“One of the advantages of being disorderly is that one is constantly making exciting discoveries.”

– A. A. Milne

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 11,538 subscribers in this community of communicators.

This is newsletter number 829.

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. 28,748 to be exact, as of this morning.

Businesses, now more than ever, need to communicate well with customers, the public, government and peers. I have more than 20 years’ experience in corporate communications with particular expertise in the energy industry. I've supervised multiple functions — internal, media, executive support, investor relations, crisis situations, etc. I believe I can add immediately to your communications program.

*** Freelance Forecast:

Hi Ned:

I hope all's well on the East Coast…getting kinda toasty here in AZ!

Wanted to let you know that I've uploaded the results of Freelance

Forecast 2010 to http://DearDrFreelance.com, so people are free to

download, tweet, distribute, etc. You were kind enough to mention it

in JOTW in December, and there were quite a few respondents from your

effort–thank you again!

Best regards,

Jake Poinier

(What surprise results did you find?)

I guess the shocker for me was that more than 50 percent of the

respondents didn't contribute to any retirement plan last year.

On a more positive note, it was interesting to see that social media

rated reasonably high as a way to acquire clients–equal to cold-

calling in 5th place. And clients ranked social media 4th as a way to

find freelance talent. It'll be interesting to see if that trends up

next year.

It was the first time I asked about what type of estimates clients prefer, and “firm quote” and “not-to-exceed” price were the runaway winners. Maybe not a surprise, but reinforcement!

Thanks again, Ned!

Jake

*** A bold request:

Hello Ned,

First, I want to say thanks for doing a good job trying to keep us all employed. 🙂 Seriously, you do a great job.

I wanted to know if it is possible to make the header (job title) of each job description bold so it is easier to read in email. I find it tough read as it is now.

Thank you,

Sika Dunyoh

(I don't know. Maybe if I send as an HTML doc. I'll try it as an experiment. It's more work for me, and I try to keep things simple.)

*** What Conan O'Brien can teach employers about engagement:

Late-night comedian Conan O'Brien's departure from NBC to TBS is a good example of what might begin to happen with other top talent as the economy improves — they leave their companies because they don't feel engaged and appreciated, Alan Mellish writes. “While most of us may not have to face a choice with ramifications as public as NBC, it is important to make the choice that will engage and invigorate your top talent,” he writes. www.HCI.org.

3. Managing Directors of OgilvyOne’s sister companies Advertising, PR, Promotions and the group’s Head of Country

4. Managing Directors of OgilvyOne countries in Asia Pacific and broader consulting community

5. Senior Business Directors and account staff in OgilvyOne Hong Kong

OgilvyOne Worldwide

OgilvyOne Worldwide is the leading direct, customer relationship, interactive marketing and customer consulting network in the world, with 69 offices in 47 countries, and as part of the Ogilvy & Mather network, one of the world’s pre-eminent advertising and communications networks.

Ogilvy & Mather employs nearly 10,000 people across 57 countries. Ogilvy & Mather Worldwide is in turn part of the WPP Group, the world’s largest marketing services group employing over 20,000 people.

In Asia Pacific, OgilvyOne operates 28 offices in 13 markets – including full service agencies in Australia, Hong Kong, India (4 offices), Malaysia, Philippines, Japan, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand. Our offices in most markets are fully incorporated with responsibility for their own P&L. In newer or emerging markets (Korea, Vietnam and Indonesia), we operate as a division of Ogilvy Advertising.

Hong Kong

OgilvyOne Hong Kong has been in operating for 22 years and is the leading one to one marketing agency in terms of client billings and number of staff.

OgilvyOne Hong Kong is one of the leading creative offices in the region and as recently as 2002 has been recognised as the regions best integrated direct marketer. A remarkable feat considering the size of the market in Hong Kong!

Today, OgilvyOne Hong Kong offers the following services:

Consulting: Understanding the relationship with the customer and devising programmes which increase share of customer

Communications: Our creative teams excel in creating brand-true communication that change customer attitudes, and get results.

Connections: Building the bridges between our clients and their customers through the use of appropriate technologies and media

Major clients include American Express, FedEx, IBM, Northwest Airlines, Nokia, Royal & SunAlliance and The Economist.

Applying OgilvyOne’s Strategy in Asia

OgilvyOne’s traditional heritage is O&Mdirect, the direct marketing arm of Ogilvy&Mather advertising. Increasingly, direct marketing has become a commoditised service, and OgilvyOne has had to evolve its strategy to add value to clients in new ways. The principal focus of this strategy expansion has been the provision of consulting services and the implementation of technology and data management through the connections business. Both of these approaches, while profitable in their own right, have focused on providing high end direct communications to clients which are differentiated in quality and results from the commoditised offerings in the marketplace.

Key to the development of the OgilvyOne operation has therefore been the differentiation of the offer via a consultancy ability – especially in the area of customer segmentation, lifecycle planning, data management, loyalty, and new product development. OgilvyOne attracts interest, respect and new clients by positioning itself as “a customer management expert”, specialising in the acquisition, development and retention of high-value customers.” The ability to deliver against recommendations is an added-value service to these consulting clients.

This approach is perceived as fresh and original, and is timely, given the increased competition in many of the core business sectors of our clients (e.g. banking, telecommunications, air travel). Companies are increasingly needing to understand how to retain their most valued clients – and to identify who they are!

The consulting strategy, leveraging OgilvyOne worldwide’s proprietary approach to gaining and keeping customers – called Customer OwnershipO&M – allows us to apply the latest thinking and tools to help clients develop effective strategies that maximise success.

The Role

The role of Consultant is critical to the success of the business. The person must be capable of delivering OgilvyOne’s consulting proposition in Hong Kong and because of the increasing regional nature of Hong Kong’s business across Greater China and beyond.

The role is a pivotal position within the business combining an ability to manage the challenges of servicing a growing consulting client base whilst juggling the responsibilities of new client business development and thought leadership within the OgilvyOne business as a whole. The application of strategic thinking to client challenges and the ability to build relationships with C-level client executives is an essential part of the role.

3 Personnel and Training
