*** Asking two much?

So, Ned, I saw this ad in this week’s JOTW, and it seems to be part of a trend: asking one person to do two full time jobs:

Science Writer – Public Relations Specialist, Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (APL), Laurel, MD

At least this one is for two jobs at the same level and in similar categories. More often, I see writing jobs combined with administrative assistant work, which I thing devalues both skill sets. Am I the only one who thinks this two-for-one special is a bad idea?

*** 2010 IABC Heritage Region Conference

Save the date for the 2010 IABC Heritage Region Conference October 17-19, 2010, in Philadelphia, Home of Independent Thinking. The conference will consist of approximately twenty 75-minute breakout sessions, and three in-depth 3-hour sessions on key topics affecting today’s business communicators.

Volunteer journalists, photo-journalists, graphic artists, Women's Rights, The Mountain Volunteer, Kathmandu, Nepal

Marriage comes early in Nepal. Women born in the late 1970s married at a median age of 16. And motherhood is particularly dangerous. Nepal is the “deadliest place in the world to give birth outside Afghanistan and a clutch of countries in sub-Saharan Africa,” according to a 2006 report by the International Federation of the Red Cross. That’s because only about 1 in 5 births is attended by trained health personnel. (source: ForeignPolicy.com)

Against the backdrop of these issues, and a female literacy rate of 35%, our women’s foundation works every day to address these imbalances. This is a highly selective program best suited for journalists, photo-journalists, graphic artists and those engaged in women’s studies as an academic pursuit.

Costs are $300 placement fee ($100 of which is used to help the organizations and activities supported by The Mountain Fund in Nepal) plus $15 per day for the length of your stay and includes room and board, airport pickup, free Internet and WiFi and 24/7 staff support. No required length of stay.

Please send us an email for further inquiries about this highly selective program to volunteer@mountainfund.org .
