*** One Paragraph Pitch:

I have a strong background in promotional marketing and copy editing. I

worked for three years as a Program Manager at Summit Marketing where I

maintained several e-Stores. Prior to Summit Marketing, I interned for USPS

as a Copy Editor for a daily publication sent to all Postal employees.

After moving to San Diego last Fall, I have found it difficult to find

full-time employment. I have been temping consistently for a variety of

companies. For example, I worked at Jack in the Box in Print Production

where I was responsible for ordering and designing signage for all

restaurant locations. Currently, I am temping for Booz Allen Hamilton as a

Learning and Development Facilitator. I schedule multiple classes on a

daily basis for which all Booz Allen associates participate.

I am seeking a career in marketing, but open to other opportunities in the

San Diego area. I adapt easily to work environments and learn quickly. I'm

eager to find a company in which I can learn and grow.

*** Sign up for some cool offers

Shonali Burke turned me on to Groupon, and I heard about it on the Area 224 site. I had to check it out. Each day Groupon tells you about something cool to do, see, buy, or eat at an unbeatable price, in your area…provided that the minimum number of people sign up. For example, if a Groupon offer let’s you buy $35 worth of coffee for $15, you only get that offer if the minimum number of people set by the company making that offer actually sign up for it. That way the company knows it will have a certain amount of business in order to extend the offer. They get customers. You save money.

Sign up to receive daily Groupon offers in your area.

If you sign up, Ned gets $10 to buy stuff with at Groupon, and you don’t have to buy a thing.

*** The JOTW 2009 Holiday Blessing

I have traditionally asked my friend, shipmate, and best man Pat Tracy to offer a blessing each year. I did so again in 2009, but this time invited any and all of you to participate and contribute. The blessings were shared with the network and posted on my website at http://www.nedsjotw.com/blog/%20CommunicationJobs/_archives/2009/12/23/4410613.html.

There was quite a response, and those contributions sparked more feedback, posted here:

*** From Jen Rodriguez:

May God continue to shine upon you this glorious season as we enter into the New Year, trust, believe and receive all that He has for you. Knowing that the best always comes from Him. j=

*** From Kathy Westra:

Blessings to you, Ned, for keeping JOTW vigorous and timely and useful to all of us.

To all, I offer a blessing for the winter season and the year's turning. It is not my own, but the first verse and chorus of a song sung and recorded by poet, singer, and woodcarver Gordon Bok of Camden, Maine. :

Hearth and fire be ours tonight,

And all the dark outside.

Fair the night, and kind on you

Wherever you may bide.

And I'd be the sun upon your head,

The wind about your face,

My love upon the path you tread,

And on all your wanderings, peace.

Happiest of new years to you.

Kathy Westra, Silver Spring, MD

*** From Ed Fulginiti:

Blessings to you too, Ed, and know your efforts here are a constant joy!

Ed Fulginiti

*** From Jacqueline Todd, APR:

Ned-

Thanks for sharing the holiday blessings. I enjoyed reading them and found the diversity of thought very interesting. I especially enjoyed reading Pat Tracy's blessing, which really brought it home for me.

Best wishes to you and the entire JOTW family for a happy holiday and a prosperous 2010!

Thanks for all that you do,

Jacqueline Todd, APR

*** From Don Scott:

Ned:

I embraced the many holiday wishes and expressions of thanks posted by JOTW members. Admittedly, I was taken aback by the very last “blessing” from your friend and best man, Pat Tracy, who chose to use this stage for his Republican propaganda. It's both disappointing and irritating to end the year with that. Apparently Pat was under the impression that this was a Fox-owned medium with a like-minded audience.

Happy holidays to JOTW, its friends and its captain.

Don Scott

*** From Carl Dombek:

Wonderful, Ned. As a Christian myself, I found Pat's blessing particularly

inspiring.

Carl

*** From Tom Carney:

Ned:

Nicely done. I particularly liked:

“Pray often. Let others pray. Their way.”

Wendy Schneider-Levinson”

I felt a bit of “heaviness” rather than joy, so I reached back 50

years to my dance band days and offer what we said then which was

'have a cool Yule and a frantic first.'

best wishes to all

*** From Susan Burnell, APR:

Thank you and bless you, Ned. (Wonderful that so many participated, Pat's

blessing is still the best.)

With wishes for abundant cheer at Christmas and throughout the year ahead,

Susan

(Susan sent me a picture of her amaryllis. See it at http://www.nedsjotw.com/blog/_archives/2009/12/26/4412846.html.)

