*** One Paragraph Pitch:

Dear Ed,

I've been a subscriber using your site on and off over the past few years and I think it's just a wonderful site to connect communicators of all kinds all across the country. I was referred by a friend of mine from my Corp Comm grad program. Thank you for your genius insight in creating and distributing this online job forum for communicators of all kinds, and for maintaining such a genuine networking site. I don't believe I've ever posted the one-time paragraph pitch so I am hoping I can do so now:

———

Untraditional, atypical professional strategic communicator seeks to relocate from the West Coast to the East Coast (Boston area) and find a position as a mid-level program manager in either a communications and/or marketing related field in Biotech/Pharmaceutical industry. Significant experience creating, developing, and executing successful programs for healthcare products, and a background in developing marketing/communication healthcare plans both on the client and agency side of the business. Core competencies include: account management (vendor/client supervision), resource allocation/forecasting, project/program management, new business proposal development, and process/policy development and rollout for compliance and standards. Additional and noteworthy experience includes coalition-building, advocacy campaigning, and lobbying international non-profits. If you're not looking for someone who is an “apples-to-apples” comparison for a position, then I could be that person you seek.

While I have the “communication skills and experience” I have not worked in a traditional “communications” role/title. However, my breadth of experiences have taught me how to apply that big-picture focus and become an integral part of the team, or so my supervisors have said of me. Even if you don't have a position but are willing to network , I would greatly appreciate the opportunity. I can be reached at: habsdj@yahoo.com

Thank you for allowing me to post my “digits” Ed!

*** From Ken Jensen:

Ned,

I've just put the finishing touches on my novel, a 109k word mystery thriller that encompasses nuclear terrorism and illegal immigration. Now I'm wondering what do I do next? Find an agent? Find a publisher? Or, save the paper to be used to start the fireplace next winter?

Does the Nedwork include publishers that I may contact? Or, do you personally know of any that I may contact?

Writing the book was hard work. This part seems harder.

*** From Dee Ellison:

Ned, you are amazing to be able to keep up this extremely useful source of job openings — especially given your recent travel schedule. This one has 90 — that's ninety!!! — jobs listed. Fantastic. Thanks for all you do for your community. I'm happy in my job and not hunting, but I enjoy reading the newsletter and send in postings whenever I hear of any available job.

Take good care.

Best, DeeDee

*** From Beth Lemen:

Dear Ed,

Just wondering if I could get feedback from your subscribers on something that's been bugging me for awhile:

Why does it seem (at least to me and maybe I am biased or egotistical) that the jobs posted nowadays either are for senior-level managers, directors, etc., or entry-level professionals just starting out with just a few years of experience. Why are there relatively few middle management jobs seeking someone who either neither an executive nor an entry-level? Are these types of positions no longer needed, or not advertised or are companies too top-heavy. Just wondering if I am the “lone wolf” out there on this thinking or if anyone has any insight into this possibly, creditable theory.

Thank you Ed

BLeman

(If you have some insight to share, send to Ned at lundquist989@cs.com.)

*** 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.)

Our Client

American Traffic Solutions, Inc. (ATS) is a leading provider of technology and business solutions for photo traffic safety and electronic toll enforcement programs worldwide.
