JOTW 41-2009

12 October 2009

“When life demands more of people than they demand of life – as is ordinarily the case – what results is a resentment of life almost as deep-seated as the fear of death”

– Tom Robbins

Your JOTW delivery was delayed. We took advantage of the long weekend.

Today is actually the 13th, and I put the Navy flag out when we got back from the mountains in honor of the Navy birthday.

We enjoyed some of my Dutch oven experimentation (chicken pot pie; apple crisp; beef stroganoff), and watched the ravens, wood ducks and Pileated woodpeckers, and heard but did not see owls and kingfishers. This time of the year, the soft reds and golden leaves, fluttering down in the breeze like rain, is a beautiful sight. There was ample rain this year, so the North River was gurgling along. You will indulge us if we took spontaneous advantage of the very long weekend, making it just a bit longer.

I had 354 new emails when I got home. If I didn’t get to all of your jobs this week, I’ll try and make it up to you, maybe, perhaps.

Welcome to the award-winning free Job of the Week e-mail networking newsletter for professional communicators, dedicated to the positive unanticipated consequences of networking. JOTW is a cooperative service that relies on the contributions of its members, like you. We share job opportunities, news and information about the job market, as well as swapping stories about life's peculiarities.

(JOTW is a cooperative service. We help each other. People find out about job opportunities and send them to me to share with the list. There's a karma factor involved, too. So, send us listings from your part of the world, and you shall be rewarded in this life and the next. We count upon your spirited participation.)

First of all, it doesn't cost you a cent. 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 friends can sign up by sending a blank e-mail

to JOTW-subscribe@topica.com. It's free for them, too.

You are among 11,198 subscribers in this community of communicators.

This is newsletter number 800.

Since the JOTW newsletter was started, more than 25,000 job opportunities have been listed and shared with members of this network. 26,483 to be exact, as of this morning.

I can’t change your e-mail address for you. But you can. Send a blank e-mail from your old account to JOTW-unsubscribe@topica.com. Then send a blank e-mail from your new account to JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.

If you can read this newsletter, then you are on the JOTW list. If you did not receive your JOTW newsletter by email in your in box this morning, it is because you have a junk mail folder, spam filter, or capacity issues on your end.

*** One Paragraph Pitch:

I have extensive experience in devising multi-platform marketing communications strategies across a number of communications industries, with deliverables that are clearly monetized.

My brand building successes are clearly delineated. I have deep media contacts in a variety of disciplines – both consumer and trade. I have a reputation for thinking quickly on my feet, and I am an articulate company spokesperson.

Throughout my career, I have consistently exploited whatever digital opportunities were available at the time, and I am conversant with today's digital space and how to market my client/product on it.

I hope you'll agree that my background is a fit for your position, and that I can add value to your company.

“Can’t Wait Opportunity: Help Payless Give Away $1.2M in shoes to

children in need

My name is Rob Hallam and I lead communication and social responsibility

at Collective Brands, Inc, the parent company of Payless ShoeSource,

Stride Rite, Sperry Top-Sider, Saucony and other great lifestyle brands.

Our Payless division is once again seeking out local charities to help

distribute $1,200,000 in coupons for new shoes to children of families

in need. This year, the program has been expanded beyond the United

States to include Canada, Puerto Rico and the ten countries in Latin

America in which we operate Payless stores.

With Ned’s and your help last year we attracted qualified applications

from 2,667 US 501C3 charities, selected 634 and through them distributed

nearly 67,000 coupons. This year that number will be about 77,000

coupons. The application period is from now until October 30; selected

charities will be announced on November 24 and the coupons will be valid

for the months of December through February, 2009/2010.

Please forward this email to any charities you think could apply. All

the details for the program can be found at www.paylessgives.com. Last

holiday season a lot of deserving kids got their first pair of new shoes

ever through this program. With your help we can reach even more this

year.

Best regards,

Rob Hallam

Vice President, Communication & Social Responsibility

Collective Brands, Inc

rob.hallam@collectivebrands.com

*** More on Payless:

hi Ned — This is great stuff. I plan to forward to local charities I know.

Thanks!

Cindy Starks

*** Regarding the Payless opportunity:

Ned,

Thank you for sharing this message with your network. You are amazing what

you are able to impact!

Dani

Danette G. (Dani) Kauffman

*** From Paul Hart:

Great program. I sent this on to my friend Mark Roye, director of Blood N Fire, a multi-church, inner-city ministry here in San Antonio. They do some great work, including a “Share Your Sole” (pun intended) program to give shoes to needy kids.

Best,

Paul Hart, APR

*** Ethically speaking:

Ned,

Call me a cynic, but why would a competent communicator take a job as writer/editor for the Senate Select Committee on Ethics when it seems apparent that the intended audience likely will never read the thing? Just wondering.

Ken Jensen

(You don’t think they can be selective about ethics?)

*** From Shonali Burke, ABC:

Join IABC/Washington at its 2009 Silver Inkwell Awards gala on October 22, where we'll come together to congratulate the winners of this year's awards program. This year, business communicators in the greater Washington area were invited to submit entries for awards in 64 categories, from print, visual and digital communications to communication planning and campaigns. Judges paid particular attention to whether or not entries included measurable objectives and results – an area in which award entries often fall short. This year, we're delighted that we will award 29 awards of merit, five awards of excellence and even one “best of the best.” Winners across all three levels include the American Society of Radiology and Oncology, Sodexo Inc., Booz Allen Hamilton, Holy Cross Hospital and the GPO Employee Communications Office, to name just a few.

Please join us on October 22 at the Ritz-Carlton Pentagon City in Arlington, Va., to network, view the winning entries and announce the winners in each category. Our keynote speaker this year is communication icon Ned Lundquist, ABC, founder of the award-winning JOTW, who also chairs IABC's International Accreditation Council and has won several communication awards himself. Ned will speak on what sets an award-winning entry apart from the rest and how the pursuit of IABC accreditation – the global standard for excellence in business communication – can help put you on the right path.

The Silver Inkwell gala begins at 6 pm with a welcome reception, followed by dinner and awards at 7:15 pm. Costs begin at $80 for IABC members and $90 for non-members in advance; tables are also available. Register before the early bird deadline of Oct. 20 via IABC/Washington's website here. We thank our sponsor BurrellesLuce, and look forward to seeing you there!

*** From C. Blake Powers:

Just wondered how many people on the JOTW list were going to be at

the Blog World and New Media Expo this week

(http://blogworldexpo.com). I went last year, and not only learned a

lot, I got roped into putting together a day's worth of programs for

the event. If anyone from the list is going to be there, either drop

me a message on Twitter @Laughingwolf or I will be spending a lot of

time at the Milblog Lounge in the exhibit hall.

As required by recent government regulation of new and social media

by the FTC, I am getting, at the least, a free membership to Blog

World in exchange for many weeks of hard work in trying to herd cats

and otherwise get panelists and put together programs for the event.

I hope I get more. I can dream, for they can't yet regulate or tax

dreams…

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.

To subscribe, or to add a new e-mail address for your subscription, send

a blank e-mail to:

JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.

To unsubscribe: JOTW-unsubscribe@topica.com.

To change your address, do both. I can't do it for you.

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,
