“If a woman has to choose between catching a fly ball and saving an infant's life, she will choose to save the infant's life without even considering if there are men on base.”

~Dave Barry

This is the award-winning free Job of the Week e-mail networking

newsletter for professional communicators, dedicated to the positive

unanticipated consequences of networking.

This issue of JOTW is being sent to you from the JOTW field operations center in Harwich Center, Massachusetts.

You are receiving the newsletter because you want to be a member of this cooperative service (which entails some responsibilities as well as benefits). What are the responsibilities? If you benefit from this weekly compendium of market intelligence, then you should contribute to it. Simple as that. Have you submitted a job listing to share with this network lately? Get busy!

Ned is on vacation this week. No problem.

Then again at the end of July. That will be a problem. It will be necessary to have some assistance compiling and editing JOTW while Tom and I are in Wyoming. Shonali Burke, ABC, has kindly agreed to edit again this summer. She is one of my favorite people and a professional communications all-star. Shonali will be assembling the 28 July and 4 August issues.

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.

If you can read this newsletter, then you are on the JOTW list. If you did not receive your JOTW newsletter by email in your in box this morning, it is because you have a junk mail folder, spam filter, or capacity issues on your end.

*** One Paragraph Pitch:

Hi Ned,

I attended the NCC PRSA Networking event last week, and really enjoyed your talk. You reinvigorated my flailing interest in job applications (have been applying three months since graduation!). I took some of your advice and starting reaching out to those I am in contact with from previous positions, etc. Here is my problem: I'm relocating to the O.C. area of Southern California next month. I don't know anyone in the O.C. area!

This is where you might come in Ned, placing me in your One Paragraph Pitch. Thanks in advance Ned! Here it is:

I will permanently relocating to the Orange County area mid-May 2008. With about two years of professional communications experience under my belt, plus a Masters in my field, I am searching for marketing communications positions in the S. California area. While I am most interested in working for technology companies themselves or the firms that promote them, I am open-minded. In short I have experience creating Web and print collateral for government, trade associations (regulatory, PR, and marketing/membership content), and newspapers. I also have experience with product promotion, PR planning, and communication project management. While in grad school full-time, I took a sales position with Apple in order to fuel my technology passion, and learn more about the business. Please be in touch if you are an OC PRSA member as well; I'd love to start getting involved once I am there.

*** Puffer’s Pals and the IABC 2008 International Conference Unofficial Blog by Ned and Mike:

Barb: Ned (and Mike)… I have finally had a chance to read the thread of the whole IABC blog. I was too busy tracking down ribbons and lemon drop martinis to be able to participate DURING the conference. Oh yeah…I saw Mr. Godin too…I'm sad though…because I love meatballs and sadly now I just don't feel that's the cool thing to love. Anyway, thanks for your HOOT of an overview of conference. Don't judge the lack of participation by the masses as a lack of interest.

Ned: Speaking of meatballs…I had one last night, part of my meatball and Italian sauage with ziti from Georges Pizza in Harwich Center, before the Bourne-Harwich game at Whitehouse Field.. It was good. They didn't have whipped cream, however.

Mike: Meatball and Italian sausage with ziti…If I ate something like that I’d be dead within 50-60 years…

Barb: Forget the Red Sox and other hats. Do you have a Puffer's Pals hat?

Ned: I have a hat. Do you, Mike?

Mike: I don’t have a hat—I look awful in pink. But I did take one of those cozies for my mom, who is also a breast cancer survivor.

Ned: I put one on the end of my ribbons and they just loved it.

Barb: He put the koozie, AKA cup holder, at the bottom of his ribbons.

Ned: Isn't that what I just said?

Barb: I thought you said you put hat on it.

Mike: Didn’t it make you top-heavy, Ned?

Ned: Actually improved my metacentric height and thus my stability by moderating the maximum righting arm through the shift in center of gravity

Mike: I have to maintain a balance. When I have my Blackberry, cell phone and Weight Watchers Pedometer on the same side of my belt, I tend to list and veer to the left. Which is fine when I’m walking counterclockwise around the high school track but it’s hell trying to stay in line at Starbucks.

Ned: I know you are making that up. They don't sell Diet Mountain Dew at Starbucks.

Mike: I happen to like the Strawberry Crème Frappacino. And besides, my son works there. And he knows to hand it to my right hand so that I achieve equilibrium.

Barb: Ned has an earlier version hat…one was khaki with a dark rose brim…almost red…the next was dark pink (as opposed to hot pink), this year was hot pink camo (Mara has one) no logos…cross between Barbie and GI Joe my nephew said. I am getting ready to order still another “hat” for the coming year and it's VERY different but especially good for fishermen, boaters and folks whose ears are susceptible to burning (I mean sun burning…you guys!) I have teams in Florida and CT so I order gifts in the FALL. Oh, and there have been the hot pink sunglass cords …

Ned: Does it come with mosquito netting?

