“The price of greatness is responsibility.”

– Winston Churchill


This edition of JOTW comes to you from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.


***  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?


***  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.


***  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.


***  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.


***  This week’s Can’t Wait postings:


None this week.


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:

***  One Paragraph Pitch:







Are you biased? Of course you are and so am I. Hidden bias is everywhere in our organizations. It deeply impacts hiring, promotion, feedback, mentoring, sales, program effectiveness, team building, work culture, and the bottom line, Our brains make snap judgments and evaluations of people and situations beyond our awareness, control, or intentions. Too often diversity and leadership training focuses on awareness and sensitivity to specific groups. Want to help your leaders understand how they think and decide? What truly motivates their choices? Help them look into their blind spots? Want to help your teams learn how to treat everyone with dignity and respect? Contact me to today for a free consultation to explore opportunities for a deeper dive into human identity and how to inspire great work.
