We’ve been having a discussion about how to recognize the 1,000th JOTW newsletter milestone.  We’d like to hear from those of you that have found JOTW to be a valuable resource and community for communicators.  We’re especially interested in hearing from those of you who have found a job (or two, or three); found a candidate (or two, or three), or made an important connection.  We will be establishing a webpage—appropriately called “JOTW Connect!” at www.nedsjotw.com where you can go to post comments.  You will be required to register, but hey, no biggie, right?

 

There has been a suggestion that we offer a prize or prizes to the most interesting comments.  So, if you have a prize you want to offer, let Ned know at lundquist989@cs.com

 

We’re due for an updated JOTW survey, and in the past we’ve offered prizes for people who participated in the survey (selected at random).  So you may wish to offer a prize or two for the survey, too.