Barb: Mosquitos, no see-ums, geckos and howler monkeys… our net keeps em all out.

Ned: baby sharks? (That’s a private joke.)

Mike: Soccer parents?

*** Fourth of July Parade in Chatham, Mass.

A full Parade Report will be posted in the next issue of “Your Very Next Step,” the newsletter dedicated to the concept that your next adventure begins with your very next step. But you can see a couple of photos that will give you an idea of how close Ned and family were to the action by visiting Susan and Bob Burnell’s American Travel Sampler at http://www.americantravelsampler.com/calendar.html.

*** Fish as art:

We love these shirts with fish rubbings by Jenny Bovey, done in the ancient Japanese Gyotaku style, which means, well, fish rubbings in ancient Japanese.

Ned: What’s the most popular design?

Jenny: Striped bass.

Ned: I have this one.

Jenny: That’s the bluefish. It’s the second-most popular.

Ned: What’s the hardest, or the one you least enjoy doing?

Jenny: The octopus is hard, but it really looks cool.

(See the photo of the artist with son Jonah (he’s wearing the shark jaw) displaying the octopus at www.yourverynextstep.com)

Ned bought Jenny’s coffee mug, with the top ten questions Jenny gets asked by customers:

1. Do you paint a real fish and then slap a shirt on it?

2. Do they smell?

3. Who gets to catch the fish?

4. What happens to the fish afterwards?

5. Whatever possessed you to do this?

6. How many prints do you get from one fish?

7. Is this a spice shop?

8. Do you name your fish?

9. Do you eat your fish?

10. So… what's your real job?

See the designs and the technique at http://www.bluewaterfishrubbings.com/.

*** Two teams in Chicago, from J. Allison:

Why does Chicago have two baseball teams? When did that happen?

(Ned responds: Los Angeles has two, as does New York, and the Bay Area. In baseball's

earlier days, Philadelphia, Boston, and St. Louis had a team in each

league, and New York had three teams. We're just finishing up a round

of “Subway/Beltway” series of interleague play.)

From Mike Sorohan:

Chicago has two baseball teams? Could've fooled me.

Of course, I'm still waiting for my hometown of Macedonia, Ohio to get a major league baseball team, but Bud Selig seems to think that a town of 17,000 isn't enough to sustain a Major League Baseball team. As if the Milwaukee Brewers get that many for a game…

*** Doing Communications Diplomatically in Washington

The Canadian Embassy cordially invites you to the IABC

Washington Chapter's July 10 membership meeting. The event will commence

at 6 pm with a reception and visit to the impressive Photo Gallery.

Dinner, featuring your choice of fresh Canadian wild salmon or a

vegetarian plate, will be served at 7 pm. The evening's program, “Doing

Communications Diplomatically in Washington,” will be presented by

Tristan-E. Landry at 7:30 pm.

Tristan-E. Landry is the Spokesperson at the Embassy of Canada in

Washington, D.C. He joined Canada's Department of Foreign Affairs and

International Trade in May 2001 and served abroad in New York and San

Francisco. In Ottawa, he held a number of positions within the North

American Branch, including Deputy Director responsible for trade

advocacy in the U.S. and Sr. Advocacy Officer responsible for border

security. His presentation will focus on the challenges of doing media

relations and public affairs in Washington, D.C., as a diplomat, and how

the Embassy of Canada has developed some cutting edge approaches to

deliver its messages to key decision makers.

You should leave the IABC Washington event with a better understanding

of :

- What types of challenges are faced by the diplomatic corps in

delivering their message to key U.S. decision makers.

- Why facts and success stories are your number one weapon as a

diplomat.

- Why “All politics is local” is always true and how bite sized media is

critical to getting your message across.

The Embassy will provide parking, accessible from C Street. In order to

gain entrance, you must have registered in advance and present a

government-issued photo ID upon arrival. The Embassy is Metro accessible

from either the Navy/Archives or Judiciary Square stations.

*** Judy Heise reminds me that some good ideas are still waiting to be discovered:

Our Square Watermelon Cases Grow 8″ Square Watermelons!!

Made of Unbreakable Polycarbonate. 30 times stronger than glass and 12 times stronger than Acrylic. These cases will last a lifetime. They will not break, come apart under extreme watermelon growth pressure. These cases allow water and moisture drainage. Eliminates “Belly Rot”, and dramatically reduces insect attack, grasshoppers and slugs.

Square Watermelons are currently be sold in Japan for 10,000 Yen ($82.00 USD)
