“If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strength, evade him. If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them. If sovereign and subject are in accord, put division between them. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected.”

There are communication jobs out there

Even as the number of tales mount of communicators whose jobs have become casualties of the economy, companies are at the same time hiring to fill critical communication positions. Here are three resources that list open positions companies are trying to fill:

IABC

The International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) lists jobs ranging from the executive level to specialists. Current listings include positions with companies like Avery Denison, Mercedes Benz USA, the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, Kaiser Permanente, and Symantec. You can apply directly from the site.

Job of the Week

IABC stalwart Ned Lundquist, ABC, started this email list when he and a few other communicators who were out of work at the time decided to share leads with one another. What started as a handful of subscribers to a simple list turned into an audience of thousands, and the email list is now also available in blog form.

The beauty of JOTW is that the community provides the leads. And there’s more than just job listings here; there’s also converation amnong the members of the community, which Ned aggregates into each weekly listing. When someone needs to fill a job immediately, Ned sends that out as a “JOTW Can’t Wait Posting.”

Current listings on JOTW are for organizations like the ATF, the American Red Cross, the National Children’s Museum, the CUNY School of Law, and Smucker’s. There are, incidentally, 61 open jobs listed in the latest edition, which is par for the course for JOTW.

*** Nobody could skate through a crowd like Bobby Orr:

*** Rock ‘n roll trivia:

This musical glam rock oddity has been a trend-setting force in music for five decades, although his career has zigged in different directions. He has co-written songs with John Lennon; collaborated on several albums with Brian Eno; joined with Queen for a hit single; shared an apartment with Iggy Pop; starred in Elephant Man on Broadway; and recorded a duet with Bing Crosby a month before the crooner passed away. With his original stage name he was often confused with one of the Monkees, but remembered to Alamo for inspiration. He's sold over 100 million records, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996, but only has one Grammy.

(Answer? The answer is posted now on the JOTW webpage. Visit www.nedsjotw.com. Read previous questions and answers at http://www.nedsjotw.com/blog/JOTWRocknRollTriviaQuiz.)

*** Last week’s Trivia Quiz:

Ned,

This week's quiz was interesting: I certainly recall loving “Hello, It's Me” and “I Saw the Light,” but did not know the former was anything other than a Rundgren solo effort. I was in the eighth or ninth grade, I believe, when I received as a Christmas present the album “Something/Anything,” which if I'm not mistaken also contained “We've Gotta Get You a Woman.” One of my other favorites from that album, I remember, was called “It Wouldn't Have Made Any Difference.”

*** London:

My trip to London was quick but not too stressful.

I departed Saturday night from Dulles and arrived just after 10 in the morning local time at Heathrow. Clearing immigration was easy and Customs, as usual, easier. I took the Heathrow Express to Paddington station where I bought a 3 GBP Oyster card and loaded 17GBP on it for getting around town. The Oyser Card is just like the SmarTrip card on the Washington Metro. It was good to have, although I walked just about everywhere. I took the Bakerloo line to Embankment and walked a couple of blocks up Northumberland Avenue to the Club Quarters (which is also the Grand Hotel). I was early, but they checked me in. I was in my room and online by 12:04. I took a walk into Trafalgar Square, and checked out the “Sisley in England and Wales” exhibition at the national Gallery. This museum is also full of Renaissance paintings and impressionist art. On Monday I took the Underground to Tower Hill and walked to Cinnabar Wharf (with the help of some passersby and especially the street sweeper) and paid a call to the International Maritime Bureau, which operated the Piracy Reporting Centre in Kuala Lumpur (where my weekly piracy reports come from). I then tubed back to Whitehall and called upon the Royal Uniformed Services Institute, which is located in the Old Banqueting House (http://www.hrp.org.uk/banquetinghouse/), which survived the fire of 1698. I perused the library whilst I waited for Bill Kincaid, editor of the RUSI Defense Journal. After noting just how many books they had in that library about Napoleon (a few on Wellington, Nelson and Churchill, I should add).

