Hi Ned,

Opened your website this a.m. When I click “more”, I see a list of key words, but not the usual list of jobs. I also get JOTW by email, which seems fine, just more cumbersome, of course.

Just curious whether anyone else reported this problem. Last week’s newsletter on your website was fine.

Though I am retired, I watch this site for friends and also for a career transition support group that I co-lead. We have nearly 200 members on our rolls and about 40 members who come to meetings each week. A few marketing/communications/pr types, but mostly other professions.

I am continually amazed by all you can do and all the good you have done.

Best regards,

Al Rankin

52.) Science news officer, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA

The University of Pennsylvania is seeking a science news officer to handle research news and media relations for the School of Engineering and Applied Science, the School of Veterinary Medicine, the School of Dental Medicine and the science departments of the School of Arts and Sciences.

The ideal candidate would have previous media-relations experience, preferably in a higher-education setting. A background in science would be highly desirable. Experience in dealing with major national and international news media is a definite plus; however, someone without that level of media-relations experience might be considered if he or she can offer abundant evidence of being able to rise to that level with minimal start-up time.

The position also involves writing for the Web and for internal publications.

We seek a self-starter who can see the broad picture while also attending to details, who can work with Ivy League deans and faculty in translating research for lay audiences and who is a team player as well as an independent worker. The position requires excellent writing skills, and a writing test will be administered.

The position is part of the central University Communications Office at Penn and reports to the director of media relations.

Should you wish to inquire about the position, please e-mail Ron Ozio, director, media relations, at ozio@upenn.edu . Please note: no phone calls or unannounced visits please.

69.) Scare Actors, The Haunted Graveyard, Lake Compounce, Bristol, CT

For those new to the Graveyard, our attraction is made up of a series of “Houses”. A 45-minute walk takes our guests through the six major Houses linked by a trail of eerie and terrifying scenes. Each area has a theme with a story to tell. Our Featured Actors are here to create the characters that tell those stories. Our storylines define the theme and characters of each House or trail. In some cases, there are scripted lines. But if you're an experienced actor that loves developing your character, then this is the place for you!

For the 2010 season, we are expecting 65,000 people to go through our gates in just 14 nights! Some nights we may have as many as 9,000 people walking through. You, as a Featured Actor, have only a matter of a few seconds, to convey your character, help tell the story of your House, and most importantly, Scare our guests!

Our Guests have to keep moving through the Houses, so no stopping for a soliloquy! But your character may move through several rooms of your House to support your character's development or the storyline of the House. You may pass them off to the next Featured Actor in your house. Along the way, our Scare Actors may be lurking in the shadows. While you're distracting our Guests, the Scare Actors jump out to add another element of surprise! Our goal is to make this year's Haunted Graveyard an interactive experience for our guests… without touching the guests, and without them touching you!

We pride ourselves on the rich detail of our Houses and Trails. Our sets and décor are second to none. We have scores of animatronics that jump, pop, poke, grab, fly and roll at you. The lighting and sound set the stage for each scene. Fog, wind and even a waterfall add to the sensations our Guests experience.

And, of course, the Screams. Screams can be heard from every corner of the Graveyard, heightening the tension and keeping our Guests wondering what's coming next! Now we want the Featured Actors to add another dimension to the Halloween experience. We want you to bring the stories of the Graveyard alive!

Our Scare Actors have been with us since the beginning of the Haunted Graveyard in 1991. They have helped make us the largest Halloween show in New England and we couldn't do it without them! These High School volunteers (ages 14-18) are provided great costumes and makeup and help support the theme of the House where they are assigned.

Because of our association with the American Diabetes Association, high school students volunteering to work at the Graveyard can receive Community Service hours as well as great incentives such as Haunted Graveyard t-shirts and gift cards.

For a paid position, you MUST be 18 years old or over and a resident of the United States with the legal right to hold a job in the US.

For Featured Actors, House Managers and Behind-the-Scenes staff, you must be available for all 14 nights of the show. Certain exceptions MAY be considered if requested at time of application.

Scare Actors will be asked to fill out a list of nights available to work. We will expect you to be here for those nights! The more nights you work, the more Gift Incentives you will receive.

All actors will be expected to arrive at the Graveyard at 4:00pm the day of each show to get in costume and makeup in time for the opening.

One 15-minute break will be given each evening. Portable toilets (Men's and Women's) will be provided. Actors are expected to check the weather forecast prior to each evening's show and dress appropriately. It can get cold!

SMOKING IS NOT ALLOWED ANYWHERE ON THE HAUNTED GRAVEYARD PROPERTY.

NO CELLPHONES… CALLS OR TEXTING. NO EXCEPTIONS!

Violation of Smoking and Cell phone rules are grounds for immediate dismissal.

You cannot EVER touch the customers. And they cannot touch you!
