*** One Paragraph Pitch:

Hi Ned,

I just discovered your site through a friend–what an amazing resource!! If you have room for a new OPP, I would be most grateful! Here goes:

Why You Should Hire Me.

My name is Virginia Williams, and I'm a “Want to Change the Worldaholic.” I've been told I have a “colorful” resume: sprinkled with a mix of management, creative and marketing experience that drives those executive search firms' automated computers crazy. Then again I've also been told by real people that this is a good thing. I've run my own media company for the last 12 years, producing specials and series for network television, as well as social marketing and advocacy multi-platform media campaigns for corporations, non-profits and pr firms. I've decided to “take the shingle down” to pursue a position as Creative Director or Communications Director for a socially/environmentally conscious organization or PR firm in the San Francisco Bay area. I will gladly meet you for a virtual or real coffee to discuss why I might be the perfect person for your empty chair in the corner office. : ) My respect for proper English grammar propels me to say that these sentences should be in separate graphs, but I'm sure you'll understand my enthusiasm. Please contact me at virginia@newviewfilms.tv.

Thanks so much for reading!

I asked Bill Ryerson for report on how many books have been contributed to the PMC Media Center in Addis Ababa?

I am guessing it comes to about 15 cartons. A very successful effort. Many thanks.

*** Tom and I worked at the Old Dominion Chapter Order of the Arrow Ordeal, held at Camp Moss Hollow in Markham, Va. It rained all night Friday and all day Saturday, so we were both soaked from head to toe. We still accomplished a lot, including gathering am impressive pile of walnuts from the trees in front of the dining hall. Did I tell you I got wet? We saw some deer up close on numerous occasions. One would bound off in leaps and bounds with her white tail high in the air. As wet and awful as the weather was on Saturday, it was beautiful, crisp and clear on Sunday. October is my favorite month, I think.

*** Rock ‘n roll trivia:

What 1969 number 1 hit was such an “embarrassing…insult” to performers Gary DeCarlo, Paul Leka and Dale Frashuer (who recorded the song as B-side fodder in one session) that they didn't want to take credit for the record. A fictitious band name was selected instead. Name the song and the band. Now sing it out loud.

*** From Chelsea Marti:

Hi Ned,

Just wanted to let you know that through your newsletter I found out about my newly acquired job with Intuit! My new boss posted the position with you all and we began our conversation from there.

Anyhow, when it is possible for me, I'll find a way to give back to Ned's JOTW. You've really created a community for communicators many social media gurus would salivate over. It is based on valuable content that is hard to find elsewhere, plus participation of members.

I'm unsubscribing from all of the alerts, etc. I set up for job searching since grad school (took 10 months to find a really good fit) but I'd never think of keeping your newsletter

from my inbox. I think your communication savvy really shines through

here because you provide value to all of us communicators everywhere.

The newsletter is more about networking than jobs (though that is a big

value for job seeking communicators, for sure).

Thanks again for helping me make a connection with a wonderful company,

Chelsea Marti

*** Political commentary from the otherwise apolitical Ned Lundquist:

I voted yesterday. Because I will be underway on a U.S. Navy ship on election day (what a great excuse to vote absentee, hey?), I voted at the Fairfax County satellite government center in West Springfield. Even there I encountered people trying to hand my candidate materials, days before the actual election.

I have my “I voted” sticker, but that won't stop the calls coming to my house, or the people trying to jam something into my hands.

For weeks I had to navigate a swarm of people trying to register me to vote at the Franconia-Springfield Metro station. I was, of course, already registered. And I applaud efforts to get people to register. But if I were not registered, I sure wouldn't give my personal data to a stranger at the Metro station.

I'm glad I'm done with this election. The rest of you have to wait a few more weeks. I haven't been what you would call undecided, but I am a middle of the road American, and a centrist if there is such a thing. You would think not by this campaign. Everyone is being torn from the center to the right or the left. The campaign has gone on way too long, and now there is nothing to do but scare us voters.

Last June, my Canadian friend Eric Bergman, told me that the American presidential campaign just went on forever. And that was last June. By now I'm sick of it and sick of them. What benefit is there at this point to continue this campaign. The process is not helpful to the electorate, not to mention the waste of money. Imagine what could have been accomplished with that money. Hundreds of millions of dollars that go for TV ads to slay what a jerk the other guy is. The waste is obscene.

This election turns friends into offensive boors. Both sides show irrefutable evidence that their candidate is right, and the other soooo wrong. They are preaching to their own congregations. Nothing is accomplished. If you don't agree with their position, you are negatively categorized. I'm being diplomatic because these are my friends I'm talking about.

The pols say the battle is for the undecideds, but I cannot think of any promises or slurs coming out of either candidate now that would change my mind. I've said all along that this game will be decided on a fumble, or a blocked kick, and I think I may be right.

To listen to these candidates gives me a headache. Both call for change. But this is Washington. The debates resolved nothing. If i want to watch an argument I don't need to turn on a TV in my house. Change is by design hard to accomplish, because all change must be approved and paid for by the Congress. The only way to get something through Congress is to rub shoulders and scratch backs, and the people we are thinking about electing are part of that process. So much for change.

And what if there was change. Big change. There is no scenario that will make all of you change-seekers happy. Change will not mean change the way you want it for you and your own interests. So be careful for what you ask for.

As for me, I just ask for this election to be over.

*** From Celeste:

Unlike in some states where campaign fatigue is an epidemic, here in Texas you would almost wonder if there is actually an election going on. The biggest campaign down here in SAT is whether or not to extend term limits for city council members. The presidential campaigns agreed that Texas was a foregone conclusion (red state, I'd have to assume) and have ignored us completely. Well, except for the numerous fundraising “opportunities” we've been offered.

My concern about the evolving and ever-increasing sophistication of political campaign strategy is that entire swaths of the country that are not considered to be “in play” are left out of what should be a national discussion on issues that matter to all of us as a country. The campaigns have largely ignored Texas, and many other states, leaving the average person here uninvolved and causing young people to miss out on the opportunity to engage in a civic dialogue.

The price we will pay for better campaign strategy is the demise of a shared sense of responsibility for civic involvement and participation in the processes that sustain America's true ideals… liberty, justice and dignity… freedom AND responsibility… in one nation, filled with opportunity for all. Watching the circus into which our political leadership has devolved causes me to fear that the ideals on which America was founded are no longer those for which we still stand today.

*** From Bill Salvin:

Candidate fatigue weighs heavily these days. In the mail today, we got three notices from candidates begging for our vote and one pamphlet urging us to protect marriage. I would donate to either party, provided they agreed to stop campaigning. My sense is that will probably not become a sustainable model. Enjoy being at sea.

*** When it comes to Eagle Scout service projects times sure have

changed! (Look at the other video section for the Boy Scouts….)

*** Real news:

Here’s a release that came to my attention. Is this news? You be the judge.

“…our website is getting close to a re-launch, and should be ready to share with the marketplace in early December.”

*** Advice for Sahor (See questions and comments in last week’s JOTW, available at www.nedsjotw.com:

Temple University has a robust Career Services department along w/ alumni in various fields. She should contact the Careers Svcs office at Temple and network with alums at Companies at which she'd like to work. The H1-B visa can be a problem. Another thought–has she contacted the Ogilvy PR Worldwide? They have offices in Asia and the Pacific Rim. Perhaps she could work for a global PR firm in Japan, put in a couple of years, and then transfer to an office in the States.

Good luck!