*** From Marion Dreyfus:

I am not a Christian, but feel the holiday spirit infusing this time, even in an economic catastrophe now afield. Not to pass the buck, but joyous love and camaraderie, a good solid job and enough income to relax with, health and safety [from our apparently proliferative anti-loving, tormenting enemies], to all.

NYC fan of Ned and JOTW. Bless you guys.

*** From Laurie Mitchell, CPC:

Ned,

Merry Christmas to you and your family, and a special thanks for doing this extra edition which brought me to tears. You continually pay it forward for many generations.

L

May you continue to go from strength to strength, success to success in 2010.

Wishing everyone a new year of full employment and collegiality.

Laurie Mitchell, CPC

*** From Amy Halm:

PAT TRACY ROCKS!!!

Merry Christmas, Ned, and God bless you for what you do!!

Amy

*** From Christy Blackmon:

truly enjoyed Pat Tracy's blessing! Pat was totally on point and I hope someone paid attention! Thanks for sharing Ned! (I enjoy the other blessings as well 🙂 )

Merry Christmas to you and yours and have a blessed New Year!

Be safe, Christie

*** From Molly Walker:

Ned, you're the best. I thank my lucky stars for you. Merry

Christmas!

*** From Audrey Williams:

Ned:

I want to thank you for helping me find a new job this year. I found my current position through this network.

Thank you.

*** From Kim Perz:

it's probably too late to share with everyone,

but my wonderful father used to say “Peace be all over you.”

his variation of the Catholic blessing “Peace be with you.”

🙂

very nice blessings below ~ thank you for reminding me once again of cultural diversity in other regions of my country and the world.

thanks to the readers for sharing!

*** Is this what JOTW is all about?

I very much appreciate your efforts to cement and expand JOTW as a community beyond sharing job leads. Under your stewardship, JOTW has built morale among many down on their luck and likely created some off-line friendships as well. To me, this is what gives JOTW hope and heart.

At the same time, I feel that JOTW is not the best place for sharing exclusionary religious views or political invective. A couple of the messages you chose to include in this space, were in my opinion, inflammatory and offensive. Please re-consider this editorial decision going forward. With 10,000 readers, I don't think this is just about being careful or politically correct. Rather, I think it's about re-examining the mission of JOTW and the implications of having a “pulpit” from which you can instantly reach so many.

JOTW is your brainchild and in many wonderful ways your legacy. It would be a shame to turn it into a forum for divisiveness and commentary bordering on hate speech (the gentleman from Texas).

J

(I do not tell people what to think or what to say. But I do allow a forum

to share. Maybe I need to rethink? – Ned)

You raise an interesting question re: providing a forum for sharing. JOTW is your baby so it's a very personal decision. For what it's worth, my own approach might be to set some parameters, i. e. where are the lines that let you provide a community forum while still maintaining an environment that feels welcoming and hospitable?

I'm not sure that perfect line exists when it comes to religion and politics. JOTW already offers such rich ground in which to debate career search practices, commiserate about experiences, etc. Maybe the other topics are best left for cable programs! It was just a bit jarring to have it “infiltrate” JOTW.

*** The JOTW 2010 Survey:

The next iteration of the JOTW Survey is in the planning stages now. We have some great incentive prizes to encourage subscribers to participate. I am inviting those who want to contribute a prize or a service for the 2010 JOTW Survey to let me know before the end of 2009. When you provide an incentive prize, you will be given the name of the winner of that prize (drawn at random for the survey participants) and you will deliver the prize or service directly to that person. Do not send prizes to me here at the JOTW World Operations Center.

Send your item and description to Ned at lundquist989@cs.com.

When you offer to give prize, you get a paragraph to describe the prize, and yourself if you want, so you can write it off to promotional considerations. The list of prizes will be maintained at www.nedsjotw.com, posted in JOTW and in the JOTW Monday Morning Chasers, and at the JOTW Facebook and LinkedIn group pages.

Here’s what we have so far:

*** Pat Valdata counts for something:

To Ned, who wrote: “As we complete the first decade of the 21st century, communicators have seen dramatic changes over the past few years.”

What was the first year of the decade?

2001

How many years are in a decade?

10

Therefore, what is the last year of the first decade of the 21st century?

2010

Please let’s not revisit the mistakes of Y2K when all the math challenged thought 1999 was the last year of the 20th century. In our system of arithmetic, we start counting at one, not zero. Hence: 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010.

And please let’s all pronounce the new year twenty-ten, not two-thousand and ten.

Pat, channeling Charles Osgood and wishing all a very happy new year!
