“Meetings are indispensable when you don't want to do anything.”

- John Kenneth Galbraith

Welcome to the JOTW network.

(This issue of JOTW comes to you from Toronto, Ontario.)

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?”

The award-winning, free Job of the Week e-mail networking newsletter for professional communicators is dedicated to the positive unanticipated consequences of networking, or as we call it, “nedworking.”

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 11,591 subscribers in this community of communicators.

This is newsletter number 832.

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. 28,985 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.

***Independent thinking:

Hi Ed!

Long time no chat –

Bridget Robey Anderson here with a spontaneous question. (old AMA colleague)

Are you familiar with any good “job hunting” resources for independents?

I.e., I have my own Communication Consulting practice and am actively exploring new opportunities on a consulting, interim, or per project basis.

I thoroughly enjoy going through JOTW but it’s by and large for the FT marketplace.

Just thought you might know of various sites, listservs, etc….

Thanks for any and all ideas. I owe ya!

Bridget,

Bridget. R. Anderson

(How about it, JOTW network. Any ideas for Bridget?)

Here’s another way to state the question:

Resources for Exploring Consulting Opportunities for Independents

Anyone know of sites/listservs/resources for the Independent MarCom Consultant Community? [Preferably in the Washington, DC Metropolitan area but all responses are welcome] I.e., interim, per project or ongoing consulting opportunities with companies/organizations experiencing a hiring freeze or someone out on family/maternity leave or just have a tight deadline and need an extra pair of hands or a special expertise???

We'll compile and share a master list of resources if the interest is there.

Bridget

(Bridget…we’ll see what the network has to say. Ned)
