.and more! Scroll down and see them all!

*** One Paragraph Pitch:

Featuring some quasi-savvy background, however, whether some queasy wartime jockey resultant of prior project management of a high profile ReBuilding Iraq conference, apparently which has turned into some Hiatus quagmire ( replete with assorted federal/ congressional pleas because of all the perverse Firewall etc )

So what ought my endeavors be?

I feature a substantial background in journalism/ publishing/ marketing/ PR/ promotions.

Also a prior sports background, that included assorted community affairs/ media partnering, plus PSA coordination with pro players. ( plus long time NFL social partnering )

Industry of expertise varies and is most versatile—whether social marketing, non-profit, arts, media relations, high-end luxury goods.

Though I am Washington DC based, I'd be very interested in telecommuting possibilities.

Prior experience has included project management of a high profile ReBuilding Iraq conference. Including coordination of the high profile speakers roster, and also presentations and moderating the conference from the speakers podium.

Also coordinated and directed all national media relations, plus vendor relations. Also including temp staffing and management oversight of the new office start-up logistics.

Regrettably, this project became politicized and causing a hiatus—during which there's been merely freelance endeavors.

A recent project was serving as marketing consultant for a new national sports magazine launch…though the debut was shelved.

Current project was coordinating a new website for a high-end architectural homebuilder website.

Another recent project as a freelance publicist consultant was for a new mineral make-up company, and directed the marketing / PR and branding efforts for this new-start-up.

Other endeavors have included prior gallery endeavors, and other museum / exhibit PR/ publicity efforts, also including a consulting gig for a prominent international art auction.

However, apparently headhunters want to see headlines, not creative portfolio.

Dates want to see fiscal portfolio.

Perimeters ought be savvy enough to generate some simpatico projects—instead of Hill jockey fretting about partisan angles or anything too frothy or frivolous amid this war time etcetera.

Kind consideration is most appreciated.

Thank you.

*** Take me out to the ball game:

My trip to New York aboard the Acela was fast (2:45 from Union Station) and on time. My power strip didn't function until after we pulled out of Baltimore, and even then it was an on-and-off thing. Once at Penn Station I walked to the offices of Maritime Reporter and editor Greg Trauthwein and I went to Pete's Tavern by Gramercy Park for a taste of the inspiration that prompted O. Henry to write “Gift of the Magi” in the booth by the door. I later walked up to the New York Hilton, checked in, and called Anna Marie Willey from Regina, who thought a baseball game at Yankee Stadium sounded like a heck of an idea. We took the subway uptown and followed the crowd to the House that Ruth built. We got some great seats behind home plate, and picked up a grilled Italian sausage by gate 4 before heading inside. This is the last season for this stadium, and I had never been here.

We sat next to Gina Marie, who was with her daughter, Brianna Marie. The other daughter, Lana Marie, couldn't make it.

The guy behind me had a t-shirt with a Red Sox logo, and I said to him, “I like your shirt.” He turned to me so I could see it better. It said “Certified Red Sox Hater.”

The price for the Italian sausage dinner was $88, but included a ballgame. The Yankees lost.

*** In New York:

Coming out of Eneoteca Barbone in the East Village last week we encountered two young women documenting a dog pooping on the sidewalk. The girls snapped the evidence with a cell phone, and the owner then reluctantly scraped it up with some paper lying around. I asked the girls if they were going to be putting that in their blog. They said “yes.” http://www.newyorkshitty.com/

*** American Scam:

As a recent graduate looking for a job in communications, I frequent your site and have found it very helpful. However, a post labeled with my alma mater (American University) stood out because I knew it couldn't be for the school [85.) Copy writer – marketing materials – $18/hour, American University (Tenleytown campus), Washington, DC]. A little bit of research proved my hunch is correct; there is no VP of Sales and Marketing, and such a division would certainly never hire someone to write copy and also keep security–the Public Safety office does an amazing job around campus already. Most importantly, there is no such posting on the university's HR site. It seems that the ad is meant to say that they are near American University/Tenleytown, also the name of the nearby metro station.

I just wanted to make sure the so-called “bizarre” posting isn't incorrectly affiliated with AU, and perhaps help someone who might be mislead by it.

Best,

Bettina

*** The position was submitted by Marilyn Haspell. I asked her:

(Don't you wonder just what it is they're guarding while they fold brochures and stick them in envelopes? Several people responded. They say it is a hoax.)

Dunno–anything is possible.But I'm thrilled to have started such a furor! Keep me posted of ever-breaking news!

(If I think of it I'll call AU myself).

*** The American University Responds:

Hi Ned & Marylyn,

Just now getting to read through Monday's JOTW posting, noticed the ad below in the listings and wanted to make a clarification, since through viral forwarding it has made the rounds this past week on some industry sites.

This ad was not placed by American University. The location on CraigsList is defined as American University/Tenleytown, the same label on the nearby metro stop, thus generating some of the confusion. The ad refers to a for-profit college; AU is a nonprofit institution. In addition, we do not have a Vice President of Sales and Marketing. Anyone searching for jobs at American University should visit our official employment site at www.american.edu/hr to verify job listings they come across.

Thanks,

“Here’s my theory about meetings and life; the three things you can’t fake are erections, competence and creativity. That’s why meetings become toxic they put uncreative people in a situation in which they have to be something they can never be. And the more effort they put into concealing their inabilities, the more toxic the meeting becomes. One of the most common creativity-faking tactics is when someone puts their hands in prayer position and conceals their mouth while they nod at you and say, 'Mmmmmm. Interesting.' If pressed, they’ll add, 'I’ll have to get back to you on that.' Then they don’t say anything else.”
