*** One Paragraph Pitch:

“Why HER and Not ME?” Is that what your colleagues or clients say when someone is quoted in the media in THEIR field of expertise? You know the answer: a PR pro connected the source with the reporter, established their expertise and provided timely insights with business impact. I'm a NYC-based Communications professional with Wall Street, law firm, accounting, small business and nonprofit experience. As a one-person PR/MarCom Department, a consultant or a team member, I've promoted the bottom-line-driven perspectives of executives to targeted audiences through proactive media outreach, client newsletters, conference presentations, marketing literature, blogs and digital content, among other formats. My words have generated news coverage, including front-page stories in The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, leading to new business, sometimes millions and hundreds of millions of dollars. When you are not in the news, someone else is taking your air time and clients are not learning how you can help them save time, save money or make money. Espanol et francais. Let's become better acquainted soon to generate good news — and clients — for your business.

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.

2.) Senior Strategic Communication Assessment Analyst, Headquarters, Department of the Army Office of the Chief of Public Affairs, L-3 MPRI, Washington, DC

Background. The requiring organization is the Headquarters, Department of the Army Office of the Chief of Public Affairs. Its mission includes keeping various internal and external audiences of diverse backgrounds and viewpoints informed on Army programs, operations and policy. The Chief of Public Affairs is responsible for ensuring communication/public affairs enhances understanding, trust, confidence, and advocacy for the Army. Communicating effectively to audiences on whom the Army’s success depends is essential to public and congressional support, especially in a resource constrained environment. The Army must not only create and implement communication programs and products (outputs), but also develop and carry out means for measuring and reporting communication/public affairs results (outcomes).

Position Description. L-3 MPRI is seeking a Strategic Communication Assessment Analyst to help the Army’s Office of the Chief of Public Affairs measure and analyze the data-driven results of its communication/public affairs efforts with a view toward continuously improving how well the Army tells its story. The Analyst will develop and execute strategies and tactics for measuring the effects of Army communication across the entire spectrum of media outreach, community relations, and direct communication. The Analyst will define measures of effectiveness (MoE) and associated metrics, and conceive, develop, and implement strategic-level methodologies, processes, and products for assessing the outcomes achieved by internal and external Army communication programs. The Analyst will prepare executive-level presentations for reporting these communication assessments to senior leaders. The Analyst will apply strategic and tactical level communication and media results analysis to support Army senior leaders, communication planners, the OCPA Media Relations Division, and other OCPA divisions. The Analyst will continuously monitor both the strategic and communication environments for customer-relevant issues, threats, and opportunities and provide strategic insight and recommendations for aligning resources, improving communication effectiveness, and achieving strategic communication goals and objectives. The Analyst will support and assist OCPA leadership in the Army Communication Working Group process. Execution must be in compliance with U.S. law, DoD policy and assessment guidance provided by Army Senior Leadership and the Chief of Public Affairs.

Success in the position is characterized by:

• Goals and objectives for all significant communication campaigns/plans are measurable, data-driven, and agreed to by stakeholders. They will answer the, “so what?” question.

• OCPA has developed a clear idea, supported by data, of communication strategies and tactics that work in most situations and those that do not.

• OCPA can prove to Army senior leaders, usually with hard data, the impact that communication/public affairs is having in connection with addressing a particular issue, achieving a major goal, or solving a significant problem (such as raising awareness, improving understanding, generating interest, gaining support/preference, causing desired action).

• Low- and no-cost Army resources outside of OCPA related to communication assessment have been secured and put to maximum use.

• OCPA’s communication planners are incorporating measurement in their communication strategies.

• Communication planners and the proponent organizations they work with have become “addicted to the numbers” that describe communication results.

Specific tasks include: Serve as the Army’s communication measurement expert — capable of providing analytical expertise in understanding the character, nature and trends of communication in this age of information, particularly with the emergence of social or new media. Provide expertise and work with communication campaign leads to develop metrics to measure the effects of individual Army communication initiatives. Research, review and assess current or traditional Army communication methods and strategies to determine effectiveness. Develop, utilize and assess appropriate low- or no-cost metrics to support findings and recommendations that inform the communication/public affairs way ahead. Analyze policy, strategy, processes, principles and methodologies, recommending communication strategies that will achieve the most impact in the least time. Manage and facilitate working groups with appropriate Army subject matter experts to develop and implement effective metric-based tracking of Army communication efforts. The Analyst will conduct research, analysis and trend studies of various communication channels and methods, and make recommendations for improvement. This research and analysis must also include other communication systems and programs that are related to and directly impact Army Public Affairs initiatives, such as information technology, and analysis of public opinion polls that mention the U.S. Army. Establish working relationships with and garner cooperation and support from other applicable Army organizations, such as the Army Research Institute and the Center for Army Analysis.

Qualifications. The successful candidate must have five or more year’s experience in strategic communication research, analysis and assessment using relevant tools, techniques and procedures, with at least two years of demonstrated experience in performing communication assessments at the enterprise level.

Knowledge and expertise of social science methodologies including survey methods and analysis is essential. Prior DoD, US Government, Army or Joint Staff experience is a plus with knowledge of applicable laws and regulations governing Army Public Affairs Programs. Relevant experience in a public relations firm that is serving or has served government clients would also be a plus. An Operational Research and Systems Analysis background or credential is a plus. Candidate will have excellent oral and written communication skills, diplomacy, tact and the demonstrated ability to interact with and respond to senior leaders.

72.) Senior Account Executive, Gregory FCA, Ardmore, PA

I am pumped about 2012 here at Gregory FCA. We have a mountain of new

work coming through the doors. And I am looking for our next impact

player to join the team. But, as I say 20 times a day, public relations

has changed more in the past three years than in the last 20. I am

looking for someone who knows it, practices it, and can engage audiences

on every level, through the media but also through new emerging digital

channels. Here's the job description:

We are looking for Gregory FCA's next awesome senior account executive.

This person must have a mix of strategic and tactical. A doer. Full of

excitement and eager.

We want someone who is passionate about communications, technology,

tablets, new apps, and digital communications tools. We have decided to

only associate the firm with great communicators who can write like a

journalist and speak powerfully and persuasively.

But also, our next hire will understand national news cycles and be

able to generate ideas, concepts, and materials that will be covered by

the press. MEDIA RELATIONS IS VITALLY IMPORTANT. How much does it pay?

We just concluded a national salary survey which showed that Gregory FCA

pays above average at every level in our firm.

This PR pro will need to be able to help our clients publish a wide

variety of relevant information and distribute it through digital

channels, including the obvious — websites, blogs, and social networks,

such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

But they also must be able to build and penetrate sophisticated digital

ecosystems peopled by online influencers (experts and individuals) who

have created an engaged online following. This new hire will be able to

connect with these influencers so they can positively impact a client's

reputation or visibility.

We don't want to hear about brand mumbo jumbo or the importance of

“controlling narratives.” That's so 2000. Rather, our team wants those

who can build followings and enhance reputations, and generate vast

exposure through the media and the media's own online presence.

We want someone like us. Someone who follows and studies both

traditional and new media. Someone who has their own presence out there

in the world. Someone who can teach us a thing or two, but who can also

learn — by the minute, by the hour, and by the latest on Flipboard,

Zite, or Google News.

If this is you, we need to talk. If not, there are thousands of lesser

agencies just right for you. But right now, don't waste my time.

Instead, reach me in any of the ways outlined in my blog. Make your
