Ned:

I found JOTW about 2 months ago and *love it.* I've added a direct link to your site from my blog home page as well as on my site's page listing marketing job resources. Thank you for putting JOTW. It is one of the best marketing job resources I've recently come across to date.

I see that folks can share tid bits with your audience so if you can share with the list … for any members in the Wash DC/NoVa area … a handful of social media marketing colleagues and I, including the extremely socially plugged Shashi Bellamkonda of Network Solutions, are putting together a Social Media marketing workshop on November 5 in Dulles, VA. The first hour is just fun networking; the next 2 hours are for the workshop/seminar and Q&A. This event was put together because despite the popularity of social media networking, there are still businesses and marketers who continue to sit on the social media sidelines for various reasons. We hope to enlighten folks on the benefits of becoming socially active online and what factors they should consider when using these channels for marketing purposes.

All the info for this event can be found here:

*** Tom and I spent the weekend at Fort Washington , maintained by the National Park Service. The fort once guarded the approaches to Washington up the Potomac. We were there with the Old Dominion District Fall Camporee, where Tom and I helped run the rifle range. Okay, it was a 15-foot BB rifle range, but we ran it like a real firearms range. We had deer come within a few feet of the targets and had to cease fire. (See the photo taken after the deer had moved off and we let the boys retrieve their targets at www.nedsjotw.com.) The evenings were cool, and the jets flying low overhead as they turned up river to Reagan National Airport were noisy, but they didn’t fly all night.

Tips & Sites For Finding Freelance Blogging Work (Part Two)

*** Advice desired:

Dear Ned,

I have been checking your website for about a year now. I find it very useful and excellent source of information.

Currently, I am located in Japan where I am originally from. After coming back from the states at the end of last year, I started to work here. However, I would like to come back to the states to work winthin the next two years or hopefully sooner.

I have always wanted to work in the states, but I get caught up in work visa problems and have not been able to move beyond that.

I do not want to take your time but I wanted to get your advice. That's why I decided to email you after much thinking. I graduated from Temple University with a degree in public relations from communication school in 2006. I have some great internship experiences and a portfolio to present. Of course, I am bilingual (Japanese and English). I can send you my resume by email if you like, just so you can see where I am coming from.

Again, I am not emailing you to take your time but I wanted to get your advice on what I should do to market myself so I can find a job in the states.

Thank you for your time in advance. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Sincerely,

Sahori Fukita

(We have turned the Pimp My Job Dream Team on to this. We have input from Marty Welles. But we would be delighted to get your advice, too. Send your response to Sahori via Ned at lundquist989@cs.com.)

When Sahori says “work visa problems” I'm not sure what that means. Did Sahori overstay a student visa while studying at Temple? Is it because of a

criminal background? Or, is it because of the inability or difficulty of obtaining an HB-1 Visa.

Assuming there is no bar to entry, but merely the inconvenience of entry – Sahori should identify businesses who can use the unique skill set that can't be duplicated by

a U.S. Citizen. For example, Sahori possesses fluency in English and Japanese. I'd look to Berlitz, Lado or some other type of language training school. In addition,

I'd look for companies in Detroit that do business with Japan. There has been a massive brain drain with no new prospects willing to relocate to Detroit, so that means

less competition from U.S. Citizens and a greater likelihood of success. Also, look to locations where there is a Japanese manufacturing plant in the U.S. Toyota, Honda and

probably a couple other corporations could use an employee fluent in Japanese/English. Plus they are located in rural areas where there is less competition from U.S. Citizens.

The tough part will be to find a business willing to sponsor a visa. Times are tough in the U.S. and the economy is going to get worse before it gets better. One more option

is to enroll in graduate school in the U.S. and then work to find a job while here.

Marty

Sahori responds:

Dear Ned,

Thank you for your email. The following is my reply to Marty's response.

First of all, I appreciate Marty's response. Second of all, in replying to his question, yes, it is difficult to obtain H-1B visa lately since US immigration department has been decreasing the number of issuing H-1B visa or so I heard.

Also, economy in America is going through tough time as Marty mentioned.

