*** Communications issues in a cross cultural environment:

On behalf of Ned Lundquist, ABC, vice chair of the IABC Accreditation Council, I am pleased to invite you to join UAE-based members of the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) for a discussion on “Communications issues in a cross cultural environment”. The UAE is probably one of the most diverse business environments, and given the growing importance and influence of the GCC in global businesses, this is surely a timely moment for us to identify common issues that confront our daily business lives, and explore solutions that make a difference.

Date: Sunday, 19 April 2009

Time: 3:45pm – 5:30 pm

Venue: We will confirm the exact location once we have an indication of numbers. This is most likely to be in the vicinity of Emirates Palace as traffic and parking will be more manageable. F&B will be at your own expense.

Ned Lundquist, ABC, is an award-winning communicator who is visiting Abu Dhabi that week. He will facilitate our discussion. We will examine communication issues from a global and regional context. Ned will help us identify issues, and explore potential solutions that tap on the services, expertise and resources IABC and its members around the world can offer.

IABC (www.iabc.com) provides a professional network of over 15,500 business communication professionals in over 80 countries. We have an exciting opportunity to shape the communications profession in the UAE, and we will be pleased if you can join us for the discussion.

If you are able to do so, please confirm your participation on this email, or call me at mobile 05 0 875 4977, by Wednesday, 15 April 2009.

*** How to? Who to?

Hello,

I received my first JOTW newsletter on March 16th and I am unsure how

to go about applying. I read that I was supposed to send an email with the job

description to this address and you will tell me who to contact. I hope I am

right!

E.S.

(Every job listed in the contents is then listed again further below with

more information, including a link or contact info. Try scrolling down. Then get back to me and let me know if that helped?)

*** Safe?

Ned, every time an interesting civilian military job comes up (i.e. Public Affairs Specialist) and I click on the USA Jobs link to apply, a window appears saying something along the lines of “chart.donhr.navy.mil uses an invalid security certificate.” Basically my computer doesn't recognize the security certificate and I'm hesitant to ignore the warning just to get to the application.

Have you or the other JOTW'ers come across this problem before?

– Steph

(usajobs is about as safe a site as you can visit. I don't know why you get that warning, but I would trust that site. )

*** JOTW Rock and Roll Trivia Quiz:

The nucleus of this American band came together in Columbus, Ohio, but moved to Boston because the music scene was a better place for new bands to break into the business. They performed as Milkwood, Richard and the Rabbits, and even backed up comedian Martin Mull and his Fabulous Furniture. Eventually they jelled with a new band and a simple name, “It's so easy to spell; it doesn't have a 'z' on the end; it's real authentic. It's pop art, in a sense.” They caught a break when a DJ on WBCN played their demo, and from that airplay came a record deal. Their debut album went platinum and was #18 on the Billboard top 100 in 1978. One music critic said “they have taken some important but disparate contemporary trends—punk minimalism, the labyrinthine synthesizer and guitar textures of art rock, the '50s rockabilly revival and the melodious terseness of power pop—and mixed them into a personal and appealing blend.” In fact, they melded not-quite-punk new wave with pop. Their most successful single, which came out in 1984, gained particular notability when it was used in a video of the Ethiopian famine prepared by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and introduced by David Bowie at the 1985 Live Aid concert at Wembley Stadium in London. Some of the members of this band are no longer with us, and others have had solo careers since the band broke up. While there hasn't been a reunion tour, a few of them still tour along with Todd Rundgren doing their famous songs (I know, everyone tours with Todd Rundgren doing their famous stuff).

*** From Mike Sorohan:

Which Metro station is this near?

(If you are coming from Jogeshwari or up north on the Western line, then it’s a straight shot down to Churchgate. If you are at Matunga you can take the Central Line to Dadar and change to the Western Line. It’s only an 11 minute walk from the Chatrapathi Shivaji Railway Terminus, which is on the Central and Harbor lines, to the Ambassador Hotel in Churchgate. You could follow Marty on the Segway.)

*** Take command! Aligning communications with leadership:

Wow, I would love to attend this conference–all the issues I keep up with, but India is not a travel option for me now. Please let me know if such a conference comes to the US. I'm job hunting now due to budget cuts (1,600+ jobs cut and mine is one of them) and again appreciate your diligence in keeping us informed of opportunities-been a subscriber since 2002. There is a special seat in Heaven for you.

