“New Year's Resolution: To tolerate fools more gladly, provided this does not encourage them to take up more of my time.”

— James Agate

Here we go for another year and your connection with this network. That connection requires your involvement and participation. This is 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. We connect you with others who are like you, and together we help each other. What a concept.

Will JOTW get you a new job in this new year? Maybe. What is certain is the fact that some of you will have a life-changing experience because of this newsletter and this network. We just don’t know who it will be, but it might be you. Or you might contribute the opportunity that change everything for someone else. Who knows?

How does it work? First of all, it doesn't cost you a cent. 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 11,342 subscribers in this community of communicators.

This is newsletter number 811.

This network is all about connecting communicators and sharing opportunities. And speaking of sharing, since the JOTW newsletter was started, more than 25,000 job opportunities have been listed and shared with members of this network. 27,349 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.

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.

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

*** 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.