I understand that it will probably be even harder for me to look for a job or company that can sponsor my H-1B visa, but I am going to try harder now that I have some information that I can work with.

Once again, I appreciate Marty's response.

They are proud to have strong track records in creating awareness about products in emerging and changing markets; exceptional relationships with business, vertical and technology media; excellent partner and analyst communications; and a history of producing consistent and measurable results.

The Seattle office is currently seeking two new members for its technology practice:

44.) Senior Account Executive/Account Supervisor, Wireless Practice, Weber Shandwick, Seattle, WA

As a Senior Account Executive/Account Supervisor supporting the wireless technology practice, you will develop and oversee core public relations programs and activities for leading clients in the wireless space.

We’re looking for candidates with a minimum of 4-5 years technology public relations (and agency) experience who are passionate about wireless technology. You will want to use your experience and abilities to achieve winning results for our clients and tout a track record of success with consumer technology media.

45.) Account Supervisor/Group Manager, Digital Media, Weber Shandwick, Seattle, WA

We’re also blazing trails in exciting areas such as IPTV and DRM. The account team is a mix of movie-lovers, gamers, tech geeks and even former political staffers – all with an interest in the revolution that’s changing how consumers watch and enjoy music, movies, TV, games and more. A minimum of five years of PR experience, strong media relations and client management skills and team management expertise are a must.

65.) Chief Communications Officer, TAP-IN, East Brunswick, NJ

TAP-IN is seeking a Chief Communications Officer.

TAP-IN was conceived by The American Health Initiative in 2004 as a

practical and creative way to apply a rich and underutilized resource –

hundreds of thousands of retired and near retired health professionals –

to a serious and growing social problem – 47 million uninsured

Americans. Today, this innovative program works strategically with the

nation’s highest quality free clinics to match them with these retired

and near-retired physicians, nurses, dentists, pharmacists, mental

health specialists and other health professionals. TAP-IN has a strong

presence in Georgia, Texas, North Carolina and Virginia, with plans to

enter Ohio by Q4 2008. The formative program was supported by a two-year

initiating grant from The Atlantic Philanthropies, which, along with

others, continues to support the growth and development of the program.

To ensure TAP-IN's resources are used to the immediate benefit of the

community, TAP-IN identifies clinics that are positioned to deliver

multi-specialty care to patients in an environment that provides a

quality experience for their clinicians and patients. Recruitment of

health professionals is based on the specified needs of participating

clinics. In addition, TAP-In is providing offerings such as continuing

medical education in order to further assist retired healthcare

professionals in their endeavor to maintain their clinical expertise.

Working in conjunction with a preeminent, global strategy consulting

firm, TAP-IN has already embarked on a national expansion strategy with

impressive goals, but more importantly focused on measured growth based

on impact and incorporating best practices.

Reporting to the Co-Director, the Chief Communications Officer is a

newly created role and will be responsible for all aspects of TAP-IN’s

communications and marketing strategy. Serving as an integral member of

the Senior Executive Team, this executive will work collaboratively with

the Chief Program Officer, Chief Development Officer, and Chief

Operating Officer and will play a major role in planning the short and

long term branding, communications, and marketing strategy for TAP-IN. A

main responsibility will be attracting retired/near-retired health care

professionals to help serve the clinics within TAP-IN’s network. S/he

will develop a master plan for all marketing and communications

activities, especially in regards to brand identity, positioning, public

relations, media outreach and supporting communications collateral. This

executive’s mission will be to promote, enhance and protect the

organization’s brand reputation, serving when needed as an ambassador

for the organization, building relationships and advancing the

organization’s position with relevant constituents. S/he will ensure

that all marketing, communications and public relations activities are

consistent, build successively upon earlier efforts and are closely tied

into business plans. Continuity of efforts and taking ownership will be

major indicators of success. This is an outstanding opportunity for a

proven communications/marketing professional with great creativity, an

entrepreneurial spirit and a desire to join in a high-growth,

mission-driven organization.

TAP-IN is an Equal Opportunity Employer and encourages candidates of

all backgrounds to apply for this position. Bridgestar, a nonprofit

organization attracting, connecting, and supporting leadership for the
