“Please share your [PR] approach with other banks… they could certainly learn some good lessons from you!”

I take pride in that feedback from one of the journalists I work with. I love what I do and am passionate about communications as a business tool – both externally working with the media and internally motivating and keeping employees informed. I have 15+ years of communications experience that includes media relations, internal communications, corporate social responsibility programs, special events and web/social media. I have primarily been in the financial services industry and enjoy the dynamic environment that brings. My work ethic was ingrained at an early age and I am always coming up with new ideas to use communications to bolster business objectives.

*** Attend SMASH (Social Media Advanced Skills Huddle), LA Apr 7

S.M.A.S.H. (Social Media Advanced Skills Huddle) is presented by Communitelligence and Social Radius at USC, Los Angeles. April 7, 2011. We know how fast social media is changing, and how valuable your time and money are these days. That's why we created SMASH, a series of unique how-to huddles on the campuses of the world's best universities, taught by some of America's top social media practitioners and experts. http://www.communitelligence.com/npps/story.cfm?nppage=156

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.

57.) Part-time position, Washington Bureau, RTTNews, Washington, DC

My employer, RTTNews, is looking to add a part-time position to our DC bureau, one with the potential of becoming full time a few months down the road but also open to those who would prefer to do that and pursue other freelance opportunities.

The primary duties would be covering “lockups” at the Departments of Labor and Commerce when they release weekly and monthly economic indicators. Select reporters are given access to a lockup room in which they turn in all cell phones and communications devices, the internet is turned off and the data is released on an embargoed basis. The reporter is then responsible for highlighting the important indicators and writing a short (roughly 200-400) word article. There will likely also need to be some quick data entry of the main indicators.

Speed and accuracy will be vital for this as the eventual goal, particularly for someone wishing to come on full time or as a permanent part-timer, will be to send out these stories and data un-edited directly to RTTNews clients for their trading purposes.

Because these indicators are frequently released at 8:30 and 10 a.m. the candidate would need to be available at least a few days per week between 7:15 or 7:30 through 10:15-30 several days per week.

Experience covering Congress (this means you veterans of the Medill DC grad program) is helpful as on days without lockups the position will entail assisting me in covering the political events of the day — possibly including taking pictures to add to our periodic photo slide shows.

If you, or anyone you know, is interested in the position send me a resume, cover letter and some (preferably financially or economically oriented) clips. Compensation and total number of hours per week are flexible and hours especially may vary from week to week.

Skillset: Basic journalism and proofreading skills are essential, as is a thorough knowledge and familiarity with print and online consumer and trade media outlets that cover healthcare, pharma/biotech and/or the oncology industry. Technical expertise with RSS feeds, Google alerts, and similar processes to produce the e-newsletter is also a must. Most importantly, we are looking for an individual who possesses solid, innate editorial judgement as to what is newsworthy and what would constitute the top clinical and business stories on a daily basis for our oncology-focused audience of industry professionals and physicians/oncologists as you monitor a broad spectrum of news.

Experience: You must have previous, solid experience in a similar research-oriented, news-gathering position, preferably related to the pharmaceutical and/or biotech industry; an oncology-related work background is highly desirable. Prior work history in a public relations agency for pharmaceutical clients; a cancer-related organization; or a print/online media outlet covering the business of healthcare would also be very valuable. A B.S. in Journalism or Communications is preferred.

How to apply: Please send your resume pasted within the text of your email to clinicalnews@oncbiz.com with a brief cover email telling us why you’re right for the job, along with your hourly salary requirements.
