*** One Paragraph Pitch:

Greetings. Not to worry–it's not Uncle Sam telling you you're drafted. It's an award-winning 29-year broadcast journalist who is making a major change for his family's sake. My career has always been the driver for me, and it's been a great ride for the most part. Now, health issues among my elderly parents dictate that I move to northern Florida to be there for them. My pedigree includes anchoring and reporting at two networks (which no longer exist!)–CNNfn and All News Channel. Earlier, my 10 years as a consumer/investigative reporter in St. Louis and Indianapolis resulted in three new state laws and mucho awards. Most recently I've been an anchor and news director.

I know darn well I'm a great fit for a PR or corporate communications position. Why? Because I just turned down a bona-fide offer to do PR for a major Midwestern university and was set up for my fourth-round interview for a media relations position with a Fortune 500 firm (until I withdrew due to the family health situation). From writing to developing and nurturing relationships to being an on-camera spokesperson…I will serve you well. Do you have, or know of, a position in Jacksonville, Orlando, Daytona Beach, St. Augustine, Ocala, Gainesville, or Melbourne/Space Coast where I could put my considerable skill set to use? Please contact me ASAP. I'll thank you and so will my mother and dad.

Gratefully,

(Mr.) Jody Davis

*** Shonali takes the stage:

It’s great to be at the center of the JOTW circle for a couple of weeks; I’m always a little worried I won’t fill Ned’s shoes quite as well as he does, but how many of us can? Many thanks to all of you who’ve sent in words of encouragement and job postings—keep ’em coming! And thank you, Ned, for trusting me with JOTW.

Since Ned told me I could, I’m taking this opportunity to let you know that I’m in the job market as well, having recently moved on from my position at the ASPCA (where I was the Vice President, Media & Communications). What am I looking for? A comparable senior-level communications position in an organization (for- or non-profit) that recognizes the importance of communications as a critical business function; one where I can put my multi-faceted communications experience—which includes public/media/community relations, event management, online/social media, research and measurement, internal/corporate/advocacy/crisis/multi-media/editorial communications (yup, pretty much everything that has to do with communications)—leadership and management skills to good use. With 12+ years in the field, I’ve been both agency and client-side, and am eminently adaptable to a wide range of working environments. In December 2007, PRWeek listed me as one of the top “40 Under 40” public relations professionals in the United States, which was thrilling and humbling at the same time (you should have seen the company I was in!). Where do I want to be? The Washington, D.C. metro area. So, if you need a professional communications all-star (Ned’s words, not mine), please do let me know. I’m on LinkedIn at www.linkedin.com/in/shonaliburke, and you know how to reach me: shonali.burke@gmail.com. Thank you!

*** “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again!” A conversation between Mike and Shonali:

Mike: Congratulations on leaving ASPCA to “spend more time with my JOTW family.” But no more trips to the Playboy Mansion…you were able to do something that millions of men can only hope to achieve. (But not me—I would only go there to read the menu.)

Have you seen “Mamma Mia” yet?

Shonali: Are you kidding? I dragged my husband to opening night. He was just grateful I passed on the midnight showing. I traded in my bunny ears for hot pink boots.

Mike: I’ve gotten a free pass on Mamma Mia. My wife didn’t even attempt to ask me to go with her—if anyone, she’d take my daughter. I liked the previews, though—kind of “Sound of Music” meets “Buona Sera, Mrs. Campbell.”

But it works both ways—I couldn’t get anyone to see “Wall-E” with me until my daughter came along out of pity.

Shonali: I take it you agree with Anne Thompson, then. I thought Pierce Brosnan looked great in his jumpsuit, which sort of made up for his sounding like a bullhorn whenever he tried to sing. They don't show you that in the previews.

Your daughter sounds like a trooper. A Super Trouper.

Mike: Pierce Brosnan is in this? Remington Steele? Isn’t he old enough to be Harrison Ford’s father?

Shonali: Wouldn't it be the other way around? Do I detect a tinge of green?

Mike: Of course not. I’m not at all intimidated by good-looking Irish guys who can sweep women off their feet with a mere glance.

Shonali:

*** Where is Ned… REALLY?

A contest. Good idea. You should lay down a rule, that in order to refute what JOTWers might assert Ned and Tom will have to provide pictorial evidence of what they were REALLY doing out west. Yippee, ki-yay!

*** Who’s the anonymous “non-profit job seeker”?

Recently I have seen a number of mysterious and non-specific job ads generated by “nonprofitjobseeker@gmail.com.” The positions are always confidential and very mysterious—not even the industry is specified. Does anyone know who this person is and what they are really after? It doesn't seem entirely legitimate to me. Googling the address didn't turn up anything.

Carolyn Stables

(That’s a very good question, and I know exactly what you’re talking about and have no clue… I will post as a question to JOTW.)

Whoever this is is spending big bucks—1/4 page ads in PR Week and in the Post, too. Curious, very curious.

(Anyone in the JOTW network have answers for Carolyn? Email them to me at shonali.burke@gmail.com and we’ll post them in the next issue.)

*** Looking for a Chinese P.R. firm:

Ed:

I wonder if you can help me. One of my clients is seeking a Chinese P.R. firm. Do you know of any good agencies that fit this parameter? The client is headquartered in Dallas and specializes in wireless networking technologies.

Thank you,

Kay Pinkerton

(Please send any leads for Kay to Shonali at shonali.burke@gmail.com, and I will pass them along).

*** Corporate marketing at its finest:

Many thanks to Katie Paine for forwarding this to me; I daresay you will find something to relate to:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kU9YeOQm3Y0

*** JOTW meets Facebook:

As you know from the note I sent out on Friday, JOTW now has its own Facebook group: http://www.new.facebook.com/group.php?gid=60519540332&ref=share. I was elated to see that as of COB Friday (July 25), the group already had 340 members, and at 6:55 a.m. ET today, had grown to 516 members… pretty amazing for a weekend. Many of you were energized by the creation of the group, so to everyone who’s written in/posted messages—thank you! Here are a few:

~ From Ken Frager: Thanks for setting this up and for keeping JOTW running smooth Shonali. I'm in!

~ From Pat Elliott: This is wonderful! I was just thinking about this yesterday, and you must have ESP! Thanks also for filling in for Ned again.

~ From Lisa Kindel: YAY Shonali! Bon Voyage Ned the Head!

~ From Dan Gerlach: cool thanks! is there a LinkedIn group too?

(No, but now that you’ve put it in my head, there will be.)

Even better, folks have already started posting information and using the discussion board. If you haven’t yet, what’s stopping you? It’s great to not just be able to see who our fellow-JOTWers are, but to extend Ned’s philosophy of sharing ideas and information in the social media sphere.

If you haven’t joined the Facebook group yet, do consider joining, and encouraging your friends and colleagues who work in communications to do so. It’s a great way to “work” your JOTW community—because it IS your community. And if they’re not yet part of the JOTW community, ask them to join by sending a blank email to JOTW-subscribe@topica.com – that will remain the only way to receive the newsletter. Here’s to growing our “world in communication.”