Be well.

Janis

*** Pimp My Job:

Earlier this summer my position was eliminated due to workforce reductions. However, I was offered and I accepted a position with a Federal Agency. This particular agency requires a Top Secret Clearance to walk in the door. Clearances take from 4-8 months. I can't accept any full-time position because that would be unethical…considering I've technically accepted a full-time job offer. So how do you find short-term work in order to pay the bills, etc.

Secretly Waiting

Dear Secretly Waiting,

I agree; you probably shouldn’t accept a full-time position while waiting for this clearance to…umm…clear.

The obvious answer, as you probably already know, it short-term contract work (if you can find it). Or temp work. There are some good communications temp agencies out there, such as Professional Solutions LLC (http://www.prstaffing.com/ManagementTeam.htm), operated by IABC/Washington’s Kate Perrin.

Or this could also give you the opportunity to do something completely different. I plan to become a bus driver/soccer referee when I’m deemed no longer fit for communication work. Or go to school; start that masters/doctorate you’ve been thinking about getting.

I’m sure the Dream Team has some other ideas.

Mike

Dear Secretly Waiting,

I would press ahead with your job search and maybe you will find a better deal/job – unless of course this Federal Agency is your dream job.

Also, there are probably some employers who would be interested in hiring a full-time worker on a short-term basis – provided the job won't require much training. Just let them know your situation.

Volunteer – get involved in a local charity, this will serve as an important resume filler and permit you to keep your skills honed while help people out. Search out food banks and offer to help with their donor communications.

If you have the money – travel. If you don't have the money – travel cheaply. Cut your expenses at home – and use the savings to fund your adventures.

Marty

*** Questions received via Twitter for the IABC/Washington Senior Communicators Council “JOTW/Pimp My Job” session held in DC on April 2:

1) From @k8johnston: re: resumes — one page or two? make follow up call or no?

Marty: Depends on experience – new graduate 1 page, veteran, 2 pages.

Mike: I liked Vic Beck’s [@vickbeck on Twitter] suggestion about having “addendums,” particularly electronically. References, key contacts, curriculum vitae; as long as it doesn’t sound like name-dropping.

Ned: Depends. Some hiring managers want to see experience, especially headhunters trying to fill a specific job. If you’ve got experience, the more the better.

2) From @adventureadored: Unemplyd. Lookng 4 comm job w. intl company so can eventually move abroad. Only 2 yrs experience. Where 2 start looking?

Marty: Have you considered the military – seriously. Are you fluent in languages (written and spoken) other than English? Start with foreign companies with US presence headquartered in a country where you are FLUENT in the language.

Mike: Or perhaps the State Department; they like young people who are willing to go anywhere for two years.

Ned: Lot’s of NGOs looking for communicators. You go to exciting places like The Sudan or The Congo. Bring Deep Woods Off.

From @mjleonard (2 questions):

4) With layoffs & business failures, people that have known one thing/way in their life are displaced. Tips for those folks?

Marty: If you look back on your career – chances are that you have made changes. Use this as an opportunity to reinvent – new career, new industry, new you.

Mike: A good point made at the meeting on Thursday—attitude is everything. You have to see this as a new opportunity, instead of a potentially career-ending disruption. Make lemonade.

Ned: Now is the time to reach out to your friends and see what you can do to help them. This “nedworking” will result in positive and unanticipated consequences. Trust me.

5) When unemployed, often people jump at the first offer. Can that haste hurt in the long run since the search effectively ends?

Marty: When unemployed, jump at the first offer – unless you have a lot of cash reserves. Spend two years in that job and move.

Mike: I think it depends on situation, but largely agree. In this market, where we know people who have been out on more than two dozen interviews, an offer is golden. In this economy, you can afford to be in an imperfect career match for a year or two.

Ned: Go on an interview for a job you know you will hate. Then give them an emphatic “NO!” That will cure you off your impatience for up to 72 hours.

6) From @TerriJohnson: What should students know about Twitter and how can they use it in the job hunt?

Marty: Everything you say can be used against you in a court of law. Be careful about what you type, and write as if you are sending it to your future boss.

