*** Welcome to the JOTW network.

Here we go again with another week and another edition of the JOTW Newsletter. This is the often-talked-about, sometimes copied, but totally unique weekly publication, pretty basic, nothing fancy, down-to-earth, non-pretentious, but still pretty great you have to admit, 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. Take a minute to think about what that word means, and then ask you self how cooperative are you?

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 11,329 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. 30,680 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.

11.) Marketing and Outreach Fellow, City First Homes, Arlington, VA

Interested in playing a leadership role in a city-wide marketing and outreach campaign? Would you like to use your creative marketing skills to help spread an exciting new paradigm for urban affordable housing?

BACKGROUND: City First Homes (CFHomes) is a nonprofit supported significantly by the Washington, DC government, which offers an alternative to the current national paradigm of affordable housing: large-scale, concentrated, continually subsidized public housing. In contrast, City First Homes supports the development of mixed-income communities through the creation of permanently affordable, shared-appreciation homes. At a time when public budgets are constrained, City First Homes leverages a thin, one-time subsidy to create a model of homeownership that remains affordable in perpetuity. The program supports families who had previously been priced out of the homeownership market, to leave renting and access the long term wealth-building benefits and stability of owning a home. When a homeowner chooses to sell, 75% of the home price appreciation stays with the home and goes as a direct grant to the next buyer, thus keeping the home permanently affordable; the program still allows the homeowner to build significant wealth. In a rapidly gentrifying city like DC, CFHomes helps to keep neighborhoods affordable. To learn more about our philosophy, please visit: http://www.cfhomes.org/cgi-bin/CFH?s=about&e=2

CFHomes has been covered by The Washington Post, McClatchey, Washington's local NPR station, and Urban Land Magazine.

THE POSITION: CFHomes is in its exciting launch phase, and seeks a Marketing and Outreach Fellow on a part-time, unpaid basis. We are willing to negotiate hours you'd like to work each week, as well as length of the position.

The Fellow will work with the Program Manager to spread the word about our exciting program. By supporting CFHomes, you are supporting a new paradigm of urban affordable housing.

This is a great opportunity to build one's resume, learn a great deal about affordable housing and urban policy, and pick up new skills! While those with outreach and marketing skills are preferred, if you don't have a lot of marketing experience but are ready to plunge in, we'd love to hear from you! Previous knowledge of community mortgage lending is not required; you will receive training on our program.

YOUR SKILLS: We seek candidates who are detail and task-oriented, enjoy interacting with people, and love outreach and marketing. You will be required to interact with diverse group of people, including the community group, city government, realtor, and homebuyer communities.

Duties may include:

– Working directly with prospective purchasers to help them through the purchase process (you will receive training on this aspect)

– Developing and executing a city-wide outreach strategy with the Program Manager

– Building relationships with various nonprofit, for-profit, and city organizations to promote the program

– Leveraging social media, mailing lists, blogs and online tools to promote the program

– Designing marketing material such as informational sheets, flyers, diagrams, and PPT slides

– Event planning – organizing events to build buzz around the program!

– Any ideas you may have to build support for this program

Duration of position and hours per week to be discussed.

This position is part-time and unpaid.

Thank you very much for your interest!
