This newsletter was assembled in Kuwait, Bahrain and Iraq, and at 33,000 feet over the Atlantic, and will be sent to you as soon as I arrive in the U.S. Your newsletter may be received with a slight delay.

Welcome to the JOTW network.

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 my fellow nedworkers?”

How does it work? 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. Your friends can sign up by sending a blank e-mail to JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.

You are among 11,474 subscribers in this community of communicators.

This is newsletter number 822.

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. 28,106 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.

*** From Larry Bearfield regarding one of the comments posted last week:

Nice response on your survey Brother…. but I feel compelled to respond to one of the comments you received:

Stop the silliness of much commentary and get serious. I would never

share JOTW with a non-communicator

I disagree with this reader Ned, when you stop the “silliness” JOTW will lose it's personality and become just another plain vanilla newsletter. One person's silliness is another's fodder. Besides, why on earth would a non-communicator be interested in jobs in communications?? Lighten up reader!

Larry

*** Some JOTW 2010 Survey comments:

62. Heavily east-coast focused…few west coast listings.

63. Love it. .

64. Good listings, like the easy style.

65. THE single best resource for communications jobs!

66. Many thanks to Ned for his tireless and selfless service to the community.

67. Enjoy reading the job openings

68. Extremely valuable and always amusing newsletter for Communicators, PR and other professionals.

69. It is a very good program.

70. Would be nice to see more executive communications positions in JOTW; perhaps a separate newsletter

for senior communicators?

71. GREAT service, amazing compilation of career opportunities

72. When I was out of work, I look forward to Monday mornings and the hope that JOTW brought with it. I am eternally grateful that this wonderful service exists and hope to one day be able to use it to source talent as well.

73. Too many irrelevant, impossible jobs, esp/ international ones; too many ancillary and irrelevant paragraphs to scroll through; not enough separation between jobs that seem to run together

74. I think it is a great e-newsletter.

75. Great emails but extremely text heavy – make a space or two between entries?

77. Love it! love the wide variety, and really think you should charge for it

78. Wonderful info. Wonderful service to the profession!

79. It is interesting, curious, useful

80. It's a fabulous resource!

81. I admire and thank Ned for taking on the task of listing jobs for communicators. While I have not landed one of the jobs I've applied for from JOTW, just having the listing THERE has been a source of solace and encouragement for me. THANK YOU, NED!

82. JOTW is a valuable resource that can connect you to jobs not advertised (or understood) by anyone else!

83. In the 10 years I have subscribed to JOTW, I have found it to be a very rich environment for those seeking employment and for those employers seeking highly qualified, talented professional communicators.

84. I appreciate the work Ned does to assist communicators with career searches. It is an excellent resource that lists positions that are not available elsewhere. Thank you!

85. I really, really, really dislike the format of JOTW, it is so hard to read – please improve it!!!!!!!!

86. It's a perfect example of how the Internet can bring people together — simply and inexpensively — in ways that were previously not just impossible but unimaginable.

87. This is an excellent resource, and Ned is to be commended for the work he puts into it. The fact I'm not using it more often says more about me than it does JOTW. I haven't NEEDED to find a job, or an employee. I really do think I should explore some of the social networking possibilities of the site.

88. I was unemployed for 6 months in 2007, worked for 6 months and was then unemployed for 17 months in 2008 & 2009. During that time I read JOTW every week and applied to jobs through it. It needs to be better organized by category or at least location, so you don't have to read through the entire listing.

89. love the community, style and frequency

90. JOTW provides information you can use. (And where else would one go to track piracy?)

91. JOTW encourages me to imagine going someplace new and doing something different.

93. I always recommend it to job hunters and communications students close to graduation.

95. as a job seeker, i rely heavily on jotw for job leads. they haven't led to an interview yet, but i continue to hold hope something will turn around for this senior level communicator.

96. Great features, funny stuff

97. It's a great resource. Just wish there was a anchor line from short listings at top.

98. Love it just the way it is.

99. JOTW = Communications Community

100. very useful product

*** Here are some survey responses to this question: 20. What do you think communicators should do in the coming decade to change the world?

51. 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.

52. Become and remain highly digitally literate and techno-savvy. Base communications on solid research that shows which messages really work.

58. Concentrate on social responsibility, integrity and trust

59. Stop worrying about changing the world and start focusing on making this a management function infused with more rigorous research and data-driven recommendations.

63. Sort out which forms of communications are relevant and effective vs. which just clog people's lives

64. Press for truth, nuance and rational discourse in the national conversation.

65. Strengthen network reltionships by concentrating on a few effective means. The current plethora of choices is distracting and divisive.

66. Understand the significance of measurement and public engagement.

69. Be relevant! Understand the business that you are communicating about and pay more than lip service to understanding your employer, your client, their stakeholders.

70. First, continue to courageously and boldly counsel clients to be transparent, and in real-time honestly communicate with key stakeholders during a crisis. Second, continue to be vigourous in due diligence when researching a client's supply chain, and counsel them wisely when elements in the supply chain are not in alignment with their brands/corp core values.

*** Stated clearly:

This is always a great list….is there any way to sort by state? ( just curious)

CM

*** Make JOTW easier for me:

Hi Ned:

Is it possible to sort your job list by city?

Thanks,

Bonnie

(I put JOTW together as the jobs come in. I do not group them geographically on purpose, because I want to show that the network has jobs from all over, not just a concentration in one area.)

23.) Account Executive, Chicago, Illinois

Organization Profile

Public Communications Inc. (PCI) (www.pcipr.com) is widely recognized for providing

results-oriented, measurable public relations and marketing services.

