allow you to free-lance JOTW again.)

Thanks for your support. –Connie

*** Office Sports:

I need my “Tripple T” fix every now and then. And so do you!

*** The “Wabak” machine:

Good morning, Ned…..

Firstly….thanks a million for your JOTW communiques…..I think you are truly amazing!

I had a quick question and I hope you can rescue me…

I lost my JOTW 06-2-2008 and my JOTW 07-2008 — my laptop and my AOL have been extraordinarily temperamental recently and those two issues seem to have been gobbled up. Do you keep copies of them on file? If so, could I trouble you to send copies to me? I would appreciate it immensely, if it is at all possible for you…..I have lost a contact name and web site that was listed in either one of those two JOTWs….

Ti ringrazio immensemente……!

Tante belle cose,

Karen

(Yes I have both, and you can read issues at www.nedsjotw.com, too.)

*** From Jack Goldenberg:

Robert,

You did a great job getting this out so fast. Nice work. You did Ned

proud.

(Robert replies: Thanks, Jack. It was my pleasure.)

*** From Lisa G. Jones:

You guys are so great. Never got a job off the site, but what an

effort you put out. It's just so wonderful!

*** From Bob Schechter:

Dear Ned:

Any chance you could post this humanitarian notice. Thanks.

Under the heading of “ones children can get them into some interesting places…” My daughter, a youth director in Westport, CT, has asked me to help chaperone a group of teenagers on a humanitarian mission to Nicaragua. We will take part in Bridges to Community a non-profit cultural exchange organization that takes volunteers to developing countries to work, learn, and reflect. Through the process of living and working with local communities on construction, health and environmental projects, Bridges promotes cross-cultural learning, a deepening awareness of our global interdependence and a commitment to the common good.

Nicaragua – the second poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, has been battered by natural disasters and exploited by internal and external political and economic influences. As a result, almost 50% of the population lives in poverty. Therefore, as part of our effort we can carry 1,000 pounds of non-monetary donations.

If someone has a source for any of the following would you be so kind as to facilitate our bringing them with us when we leave in early April.

School Supplies: Puzzles, Notebooks, Pens, Crayons, Markers, World Atlases (in Spanish), Blocks/ Legos, Children’s Books (in Spanish), Coloring Books, Watercolors, Calculators, Rulers in Metric

Sewing Materials: Zippers, Metal buttons (or any buttons/clasps for purses), Material, Thread, Fabric Dye, Fabric Paint, Embroidery Thread, Sewing Equipment (Bridges would not take, responsibility for shipping), Books for sewing techniques (in Spanish), Sequence, Beads

Medical Donations: Blood Pressure Cuff, Stethoscopes Latex Gloves, Condoms, Band-Aids –Variety of sizes, Bandages, Ibuprofen, Aspirin, Vitamins- Multi-Vitamins, Syringes, Toothbrushes, Toothpaste, Dental Floss, Soap

We also need 20 duffel bags that can hold 50 pounds of supplies.

I would need items by April 7 as we leave a few days later.

Thanks,

Bob Schechter

88.) Assistant/Associate Professor, Corporate Communications, School of Communications, Elon University, Elon, NC

The School of Communications at Elon University invites applications for a tenure-track assistant or associate professor in corporate communications, effective August 2008.

We seek a colleague who loves to teach and who is excellent at it. Courses include Strategic Writing and Presentation, Corporate Campaigns and other courses in corporate communications, as well as core courses in the School or university. Faculty members typically teach two courses one semester and two or three the other, with a course (or study abroad) in a special January term. Last January, six Communications professors taught Elon study abroad courses in Europe or Africa.

A tenure-track position at Elon has two other primary roles: service to the university and scholarship or creative activity. We envision our new colleague serving as faculty adviser to our student chapter of PRSSA, which has more than 100 members and won two awards at this year’s national convention. Candidates also should have a research agenda and be intellectually active.

Candidates need to have a Ph.D. in communications (or closely related field) and significant professional experience. Teaching experience at the college level is highly desirable.

Elon is a dynamic private university of 5,000 students renowned for its small classes, engaged students, international focus, advanced technology, and one of the nation’s most beautiful campuses in the heart of North Carolina near Chapel Hill, Durham and Greensboro.

The nationally accredited School of Communications – home to almost 20 percent of Elon’s student body – has 32 full-time faculty members in journalism, corporate communications, broadcast and new media, and cinema. The School’s faculty is now in the process of designing a graduate program. An ACEJMC team last year found the School in compliance on all standards and praised the School’s collegiality, teaching, scholarship, facilities, technology, and strong contributions to the public good.

