This is JOTW newsletter number 938, or something like that.

 

“I was 32 when I started cooking; up until then, I just ate.”

– Julia Child

 

“Cooking is chemistry.”

– Joel Robuchon

 

***  Welcome to the JOTW network.

 

***  This week’s newsletter is sent to you from the JOTW Global Command Center in Springfield, Virginia.

 

***  To post a job, just send the position, organization and location with a link or contact info for follow-up or replying to Ned at lundquist989@cs,ciom.  Posting a job is free.  Jobs will be sent out in the free weekly newsletter, which usually comes out on Mondays for free.  The newsletter, with all of these great employment opportunities, is then posted for free at www.nedsjotw.com, which is a free website.  Recruiters can submit up to three jobs for free.  Each job listing may be posted once in the newsletter for free. Did I mention that all this is free?

 

You can send job or other announcements to the entire list of 11,500-plus communication professionals right away using the exclusive JOTW “Can’t Wait” posting for a very reasonable cost of just $300.  “Can’t Wait” announcements are also posted to the website (www.nedsjotw.com) and will be posted in the next JOTW newsletter, too.  So if you can’t wait until the next newsletter, or have more than three jobs to share, or you want to repost a position, or just want Ned to make a few dollars for all of his effort, then the “Can’t Wait” option is right for you.  Also, it gets immediate, high-impact results.  To send a “Can’t Wait” announcement, contact Ned at lundquist989@cs.com.

 

***  Top Jobs:  Stand above the rest.  Your job can be right here, at the top of the weekly JOTW newsletter.  Top job placement costs $100 per job per week.  To be on top, contact Ned at lundquist989@cs.com.

 

 

***  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.  Your friends can sign up by sending a blank e-mail to

JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.

 

You are among 11,585 subscribers in this community of communicators.  While this level has been pretty flat over the past year or so, this does represent an all-time high for the JOTW network.
***  The JOTW network is built upon cooperative principles.  Share, and reap the benefits.  And it feels good to help others.  I call it selfish altruism.  But this also means you need to contribute.

 

***  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.

 

***  The general JOTW policy is to submit three listings per corporate recruiter or executive search firm submission.  If you have more than three listings, I suggest sending out a Can’t Wait posting.

OutServe is a non-profit organization, with a network of more than 50 chapters of 5,000+ actively serving Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, & Transgendered military professionals who come from all Services and are stationed around the world – and our growth is exploding! OutServe is a leader in providing public information regarding issues that affect actively serving LGBT military personnel, and our print publication – the first of its kind – is distributed to select military installations world-wide, absolutely free!

The bi-monthly and online OutServe Magazine highlights the contributions that actively serving LGBTs are making to the United States military, discusses and educates readers about DADT repeal policies, and advocates for the continued fight for equality for all Americans. Our all-volunteer staff is not compensated for our dedication and work, and we are looking to grow our staff to expand the content and reach of our magazine. Our first electronic-only issue of the magine that was distributed in March 2011 only to our clandestine network of members, as well as released to the press, had over 10,000 impressions within the first 48 hours and was met with an overwhelming show of support from the public, the Department of Defense, and the Obama administration. News organizations such as MSNBC, CNN, Der Spiegel, Stars and Stripes, and Military Times reached out to cover the launch, and radio shows such as the Stephanie Miller Show had our members on-air to talk about the magazine, DADT repeal, and OutServe in general. Our September 2011 Repeal Edition had a quarter of a million views and our total circulation is now up to over 150,000 readers per issue. We are confident that our readership will continue to multiply with future print versions and a rapidly expanding membership.
