*** Survey says!

Hello Ned –

My company Expedition PR is conducting a survey on communications practices, priorities, and needs of small to midsized technology companies in a global market place. The goal is to get responses from as many sub-technology sectors and countries as possible to identify trends and – on the long run – build a more scientific body of knowledge. Sharing insights will only take about 10 minutes. Participants will receive an executive summary of the results

I was wondering whether it would be possible to share this survey with your newsletter readership as your job listings include positions at tech companies or agency positions servicing tech clients.

I’d be happy to provide this list also with the survey results, once available.

Survey link: http://bit.ly/ce5cCT

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Thank you!

Hi:

I have moved to Texas and you never have any jobs listed for Texas. So

could you please take me off your mailing list? Thanks!

Margaret

(You can just follow the instructions in your newsletter. It is not true that there are never jobs listed for Texas. And it is important to note that JOTW is a cooperative service that relies on the contributions of its members. I would hope you would continue to be a member of this network, and submit job opportunities you learn about, especially from Texas.)

Ned:

I will be in Austin; you REALLY don't have any jobs listed for Austin

(and won't in the future, I'm sure). It's a relatively small town.

Your newsletter is really for big-city folks.