Please electronically submit a letter of application, vita, and a list of three references to Dr. Kenn Gaither, chair of the search committee, at corpcommsearch@elon.edu. To enrich education through diversity, Elon encourages applications from women and minority candidates.

Review of applications begins immediately and continues until the position is filled. For more information about the School, please visit www.elon.edu/communications.

Elon University complies with the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986. Federal law requires proper identification of identity and employability prior to final consideration for this position. Credentials will be verified.

New employees paid by direct deposit only.

Elon University is an equal employment opportunity employer.

*** Weekly Piracy Report

02.03.2008: 2315 LT: Posn 06:18.3N – 003:20.54E, Lagos light house anchorage, Nigeria.

Two robbers armed with knives attacked, injured and robbed the duty watchman onboard an anchored tanker. Other watchman, nearby, informed the bridge and tried to assist the watchman. Alarm raised and the robbers jumped overboard and escaped. Facial injuries tended to by onboard medical officer. Arrangements made for injured AB to visit the doctor the next day. Masters’ attempt to contact port control was futile.

09.03.2008: 1045 LT: 18:03.7N – 119:55.44E, Off Luzon, Philippines.

A tanker was passing a group of 15 fishing vessels. When about 1.5 nm off, three boats left the group and approached the tanker at high speed. One boat came within 10 meters of the tanker. Master took evasive manoeuvres, raised alarm, whistle sounded and crew mustered. After 15 minutes, the boats aborted the attempted attack.

08.03.2008: 0400 LT: Jetty no.106, Belawan port, Indonesia.

Unauthorised persons diverted attention of duty crew and shore watchmen, while three robbers armed with long knives boarded the vessel from offshore side of the vessel and stole ships stores. Luckily, the duty crew spotted the robbers and raised alarm. Upon seeing crew alertness the robbers jumped overboard and escaped in a small unlit craft.

05.03.2008: 0105 UTC: 22:49.5N – 070:02.5E: Kandla anchorage: India.

Upon anchoring at the outer anchorage, Kandla tower informed the master that security level II was being maintained in the outer anchorage area. Keeping this in mind strict anti piracy watch keeping procedures were maintained. The alert watch keepers spotted a robber onboard the vessel. Bridge informed, raised alarm, and crew mustered. The robber jumped overboard and was picked up by a red motor boat in which there were around six to seven more robbers. Nothing stolen.

04.03.2008:0610 LT: 03:17.2N – 124:18.4E: Indonesia.

A bulk carrier underway was approached from a distance of 3 – 4 nautical miles by about 15 – 20 speed boats at speeds of 30 – 40 knots from all directions. Some came as close as 5 meters from the vessels’ stern. Vessel raised alarm, increased speed, crew mustered, manoeuvred in a zigzag course and enforced anti piracy measures. Master broadcast a security message on VHF Ch 16 and contacted the piracy-reporting centre. Seeing the crew vigilance, the speedboats moved away and regrouped near a fishing trawler in the vicinity. Vessel continued to her port of destination.

04.03.2008: 0100 LT: Chittagong Ruby cement jetty: Bangladesh.

Three robbers armed with long knives boarded a berthed general cargo ship. They assaulted and grievously injured the shore-based security guard, by cutting his face. Alarm raised and crew mustered. Robbers jumped overboard and escaped with ship’s stores. Injured security guard later received medical treatment ashore

*** Devil’s Dictionary:

EDITOR, n.

A person who combines the judicial functions of Minos, Rhadamanthus and Aeacus, but is placable with an obolus; a severely virtuous censor, but so charitable withal that he tolerates the virtues of others and the vices of himself; who flings about him the splintering lightning and sturdy thunders of admonition till he resembles a bunch of firecrackers petulantly uttering his mind at the tail of a dog; then straightway murmurs a mild, melodious lay, soft as the cooing of a donkey intoning its prayer to the evening star. Master of mysteries and lord of law, high-pinnacled upon the throne of thought, his face suffused with the dim splendors of the Transfiguration, his legs intertwisted and his tongue a-cheek, the editor spills his will along the paper and cuts it off in lengths to suit. And at intervals from behind the veil of the temple is heard the voice of the foreman demanding three inches of wit and six lines of religious meditation, or bidding him turn off the wisdom and whack up some pathos.

O, the Lord of Law on the Throne of Thought,

A gilded impostor is he.

Of shreds and patches his robes are wrought,

His crown is brass,

Himself an ass,

And his power is fiddle-dee-dee.

Prankily, crankily prating of naught,

Silly old quilly old Monarch of Thought.

Public opinion's camp-follower he,

Thundering, blundering, plundering free.

Affected,

Ungracious,

Suspected,

Mendacious,

Respected contemporaree!
