“A mature person is one who is does not think only in absolutes, who is able to be objective even when deeply stirred emotionally, who has learned that there is both good and bad in all people and all things, and who walks humbly and deals charitably”

– Eleanor Roosevelt

*** An important announcement from Ned:

After 30 June 2010 I will no longer be employed by Alion Science and Technology subsidiary Washington Consulting Government Services. The WCGS business supporting the Office of Naval Research has been acquired by MRC, Inc. (www.mrci.com). I will become an MRC employee effective 1 July.

*** From KH:

I meant to ask you, do you want to know about opportunities even if we have nothing to do with the organization or individual hiring?

I ask because I come across a number of communications/marketing options that I'm not interested in regularly, but since I can't necessarily verify the details, I have not forwarded them.

Thanks for letting me know if you want me to send them to you.

(Absolutely. That’s what “nedworking” is all about. Make sure you have job, organization/company, location and how to contact them and/or apply. A short description is okay, too.)

*** Purely coincidence:

Ned: Nicely done on the small Austin debate with Margaret…You number #1 posting provided a perfect response.

REALLY, Margaret, never say never.

Ned, your dedication and sly wit keeps me coming back–as well as the possibility that you may offer up an opportunity in Dallas.

Thanks for the smile!

All the best,

Terry Young

(The Austin job listed first in the newsletter was submitted before the criticism regarding the lack of Texas jobs was received. The truth is the list is what it is, and that is in large what the members of the network submit. Those who say the list doesn’t have jobs for them are usually people who have never participated in the true cooperative sense. – Ned)

*** You “REALLY don’t have any jobs listed for Austin”:

Hello Ned,

I wanted to thank you for all your hard work in supplying communicators across the globe with an opportunity to post and learn about job openings. I found it particularly funny that Margaret’s letter to you complaining that you “REALLY don’t have any jobs listed for Austin” appeared in the same edition that contained TWO job prospects in Austin, TX.

Each week I am impressed by the diversity of listings and the vastness of locations, and am grateful that you give your time and creativity in providing free job information to the thousands of subscribers.

Thank you for all that you do, and I will continue to forward any postings that I come across that may be of interest to your subscribers.

Have a wonderful day!

*** Mount Sinai:

Hi Ned,

Hope this finds you well and traveling somewhere exotic this week. C:

I sent the “The Mount Sinai Medical Center Can’t Wait” posting to my friend Keith, a shoe in for the senior slot last evening. He looked on Mt Sinai’s site and the posting is already gone?

Do you have a contact there, ie, the person who wanted the “can’t wait” posting done to find out what’s up? It disappeared way too fast.

Wonder what is up.

NSG

(Let’s ask the recruiter.)

The job is still listed on the site. Please search using the Requisition number in the posting, 09-51988. There is a special field for the Req number on the site. Unfortunately the Mount Sinai site is confusing and they have it listed as “Director” in the search results. Please let me know if this helps.

Thanks,

Amanda

Pfizer also complies with all applicable national, state and local laws governing nondiscrimination in employment as well as employment eligibility verification requirements of the Immigration and Nationality Act. All applicants must have authorization to work for Pfizer in the U.S. In certain circumstances it may be advantageous to Pfizer to support the application(s) for temporary visa classification and/or sponsor applications for permanent residence so that a foreign national colleague can accept or remain in a work assignment in the U. S. For certain classes of temporary visas, the resulting work authorization may be specific to Pfizer and the specific job and/or work site. Pfizer may at its business discretion decide to or refrain from obtaining, maintaining and/or extending the temporary visa status and/or sponsoring a colleague for permanent residency and /or employment eligibility, considering factors such as availability of qualified U.S. workers and the colleague's long-term prospects for securing lawful permanent residence, among other reasons. Employment applicants requiring immigration sponsorship must disclose, when initial application for employment is made, whether or not they are legally authorized to work for Pfizer in the U.S. and, if so, whether that authorization permits them to work in the job they seek. In no case should Pfizer's support of a colleague's temporary visa application or sponsorship of a colleague for permanent residence be construed to guarantee success of that application or amend or otherwise invalidate the “at-will” employment relationship between the colleague and Pfizer.
