*** Nedworking is working for all of us:

Ned,

I am hearing from recruiters all the time that the state of the economy is very bad and senior level positions just aren’t coming available like they used to…and I certainly understand this. But every time I look at JOTW I find at least one very good opportunity to apply for in the DC/Baltimore area that seems like a perfect fit for my background. Today there were two. So I don’t know how you do it, but I am thankful for your efforts. Now if I can just nail down that job! Maybe it’s time for my OPP! I will get that together and submit it right away. Best to you on your successes.

*** From Connie Eckard, ABC, IABC Fellow:

Yo, Captain!

Just drove back from Seattle and the inaugural (first-ever) IABC Pacific Plains Regional Conference. Outstanding in just about every measurable way.

You would have loved the hotel; it was just down the street from the Edgewater, which still proudly displays the plaque: Ned Lundquist Slept Here. They don't mention who you shared your Edgewater room with, but this year I shared with the beautiful Donna, my favorite retiree.

The event planners set some extremely high standards this year for the PPR conferences to come. Every speaker I heard ranked between outstanding and better; not a loser or sleeper in the entire group. I don't want to start calling names of those who made the conference a rip-roaring success because by the time I got through, there wouldn't be any room left for this week's job opportunities.

Next year, the conference will be about the same time in Minneapolis. Take it from me, you won't want to miss it. –Connie

PS: If there is a trivia quiz, I was the very, first ever PPR conference speaker. I led a Sunday afternoon workshop on accreditation for 14 folks from Vancouver, BC, to Houston, TX, and points in between. Then I kept checking back with the individuals throughout the conference. It's an important career decision and I hope I made the sale.

*** Connecting with Contract Writers:

This question was posted to the JOTW LinkedIn network.

How do I, as an independent contractor, maximize my JOTW membership?

I don't notice a lot of job listings for contract writers in JOTW. However, I enjoy the newsletter and want to maximize my membership on the list. How do I do that as a small independent? Thank you.

Ned replies:

There are a couple of answers to that question. First of all, grant writer and proposal writer positions are posted in JOTW from time to time. I very rarely get them submitted. The term “contract writer” is one I don't see often. Sounds more like the kind of writing lawyers do. So I need you to tell me more about it. When you say contract writer, do you mean “freelancer” or someone who provides as-needed services? Remember, JOTW is a cooperative network, in which everyone who derives some benefit needs to make some contribution. So if you know about such opportunities, you should share them.

As a JOTW subscriber you can post a one-time one paragraph pitch to plug your professional services. It's free. I run one, and only one, in each issue, and it runs first. There's a brief wait.

As a business person you can send a “Can't Wait” advertisement to the entire 10,000-member network for $300. That might get you some business, and would certainly introduce yourself and gain exposure.

You can also read the comments and questions in the weekly dialog and offer your professional insight. That also helps people become familiar with you and what you know about.

You can offer your services as one of the prizes that we give away for participating in the yearly JOTW survey. That amounts to a plug because we share those prize listings in several survey promos to get the number of participants up.

I’d like to share this Q & A in the newsletter to hear what others have to say.

*** Regarding LinkedIn, Plaxo and Facebook:

I’m signed up for all three. I appreciate the invitations to connect. However, I do not accept invitations from people I do not know, who have no biographical data, and do not indicate any connection (like PR, communications, served in the navy, reads JOTW, whatever). It you have a blank profile and invite me to connect, I’ll probably ignore it. I also am leery about people who show their cat instead of themselves.

I really do want to connect. Period.

*** From Jay Coleman, ABC, on last’ week’s commentary::

Pardon me, but what kind of drawer was that again?

Perhaps some day Spell Check will verify not only what we typed but what we intended to type.

On the other hand, Freud tells us that there are no accidents. At least now you have an addition to the Ned Lundquist Blooper Reel.

Cheers,

Jay

(what did I bloop?)

There's a reference to a sock drawer, but the “s” is replaced with a “c”

Here's the text. Boldface is mine…

“Another brilliant idea, and I got loads of ‘em” — Commentary by

Ned Lundquist:

I bought two pairs of shoes from the Bostonian store at Fair Oaks Mall

(after a big lunch at Todai). Did you know that their socks (on sale,

six pairs for $24) have a lifetime guarantee? If they wear out, get a

hole, lose their stretch, whatever, just bring them in and they’ll

replace them.) This got me thinking. You could by one pair, and wear

them every day, and wear them out completely, then bring them in and

replace them, so you would never need more than one pair of socks. That

would free up the cock drawer, and keep you from trying to match socks,

or not match them as is the case in my house.

(I see. Lifetime guarantee for cocks. Thanks for catching that.)

No problem. Just confirms how organized you are — it has its own drawer!

(I always keep mine in my drawers.)

Always a good rule of thumb. 🙂

*** Will somebody explain to Ned what those “low profile,” or “rubber bands,” or “rim cracker” tires are all about?

*** Power Up, Dream Team!

PMJ Dream Team,

We have been summoned to use our super powers to help a JOTW network

member – Scott Lowe – in distress.

