*** One Paragraph Pitch:

Hi Ned,

After six years as a full-time caregiver and part-time graduate student, I find myself released from both responsibilities and back in the job hunt, and the logical place to start is JOTW, of course. I'd appreciate it if you could post this OPP in the hopes that my dream job is out there in the Chicagoland area somewhere.

Thanks,

Debra

I am a strategic communications/public relations professional with 18 years experience in diverse areas of the healthcare industry (long term care, hospital, medical and healthcare associations) developing comprehensive public relations/strategic communications programs, as well as building public relations departments from the ground up. I have extensive experience in marketing, strategic planning, reputation management and social media, research and evaluation, interviewing/scripting skills, and developing and leading employee training programs. I'm also well-versed in oral, written, editing and presentation skills, although I enjoy developing these materials to enable executives to shine. I have expertise in developing plain language documents that convey complex clinical topics clearly and concisely to the mass media and general public. I also speak “business” and have a newly minted MBA to offer as proof. I'm looking for my dream job in the Chicagoland area, as my husband's employer is curiously attached to him, so relocation is not an option for a few more years yet. You can reach me at 773-445-4353, dcaplick@ameritech.net, www.linkedin.com/in/debrabethardcaplick, or @dcaplick.

*** I asked Joe Rutland who submitted our first posting in this week’s issue, if he worked at the Laredo Times, and if the flood affected him:

Hey Ned — Yes, I work here … until July 30. This job listing is for my position at the Laredo Morning Times. Our building is located 4-5 miles away from downtown Laredo, so we were not affected by the Rio Grande flooding. Yet it did affect businesses downtown and forced closure of the historic La Posada Hotel for a couple of days. Things are slowly (and I do mean slowly) getting back to business as usual. Cleaning up will take time, my friend.

I am leaving and already have moved back to Austin (I'll get there in a sec), so I'm commuting for my final two-plus weeks here in Laredo. It's just time for me to move along and I have a couple of prospects in Austin, so I'll see what happens from there.

Just an aside: I have been getting JOTW for more than a year now and enjoy it. A few weeks ago, someone from Austin e-mailed you about no jobs being listed ever from the Austin area. I had to laugh to myself because … well … I've seen them in there way before this person's note (and that's her employment/life stuff, not mine). Yet I did like your subtle response by leading off that week's job listings with one from … gasp! … Austin. (Ned, I do have a sense of humor and, well, can be sarcastic, too.)

Anyway, all that above is not for dissemination on JOTW.

Just my two cents to you and saying thanks for the JOTW. I know there are opportunities out there … yes, even in Austin.

Take care, Ned, and have a great week.

Grace and peace — Joe

1.) Business Editor, Laredo Morning Times, Laredo, Texas

Laredo Morning Times is seeking an enthusiastic, finance-minded journalist who can write and edit a weekly business magazine-style publication as well as a monthly health section and occasional special sections. This person is responsible for covering the business community for main news as well as for the weekly section. Laredo is a city of about 200,000 on the Texas-Mexico border; across the Rio Grande, there are another 500,000 or so souls in Nuevo Laredo. We're about a two-hour drive from San Antonio and a two-hour drive to the beach, and we have the best Mexican food in the state. This is a thriving international trade community; it's the largest land port in the United States. Laredo's Texas A&M International University offers one of the few doctorates available nationwide in international trade and produces internationally recognized trade publications. Oil and gas production are big, as is ranching and hunting. The candidate must know Microsoft Word. Working knowledge of Spanish is a plus. This is your chance to be in charge! If you've got energy, initiative and enjoy working fairly independently, send your clips and resume to Editor Diana R. Fuentes at dfuentes@lmtonline.com.

Hello

I have the following editorial positions I would like to post on your site. Thanks.

Liz Webb

Human Resources Manager

Progressive Business Publications

Malvern, PA

38.) EDITORIAL, Progressive Business Publications, Malvern, PA

Who are we looking for?

Progressive Business Publications seeks qualified candidates at all experience levels.

1. Entry-level: Candidates must have a minimum of one or two years of writing experience, which may have been gained in college. Many of our editors came to PBP from daily newspapers, community weeklies and both trade and consumer magazines.

2. Intermediate-level: Candidates must have several years’ experience and a track record of success in a previous writing or editing job.

3. Senior-level: In the past we’ve hired two types of senior candidates:

• Specialized journalists with a proven track record writing on a specific topic.

• Journalists with a strong background in the generalist press who feel they’re ready to make the switch to specialized publishing and eventually assume leadership positions.

What types of positions are available?

1. Assistant Editors are the best and brightest recent college graduates in liberal arts or have a year or two of experience as reporters and writers. They are only hired if we believe they have the potential to become an Editor in Chief. They typically begin writing for two publications. Our goal is to give them exposure to different fields and see what they like and what they’re good at. Eventually, they’ll specialize in one field. As a rule, it takes at least a year to learn our business. A successful Assistant Editor could become an Editor in Chief in one to three years.

2. Senior Editors always write a publication when they join our company. That’s the only way to learn the business. We hope that after a year or so, senior editors will know their field and understand the newsletter business. At that point, if they have management potential, we like to see them begin developing other writers and editing other publications in addition to writing their own.

3. Managing Editors are responsible for editing one, two or more publications. And they’re responsible for developing our Junior and Assistant Editors. Our Managing Editors always continue to write their own publication (albeit with significant help from Assistant Editors).

4. Group Publishers manage an entire group of publications. Editors and Managing Editors report to them. At present we have five groups: Sales/Marketing, Financial Management, Regulatory/Compliance, HR/Employment Law and Non-profit Management. The Group Publisher has full responsibility for the financial performance of the publication group.

What does it take to succeed?

1. Superior reporting and writing skills. Many of our best young people have come from community newspapers. Others have done trade reporting. Our senior editors have come from top newspaper, wire service, magazine and broadcast companies. These include UPI, USA Today, The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Legal Intelligencer, sports magazines, all-news radio stations and others.

2. Willingness to gain deep knowledge of a specific field. Almost all of our writers did not have such knowledge when they came to PBP. They did, however, come with a strong desire to learn.

3. Willingness to take on the unique challenges of the newsletter industry. Again, most of our people didn’t know the newsletter business when they arrived. We stress to candidates repeatedly during the interview process that newsletters are unlike anything they’ve done before, that specialized publishing requires a new way of thinking, and that it’s very challenging.

What kind of people fit in at PBP?

1. They’re bright.

2. They have strong values.

3. They’re eager to try something new and different.

4. They’re eager to work in a high-performance, non-political environment

5. They’re committed to continuous learning.

6. They’re team players who thrive in a collegial environment.

7. They like accountability.
