This is JOTW newsletter number 1,735


Happy New Year!


“Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, whispering, ‘It will be happier.'”

– Alfred Lord Tennyson


This edition of JOTW comes to you from Springfield, Virginia.


***  Welcome to the JOTW network.


This is the award-winning free Job of the Week e-mail networking newsletter for professional communicators, dedicated to the positive unanticipated consequences of networking, or as we call it, “nedworking.”  JOTW is a cooperative service.  That means JOTW relies on the contributions of its members, like you.  We share job opportunities, news and information about the job market, as well as swapping stories about life’s peculiarities.  We connect you with others who are like you, and together we help each other.  What a concept.  Did I mention it’s free?


***  I apologize for inadvertently send some unintended messages to the group over the weekend.


***  Our Google Groups list is now at 5,566 members.


***  To submit a job for sharing on JOTW, please provide the job title, organization or company, and location and send it to Ned at   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  This is designed to keep the size of the emails to a more manageable length.


***  The position descriptions and or follow up information on links to the jobs can be found at


***  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.  Just send to me at


***  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.


Be advised that I am transitioning away from Topica and relocating the list with Google Groups.


***  To sign up for JOTW’s new Google Groups list, send an email to Ned at and request to join the new listerv.  If you receive this as an email from, then you are on this list.


***  To change your email address for Topica delivery of JOTW, use the unsubscribe button at the bottom of your newsletter, and then subscribe with your new address at:  I will be discontinuing the Topica newsletter at the end of 2017.


***  This week’s Can’t Wait postings:


Can’t Wait jobs:  These jobs are forwarded to the entire list as soon as they are received, and do not wait for the Monday newsletter, and are posted prominently on the JOTW website.  Then they are posted first in the weekly JOTW newsletter.  Can’t Wait postings cost $300.  Contact Ned at


***  This week’s Top Job:


Manager, Communications, ECMC Group, Minneapolis, MN


(See below for more details.)


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


***  If you find out about a job opportunity in communications, send it to me (,   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.


***  Listing a position is free.  Top jobs placement is $100, and a “Can’t Wait” posting is $300.


***  Here’s the link for the JOTW newsletter on the website:


***  One Paragraph Pitch:


None this week.


***  Send your One Paragraph Pitch submissions to   You can pitch yourself or your business anyway you want, as long as it’s short and to the point.  You can include a photo, too! There is no waiting list.  And it’s free!  Submit yours today!


***  Changing The Terms:

In any organization, three percent of employees drive 90% of conversations. This three percent – the top influencers – don’t show up on organization charts and they tend not to be like managers. Find them, and you can make internal communication faster, more credible and far less expensive. The Influencer Scan from Changing The Terms will help you find them. Find us at
