*** Should Ned stop publishing the JOTW alternative selections? The results are in.

JOTW offers weekly “alternative selections” for those who have had enough of the communications field and need an abrupt change of occupation. Are these alternative selections inappropriate, and do they detract from the JOTW brand and experience?

Yes,the alternative selections are inappropriate, and I don't think they should appear in JOTW.

11 (8%)

No, I think they're okay.

80 (58%)

Can you get me one of those alternative selections, and place me in the witness protection program?

*** Uncle Bud:

I was in Spokane this weekend to attend the funeral of my uncle, Charles F. “Bud” Kirby, Jr. He was 89. He served in World War II as a radio-gunner aboard USMC SBD Dauntless dive bombers from Henderson Field at Guadalcanal. He was a husband, father and brother. He was always a Marine. He was a businessman with a flair for figures, and was the vice president and national sales manager for Tree Top Apple Juice in Selah, Washington. It was a life to celebrate. I also appreciated the opportunity to visit with my aunt and cousins whom I rarely get to see.

*** November is JOTW New Member month. All members of the JOTW network are required to sign up one new member. This way I will have 22,000 members by December 1. Will this happen? It starts with each one of you…all 11,000 of you.

*** Lights out:

I was waiting for the Dulles Airport Satellite Parking Shuttle very early on Thursday morning and saw a car with its lights on. I thought perhaps the driver was staying warm until the bus came into view. But there was no one inside. There was a note on the windshield that said, “If you find that your car won’t start it is because you left your lights on.” I heard the engine fan kick on, which meant that not only did the driver leave the lights on, but the engine running, as well. When I returned on Sunday night, the car was still there, with the note still on the windshield. But the lights were out.

*** Help Payless ShoeSource give away $1.2m in shoes this holiday

It's that time of year again. Over the past two years my company, Collective Brands and its business unit, Payless ShoeSource, have distributed $2.2M in coupons (77,000 pairs a year) for new shoes to children of families in need. The program is open again this year, with a streamlined application process and vastly improved website and Facebook presence.

With the help of my Linked-In network each year we have attracted qualified applications from nearly 3,000 charities in the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico and Latin America. The application period is from now until November 5th officially (a few additional days unofficially); selected charities will be announced later in November and the coupons will be valid for the months of December through February, 2010/2011.

Please forward this email to any charities you think could apply. All the details for the program can be found at www.paylessgives.com and on the payless gives Facebook page.

Last holiday season a lot of deserving kids got their first pair of new shoes ever through this program. With your help we can reach even more this year.

Thanks, so much.

Hey Capt.,

I love the last few jobs on the list. They can’t say you don’t have a variety. I hope you are well.

Rob Winchester

*** Freaked out:

Ned –

Oh, my freakin' gawd! I can't believe a) someone (or perhaps several someones) complained about the alternative selections and that b) a full 8% of respondents (at this point) say they're inappropriate.

Two things appear to be missing in these folks: tolerance and a sense of humor. LIGHTEN UP!

Sincerely,

Carl Dombek

*** From Dee Ellison:

Hi, Ned. Haven't seen you in a long time. I've been at my job at HHS for more than 2 years, and I'm grateful every single day. I still read JOTW every week because it's informative and fun and so I can pass along info about job opps to folks who are hunting. I totally agree with the comments offered (get a life; lighten up; expand your thought processes) about the alternative jobs listed here, and have a suggestion for those who don't like the alternative job listings: delete yourself from the JOTW email list. That way, you won't have to look at the alternate job selections, and the rest of us won't have to listen to you (or read you) whine. Thanks, Ned, for all you do! Best, Dee

*** Write-in vote:

Ned:

My screen doesn't show the voting box, but please count me as a “yes” for continuing to post the alternative selections. They are both funny and informative – as in, what might I do next? BTW over the weekend I saw a great documentary called “Lemonade” produced by a bunch of laid-off ad execs. It is certainly worth a watch. Virtually of of the people in it are doing “alternative jobs” now.

Alternative jobs… are they not a viable alternative to “job-postings-that-never-go-away”? The latter seems to be a particularly troublesome feature of many, many communications jobs that get posted (they end up being posted for months or even years). Either the hiring organization can't make up its mind whether it really NEEDS a new communicator, or that “perfect person” just doesn't exist. Which is, really, true.

Bob from CT

*** Narrow view:

I cannot believe the narrow view some people exhibit when ever anything gets out of the narrow channel in which they live. Get a life people, the world is actually round, there are other opinions besides yours and they also are valid. Get excited about something that actually makes a difference.

Ken Jensen

*** Put your arms down:

Ned,

The up-in-arms attitude over the just-for-fun listings prove once again just how stupid otherwise smart people can be.

6.) Vice President of Communications, City Year, Boston, Mass.

URL: http://www.cityyear.org

Job Description

Organization’s Mission and Goals

City Year was founded in 1988 on the belief that young people can change the world. The organization unites 17-24 year olds of all backgrounds for a year of full-time service, giving them the skills and opportunities to change the world. City Year’s diverse young leaders make a difference in the lives of children by working to close the achievement gap and turn around low performing schools in 20 U.S. locations and in London and South Africa. This year, more than 2000 City Year corps members are serving on diverse teams in schools and communities. City Year received more than 8,400 applications for 1,750 U.S. corps member positions in the 2010-11 program year. City Year is committed to engaging community members, corporate partners, and civic leaders in this work, and together we’re building a citizen service movement that is larger than our organization, our lifetime, and ourselves. City Year’s vision is that one day the most commonly asked question of a young person will be, “Where are you going to do your service year?”

City Year Service

At City Year’s 22 locations diverse young people serve full time for 10 months. These diverse and dedicated leaders put their idealism to work for children and communities especially through school-based service, as well as youth leadership programs and community transformation. City Year is focused on significantly reducing the high school dropout rate in each of our target cities. Through City Year’s Whole School, Whole Child service model, City Year deploys diverse teams of full-time corps

members in schools to help students stay on track – and get back on track – to graduate. Corps members serve in schools as tutors, mentors, role models and leaders of after-school programs. As near-peers, corps members are uniquely able to help improve student attendance, behavior and coursework – which research confirms are

indicators of a student's likelihood of graduating from high school. This school-based service is at the heart of City Year’s approach to helping students and schools succeed.

Another important way corps members help students succeed is by leading programs that teach elementary, middle school and high school students about how to be active citizens in their communities and make a difference. In addition, City Year corps members foster a city-wide ethic of service by engaging community members, corporate partners and civic leaders in transformative physical service such as painting murals, planting gardens, creating play spaces, renovating schools and refurbishing community centers.

Position Summary

Reporting to the Chief Strategy Officer, the Vice President of Communications will lead the creation and execution of a plan to build, manage, and resource the communications capacities of City Year that will ensure prime coverage with key audiences – private and public funders, national opinion leaders in education policy and service, and elected officials and their staff.

Outstanding writing ability, especially under pressure, and proven ability to work with national media outlets is required.
