“You cannot build character and courage by taking away man's initiative and independence.”

– Abraham Lincoln

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.

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 11,375 subscribers in this community of communicators.

This is newsletter number 813.

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. 27,463 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.

*** JOTW Teammate Launches CommScrum: Full Contact Internal Communications

I’m pleased to announce that a key member of the JOTW team, Mike Klein, my Belgium-based Research Guru, has joined up with three of Europe’s top internal communication pros to launch a new online publishing effort called CommScrum-Full Contact Internal Communication.

Mike and his fellow CommScrummers (Dan Gray, Kevin Keohane, and Lindsay Uittenbogaard) want to offer something a bit more hard-hitting than what’s been offered by the mainstream comms press, and the current edition, “GameChange: Will ‘Employee Communication’ Stomp ‘Internal Communication’ “hits its subject right between the eyes.

CommScrum can be found at http://CommScrum.wordpress.com, and the CommScrummers are aiming to get at least two full posts out per month.

Commscrum is one of a number of projects that Mike is involved with, at the moment, along with supporting me on the JOTW Survey. He’s got a new site up at Mike Klein—The Intersection (http://intersectionblog.wordpress.com), with links to some interesting articles he’s been writing about employee engagement. He's also currently on the look out for new projects, partners and positions, and is working on a new project that JOTW will be co-sponsoring soon. Stay tuned!

*** Executive Accreditation Seminar (EAS):

The Executive Accreditation Seminar (EAS) at Royal Roads University in Victoria, British Columbia is an intensive six-day seminar designed for senior-level communicators who wish to achieve the Accredited Business Communicator (ABC) credential, the global standard in organizational communication. Offered 21–26 March 2010, the seminar combines an elegant and efficient pathway to accreditation with a leadership development curriculum that recognizes the experience, responsibilities and strategic intelligence of the senior-level practitioner. Assuming successful completion of the pre-work assignment and the various rigorous elements of the accreditation process offered during the seminar, the candidate will qualify for receiving the ABC after the six-day experience.

The seminar results from a partnership between the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) and Royal Roads University (RRU), a public university specializing in professional education. The seminar models a sophisticated approach to the ABC through a dynamic and peer-interactive experience designed for the seasoned practitioner. The seminar will be led by two ABCs with deep experience in academic communication scholarship and professional practice, as well as a veteran leadership instructor. Successful candidates also receive a certificate of completion from Royal Roads University.

IABC’s professional credential program recognizing communicators who have reached a globally accepted standard of knowledge and proficiency in their chosen field. Candidates meeting the requirements of the program earn the designation Accredited Business Communicator (ABC).

26.) Communications Manager, Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP), Washington, DC

The Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP) seeks a communications manager. CLASP is a 40-year-old non-profit that advocates for policy solutions that work for low-income people. The organization works on a range of policy issues, including child care and early education, child welfre, postsecondary education, employment strategies for low-income populations, youth, work supports, civil legal assistance and other related policy solutions aimed at giving low-income people tools and opportunity to move out of poverty.

The successful candidate will have three to seven years of communications experience and demonstrate an avid interest in policy issues that affect low-income people and their families. This position reports to the communications director and is ideal for a self-starter who has a broad knowledge of how communications can advance an organization’s policy agenda and is interested in helping to expand an organization’s communications efforts. The successful candidate will be an excellent writer and editor. He or she will not only be able to edit wonky papers and reports for a policy audience but also will be able to translate complex policy language into prose that is easily accessible for a wide variety of audiences. The candidate also will have broad communications experience, including media relations, and, ideally, experience using new media tools.

The communications manager’s responsibilities include but are not limited to the following:

• Editing: Edit CLASP publications and ensure all publications adhere to the internal style guide as well as other designated style manuals.

• Media Relations: Enhance CLASP’s media coverage by helping to develop media strategies around various CLASP projects, writing and/or editing news releases, letters to the editor and other media materials, establishing relationships with key reporters who cover poverty and other CLASP-related issues, pitch story ideas to news reporters.

• Communications: Proactively make suggestions when CLASP policy staff work warrants a broader communications strategy (including but not limited to electronic communications, media relations, using new media technologies, etc.) and work with the communications director to develop and implement that strategy.

• Website Upkeep: Help to maintain the clasp.org website, including posting and removing content, and offering ideas for how the website can better be used to communicate to various audiences.

• Writing: In addition to writing for a media audience, write content for the clasp.org site as well as other materials as assigned by the communications director.

Additional qualifications: Applicants should have three to seven years of experience in communications or in a related field such as journalism or public policy. Candidates should have an interest in CLASP-related issues as demonstrated by their prior experience or explained in their cover letter.

Salary: Salary is commensurate with experience. CLASP offers exceptional benefits, including several health insurance options, dental insurance, life and long-term disability insurance, long term care insurance, a 403(b) retirement program, flexible spending accounts and generous vacation, sick leave, and holiday schedules.
