This is JOTW newsletter number 1,002

 

“Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.”

– C. S. Lewis

 

***  Welcome to the JOTW network.

***  This edition of JOTW comes to you from Helsinki, Finland.

 

***  To submit a job for sharing on JOTW, please provide the job title, organization or company, and location and send it to Ned at lundquist989@cs.com.  Provide a link or contact info so people can check out your listing or follow up if interested.

 

JOTW is sent out on Mondays by email with a list the jobs posted in the full newsletter, which is posted online at www.nedsjotw.com.  This is designed to keep the size of the emails to a more manageable length.

 

***  Posting a job is free.    The newsletter is posted at www.nedsjotw.com.  Recruiters can submit up to three jobs for free.  Each job listing may be posted once in the newsletter for free

 

I request that you do not send pdf files that I have to copy and reformat.  I prefer you provide your very brief job description in an email rather than an enclosure.  I may limit the size of your position descriptions (generally to 500 words or less) as I have a size limit on the newsletter (HTML and text content cannot exceed 123 KB), which equates to about 7,000 words total.

***  This is a cooperative service.  It relies on your participation and contribution.  As you receive the benefit of this free newsletter, you should also send in jobs you learn about.  This is especially the case when there are job listings in the companies that you work for.

***  This week’s top job …could be your job!  Companies who need the right person now can post athe top job for a modest expense that will help pay for Ned’s next family vacation.

 

***  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.

 

***  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.