This is Scott Lowe in Virginia Beach, VA…You remember me asking you

for advice on finding work in Brazil, among other things…

Well the situation has changed…I'm going to be out of my job (media

relations at Old Dominion University) on Nov. 9… Between now and then

I'm trying to develop a sharp, focused and effective job search strategy

that covers as much ground as possible. I already know how to search —

I've never done it with a deadline, though…I just don't want to burn

precious time spinning my tires. Any suggestions you have would be

greatly appreciated…

The Dream Team sounds good, or you can post it if you like…I just want

to know how and where to best apply my search, or if I should use a

headhunter, etc…I'm looking to stay in PR and hopefully make a little

more than i did in this job ($30k)…

My major asset: I'm willing and able to move almost anywhere in the

U.S., Canada, Europe, etc…(In fact I would like to move far away from

this area if possible, but my only decent second language skill is

tourist-portuguese)

My major drawback: I only have a year of solid, full-time hands-on PR

experience — I was a unemployed newspaper reporter for a long time,

doing part-time odd jobs and substitute teaching…I do have 5 summers

of part-time PR work from my college years — I was working for the city

of Virginia Beach at the oceanfront greeting/assisting tourists…

I've highly valued your opinion in the past, and any direction you can

give are greatly appreciated. Just ask if you need more details.

Scott Lowe

From Uma Thangaraj:

Dream Job in Six Weeks Or Less! Only $19.95. Buy now and we'll throw

in a set of Ginsu knives FREE! That's right – FREE!

What would Uma do?

Work at a coffee shop while I wait for dream job.

*** From Ed Kavanaugh:

Let's have a latte with Uma while we talk about what you need to do.

I'll start.

Network, network, network.—I think I've heard someone say that before.

Get your contact list out and make a plan for contacts- include anyone

you met in the course of your ODU job. After contacting and talking with

these folks, ask them for names of people who they think might be able

to help you. (Thus growing your network.)

The next step is writing—- but someone else is going to have to tell

you about that, Sr. Bridget Marie put the fear of conjugation in me and

I can't write worth a lick.

Pick it up here….er….who ever does the writing

From Marty Welles:

Why put your Brazil dream on hold? I would start by looking at tourism trade publications, website designers, hotels that are in Rio.

The tourist trade is in dire need of someone who can speak English and Portuguese. Better yet if you can write. I've read too many tourist brouchures and websites that

use poor English, or don't have English transalations. You could also teach English.

Remember that Brazil is the next China, well maybe the next India, or the next Russia….it's part of BRIC. Due to the proximity of the ports of Miami, New Orleans and Houston

there is a ton of trade coming from Brazil…why else does UPS now own a ship that travels back and forth from Recife to Miami carrying manufactured parts and products.

You will need to clear the work/visa hurdle and you'll get paid in Reals – but you'll be in Brazil.

Of course, Sao Paulo is the major financial capital of South America, so if you have a business background, that may be a good place to land a job in the trade journals.

So, in a sense I agree with Uma. Get some part-time work pronto. Then, focus your energy on identifying Brazillian or American companies that are engaged in trade

between US and Brazil. Then find trade journals in that sector of the market and start writing letters and making phone calls to the editors.

By the way, you should have a portfolio of clippings that you can send to prospective employers.

*** From Anne Mayberry:

With this attitude, I'd like to think he'll be snatched up real fast. Reality, however may have other ideas. So I'd sell myself as willing to work hard and for the right job even take a slight cut in pay-think of it as an investment. As for where to look, the question is really what matters. Doing the work you enjoy with a group of people you respect and enjoy will get you farther faster than dragging yourself out of bed for a job you hate, even if it pays more. So think about what you want and who can help you get thru the door and give them a call. That's called Nedworking.

*** From Tundra Og…or is that just Tundra:

Plus in Brazil you get to go by one name like they do on the soccer teams (Ronaldhino, Zico, Pele, Marta). You can call yourself Scottito (The Communicator).

Tundra Og

(What's your Brazilian name? Wax?)

2.) Senior Marketing Advisory Board

I am in the process of helping a client put together a senior marketing

advisory board. The company builds and sells electronic devises that enhance

personalized micro-displays/viewers. The company is targeting the military

markets, commercial training and simulations (medical scoping, flight

simulation, quality training) and the consumer market in the area of video

gaming, retail brands, advertising tie-ins and mobile devises (i-Pods,

PSP's, PDA's)

We are seeking experts who can serve on their advisory board and be

compensated with stock/cash. We seek people in each category of military,

commercial and consumer markets.

Can you recommend individuals that would fall into military/government

category? I would need their names, contact info and a brief thumbnail bio.

For example a perfect person for the military would be a retired senior

officer of procurement from one of the branches of the armed services or a

senior VP sales director for defense contractor.

Any ideas would be great. Thank you in advance. I realize and recognize this

is a hard one and any assistance would be appreciated.