Mike: Like Ned said at meeting: You need to choose your ground. You have to be a darn good editor to get a job in 250 characters or less.

Ned: I can’t count that high.

7) From @sassingme: how can you standout in a sea of people in this market? especially during the all important, get through HR phone interview?

Marty: For a phone interview, bring a mirror into the room, and before you get on the call, look into the mirror, practice smiling a couple of times. Sit up straight, dress the part, have your documents handy.

Mike: Put your best self forward and make a heckuva first impression. I like to watch “Survivor,” particularly the first couple of episodes, to study what people do to make a positive impressions that keep them on the tribe and what people do to ensure that they’re the first voted off. (That’s right—I went there; reality show as an educational tool.)

Ned: You are who you are. Make sure your resume says just who you are, and how you are unlike anyone else. In that first phone interview with HR, be yourself. You want to be hired for that reason, not because they think they’re getting somebody you are not.

*** In the new social media landscape we all live in — where can professional services firms find the right marketing mix? Should lawyers be on Twitter? Should insurance agencies have a Facebook page? Can LinkedIn or YouTube be effective social media? How much is too much?

Join Area 224 — strategic communications advisors to emerging brands — for a webinar on Thursday, April 23 — where Area 224's Dave Van de Walle gives B2B communicators the strategy session they've been craving — how to navigate through what can seem like a minefield and use social media to connect more, have more relevant conversations, and sell more services.

Hi Edward,

I thought this was a listserv that distributes regular emails with job openings (hence the name “Job of the Week”) – is this not correct?

Thank you.

40.) Account Coordinator, The Townsend Group, Bethesda, MD

The Townsend Group specializes in national advertising, sponsorship and exhibit sales for associations. We have been business more than 25 years and count among our clients some of the most prestigious associations in the U.S. We offer competitive compensation plans, profit sharing and bonuses.

We are looking for a full-time Account Coordinator interested in working in a fast-paced environment. This is a sales support position for multiple national advertising sales managers.

Position reports to Senior Manager/Operations and National Sales Managers.

Main job responsibilities:

– Keep track of contracts. This includes entering them into our electronic system, organizing them in binders and comparing them to our reports at the end of the month.

– Prospecting. This includes knowing the accounts you work on intimately, being able to identify advertisers that are a good fit for the magazine's audience, and generally staying on top of industry trends for the accounts you work on.

– Traffic advertising artwork. At the end of the monthly sales cycle, account coordinators are responsible for making sure artwork gets to the production department. This includes calling/emailing advertisers multiple times to make sure they know about our deadlines.

– Update databases. Occasionally account coordinators are asked to help clean databases to remove old contact information, enter in new contacts and put contacts into categories (industry segments).

– Attend internal meetings. Account Coordinators are expected to attend bi-weekly meetings to discuss strategy.

– Attend client meetings. Account Coordinators are expected to participate in occasional meetings with our clients.

– Assist with promotional writing and marketing. We send out a lot of promotional efforts and Account Coordinators are asked to provide their feedback and offer suggestions for improvement.

– Other administrative duties.

A positive, upbeat attitude is a must!

Great opportunity to learn about advertising, marketing, publishing, market research and promotion.

Proficiency in Word, Excel, Internet research. Demonstrated administrative skills should include spreadsheet and database creation, contract fulfillment, report generation. Excellent written and verbal communication skills. Proven customer-service ability in a service-oriented environment. Solid organizational and time management skills. Ability to manage multiple tasks and attention to detail.

This is a full time position that we need to start as soon as possible.

What this job is:

A great opportunity for an entry(ish) level person to learn a ton about the advertising industry (specifically print advertising). It offers a great opportunity to build a general foundation in business and build a strong portfolio for the future.

Being a small company, the job offers the opportunity to “wear different hats.” It is not boring.

This is an extremely challenging position with a lot of responsibility and accountability. It requires that employees be engaged in their work and be able to work autonomously.

What this job is not:

This is not a job with a firm that creates advertising campaigns; we sell advertising for association magazines.

This is not a job in public relations or event management. For people who are interested in business and are driven toward successful careers, this job is not boring. This job is not photocopying and filing; account coordinators are the foundation of our business and we rely on them wholly and completely.
