***  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.

 

You are among 10,859 subscribers in this community of communicators.  While this number is about 800 subscribers less than where we were before the “troubles,” I think we now have a good list that accurately reflects the membership of the JOTW network.  Thank you for staying with me.
***  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.

 

***  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.

She communicates the client’s message with clarity and conviction and brings focus and organization to her projects.Her writing about complex topics is lucid and coherent. She has an uncanny ability to digest complicated information and data, and produce two absolute essentials of writing—crafting copy that is readily accessible to the target audience, whether that be business people, professionals or consumers, and achieve an outcome; in other words, her copy sells, persuades or informs to accomplish the objective of the assignment.

Ned,  great to get the newsletter. I haven’t received it for awhile. Did I just miss it?

Cheers,

Molly

***  From TD:

 

Ned you may recall that I have had trouble receiving JOTW for the better part of a  year. That included two intensive help center calls to my ISP which didn’t resolve the problem. Now I see from your current issue, WHICH ARRIVED IN MY INBOX YESTERDAY, that you are having some delivery problems. Whatever happened, I hope fixing me didn’t foul up the rest of your system!

(Ned’s reply: My real problems started on Oct 22, which is the last time I was able to send the JOTW newsletter by means of the Topica discussion list I had been using since 2002.  I am now on a new (for me) Topica platform.  I’ve sent several JOTW newsletter by way of the new platform, including the one on Monday.  Topica told me they had made some adjustments, and the Monday newsletter (and last night’s Can’t Wait posting which I hope you also received), were the first since those “adjustments.”  I believe we are underway on the new system, and I hope the service is reliable for you.)  There will be some new ways to subscribe and unsubscribe.  The new subscription form (http://www.topica.com/f/v.html?800183026.800116064) will also allow you to joing the DEFCON 1 and YVNS networks.

Who we are:

New Venture is a small, national boutique with a different approach. We focus on a small portfolio of clients, giving each one highly focused hands-on support from even our most senior team. We work with formative stage technology companies in the IT and clean tech markets, and we also work closely with a number of leading VC firms. This cross section of entrepreneurs and investors provides our team a unique, insightful perspective into trends and issues as well as a greater understanding of what it takes to build and grow leading companies. Our team is small and quick, with every team member sinking deeply into every aspect of every client program. There is no hierarchy, just a roll-up-your-sleeves attitude and approach with limitless opportunities to try new things and collapse learning curves. This position is a great opportunity to gain a tremendous breadth of experience without being put in a box.
