*** One Paragraph Pitch:

Hi Ned-

Here’s my one paragraph pitch:

While focused on web analytics, web content writing, web 2.0 media, web development, promotion & placement, I also have broad technology experience, having worked at an ISP, managed IT for organizations, successfully managed my own tech-services business in a very competitive market, and have managed several public-facing web and technology projects. I'm a graduate of the University of BC/Web Analytics Association program in Web Analytics, and I am now tutoring in the program. I maintain a membership in the WAA. My largest client to date has ~9 million page views, and I want to go larger. I primarily work with Google Analytics, and am a Yahoo Ambassador. In addition to web analytics and search engine optimization, I specialize in internal & external communications, recently as a social media specialist for an Ottawa-based environmental organization where I took care of their Facebook, Flickr and other public-facing outlets. I have deep communications experience with my own company, achieving a significant client base through direct mail, Internet and print advertising. I have honed my writing and SEO skills – combined with the business intelligence gathering of web analytics, I’ve effected success with my clients. You can reach me at jeffdyoung@hotmail.com

Thanks,

Jeff Young

*** Why should I be offended?

Hi Ned,

I'm curious. Often, we see postings for positions in various places around

the world. One this week is for a communications specialist position at a

water corporation in New South Wales. Don't be offended but, are these

serious posts? Does this company actually want recruits from the US? As

interested as I might honestly be I can hardly imagine that these people

intend to recruit those who might be 12 time zones away. There must

certainly be qualified people much closer, easier to interview, easier to

relocate (if at all) and easier to feel comfortable with.

John C.

(Every job in JOTW is not meant for you. But every job in JOTW may be perfect for somebody.

Yes, those are legit jobs, and yes I have readers all over the world. I work hard to make this a community for communicators everywhere, not just in my home market.

The fact is, I can't tell what's the perfect job for you, and I don't judge the listings on the merits of what is perfect for me and apply that for all of the readers.)

*** From Mark Sofman:

“(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.)”

Good response, Ned. Better and far less snide than I might have been. So, aside from susbscribe/unscubscribe issues, do you track the number of complaints?

And this week's Alt gig – in the Marshall Islands – Wow, that's way better than Boar Stud Manager! 😉

The 7 Must Read SlideShare Presentations for Job Seekers These seven presentations are handpicked by the Applicant Blog at applicant.com . They also got some love from from getthatjobonline.com

1. Effective Job Interviewing from Both Sides of the Desk

It is gives great advice by looking at both sides of the job interview. My favorite tidbit is, “Your Awesomeness is not self-evident.”

2. 10 Job Search Attitudes that Will Get You More Interviews

Short, but sweet. I think attitude is often an overlooked piece in the job hunt puzzle. My favorite tidbit is, “I will search as if I don't need a job.”

3. Rethink your Job Search

This reads a bit like marketing material for JobTiger, but is still has good content. My favorite tidbit is, “Tap into job openings that may not have been published.”

4. Leveraging LinkedIn for the Job Search

A great little walkthrough on using LinkedIn for your job search. Favorite tidbit, “When you find a connection, leverage it to find other connections.”

5. 10 Commandements of Job Search

This is the presentation by the Applicant Blog, and it stresses staying positive. “Ignore the fact that your friend, uncle, aunt and even your mother-in-law is unemployed. It's about you.”

6. Job Serach with Social Media & Mobile

This is a great presentation that covers LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter & some mobile apps. “Maxims remain the same … tactics are very different.”

7. Converging Trends Impacting Your Job Search

It covers a lot of ground discussing marketing trends, social media and what networking means today. “Become a content expert … shift, cull & create content”

The Global Health Fellows Program (GHFP) is a five year cooperative agreement implemented and managed by the Public Health Institute in partnership with the Harvard School of Public Health, Management Systems International and Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine. GHFP is supported by the US Agency for International Development (USAID).

The goal of GHFP is to improve the effectiveness of USAID Population, Health and Nutrition programs by developing and increasing capacity of health professionals in Washington, DC and overseas. This is accomplished through the recruitment, placement and support of junior, mid and senior level health professionals; a diversity initiative focused on providing internship and mentoring opportunities in international public health to underrepresented communities; and professional and organizational development activities to bolster USAID’s ability to maximize results and strengthen its leadership role in global health.

INTRODUCTION

The US President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR or the Emergency Plan) initiative is the largest commitment ever by a nation toward an international health initiative for a single disease. Completing its first five years, PEPFAR is a multifaceted approach to combating the disease in more than 100 countries around the world. The strategy places an intensified approach on 15 focus countries in Africa, the Caribbean, and Asia that represent approximately half the world’s HIV infections. The US Congress reauthorized PEPFAR for another $48 billion from FY 2009 – FY 2013.

Kenya is the largest of the 15 focus countries in terms of funding. Under the Emergency Plan, Kenya is expected to receive over $560 million in FY 2010 to support a comprehensive HIV prevention, treatment and care program. Funding allocated to the USAID for FY 2009 is approximately $334 million.

In Kenya, a consortium of US Government (USG) agencies is charged with coordinating and managing PEPFAR under the leadership of the US Ambassador. These agencies include USAID, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Peace Corps, the Departments of State and Defense. The goal is to develop and implement one coherent USG HIV program in Kenya combining the comparative strengths and capabilities of all the participating government agencies.
