“Ambition leads me not only farther than any other man has been before me, but as far as I think it possible for man to go.”

– James Cook

Welcome to the JOTW network.

This issue comes to you from the Sandwich Islands (from the leeward side of Oahu).

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, or as we call it, “nedworking.” JOTW is a cooperative service. That means JOTW 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. So, ask yourself, when was the last time I contributed something to share with me fellow nedworkers?

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 11,463 subscribers in this community of communicators.

This is newsletter number 820.

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. 27,984 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.

*** Career Advice Sought from JOTW network:

Mr. Lundquist, I have a couple of questions for you and the team this week:

For starters, I’ve never felt comfortable with a standard one-page resume format which I feel illustrates all the bends and turns in my career…After doing some searching, I saw some templates for making an “International CV”, which is of course longer and more detailed, but I feel fits my needs better…Do you think this is worth doing instead? Do H.R. flaks bother to read CVs when they are throwing away so many one-page resumes??

Also, I still haven’t given up on finding a job with the federal government (usajobs.com), but I’ve been applying to them for seven years now, and only made it past the first cut once – Is it still worth shooting for? Or are there simply way too many applicants for these jobs??

I’ve also been re-reading “What Color is Your Parachute” and one of the tactics the author swears by to get hired is person-to-person contact, (by phone or in person) instead of e-mailing a resume/online applications, since the best jobs usually aren’t advertised and most e-mailed resumes ignored…How effective do you think this strategy is? Most of the H.R. departments I’ve called just refer me to their jobs website and end the call – Would showing up in person work better? I ask because there are some specific corporations I want to seek out in other cities, and should I go there? I didn’t want to be turned away at the front desk…

Help Please

*** Some Survey feedback:

JOTW is the BEST. I will always read it, whether I'm looking or not!

Outstanding for leads and entertainment.

It provides a very unique variety of potential positions and additional information that I don't think could be found anywhere else. Wed, Feb 10, 2010 4:43 PM

It would be helpful to localize.

I just found out about the email recently. I had no idea there were so many other offerings.

I share this newsletter with everyone who asks me about jobs. And, if I ever get to post a job, I'm coming to Ned!

I wish the newsletter was easier to read vs. all text.

A fun, useful, supportive community.

I appreciate Ned providing the JOTW newsletter. I got my last full-time job through it.

I've been a JOTW member/reader since the earliest days, and while it has expanded to the point that some of its diverse offerings are no longer relevant to me, the core resources are still top-notch.

Simply in terms of the email newsletter, it's difficult to read layout-wise. Perhaps consider an easier-to-read format? Wed, Feb 10, 2010 10:54 AM Find…

JOTW is wonderful! I have learned about many great jobs and know one of them will hit. Thank you for given me an opportunity to take the world by storm and its free! 🙂 But more importantly it gives me a place to find a voice.

Stop the silliness of much commentary and get serious. I would never share JOTW with a non-communicator

*** What do you think communicators should do in the coming decade to change the world? (These are just a few of the 287 thought provoking responses.)

Consistently tell the truth and serve as a two-way link between organizations and their publics.

Commit to ethical standards in communication that result in reduced consumption, increased public engagement in global & environmental issues, and improved integrity of corporate entities.

Be honest. If claiming to do journalism, do real journalism not advocacy. If doing advocacy, be honest about content and about what you are doing.

Participate in small “d” democracy.

Help organizations to see the value in their employees and really catering more to them. I think they cater for the “fluff” effect not really to change behavior and quality of output. If companies really demonstrated they valued the employee, I think companies could prosper more. Communicators can make this transaction occur!

Encourage, no, demand authenticity, honesty, integrity, compassion and collaboration.

Work together to abolish “text speak,” like LOL, ROTFLMAO, etc. Professionals should be demoted for using these terms, even on cell phones. Also, we should promote ways to more effectively using e-mail subject lines. With inboxes filled to the brim, the 15th “reply all” to a message should have the 15th new subject line. (Ned’s comment: WTF?)

Stop selling social media snake oil.

Tell the truth. Be an advocate for employees. Not be snarky. Protect the English language. And remember that the USA is no longer the center of the Universe.

Stop whining.

*** From Michelle Vanderhoff:

I am conducting a survey as part of my Master’s thesis in Communication from Johns Hopkins University. I am researching employee and internal communicators preferences for using certain types of media in their workplace, as well as overall communication satisfaction.

This study will be comprised of a Web-based survey of all employees and all internal communicators in a Washington, DC-area company that has at least 200 employees. The organization must possess full-time internal communications staff and currently use the following vehicles to communicate with employees: social networks, e-mail, Intranet, and company Web site.

The results of this research may help researchers and internal communications professionals better understand the reasons why employees use certain types of media, so your participation would be very helpful.

If your company fits these criteria and is interested in participating, please contact Michelle Vanderhoff at michelle.vanderhoff@gmail.com.

Thank you!

2.) COMMUNICATIONS MANAGER, STANDARD & POOR’S – STRUCTURED FINANCE, NY, NY

With offices in 23 countries and a history that dates back nearly 150 years, Standard & Poor's is known to investors worldwide as a leader of financial- market intelligence. Today Standard & Poor's strives to provide investors who want to make better informed investment decisions with market intelligence in the form of credit ratings, indices, investment research and risk evaluations and solutions.

Most notably, we are known as an independent provider of credit ratings. A credit rating is Standard & Poor's opinion on the general creditworthiness of an obligor, or the creditworthiness of an obligor with respect to a particular debt security or other financial obligation. Over the years credit ratings have achieved wide investor acceptance as convenient tools for differentiating credit quality.

Standard & Poor's is seeking a Communications Manager to support the Structured Finance Ratings business. The communications manager will be responsible for developing and coordinating media and other communication strategies to promote the capabilities of the Structured Finance business.

Standard & Poor's Structure Finance is one of several financial sectors for which Standard & Poor's provides its credit ratings services. Slightly different, and more complex than the ratings it provides for other sectors, analysts who specialize in rating structured financial instruments closely evaluate, among other things, the potential risks posed by the instrument's legal structure and the credit quality of the assets held by the Special Purpose Entity (SPE). Standard & Poor's analysts also consider the anticipated cash flow of the underlying assets and any credit enhancements that could provide protection against default.

Essential Accountabilities include but are not limited to the following:

• Write and edit press releases

• Maintain and upgrade trade and regional/national media contact data base

• Work closely with senior colleagues to identify media opportunities;

• Assist in promoting significant S&P activities to media contacts

• Maintain extensive contact with specialized and trade press, general financial press and broadcast media;

• Organize public relations events and coordinate these activities with the business practice leaders and S&P's global communications team;

• Develop communications material to support business unit, including press releases, talking points, presentation material, and FAQs.

Qualifications include but are not limited to the following:

• Bachelor's degree required; advanced degree preferred.

• Strong knowledge of the Capital Markets; fixed-income and structured finance is required;

• Significant work experience in Media Relations, Journalism and/or Public Relations; experience, preferably in the area of financial services;

• Outstanding verbal and written communication skills;

• Outstanding organizational skills

• Proven track record of success in building work relationships;

• The ability and the desire to work in a deadline driven environment is required;

• Permanent work authorization for the United States is required.
