This is JOTW newsletter number 942

 

“He only earns his freedom and his life Who takes them every day by storm.”

– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

 

***  Welcome to the JOTW network.

 

***  This issue of JOTW comes to you from the U.S. of A.

 

***  Note:  I am experiencing difficulties in sending the newsletter via Topica.  Please be patient as we work through this problem.

 

***  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.

 

This week’s Top Job:

 

***  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 11,578 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.

***  JOTW Community Conversation:

 

While enjoying a proper Sunday afternoon pub meal with Gloria Walker, we came up with a good idea.  Using the power of this network, we want to plan a JOTW community conversation—perhaps a global “chat” discussion over a 48 hour period (so people could come and go depending on where they are in the world).  The subject could be something such as “What is the future of our profession?”  It would be like going to a roundtable discussion, but virtual, sort of global, yes, that’s it, global, so a reeeaallly round table.

 

Stand by for details…although I’m open now to any suggestions as to format, method or subject matter.

Dear Ned:

 

I’ve been a faithful follower of your newsletter for several years and eagerly scan the jobs list each week.  Sometimes I even apply to said jobs, but sadly have yet to receive a response.  I keep hoping that some day my ship will come in even though I’ve never been a commissioned officer in the Navy like you.  Regardless, the list provides a focus, especially on days when I’m at a loss to make up my own lists.  Recently my email was hacked into causing my virtual world came to a very real halt.  Fortunately, I was able to use JOTW’s unsubscribe/subscribe feature (though I did have to write my old email address into the blank unsubscribe page and hope the technicians will understand why I had to sully the expanse of white space) and look forward to my accustomed listed life.  Perhaps much like an unbalanced ship I’m listing too much to the left or right.  Oh well.

 

Though I find myself personally and privately desperate as the search continues to ferment at 3+ years, my professional MO is Public Relations Specialist.

 

Yet what I’d really like to do is acquire a WPA-like individual grant (impossible since we’re no longer in the fourth decade of the 20th century), travel across the U.S. and gather survival stories of women like myself (single, middle-aged, educated or not) who have fallen through the proverbial crack.  This demographic, alternately invisible or disparaged, has been seriously impacted by the Great Recession and I wonder by what means women in this category are surviving.

 

Any passing thoughts on what continues to be an almost futile endeavor would be appreciated.

Thank you for taking the time to read this civilian dispatch.

 

Sincerely,

Andrea Kleinhenz
