*** 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 11,119 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.

REMEMBER: Until May 5, send opportunities to Shonali Burke, ABC, at shonali.burke@gmail.com, who’s guest-editing JOTW while Ned roams the world.

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, please visit: http://www.topica.com/lists/JOTW/read or www.nedsjotw.com.
