“Whenever I climb I am followed by a dog called 'Ego'.”

– Friedrich Nietzsche

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 11,518 subscribers in this community of communicators.

This is newsletter number 828.

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. 28,648 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.

*** Posting jobs:

Hello Ned,

I understand that you post communications jobs on your weekly newsletter. Is there a fee for employers associated with this service?

JR

(I publish JOTW and DEFCON 1 as a free service. It's free to post a listing

in one or both of my jobs newsletters. If you are a defense company looking for

communicators, you should post jobs in both. The newsletters come out once a

week, and are then posted to my websites.

To blast a job right away to all 11,000+ communication professionals who

get JOTW or the 770 people who get the defense newsletter, I offer a “Can't

Wait” listing for a nominal fee. This is the best way to get your jobs seen,

and to generate quality leads.

A “Can't Wait” posting to the JOTW network is $300, and DEFCON 1 is $200.

You can send to both for $400. Your listing will still appear in the weekly

newsletter.)

*** Can’t Wait to get paid:

I want to personally thank you for taking the time to make what must surely be a labor intensive undertaking. While I am currently in role, I always like to see what's available for me and for friends who have not been so fortunate to maintain employment.

I do wonder whether you've opened 'Pandora's box' with your offer to post 'can't wait' job opportunities–that's added stress for you. Just had to mention it, as I feel you're too kind and generous w/your time–one week shouldn't make that much difference between postings. Just my two cents.

CG

(“Can’t Wait” postings earn me some spending money. And they really get results for those who use the service. )

*** From Samantha Donaldson:

Good morning Ned,

I am getting in touch from the nonprofit Partnership for Public Service with an exciting jobs event that I hope you will consider sharing with the JOTW network.

Many thanks for your consideration and please let me know if you have any questions.

All the best,

Company Background

The USO is a private, nonprofit organization whose mission is to support the troops by providing morale, welfare and recreation-type services to our men and women in uniform. The original intent of Congress — and enduring style of USO delivery — is to represent the American people by extending a touch of home to the military. Refer to www.uso.org for more details.

The USO currently operates more than 135 centers worldwide, including ten mobile canteens located in the continental United States and overseas. Overseas centers are located in Germany, Italy, the United Arab Emirates, Japan, Qatar, Korea, Iraq, Afghanistan, Guam and Kuwait.

Service members and their families visit USO centers more than 6.9 million times each year. The USO is the way the American public supports the troops.

The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have provided a wartime environment for the USO; these are similar to the conditions that existed during World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War. The Southwest Asia (SWA) Region has been the top priority of the USO since the beginning of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Millions of dollars have been dedicated to focusing on improving the USO’s operations with an emphasis on the service members in that theater as well as wounded troops.

The Role

The Senior Vice President of Communications & Marketing (SVP, CM) orchestrates the “stories of the USO” that center on compelling, emotional stories about the soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines who serve our nation. The power of these stories allow the USO, as an intermediary, to get assistance from Congress, corporations and the American people and provide that assistance back to its “customers”: U.S. troops and their families.

Specific Duties and Key Responsibilities

• “Create a global marketing machine.”

• Capture the stories, in multimedia formats, to create a powerful rationale to donate to the USO.

• Proactively gain entrance to the media worlds to increase stakeholder awareness and understanding of the USO.

• Ensure that USO communications are consistent with its actions.

• Establish/develop a culture of communications throughout the USO and an array of tailored communications to specific audiences.

• Lead and oversee the current in-house Communications and Marketing team; hire as required.

Job Requirements

• This senior, critical role demands an A player. Two types of people could become the next SVP:

o Currently employed as a VP or SVP of Communications or Marketing, in a large, global organization. Responsible for communications strategy and execution, marketing (research and results reporting), public relations, and “capturing the critical stories” about customers and the organization’s services.

o Currently or recently serving as an executive with significant responsibilities in federal government (e.g., DoD) or providing services to the federal government—a senior officer with a large span of responsibilities. A brilliant program executive.

• Superior program management capabilities; able to lay it all out, make complex decisions—with lots of peer dialogues—that end in the execution of projects superbly and on time.

• Great expertise communication with a diverse set of customers, and orchestrating teams of employees and vendors.

• Expertise making major changes in a complex organization.

• Exceptional personal expertise speaking, writing and summarizing key messages.

• Strong expertise working inside an organization to capture the critical stories that can be used for development or “sales.”

Critical Competencies

• Strong emotional and social intelligence

• Impeccable integrity, trustworthiness, respect

• Political/interpersonal savvy with peers, teams

• Managing vision, purpose through systems

• Process management

• Action oriented, drive for results

• Dealing with cultural change, ambiguity

• Creativity, innovation

• Motivating others, strong team building

• Perspective

• Setting priorities

• Problem solving

• Strategic agility

• Sizing up people, hiring

The most successful person will have at least 15 years of experience as a senior executive in a complex, global organization (or a communications/marketing executive). The most successful candidate will have a deep background executing programs with diverse team, and ideally, in capturing the essence of an organization, and translating those points into images/verbiage that play well in the media and, in turn, with key constituents including the American people.

Compensation: The base cash compensation, and cash bonus, will be carefully determined to be very competitive in the Northern Virginia area.

The due diligence during this hiring process will be extensive. This role is key and essential, and so we want to ensure that the finalist candidates align with the current teams (values, behaviors, emotions).
