Ned –

I've been a JOTW subscriber since 2003, and below is my first one-paragraph pitch. Whew. I hope you can find a space for it. Thank you for this running this network. Cheers.

Jeremy Kehoe

I am an award winning public relations executive as successful executing campaigns in the tactical trenches as driving strategic direction in the corporate boardroom.

Mine is a proven track record of delivering measurable results for businesses at every evolutionary stage – whether taking a start-up from the living-room whiteboard to the front page of The New York Times or directing crisis, analyst, media, employee, and post-merger internal messaging and communications campaigns for Fortune 500 companies.

I have written and placed byline articles in national and trade media, crafted executive speeches, developed copy for annual reports and employee newsletters, created online and print corporate, press and sales kit editorial, written advertising copy, created corporate Web sites, and media trained executives to deliver compelling and exclusive corporate and product messaging.

I am as eager to take on new challenges as I am ready to pursue the next opportunity.

We know how fast social media is changing, and how valuable your time and money are these days.

SMASH pushes the traditional conference into something much more interactive and practical. SMASH is designed to help you make better decisions about deploying social media for marketing, public relations and corporate communications. Presenters and attendees will huddle to air issues, seek advice, and tap into each other's wisdom while arriving at practical solutions. We believe having faculty and students in attendance adds another dimension to the learning environment. Our aim is to have everyone leave armed with the knowledge, inspiration — and a social network — that will become a supporting foundation for future challenges. As the necessity for business solutions increases, so does the need to huddle.

10 Reasons to attend

1. No final exam.

2. No death by PowerPoint.

3. A no-nonsense, jam-packed agenda at a fantastic conference price.

4. There will be some really smart people attending and osmosis works!

5. You will be engaged because All of us are smarter than one of us.

6. You will see, hear and learn many new things that will benefit you and your organization.

7. Inspiration is free. There will be a lot of that passed around.

8. There are advanced skills required in social media today. Here's where you will learn them.

9. When you have afterthoughts, you can still huddle in the Communitelligence private conference network.

10. USC is a really cool campus and you'll have a chance to reconnect with the student in you.

3.) Manager of Editorial Services, Turner Investments, Berwyn, Pennsylvania

Are you the talented un-corporate writer we are looking for?

Turner Investments, an investment-management firm in Berwyn, Pennsylvania, wants to hire a Manager of Editorial Services — an exceptional communicator who above all can write in a clear, simple, compelling way.

The ideal candidate for this position would be what we call a talented un-corporate writer — someone who avoids using clichés, corporate-speak, and wooden, abstract words like utilize, parameters, and incentivize that plague the written communications of so many companies. Who writes as if he or she were talking to another person, one human being in tune with another. Who believes no one was ever bored into reading anything. Who thinks E. B. White is a writer to be admired. Who can write everything from position papers to feature stories with a distinctive flair. Who perhaps has won awards for excellence in writing and publications. And who wants the chance to excel and gain more responsibility.

For this position, you don’t need any previous experience in financial services. We believe you can learn what you need to know about the investment-management business relatively quickly. But you do need to already have writing talent because that’s not so easy to acquire; the talent is either there or it isn’t. And we don’t care how junior or senior you are in your current job. If you can write well, in a way that interests the usually disinterested reader, then we’re interested in you.

If you’re interested in this Manager of Editorial Services position, please send your resume and three writing samples that you’re proud of to our Hiring Manager at careers@turnerinvestments.com.

“The greatest blunders, like the thickest ropes, are often composed of a multitude of strands. Take the rope apart, separate it into the small threads that compose it, and you can break them one by one. You think, “That is all there is?” But twist them all together and you have something tremendous.”

– Victor Hugo
