This is JOTW newsletter number 943

 

“I am a man of fixed and unbending principles, the first of which is to flexible at all times.”

- Everett Mckinley Dirkson

 

***  Welcome to the JOTW network.

 

***  This issue of JOTW comes to you from the JOTW Global Operations Center in Springfield, Virginia.

 

***  Note:  I am experiencing difficulties in send 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.

JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.

 

You are among 11,599 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.

 

***  Idle hands…

 

Hello Edward,

You’ve been offline for quite some time. Is everything okay?

Best,
Antoinette

Hi Ned,

 

I think somehow my JOTW subscription was cut off. Is there any way I could have it reinstated?

 

Sincerely,
KJ

 

(Topica is down…for three, no almost four weeks now.  You can read the newsletter at www.nedsjotw.com.)

***  What did I do wrong?

 

Hello, I re-signed up for the JOTW a few months ago and was receiving them regularly, but now I have not received one since JOTW 43. Is there something wrong with my subscription?

Thank you, DE

(Nope.  You’re good on your end.  Topica is down…has been for three weeks.  Am investigating.  Please stand by.)

Btw it is a great website and very much appreciated!

***  Falling….falling…

 

Hi!

I haven’t received an email from you since October 22. Did I fall off your list?

Thanks,
