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 11,310 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. 30,381 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.

*** Creating a Social Media Strategy:

Every communicator needs to “get” social media; but how do you set a social media strategy for your organization? How do you convince management that it makes sense for your company – or tell them it's time to wait? And, once you're there, how do you make the case for continued efforts, build momentum, and tie it to business results? Area 224 shows you how in its “Creating a Social Media Strategy” webinar, on October 28 from 1-2 Eastern. More than just a webinar – you'll get a downloadable toolkit when you attend. Just $65 – and you can share the materials with others in your company. Here's the link for JOTW readers: http://socialstrategy-ned.eventbrite.com.

*** Waxing and waning:

Ned,

Thank you for the subtle humor in today’s JOTW newsletter.

I loved the extended ‘wax’ opportunities.

Here’s hoping that in today’s unusual economy, the job market for communicators continues to ‘wax’ versus ‘wane.’

And thanks for all you do for IABC members and the larger JOTW audience.

Wax on!

Do you enjoy using new social media channels as a means to communicate with influential people? Do you want to be part of the team that is responsible for promoting the world’s leading software as it evolves to embrace a newgeneration of users?

Microsoft customers look to outside experts such as Gartner, Forrester, IDC and others for advice on many of their technology purchasingdecisions. Along with these established firms, a new breed of influencers is impacting how and when customers — from Fortune 500 companies to small businesses to parents — purchase Microsoft products. The difference between winning and losing sales is often impacted by what industry analysts and other influencers (bloggers, pundits and industry experts) write and say about Microsoft.

You will join an integrated team of communications professionals to create your own analyst and influencer relations program to educate and positively impact the opinions of key analysts and influencers.

Success will require working closely with cross-group product experts, cross-group communications professionals and outside agency representatives. Candidates must be skilled and experienced in interacting effectively at all levels and able to represent Microsoft as a public spokesperson. Success will be measured by the candidate’s impact on analyst and influencer reports, blogs and coverage, building a strategic, thought-leading AR and influencer program and effective management of agency resources to achieve plan objectives.

Candidates should have a passion for technology, a track record of delivering results and a desire to conquer big challenges. The ideal candidate is a disciplined executor and strategic thinker with 10 or more years of marketing communications experience, including strong writing and verbal communications skills.
