JOTW 50-2012

December 10, 2012

www.nedsjotw.com

This is JOTW newsletter number 945

 

“ I’m beginning to understand myself.  But it would have been great to be able to understand myself when I was 20 rather than when I was 82.”

– Dave Brubeck

 

“Too many people spend money they haven’t earned to buy things they don’t want to impress people they don’t like.”

– Will Smith

 

***  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.

 

One solution will be to create a new list and migrate all subscriber emails to the new list.  Please stand by for details.

 

***  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 11,600-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 11,607 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.

42.)  Web Producer (Temp. to Perm.), advocacy organization, Arlington, VA

OVERVIEW:

Brainstorm Creative Resources is a recruiting and staffing firm that places creative and editorial professionals into freelance and full-time positions with employers in and around Washington, DC.

Please read the job description below and/or visit http://brainstormresources.com/ApplyOnline/ for additional information regarding our firm and currently open positions with our clients.

DESCRIPTION:

An Arlington, VA-based advocacy organization that focuses on environmental conservation is looking to hire a Web Producer after a successful temporary engagement. This role is available because the person who was in it formerly was promoted.

Our firm has supported the client organization continuously during the last few years. We can share much more information with well qualified applicants than you will find below, regarding the hiring organization and the Web Producer role.

• The Web Producer role is that of builder, facilitator, and enforcer of standards with a focus on timeliness and quality.

• S/he is responsible for the day-to-day maintenance of the organization’s global website and affiliated sites.

• This position is primarily a web production role with important user support and quality assurance components.

• This position works closely with a small web team, the IT Support and Development team and a variety of internal clients, including international teams.

• The Web Producer will manage a daily flow of change requests. S/he is expected to learn the ins and outs of the content management system (CMS), manage the site structure, upload web assets such as images and documents and create/edit pages.

• S/he may also be called to meet with internal customers to make an initial assessment of their needs and to manage discrete areas of the website independently, as assigned.

• This position manages the web content publishing process and is responsible for training and supporting other users on the content management system (CMS).  This will include supporting subsite (small-site) deployments and working with our field offices to launch their own international sites.

 

• The Web Producer will also be an active participant in larger “all-hands-on-deck” web projects such as site redesigns, content migrations, information architecture reviews, user experience testing or functionality improvements.

REQUIRED TECHNICAL SKILLS & EXPERIENCE:

• Min. three years of exp. in web content management on a large public-facing website

• Understanding of web best practices and standards

• Basic web writing skills: should be capable of fixing a sentence, write a header, a one-paragraph abstract for a document or a teaser paragraph for a story

• Working knowledge of web content management systems (CMS)

• Basic HTML/CSS skills

• Ability to build and maintain productive relationships with a diverse group of internal clients to ensure that content is published on time with a high level of customer satisfaction

• Good organizational skills with a problem solving, “get-it-done” attitude

 

PREFERRED TECHNICAL SKILLS & EXPERIENCE:

 

• Four-year degree in comm., business, liberal arts, natural sciences or related field

• Familiarity with web design and web development workflows

• Familiarity with information architecture (IA) concepts

• Basic photo processing skills: crop, re-size, compress

• Working knowledge of  WordPress and SharePoint

• Interest in environmental issues

HOURS / LOCATION:

This is an on-site position. Hours will be roughly 10am until 6pm. The role will be defined as “temporary” as it begins, but we fully expect that the individual who is welcomed into the role will work a consistent schedule — between 35 and 40 hours each week. The timeline for transitioning the temporary employee into the full-time position has not been set. Our firm’s experience with the hiring organization is that they usually complete temporary-to-permanent transitions fairly quickly.

Our client’s workplace is easily accessible via Metrorail and car in Arlington, VA.

RATE / SALARY:

Brainstorm Creative Resources has determined a salary range of $35K to $40K for this position based on information that was provided by our client. Also based on the requirements shared by our client, we can offer $17/hour for the temporary engagement. Our firm typically offers a premium hourly rate –above and beyond the rate that would be offered for a similar, full-time role– to freelancers or consultants engaged in temporary assignments. In this case, the hourly rate for the temporary engagement roughly matches the hourly rate that would be associated with an annual salary of $35K. Our experience with this client indicates that candidates who can live with the lower temporary wage will significantly benefit from the tradeoff if they are hired into a full-time role.

 

The actual rate and salary offered will be commensurate with experience and general market requirements and largely based on the following factors: credentials as detailed in your resume, your interview experiences with Brainstorm Creative Resources and our client, and quality of reference providers and references provided.

 

BENEFITS:

Our client offers a generous and comprehensive benefits package to full-time employees. We can provide specific details to the most well qualified applicants.

APPLICATION:

Please follow these steps to apply:

1) Visit http://brainstormresources.com/ApplyOnline/.
2) At the top of the page, chose to search jobs in “Any” location.
3) All available opportunities will be listed. Please click on the appropriate position title.
