*** 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 11,332 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. 30,818 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:

I am an energetic and dynamic worker, Ivy League-educated but with a down to Earth personality; can balance well the mission to get the job done at a high level with the notion to enjoy what I am doing and those around me. I am a fluent Spanish speaker, capable and accustomed to working in both languages at any moment, with a natural curiosity for myriad foreign cultures.

The last seven years I have spent with a Major League Baseball organization handling a variety of responsibilities in my roles: statistical analysis of players, purchasing/billing, oversight of the cultural assimilation of our Latin players, nearly all administration related to our Latin American program including players, coaches, and scouts. From a writing standpoint, I was often the final proofreader on e-mails, letters, and press releases within a couple of our departments, and am also an aspiring debut novelist.

*** How to?

I am interested in posting a Marketing Manager position for my organization in your newsletter. Could you please let me know the steps to take to complete the posting? Thank you for your help.

*** A chat with Sonja Johnson, editor and publisher of the HEPN newsletter (posted each week at www.nedsjotw.com):

Ned: What made you start putting out HEPN?

Sonja: I have been a JOTW subscriber for a number of years. A few years ago, I found that my career path was headed away from communications and towards events. It occurred to me that I probably wasn't the only JOTW reader in this situation, and that there was a niche to be served with a JOTW-style newsletter focused on events and hospitality positions. Thus, HEPN was born in the spring of 2006.

Ned: What kind of job opportunities do you post? And how do you find them?

Sonja: The majority of positions on HEPN are events jobs, such as meeting planning, logistics, speaker management, etc. However, there are other events related positions, including ones at hotels, associations serving hospitality and events professionals, etc. I find them through meeting professional association web sites, newspaper listings, and the HEPN readership.

Ned: How can people post jobs with your newsletter if they have one

available, or know about one?

Sonja: If people have a job available or know about one, they can email me at sonjahepn@comcast.net.

Ned: What's the most challenging part of this effort for you?

Sonja: HEPN is currently small but mighty. As a result, there are fewer of us sharing the positions to be included. The challenge for me is encouraging folks to share the positions they find! (I can and do find many positions for sharing, but the newsletter would have more with increased participation!)

Another challenge stems from the very nature of the events business. I am a full time conference and events planner in my “real life”. As a result, I frequently travel for work and work 12-16 hour days while on the road. That sometimes, unfortunately, interferes with my ability to accumulate as many positions to list in HEPN as I would like.

Ned: Why do you do it?

Sonja: I'm a believer in “ned”working! 🙂 What goes around comes around, and I choose to share opportunities with others. You never know when the opportunity will come back to you!

Ned: What's most gratifying part of what you are doing?

The support of the HEPN readers – you never know when someone is going to come out of the woodwork. And it always makes me happy when they do!

Happy Holidays!

Sonja

*** From Larry Bearfield, on Ned’s comments about the old Newton High School:

There will never be a stadium like the old one!

(But all the fights were under those bleachers on the visitor’s side.)

Or out on Walnut Street – especially trying to tip the buses over…..

(That wasn’t too hard to do with those old buses. When the tech girls would get into a fight, everyone would look out that side of the buses and they would just about tip themselves over.)

LOL you're right about that….. and no one would rush to break the fight up….. ah, the days of girls fighting in mini-skirts!

(Wearing their Newton Tech jackets….)

Tight sweaters under the Tech jacket… Gold chains… big hoop earrings… and huge huge hair held in place with a can of hair spray. And the gum… they all chewed a wad of gum.