Our firm is large enough to provide all the communications services a

client might require, yet small enough to permit the firm's principals

to be directly involved in each client's program. We take pride in our

reputation for delivering creative, well-executed programs that exceed

our clients' expectations, and that are delivered on time and within

budget.

PCI is a mid-sized, woman-owned public relations firm, with a broad

national, international and Chicago practice and a strong track record

in strategic communications counseling. We have grown through long-term

client relationships and referrals.

Founded in 1963, PCI is consistently ranked (by fee income) among the

largest independent (non-advertising agency owned) firms in the United

States. We are among the 10 largest Women's Business Enterprise (WBE)

certified public relations agencies in the United States.

PCI is a founding partner of The Worldcom Public Relations Group, the

largest partnership of independent public relations firms in the world,

with firms in more than 100 markets on six continents. This partnership

provides local market intelligence and resources to PCI for virtually

any assignment.

We enjoy an eclectic business, representing everything from health care

systems to zoos, major corporations to small nonprofit service

organizations and are fortunate in maintaining long relationships with

our clients – 15+ year relationships are very common. If we were to list

the three aspects of PCI that, we believe, secure those long-term

relationships, they would be:

* Creativity. We are idea people – people who can create cutaway

programs and provide solutions when an issue is involved.

* Service. This is our hallmark. Our bottom line is results, not

billings, and, as a result, we have prospered on the recommendations and

referrals from satisfied clients.

* High standards. We set our sights high when it comes to the

quality of our work and staff.

32.) HDNCE Communications Short-Term Consultant, Human Development Chief Economist’s Office (HDNCE), World Bank, Washington, DC

Background

The HD Chief Economist’s Office (HDNCE) seeks to improve human development outcomes by providing leadership and contributing to strategy, knowledge creation, dissemination and capacity building among staff and clients. A recent survey of HD Economists in the Bank underscored the need for a more active internal and external approach to communications. While staff across the Bank indicated an interest in the analytical tools, services and outputs produced by the unit, there is a lack of awareness about what resources exist and how to access them. Country Office staff in particular expressed a strong interest in greater outreach and accessibility of materials.

HDNCE manages two main work programs which are generating knowledge and resources for Bank staff, clients and other partners. First, the program on Impact Evaluations in the Human Development Sectors supported by the Spanish Impact Evaluation Trust Fund (SIEF) involves an active pipeline of impact evaluations across regions and HD sectors. A first wave of evaluations supported by is beginning to generate results, so there is a need to begin an active dissemination of findings that can channel the findings into the Bank’s operational work and policy dialogue with clients.

Second, the Knowledge and Learning (K&L) program on Governance in the Human Development Sectors builds on sector strategy work underway within the HD sub-sectors, as well as work supported through the Bank-wide Governance and Anti-Corruption (GAC) strategy. This program is developing tools and instruments for measuring governance in the HD sectors; and increased awareness of what is being done across the Bank and what works operationally to improve sector governance. The Governance program is also beginning to generate a first round of tools and information that need to be communicated to staff and other partners.

Scope of Work

The objective of this assignment is to provide on-going communications support to the HDNCE team. The assignment will involve designing and implementing an internal and external strategy for communication of knowledge, tools, and events. The Consultant would work closely with the HDNCE team and coordinate with the HDNOP Communications team.

The work of the Consultant will include:

• Drafting a concrete and operational internal and external communications work plan for HDNCE including design of dissemination products (policy notes, improved use of website for dissemination); defining team responsibilities; and setting dates. The plan would also include a proposal for monitoring the effectiveness of the communications work – e.g. by monitoring web use, conducting a follow-up to the HDE survey and other feedback mechanisms;

• Developing and writing a series of policy notes for disseminating the outputs of each SIEF Impact Evaluation;

• Developing and writing an HD Economics Dissemination Note Series (modeled on PREM NOTES), for disseminating innovative and high quality HDNCE and HD Network AAA and Projects (estimated 1 or 2 per month);

• Contributions to regular HDN dissemination instruments, including HD Matters (at least one story from HDNCE for each edition), “Today” and Intranet Stories, and other HDN Newsletters;

• Coordinating with the HDNCE Web Consultant to improve dissemination and use of the website, including posting of policy notes and news items, video of HDNCE events and other innovative use of multi-media;

• Supporting the HDNCE team on the planning of events for outreach, including the Chief Economist’s BBL series and other dissemination events in Washington and the field.

Qualifications

 Knowledge of and practical experience in a full range of communications approaches, tools, and methodologies essential to planning, executing, and monitoring communications strategies – e.g., campaign management, media operations, social marketing, opinion research, audience outreach, message targeting, and so on. Ability to plan and successfully implement a comprehensive communications program in support of defined objectives.

 Proven planning and organizational skills. Strong conceptual and research/analytical skills, with the ability to think strategically and rapidly respond with authoritative recommendations.

 Excellent oral, and written communications, and presentational skills. Spoken and written fluency required in English. Proficiency in another language a plus.

 Strong computer skills; ability to use standard Bank technology, e.g., Word, Lotus Notes, PowerPoint, Internet, Excel, etc. Experience writing, editing, and producing for the Web (basic knowledge of HTML and other multimedia abilities) desirable.

 Effective interpersonal skills; demonstrated political awareness and diplomacy in managing sensitive issues with key audiences and the ability to work effectively with internal/external partners in a multicultural environment.

 Adroit understanding of the Human Development Network and the issues inherent in its work, its policies and operations; up-to-date knowledge of current development topics and issues, and ability to identify communications-related risks and opportunities in an international environment

 Minimum Education: BA (Communications, International Relations/Public Affairs, Journalism, Marketing, Political Science, or other related field.)

 Minimum Years of Relevant Experience: BA degree and a minimum of several years' relevant experience in one or more professional disciplines.
