JOTW 49-2012

This is JOTW newsletter number 945

 

“It is not the clear-sighted who rule the world. Great achievements are accomplished in a blessed, warm fog.”

– Joseph Conrad

 

“The science hangs like a gathering fog in a valley, a fog which begins nowhere and goes nowhere, an incidental, unmeaning inconvenience to passers-by.”

(H.G. (Herbert George) Wells on the science of economics

 

***  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 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.

 

***  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 11,603 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.

Ned, I stopped receiving these weekly emails…can you re-add me to your list:

 

Thanks!

***  “I DON’T LIKE SPAM!!”

 

Hi Ned,

 

I haven’t been receiving the JOTW postings lately and they’re not going to spam. Can you add me back on the list?

 

Many thanks,

DS

 

(Topica is down.  You can read the newsletter at www.nedsjotw.com.)

***  Am I off the list?

 

Hello Edward,

I have not received the weekly JOTW since this one on October 22nd.  I hope you are doing well.

(You are still on the list.  The trouble is with Topica.  Still working to get a resolution.  In the meantime, you can read the newsletter at www.nedsjotw.com.)

 

***  Something’s missing:

 

I just noticed that this was the last JOTW I received. I did not unsubscribe, perhaps there is an issue with the list? This has happened before (no big deal, this thing is so great I accept the occasional hiccup), but last time it took a few weeks to resolve. Assuming I’m still on your list but not receiving it, let me know if I should unsubscribe and resubscribe if you are unable to identify the problem.

 

Thank you and keep up the great work.

 

JL

 

Nevermind, just checked the website and saw your frequent messages that topica is down.

We are looking for volunteers to help run CentenaryNews.com – which is a not-for-profit social enterprise website that carries news and videos about the upcoming centenary of the First World War.

 

The WW1 Centenary will be a major event, both in the UK and around the world, and our mission is to provide impartial, independent and international news coverage.

 

The voluntary work may be of appeal to historians (either professional or amateur), journalists or PR professionals who have an interest in military history and the First World War, and who would be interested in doing this in their spare time, or who may have retired and are looking for interesting voluntary work.

 

The volunteers could help to edit the website (www.centenarynews.com), research and write items, carry out interviews, and upload content. There may also be opportunities for volunteers to take part in the filming of interviews and events. Technical training on how to upload content to websites will be given.

 

CentenaryNews.com is based at the London production offices of the digital media company Inclusive Digital (www.inclusivedigital.tv) – and has access during downtime to their computers, cameras and editing equipment.

 

If you are interested, please send an email explaining your thoughts on the project, and what you feel you could contribute, to: ww1centenarynews@gmail.com
