“The world is a tragedy to those who feel, but a comedy to those who think.”

– Horace Walpole

 

It appears I had last week’s newsletter sitting in the queue but never hot send.  I apologize.  It seems I’m accomplishing at least one screw-up per issue now on a regular basis.

 

***  Welcome to the JOTW network.

***  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.    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.  Please limit the size of your position descriptions (generally to 500 words or less).  “Can’t Wait” blast email priority listings are $300, and “Top Job” placement is $100.

Two skiffs, one with six pirates and the other with three pirates approached a tanker underway. Alarm raised and all crew proceeded to the citadel. The armed guards on board the tanker fired hand flares as a warning. The skiffs continued their approach and as they closed weapons and a long ladder were visually sighted. The armed guards fired warning shots which were initially ignored by the skiffs. As the guards fired their second round of warning shots the skiffs aborted their approach. The vessel continued passage. All crew safe.
