“The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without work.”

– Emile Zola

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 11,484 subscribers in this community of communicators.

This is newsletter number 825.

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. 28,397 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.

*** About the March 32nd issue:

My dear Ned,

Thank you for the annual reminder of April Fool's Day (or March 32, in JOTW parlance). You and Mike did an admirable job. I have decided to apply for the position at the Butt-Dialing organization, having repeatedly been a victim of the scourge.

The absolute best part of the newsletter was the multi-lingual rejoinder about the environment at the end of the missive. However, I'm sure you meant to write “Ne wanque pas” (Don't be a wank) rather than “Je ne wanque pas” (I do not wank, or I am not a wank). Then again, what the f#@! do I know?

Kind regards,

Connie J Mayse

*** From Kathleen DesRosiers:

Ok, Ned, I rarely (read never) weigh in with a comment, though I truly appreciate JOTW. But this one made me laugh out loud. Thanks for making me laugh at the end of a busy day in Beijing.

Kudos to you and Mike!

Kind regards,

Kathleen

*** From Kathy Pecka:

Ned,

I laughed. I cried. I laughed some more. But you let one real job listing sneak in there: Vice President of Jargon, Washington, DC. I used to have that job.

Thanks for another great way to kick off April,

Kathy

*** Ned –

This is the BEST April Fool's stunt I've seen in a long, long time!! Thanks for reeling me in. I read the intro and thought you were being your usual crusty self. It wasn't until I read Job #3 about Butt-Dialing that it dawned on me.

Thanks again for MAKING my day!

Best regards,

Carolyn

Carolyn Valek

*** You will never have to go into a wit-less protection program, Ned. You've

outdone your clever self. My sides ache from laughter and my neck is sore

from tilting to read the emoticons %-). But I am smiling through the pain!

Cheers and happy April Fool's Day!

*** From Heather Murphy:

Ned,

I'm placing some faith in the idea that 105 solid communications opportunities, with one alternative, may indicate that things are improving for communicators everywhere. I think it's time for a campaign to get you more than 12,000 subscribers! I'm planning to do my part next week when I speak to a group of ASU Cronkite School of Journalism students. I'm planning to tell them to subscribe so they can study the job descriptions and acquire the skills necessary for success.

So, everyone…reach out to your networks to see if you can make JOTW 12,000 strong! Every new subscriber is a potential contributor of openings and opportunities…or anecdotes and oddities! It's all good.

Heather Murphy

(Heather, the number of jobs posted in JOTW is largely a function of how much time I have to work on it, as well as how many jobs are submitted by members of the network. My dog, Scout, says that you can tell how well the job market is doing by how many times a week the FedEx and UPS guys come to the house to bring a t-shirt, ball cap or coffee mug. Used to be two or three times a week, sometimes more. Now we may go a couple of months between deliveries.)
