*** One Paragraph Pitch:

Dear Ned,

As a fan and subscriber of JOTW, I was hoping you would share this with other JOTW subscribers as something fun, and humorous to start their Monday. It is not a job opening, but related to everyone's heart health. The video was produced by Mayo Clinic Center for Social Media.

Heart disease is the #1 killer of men and women in the United States. Therefore, Mayo Clinic is encouraging you to watch its “Know Your Numbers” healthy heart awareness music video as a parody to “8675309-Jenny”. After just three weeks, this video with a catchy tune has been viewed by over 21,000 people. Please view here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kkps4XwvxK4 and share this healthy heart message with everyone you know.

Thank you,

Deanna Constans

*** From Blake Powers:

Ned,

Wish you could have made the Veteran's Day event at the NASDAQ MarketSite, as it was truly amazing. We had veterans ranging from a surviving member of the Band of Brothers to the young soldier who's surprise proposal to his girlfriend was broadcast on Fox & Friends.

For now, we want to cap the day off by seeing if you would be willing to let people know that Cooking with the Troops (cwtt.org) is looking for some help. These are, for now, volunteer positions. However, we hope to grow some of them to paid positions as quickly as we can while meeting our goal of keeping admin costs to twelve percent or less. One note: at our events, everyone gets their hands (and more) dirty, as we all pitch in to get it done. Titles and rank don't matter, achieving the goal (and results) does. Our vision statement “It's not about us, it's about them” sums it up.

Managing Director: We are seeking someone with a proven track record in non-profit management and growth to run our day-to-day activities.

This person will help us grow, keep up with regulatory requirements and deadlines, and try to ride herd on a growing base of volunteers.

This position reports to the CEO.

Director of Communications: We are seeking someone who can handle the rapid changes in the industry, has the skills and the contacts to make things happen, and has a passion for both communications and what we do. This position reports to the CEO.

Director of Development: We are seeking someone who can handle fundraising, grants, and all the other activities related to creating a state-of-the-art development program from scratch. This position reports to the CEO.

Social Media Manager: We need someone who has the knowledge, energy, and skills to take on this important and growing facet of our communications programs. Much of our growth has come from this area, and we seek someone who can build on that to take those efforts to new heights. This position reports to the Director of Communications.

Media Manager: This person will be responsible for specialized and traditional media activities. They need to have solid skills, current connections, and the ability to reach the right people in traditional media from New York to Landstuhl. This position reports to the Director of Communications.

If anyone (else) on the list is in the Lafayette, Indiana area, we are also seeking some bookkeeping and admin help local to our headquarters (such as it is).

Cooking with the Troops is an equal opportunity organization.

Despite any jokes made about the Air Force or other lesser services, Cooking with the Troops does not discriminate based on branch of service, gender, race, or religion. We do reserve the right to mess with bean counters and REMFs at any and all opportunities.

To apply, ask questions, or just tell us we are nuts, contact ceo@cwtt.org

*** Got a personal problem?

Hey, who doesn’t.

That’s why JOTW has in the past offered the advice of our own Pontoof, the pontificator.

Well, it appears that Pontoof is once again reaching out to sad souls deeply immersed into delicate situations that require a discrete and sensitive analysis and response.

If you are tired, angry, desperate, lonely, loved, wanting love, remorseful, resourceful or you just need a sounding board, you've come to the right place. Here you can (and will) double your sorrows, halve your joys. Bring all problems to Pontoof, an imaginary friend in these times of imagined woes.

Find out your future. Erase your self-doubt! Let Pontoof do the doubting for you! Send your problems of an extremely sensitive and personal nature and he will send to Pontoof, who will ponder your predicament and then pose a superlative solution. Use an alias. Or we’ll assign an anonymous identity for you. Ned is very discrete, and if Pontoof doesn’t know who you really are, then it’s all good. Pontoof’s advice will be shared in the JOTW newsletter.

Pontoof's Podium of Pontification appears in Ned's Job of the Week e-mail networking newsletter for professional communicators. You may subscribe for free by sending a blank e-mail to JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.

Like JOTW and the other really good things in life, Pontoof’s pointed advice is free.

Exploring the Future of Global Surface Combatant Fleets In a highly uncertain strategic environment, the ability to use the majority of the world's surface, and reach most of its population makes maritime forces those of choice for the world's main actors and their allies – and surface warships are key components of such forces. Their need to police the oceans against the dual threats of terrorism and piracy make surface warship programmes a crucial and indispensable part of the future maritime environment.

Surface Warships will provide the ideal environment for industry and naval professional to discuss innovative future designs and the need to keep current vessels battle ready through capability upgrades and refits.

Ned,

I noticed that the employer on this is anonymous. I do not ever recall seeing a non-identified employer on your list before. Without divulging the name are you familiar with the person, business or recruiter that submitted the listing? Your listings are so much better and provide quality leads but anonymous listings are something I expect to see on Monster.
