“Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.”

– Mother Teresa

Welcome to the JOTW network.

(This issue of JOTW comes to you from Stockholm, Sweden. Wait, I’m going to send it from Newark, New Jersey because I don’t know where I’ll be tomorrow where I can get online.)

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 833.

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. 29,052 to be exact, as of today.

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.

*** And now for something completely different:

Dear Ned,

I know you're a little distracted right now by the IABC conference in Toronto, but I wanted to let you know that I object to one of the job listings in today's JOTW. I'm referring to #29. The ad reads as follows:

“NAPCO Precast has Immediate Openings for

Experienced Steel Tyers

Must have previous steel tying experience using Klein Pliers. Anyone considered for these positions will be tested on site to determine steel tying skill set.”

Ned, what does this have to do with professional communications? I appreciate that the job is in San Antonio (where I live), but as a communications and public affairs professional, I have little or no (read “no”) experience in tying any kind of steel using any kind of pliers whatsoever. I enjoy reading the JOTW, but where's your quality control?

Thanks for listening, In case you decide to run this letter in a future edition, I will add that I'd appreciate hearing from anyone in San Antonio who is seeking to hire a communicator for a more appropriate position.

Sincerely,

Jessica Bernstein

Independent Communications Professional

San Antonio, Texas

(You are referring to the JOTW “alternative selection.” Each week I offer one or more opportunities for those who just want to do something completely different. This job is just that, completely different.)

Oh. LOL! But you might want to more clearly label it as an alternative selection!

(It was under the heading of same, and grouped with other “non-traditional” communication jobs.)

Thanks.

I think I speak for many of your readers when I say that the first thing I do is to scan the short list to look for jobs located in my city. If I find one (a rare occurrence for those of us in San Antonio), I then look to the detailed section to find out more about it. That's what I did this time, but I managed to miss the “alternative” heading above the detailed description of this one, steel tyer.

At least I got a laugh out of it! Keep sending the JOTW.

Jessica Bernstein

*** Problem with Latest Communications Posting

Mr. Lundquist:

Thank you for the postings you provide. Yours is one site I look at every single week. You may be aware, however, that there is a problem with this week’s posting. One of the jobs about which I was interested was filled two months ago and another has a submission date of April 2010. Again, if you are already aware of the problem, please forgive me for taking your time.

Thanks again.

(I guess I usually don’t notice such things. I apologize. I don’t check or approve on each job submitted.)

I didn’t think you necessarily looked at each posting but didn’t know who else to contact. It’s an excellent service and, since it has your name on it, I thought you would want to know.
