“It is one of the commonest of mistakes to consider that the limit of our power of perception is also the limit of all there is to perceive.”

– C. W. Leadbeater

This issue of your JOTW newsletter was prepared during my week in Korea, and sent to you upon my return home to the JOTW Global Command Center from the “Land of the Morning calm.”

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 11,439 subscribers in this community of communicators.

This is newsletter number 816.

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. 27,696 to be exact, as of this morning.

In the “Did they really do that” category comes this bit of not so subtle word play from Spirit Airlines. Furthering its middle school boy locker room sense of humor, the airline follows its MILF-themed “Many Islands, Low Fare” witticism with “Many Unbelievably Fantastic Fares”

*** My wakeup call came while I was in the shower. I had been up, and already on the second mini-pot of coffee. We were told to be in the lobby by 6, and I was a few minutes early. The restaurant didn’t open until 6:30, so I wasn’t expecting it. But were told to go eat as they had the café open and that seemed to be typical of how this hotel was trying their best to accommodate all of us. This Radisson is owned by a Korean, and KAL flight crews stay their on layovers. For dinner the night before we had a $15 voucher ($20 for business class) which was enough for a nice dinner in Ming’s, the restaurant. As we waited for the shuttle buses, one of the hotel employees who spoke Korean told the passengers they were free to call anyone by phone, no charge. Everyone was orderly, and there were virtually no complaints.

Going though screening at O’Hare I saw someone with a bottle of Johnny Walker Black that they had picked up at Duty Free at Incheon. They didn’t pack it on our layover, and so it went into the TSA bin with the bottles of water and Nivea lotion.

I also noted on the departures board that ANA had a flight to Washington Dulles, which means they had to divert here, too.

Once you go though security screening at the O’Hare Intl. terminal you cannot buy a cup of hot coffee.
