“Experience is that marvelous thing that enables you to recognize

a mistake when you make it again.”

— F. P. Jones

*** Welcome to the JOTW network.

This is the often-talked-about, sometimes copied, but totally unique weekly, still publishing after all these years, award-winning JOTW networking newsletter for professional communicators…like you, dedicated to the positive unanticipated consequences of networking, or as we call it, “nedworking.”

This is a cooperative service, which means it requires everyone’s cooperation, and since you are part of everyone, yes, you, I’m looking at you, don’t look down at your shoes. Everybody has to share. How does it work? If you find out about a job opportunity in communications, send it to me (lundquist989@cs.com), and I'll share it with the JOTW network. It's that simple. And we share dozens of opportunities each week. Your friends can sign up by sending a blank e-mail to JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.

You are among 11,305 subscribers in this community of communicators.

This network is all about connecting communicators and sharing opportunities. And speaking of sharing, since the JOTW newsletter was started, more than 25,000 job opportunities have been listed and shared with members of this network. 30,086 to be exact, as of today.

I can’t change your e-mail address for you. But you can. Send a blank e-mail from your old account to JOTW-unsubscribe@topica.com. Then send a blank e-mail from your new account to JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.

If you can read this newsletter, then you are on the JOTW list. If you did not receive your JOTW newsletter by email in your in box this morning, it is because you have a junk mail folder, spam filter, or capacity issues on your end.

*** One Paragraph Pitch:

Hello Ed,

We met briefly last Fall at the DC IABC Silver Quill Banquet. I've recently

relocated to the DC area from the SanFran Bay Area [I was President of

Silicon Valley IABC when we met] and am attending a grad program at George

Washington's Elliott School. Classes are in the evening, and I'm hoping to

find some part time professional communications work during the day – or

perhaps some writing gigs that would be flexible in the hours required. I'm

wondering if you know of any agents here in the DC Metro area that might rep

people like me? I don't know anyone here so using a middle man is probably

my best way to start this quest. Thank you for any info, and thank you for

continuing to send JOTW!

Kind regards,

Kathy

*** With this software, applying is hard:

Ned:

I would like to ask the HR folks who read JOTW to carefully take a look at the software used on their websites to take employment applications. Some of it is remarkably good and some is beyond awful. If you aren't receiving as many applicants as you expect, there may be a reason why. Maybe it's time to change vendors.

One of the JOTW listings this week is with a firm whose career page is beyond awful. I have tried several times to apply for positions there and have been unsuccessful, even though I'm of reasonable intelligence and fairly literate in the use of websites. It requires arcane codes rather names for colleges, times out — then erases — pages if a visitor takes more than a minute or two per page, and has bizarre instructions that make no sense.

Perhaps such forms are an insight on organizations' management style, and maybe it's just as well I don't get a job with one of them. One acquaintance maintains this is all on purpose: Scare off all applicants so the hiring manager can go ahead and give the job to the vice president's tennis instructor's daughter, like they know they'll have to do anyway.
