*** Ned and Tom led a bus load of Scouts to Goshen Scout Reservation this weekend for the Order of the Arrow Ordeal. The boys were supposed to meet at the Fairfax County Government center Parking lot. Only all roads from all approaches from all parts of Fairfax County were blocked off for “Celebrate Fairfax” (http://www.celebratefairfax.org/). We found small groups of Scouts at various locations, like pockets of survivors in “WaterWorld,” collected them up and eventually found our bus. We left just 97 minutes late.

Camp director was very please at the work accomplished. All of Olmstead’s tents are now set up for summer. No serious injuries at Camp Olmstead. No poisonous snakes. Heat index was 105. I was applying insect repellant to one boy who got some in his eye and it turned orange. I’ve never seen an orange eye before.

Cheers….Thanks for including the usual jobs in Canada/abroad as well; I am very interested in living abroad for working my next job…My next question is pretty basic I know, but what are we supposed to put when potential employers ask for our “salary expectations”? I've always put “An amount in-line with the local cost of living,” is there a better answer?

(Good question, from the general “salary expectation” point of view, and the desire to be marketable to an international employer. Anybody have some advice?)

31.) Manager of Employee Communications, Suncor Energy, Oil Sands division, Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada

Great senior employee communications jobs don't come up very often. But there's an excellent opportunity in Alberta right now — a career-making position with one of Canada's leading energy companies.

My former employer and current client Suncor Energy needs a manager of employee communications for its biggest business unit, its Oil Sands division in Fort McMurray with about 3,000 employees. A colleague at Suncor has asked me to help identify potential candidates.

It's a dream job in many ways:

• There's lots of growth and change – Suncor is doubling its production in the next three years, which means all kinds of growth projects with plenty of great stories to tell.

• Many employees are nearing retirement at the same time as there are hundreds of new positions to fill, so there's a big push to engage, retain and recruit, which means a big need to communicate with employees — and lots of support from management.

• Suncor has a great communications team. I know them, and I can say this from personal experience.

• There's an opportunity to lead — the position has three direct reports and there's room to innovate.

• The company is financially healthy and there's competitive pay, stock options and an annual bonus.

• Benefits are excellent, including personal time off days in addition to vacations and stat holidays.

For someone who's been working in employee communications for ten or more years who wants to take his or her career to a whole new level, this truly is a dream job.

The only sticking point: it's based in Fort McMurray, a booming city of 79,000 in Northern Alberta. That's about a four-hour drive north of Edmonton, which means it's fairly remote and has long, cold winters. The city is struggling as it copes with all the growth that's come with the booming energy economy, but it's got lots of pluses – it's a great place to raise a family with a huge new rec centre and lots of outdoor activities.

From my point of view, the remoteness only adds to the opportunity. Fort McMurray is a place with enormous potential. I have a cousin who moved there many years ago as a young lawyer and became a crown prosecutor and now he's a judge. His wife worked part time at the community college and is now a full-time professor. Neither of them would have achieved as much in their careers if they had settled in a big city. And there are many more stories like that, of folks who have come from everywhere to make great lives for themselves and their families.

But it's got to be the right person. You need to be able to move, so it might not work if you have teenage kids, ailing parents or a spouse who isn't mobile. The thing is, if your spouse has any marketable skills there would be plenty of opportunities for him or her, too.

So, if you are interested, or know anyone who is interested in this opportunity, call me at 604-694-6037 and I'll tell you more. Here's a link to the detailed position description: Download manager_oil_sands_communications.doc.

*** This is your Job of the Week e-mail newsletter, a cooperative

service of professional communicators providing mutual support to one

another. The JOTW serves 9,946 professional communicators. 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.

Feel free to share this newsletter. Feel free to forward opportunities.

Do not copy words that I wrote and use them as your own. I throw these

words in here just to see if someone is stupid enough to copy these

words entirely from my newsletter without changing them.

To subscribe, or to add a new e-mail address for your subscription, send

a blank e-mail to:

JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.

To unsubscribe: JOTW-unsubscribe@topica.com.

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

I can repeat this process again if it helps.

You are welcome to distribute this to fellow communicators. You are

welcome to look at the previous issues. To read this list on the web,
