*** One Paragraph Pitch:

Over a year ago I was a casualty of corporate downsizing. In fact, it was the second time. It's ironic because my conditioned thinking told me that corporate jobs are secure. Because of that I didn't follow my passions, purposes or priorities. What was interesting for me as I looked daily for the next job, I was musing how much effort I was putting into something I truly did not want. I liked the freedom of unemployment. I had no stress in my life (until the severance ran out). I liked being able to do things whenever I wanted. I lived life daily, not for Friday or vacations. I no longer dreaded Monday. I spent more time with family and friends. Life was good. It only lacked income. My working buddies were not all that happy.

I've made a bold move to say no to corporate jobs. It was really scary. I joined a great team of like-minded, fed up ex-execs and am working for myself. I invite anyone who resonates with my experience to check us out. Freedom and happiness are choices. So is misery.

Thanks!

*** Copy this:

I continue to be both amazed and chagrined that it is necessary to include a “do not plagiarize” clause in JOTW. When I was studying for my master's degree, I chafed at hearing the professors waste a quarter-hour each semester on plagiarism, but then had an eye-opening experience.

A classmate working with me for a group project gave me her research for our paper. Because I thought a few references had too little information, I did some online research and discovered that she had copied very nearly an entire website and submitted it as her own work. I contacted the classmate, who didn't see the problem. After fuming for a day or two, I contacted the professor of this distance learning class at UMUC, explained the situation and told him that while I'm not by nature a tattler, I refused to knowingly submit plagiarized work. I then rewrote the paper with proper attributions and submitted the work on behalf of the group. (I did not share my concerns with the others in the group.)

The professor handled it wonderfully – he contacted our group by email and requested copies of our original submissions so he could better judge whether all parties were equal contributors. The plagiarizer called me in a panic – “You rewrote 'my work!' What do I do?” I told her to be honest and turn in her original submission, because all of our work had to be edited to come to the final product…but if she didn't have a copy, I would be happy to supply the professor with one. I don't know what happened after that, as the professor maintained a professional silence to the class. I was relieved to get an “A” in the class.

How sad that a few posers keep the rest of us constantly alert for infringements. Thanks for letting me vent, Ned. Take care-cj

*** Great news from Dee Ellison:

Ned, great news. I start a new job with the Office of the Inspector

General, Department of Health and Human Services, on June 23. I'll be

working as a public affairs specialist on fraud and waste in the

health area. I've got an extensive background in health, and a

background in law enforcement from my contract work with the Postal

Inspection Service, which I really enjoyed. So it's perfect. I was in

the government for many years, so it's great to be able to work in

the government again, with its important work — and great benefits!

While I didn't learn of this opportunity through JOTW, it's been a

mainstay of my job search. I very much appreciate the great service

you provide. I'll still be reading JOTW and sending in openings I

learn about. Take care. Dee

*** KISSS:

I'm fifty, flighty, fun and can bake a mean pie.

I love news, food, making PR work for “the good guys,” kissing babies, talking to strangers, adventure and travel anywhere.

I'm ready to move away from the bucolic, and mostly safe, environs where I've raised my family and a little hell.

I am restless and looking for someone who is a GREAT COMMUNICATOR, loves a challenge and has a 22″ well-worn suitcase,

little other baggage would be a plus! I am completely mobile and ready to relocate.

I'm game for a little adventure. Come on, guys! No guts, no glory!

My contact info is angdidonato@gmail.com.

Thanks, Ned. This is fun already!

Ciao,

Angie

(Who is the celebrity you most closely resemble?)

Oh Ned…tough question!

I'm not the celebrity type. Let's say…ummmm….a cross between Meg Ryan and comedienne Kathy Griffin.

And you???

Cheers! Angie

(I don't think you look like me at all.)

No, crazy man…what celebrity do YOU resemble…or are you your own celebrity??!!

I'm guessing you're pretty darned famous in circles where I'm not traveling!

Happy and safe travels to you where ever you go. And all the best!

Cheers!

Angie

(I am not putting in a KISSS. So I don't have to say who I resemble. My picture in online. Who do you think I resemble? I have no idea.)

A cross between Prince Andrew and Omar Sharif. Looks and style!

(Well, never thought of it that way.)

Isn't it amazing how we “miss ourselves” while others can see us for who we are?!

(That is profound.)

*** To pay or not to pay:

Hi –

I just recently received this notice from PRCrossing (below). I'm skeptical after paying subscriptions to several sites that are not helpful in my PR job search (including The Ladders, and several others who seem to have a lot of run of the mill marketing related PR jobs at lower levels posted a lot, but none in my real field of speciality – international relief and development). Do you have any advice with regard to whether or not PRCrossing or any other pay per use sites are worth the expense? You seem to have a very comprehensive list yourself, for free.

I find many of the subscription services to be opportunistic.

My resume is attached in case it helps you in my question about what sites may be of more use to me that are oriented toward international relief and development communications leadership jobs.

Thank you, Carol Miller

carolmiller100@gmail.com

(I can't tell you that those various paid services don't work. Just about anything will work for somebody.

But as a rule, I don't think the candidate needs to pay. Listing a job is usually a business expense borne by the employer. I have resisted any thoughts I've had of paying anyone for this service.

You are correct. JOTW is free. Networking is the nest way to find jobs. There may be an expense in going to meetings or paying for a lunch or two. But the paybacks can be very fruitful, even in positive and unanticipated ways not considered.

If you feel the need to pay, send me a check.)

*** From TW:

Well, I did receive the one that you sent on today (Wed.), so do you only send out one newsletter each week…or are there two? I didn't see many “communications” jobs on the one for today.

thanks ned.

(The one today is DEFCON 1. If you read it, you would see that it carries defense jobs. the other newsletter, JOTW, comes out on Mondays. It has communication jobs.)

*** Where’s my JOTW?

Hello. I haven't gotten my JOTW in a few weeks! Thank you.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/4774429.stm

*** Salary question:

Here is what I'd do with regard to the salary expectation question.

I'd never specify salary expectations in an application, resume or cover letter, even if the job listing requested them. If asked on the phone, say, I'll be happy to discuss them once we meet and I learn more about the position.

Go to Salary dot com and see what the going rate is for that position in that geographic area. Let's say it's $80,000.

Most of the time the prospective employee knows exactly what the going rate is and is prepared to offer it, but wants to see if you will throw out a lower number.

Then, if asked, say, something in the range of $75,000 to $95,000 (or $78K to $98K).

In other words, span the going rate, but on the high side.

If the prospective employer had been prepared to pay $80K, they might go higher to be closer to the middle of your range.

When I tried this tactic, the interviewer smiled and said, good, we are in your range. It was the only time he smiled during the entire grilling, I mean interview.

I accepted another offer before he called me back for a second interview, but it was encouraging.

People lock in to numbers. The first number out on the table is the basis around which any negotiations will center. In many ways, it is advantageous to throw out the first number.
