JOTW 10-2010

15 March 2010

www.nedsjotw.com

“Television, I would say, isn't an advertising medium. It's a selling medium.”

– William S. Paley

Correction: last week’s JOTW was listed as JOTW 09-2010. It should have been JOTW 10-2010. This issue is correctly listed as JOTW 11-2010.

Welcome to the JOTW network.

This issue comes to you from the Kingdom of Bahrain.

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 11,479 subscribers in this community of communicators.

This is newsletter number 821.

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. 28,040 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.

*** One Paragraph Pitch:

I am Cynthia J. Starks; I write speeches for leaders in business, education and government. I have had my own speechwriting business for some 15 years. Prior to that, I was an executive speechwriter at IBM, United Technologies and Southern New England Telecommunications (SNET). Freelance speechwriting clients have included the president of Pratt & Whitney, the chairman of Deloitte & Touche, the president of Connecticut College, and many IBM and SNET senior executives. I believe a great speech invites an audience to embrace a cause larger than themselves, thereby encouraging them to make a “dent in the universe.” I write a twice-weekly blog on speechwriting at www.starkscommunications.com/blog. I was born and raised in Connecticut, but am now happily living in the Indianapolis area. My clients are nationwide, and I can be reached at 317-344-2394; at cstarks@starkscommunications.com, and on my web site, www.starkscommunications.com. I look forward to providing wonderful speeches that address your business and communications problems.

*** Career Advice Sought from JOTW network:

Dear Ned,

I read the great questions that one of your readers posted. I too would love to get a job with the federal government but after repeatedly sending my resume to various agencies I have not gotten any responses. If you have suggestions and or receive responses, I would love to have them forwarded to me.

Thank you,

Valerie Taylor, M.A., APR

“Be generous with your compliments”

*** From Ken Frager:

Ned,

For your career advice seeker I wanted to give my own observations and experiences on his questions.

I applaud your interest in keeping your resume short and concise…I think that is certainly the best approach. But I also have found that it may not be possible to say what needs to be said on a resume in one page. I have more than 20 years experience in PR and marketing, but I have been in many different jobs and have been responsible for many different types of things. My resume has changed substantially over the years and currently I provide some very specific examples of the types of work that I have done for my last five jobs (equal to 12 years) because they are the most relevant to my career path. I do list the earlier positions, because I think that is important, but without much detail. At the same time, depending on the type of job I was seeking I tailored the resume to align with the job requirement…that is critical.

I am currently a Federal employee, but it did not come easy. In fact I have been focused on USAJobs for more than five years and the position I am currently in wasn't originally posted on USAJobs…it started as a contract position and came to me through some mutual contacts. I actually applied to one position six different times…the position would be postponed or filled by someone with priority status who would then leave the job quickly…and was a finalist five times. The sixth time I never even got through HR for an interview and it was the exact same position! Don't give up on Federal positions, but don't restrict yourself to USAJobs. Different Federal organizations also may be using other job search tools. Relationships are critical in the job market these days, but at the same time, you can't be so aggressive that you become annoying. I use LinkedIn and Facebook for networking, but as you said, nothing beats face-to-face. But don't just show up and say hi, I want to be hired. Attend networking events and don't get so engrossed in one person that you miss someone else. Use the event to meet different people and gain insight into their organizations and needs.

Hope this helps in some way.

Ken

*** From Kevin Nolan:

Ned,

The last JOTW had the following question:

“…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…”

My response: Spend a bit more time on the company’s website. Most companies have a page named “Executive Team,” so look for the VP of communications or marketing or public affairs. Then call the company and ask for that person. You could also call the main number and ask to speak to whoever has that role. Spend a few minutes on the phone first. But visiting the company in person with no appointment is a bad idea. Just a few hours ago, someone walked into an office building here in Dallas and killed people in cold blood. You want to be a problem solver, not a stalker.

Thanks

Kevin Nolan

*** This has been a busy week for the Lundquist Family. We enjoyed a vacation at the Marriott Ko Olina Beach Club Resort, and did the kinds of things that tourists do when they come to Hawaii, like go on a whale watch cruise – yes we saw humpbacks and spinner dolphins and flying fish – and visit the Arizona Memorial and go to the Ploynesian Cultural Center; and the things that kamaaina do because they live here (Laura was born and raised in Hawaii), like eat hot malasadas from Leonard’s Bakery, or manapua from Ho Ho Chinese Cuisine.

Our Delta flight to Atlanta on the return was delayed three hours. We had a tight transfer as it was – 50 minutes – for our connection to DCA. When we arrived we raced all the way from the far end of the E concourse to the other end of the A concourse of the world’s busiest airport. The next flight to DC was at 11:20 and we knew we wouldn’t get on. We were “rebooked” on a 4:20 flight, and I had to get home and turn around and head out again for a flight to Kuwait at 10:15 that evening.

We were on the standby list…in fact, we were number one on the standby list of 78 names. Yes we got on, along with an Army 0-5 coming home from Afghanistan for a week with his family. He got a seat in first class.

*** 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.

This is an agency where you can rise fast, have high visibility, help build their U.S. operation, and be well-compensated.

The Account Supervisor should be able to understand client business issues at a business level and be capable of providing executive level counsel to senior client executives.

Your experience and judgment must be mature enough to work with less direct supervision, while proactively seeking agency executive input when warranted

*Developing and managing communications tactics for drug approvals, clinical trial recruitment, third-party communications, drug launches, etc.

*Strong organizational and project management skills.

*Proven writing, planning and traditional / social media execution.

As you can tell, our client has given a lot of thought into what they want in this individual and how they will help grow their career. This is your chance to join an independent, entrepreneurial, profitable global communications firm. Reports to Vice President and Managing Supervisor and you will manage three people when you start. People are vivacious, outgoing and like to talk.

Ideally looking for a Senior Account Executive who is ready to be promoted to an Account Supervisor or someone who recently became an Account Supervisor. Might be an excellent opportunity for someone looking to move from the pressures of a big pr agency environment to a friendly smaller pr agency.

Salary $70K-$85K plus very good benefits including medical, 401K with match, 3 weeks vacation plus holidays.

Local candidates only will be considered for this position.

To be considered for this position, and other opportunities in public relations, communications and investor relations, e-mail your resume and cover letter (which should include your current base salary and any bonuses) to:
