*** One Paragraph Pitch:

I just became a member of Job of the Week and noticed I could pitch a one paragraph description about myself. So…here it goes!

I am an energetic young professional who has achieved success and is looking for that next adventure where I can put my skills to use! I triple majored in undergrad and am obtaining a masters at Georgetown in Corporate Communications and Public Relations. I have had experience at the Pentagon in two Air Force departments and most recently was the Director of Public Affairs at a national non profit on Capitol Hill. I have developed national programs, have partnered with a U.S. Secretary, countless Congressmen, and even won the non-profit a national award from the History Channel, presented in NYC. I have a list of very reputable publications where I have gotten the foundation press, including an entire episode on a cable channel that reaches millions of viewers. I am use to being the first one in the office and the last one to leave, that is, until the job is done. I would love to find a position where my skills in development, and communications could be put to work. I would also jump at the opportunity to assist a Vice President or Director with communications and marketing so that I have a mentor and partner that I could work closely with. I would be happy to pass along my resume to any interested readers. Thank you!

Very Respectfully,

Lindsey Brothers

*** Drug free work place:

I have some questions for the network about “Drug Free Workplaces” and companies that say you must agree to urinalysis drug testing. I’ve worked for several of those companies. The Navy was very consistent, and fair about testing. The civilian companies I’ve worked for that said that testing was required have never tested, nor do I know anyone who has ever been tested. Can anyone shed any light on drug testing in your companies?

*** Shades of green?

Ned,

that pic of you with Lt Murdoch? – You look a little green around the gills, despite what appears to be good color .

Was the picture “photoshopped?” 😉 I'm one to talk, I've never flown in a helicopter.

Mark

(Not at all. Both flights up to and back from the OPLATs were delightful two hour hops covering the 230 miles from Bahrain to HMAS Stuart on station.

*** I used to work at 470 Atlantic Avenue in Boston, at Rowes Wharf (think Boston Tea Party), right next to James Hook Lobster Company at the Northern Avenue Bridge. It was easy to grab a sack of lobsters and bring them home when Laura and I lived in Newton Highlands on the Green Line (terrible accident on the Green Line last week). James Hook was a salty old place in a city redefined by chrome and glass skyscrapers. There were 60,000 lbs. of lobster in inventory when the place went up. At more than 10 buck a pound, you do the math.

*** Seeing red:

Manny Ramirez hit home run 500 and 501 this weekend. He’s now 24th on the all-time home run list. He boffed a couple of catches in the outfield, but that’s Manny. And my boy Jacoby Ellsbury in on track to break the all-time Red Sox stolen bases record of 52 set by Tommy Harper back in the 70s.

*** Seeing Green:

Celtics pride is in the house. Red Auerbach is smiling, as Celts finished off a very strong Detroit Pistons to advance to the finals for the first time in 21 years against who else, the Los Angeles Lakers. Nearly half of all NBA championships have been one by one of these two clubs. You have the Rochester Royals and Syracuse Nationals in there, too.

*** Kris is incredulous:

Ned –

While this doesn't have to do with job-seeking, I wanted to commiserate

for a minute with my fellow communicators.

This weekend my husband and I went to see “Iron Man”. Overall, a

well-acted and well-done summer action picture which we thoroughly

enjoyed. However…

Early in the film, the main character, Tony Stark, takes over his

father's company after his father's death. This move is trumpeted on a

series of news magazine covers. One of them said, “Tony Stark takes the

reigns.”

I yelped audibly. My husband looked at me. So did other people nearby.

No one else yelped. I wished I were at a movie for “WordGirl” instead of

“Iron Man.” Sigh.

As my favorite journalism professor, Jim Patten, taught me: “Kings

reign. Reins steer.” And perhaps Paramount Pictures has an opening for a

copy editor…

Kris Gallagher, ABC

(It rained here this morning, too.)

*** Tom and I went to see Iron Man yesterday. He’s seen it three times, and wanted me to see it, too. Afterwards we went to dinner at Ruby Tuesday’s. There was a brief wait, our hostess said. I sized up the situation, took out a white banknote from my wallet, and said, “Can I bribe you?” She screamed, “Oh my God! Where did you get that? You have been there? Is this for me? Will you sign it for me?” It was a 1 birr bill from Ethiopia. About 9.5 birr equal a dollar.

*** Thanks:

On this Memorial Day, we may not agree with the way the world is being run,

but today, I give special thanks to you for providing me with all of these

awesome job leads. I have lost track of all the ones I applied for in just

today. Thank you so much for everything!

DC. www.nagconline.org

What happens in someone's mind when they have to evacuate a burning

do they listen to in an emergency situation? The National Association of
