*** From Deedee Dillingham:

Hi Ned ~

I'm on your listserv to receive notice of communications positions.

While I'm OK with a stray posting here and there, especially if it's positive and non harmful — such as today's (Aug. 31) posting for guinea pig volunteers — I do not find postings that include harming or killing animals fit for your online job source, such as:

64.) Boar Stud Manager, Various locations in IL, MO, OH, IN

http://www.animalsciencejobs.com/jobseeker/Profile.aspx?JobAdID=112656&sitefromid=2&siteid=291

I myself found the posting above to be offensive as a caring and compassionate animal advocate.

Just wondering what your response is to this…thanks in advance, Deedee Dillingham, Liverpool, NY

(I have shared more than 26,000 communication jobs with my fellow communicators. I end the newsletter with a few jobs that are as far from the communication field as I can find for those who want something completely different. This one is completely different. And remember, no live animals were harmed in the publishing of this newsletter.)

*** More?

Dear Ned,

I've been a devotee for a couple of years and spread the word about your great jobs listing and other useful and fun information.

I'm interested in applying for this week's #8 position at the UN Foundation, however the link below does not offer the said position. Can you please have the UNF clarify the directions for applying? Perhaps they haven't updated their website?

Many thanks.

Best,
