*** Accreditation in your future?

ABC: easy as 1-2-3

By Kirsten Lambert

http://www.iabcchicago.com/documents/Ragan_Nonprofit_Communicators_Update_June_2008.pdf

*** Books to Ethiopia:

I asked Bill Ryerson at Population Media Center’s HQ in Vermont if he has received a lot of material to send over to the PMC Media Resource Library in Addis Ababa, in addition to the several loads he’s already shipped there:

Dear Ned,

We have about 12 cartons of books in the Vermont office. Thato is working on making arrangements to ship them to Addis.

Best wishes,

Bill

His response.*** The National Gallery at Trafalgar Square:

This is a great museum, with no admission charge. There is an incredible collection of Renaissance paintings from Fra Angelico, Botticelli, Titian, Raphael, Fra Lippo, and others. The Impressionist collection is also superb, with numerous paintings from Monet, Van Gogh, Gaugan, Renoir, Seurat and others, along with a special exhibition of Sisley’s works from the U.K. and Wales, which includes his only seascapes. I learned a lot about the Impressionist’s era, where oil paints in tubes, new colors, and squared brushes, were revolutionizing the art world. Impressionist painting look so easy to do, but they are anything but simple. Cezanne said that Monet was 'only an eye, but my God what an eye.’

*** Alternative selections:

Hi Ned,

Just wondering why you listed a job for a cashier in Maine the other day. Was that supposed to be funny?

Thanks,

LC

(I traditionally have alternative selections for those communicators who want to bail out of the business and do something totally different. It started out as warm jobs in winter time, like a bartender in Key West. But Mark Sofman, who sent those, was looking at jobs in the far-flung corners of the country.)

OK, now I get it. Maybe there should be a separate section for those.

Also – As a seasoned writer who is hedging my bets and going into voiceover and video on-camera work (in this new economy rates for tech writers, etc., are plummeting on the West Coast), I would be thrilled to also see listings for those sorts of occasional narration/acting gigs by your communicators, most of whom do casting at some point.

Thanks for providing this service, Ned.

*** Rock ‘n roll trivia:

This artist's band, “Nazz,” had a couple of 1967 hits, “Open My Eyes” and “Hello It's Me.” His next band, “Runt,” (which featured Soupy Sales two sons charted a 1970 top 40 hit in the U.S. with “We Gotta Get You a Woman.” He scored considerable success as a solo artist and even scored a few episodes of Pee Wee's Playhouse, and composed the music for “Dumb and Dumber.” One of his hits is unofficial anthem of the Green Bay Packers. He continues to record and perform, releasing an album last year.

*** This is your Job of the Week e-mail newsletter, a cooperative

service of professional communicators providing mutual support to one

another. The JOTW serves 10,842 professional communicators. Please help

contribute job opportunities so that this information can be shared with

everyone in the network. The key to successful networking is living by

the golden rule. Do something to help a fellow communicator, and some day they may be in a position to help you, or someone else like you.

How does it work? If you find out about a job opportunity in

communications, send it to me (lundquist989@cs.com), and I'll share it

with the JOTW network. It's that simple. And we share dozens of

opportunities each week. Did I mention it was free?

Your cooperation is requested. Please send job opportunities to share

with all JOTW members to lundquist989@cs.com.

Feel free to share this newsletter. Feel free to forward opportunities.

Do not copy words that I wrote and use them as your own. I throw these

words in here just to see if someone is stupid enough to copy these

words entirely from my newsletter without changing them.

If your e-mail address is changing, please delete the old one and add your

new one. Here's how:

To subscribe, or to add a new e-mail address for your subscription, send

a blank e-mail to:

JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.

To delete:

JOTW-unsubscribe@topica.com

I can repeat this process again if it helps.

You are welcome to distribute this to fellow communicators. You are

welcome to look at the previous issues. To read this list on the web,