Bill and I discussed story ideas at the Horseguards Hotel over coffee, then headed to The Clarence for lunch (http://www.allinlondon.co.uk/clubs_bars/venue-319.php). There has been a pub at the site of the Clarence for more than 400 years. I proceeded to Le Meridien up in Piccadilly for the pre-conference workshop led by Prof. Geoff Till. Tuesday was the IQPC Ships Sef Defense and Survivability Conference all day, followed by the IABC accreditation masterclass up at Portman Square. We all went out to dinner at Zizzi’s on Wigmore Street. You can see our smiling faces at www.nedsjotw.com. The Wednesday session at the conference were also good, and my presentation on non-lethal mans of ship defense went well. I headed over to the Tower Hotel to see if I could bump into any of the Melcrum crowd but didn’t find anyone and so walked back to my hotel by way of the Thames Walk. On Thursday I checked out of my hotel, tubed to Paddington (not easy with luggage in the crowded train), bought my ticket for Heathrow. I arrived with plenty of time, checked in with the first class counter (I wasn’t flying first class, but my Premier status sometimes comes in handy), and bought a few “Mind the Gap” t-shirts to replace the worn ones my kids have. My flight to Dulles was half empty. I sat next to the U.S. Special Envoy for Holocaust Issues (http://www.state.gov/p/eur/rt/hlcst/).

*** 2009 IABC Heritage Region Chapter Leader Roundtables:

You're a busy communicator. On top of that — and your “after 5” commitments — you're an IABC chapter leader. You hear all this buzz about being heard, but who has time for that?!

It's a new year, so it's time to make time… to save time. Spend just an hour every other week talking to a group of people in the same boat as you — IABC leaders with no time, diminishing resources, increasing demands, etc.

The 2009 IABC Heritage Region Chapter Leader Roundtables will help you do more with less by putting you into a thoughtful discussion with other chapter leaders to discuss best practices (steal ideas), share issues and concerns (vent) and network (in case the dreaded down-sizing continues).

Tuesday, February 24: The ABCs of Professional Development (no pun intended)

All calls will be held from 12-1 p.m. EST. To join, dial 1-800-820-4690 and enter code 6212024#.

In the meantime, please contact me, IABC Heritage Region’s Chapter Relations Chair, to indicate whether you are able to join. Please note, everyone will be asked to contribute insight or experience — after all, it's a roundtable! If you can’t think of anything just yet, plan to call in anyway. The more leaders who join, the greater the value for everyone.

*** Staying balanced:

Ned,

In the course of hunting for a new position these last few months, I started to list some of the various resources on the Internet, including JOTW, of course. In some cases, the sites allow you to post your availability (as yours does) and/or a resumé and a cover letter. Some charge a fee and some do not, and I tried to note those that do. In some cases, they'll also review and recommend changes on your resume — for a fee, of course, which can be hefty in some cases.

I have some preferences, of course, and I've found some more useful than others, but, as always, each user should exercise his or her judgment as to what works. Speaking of the Internet, a former colleage says he's gotten job inquiries because of his listing on LinkedIn, the popular professional Web site . I've read that up to 25 percent of employers have scanned social media to see if — and what kind of — presence a prospective candidate has.

You'll note that I haven't listed Monster.com or CareerBuilder.com. My personal experience with both has been that the inquiries they generate if you post your resume on them are, by and large, from employers that have nothing to do with communications. Insurance companies, for example, seem to just want a warm body. Scan them for possible jobs, by all means, but be aware that these two sites, as large as they are, don't tend to produce solid job leads for communicators.

You're welcome to use this in whatever form you wish. Or, as I like to tell my clients, you're welcome to adopt, adapt or reject it.

I keep encouraging people in all professions to reach out to someone who's unemployed right now. Offer to read their cover letters and resumés, listen to their woes about job hunting, take them out for a cup of coffee — whatever will help. I just ran into a guy at my neighborhood Starbuck's who's been working there for two years after getting laid off from a 16-year stint in graphic arts at a major brokerage firm. I've been laid off (several times), and the worst thing you can do is to ignore them because you think they don't want to be reminded that they're unemployed. They need help, even if they don't know how to ask for it or don't know what they need. Half the battle in a job search — particularly in these perilous times — is to stay emotionally balanced and positive.

Best wishes, and keep up the great work you do.

*** 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 10,846 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,
