The Free Job of the Week Newsletter

This is JOTW newsletter number 1,761


“Man must rise above the Earth—to the top of the atmosphere and beyond—for only thus will he fully understand the world in which he lives.”

– Socrates


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?


***  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.

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

***  From Adam Sidel:


Content Producer for Live Event Programming (Full-time), advocacy and lobbying organization, Offered by Brainstorm Resources, Washington, DC


A well-established advocacy and lobbying organization with a focus on foreign affairs and national headquarters offices in Washington, DC is looking to hire a Content Producer into a full-time, on-site, staff position.


The Content Producer/Editor will write, produce and edit speeches, video and other multimedia content for the organization’s events, with the goal of advancing the organization’s political messaging, marketing and fundraising priorities through the use of compelling copy. The person in this role will contribute to the planning and execution of events across the country, including the organization’s annual conference in Washington, DC, national events, and regional events.


The annual conference, held every year in March, welcomes more than fifteen-thousand participants annually, from all 50 states and all over the world. Past guests and speakers include political influentials, community leaders, elected officials, foreign dignitaries, and heads of state.


Brainstorm Creative Resources is recruiting for this position at the request of the hiring organization — a group we have supported on an annual basis, on a wide variety of hiring efforts for more than ten years. We typically post salary and rate ranges in public-facing job descriptions (see below), but we do not typically include employer names. If you are interested in applying for this position, we hope you will allow us to represent you, rather than working independently to identify the hiring organization so that you can inquire with them directly.



* Draft, revise and edit remarks for speakers at events

* Conceptualize and produce new, compelling video content for various channels, including events and the web

* Contributing to the organization’s marketing and messaging efforts to both membership and the public, in order to advance the organization’s political and fundraising priorities

* Consult on planning of programs, videos and speakers for events

* Research new speakers and possible content to develop for annual conference and other major national events

* Attend, manage and execute programs at events



We expect applicants to have at least two years of clearly relevant experience. More is better! Ideally qualified individuals will provide resumes that clearly indicate experience writing scripted content for live events, or speech writing experience. We are also interested in receiving resumes from individuals with demonstrable experience writing scripted content for various forms of produced media. We welcome applications from journalists and corporate communications professionals, but we expect that these applicants will go out of their way to help us connect the dots — in other words, to make a strong case for how their previous work experiences qualify them for a script writing role. We encourage all applicants to provide brief cover letters, although it is not necessary to do so.



We are seeking well qualified  individuals who are interested in the following work situation:

(1) a full-time, salaried staff position with benefits;

(4) in Washington, DC;

(2) at a Metrorail and Metrobus-accessible location;

(5) starting in August.


As noted elsewhere in this job description, we are hiring for a 100% on-site, full-time, staff position. All work will be done at the employer’s workplace, which is in a contemporary, privately owned office building a short distance from Union Station. Candidates must be interested in working roughly 40-hours/week — typical full-time hours. During January, February and March of each year there may be some work outside of regular hours, including evenings and possible weekends. Individuals who can only work part-time or who are interested in working from home should not apply. The workplace is easily accessible via car, Metrorail and Metrobus and there are many parking garage and metered on-street parking options.



Per Brainstorm Creative Resources’ guidance, the employer has agreed to consider applicants seeking salaries within the broad range of $45K to $65K. The actual salary offered will be commensurate with experience and market norms. Brainstorm Creative Resources encourages it’s client employers to pay competitively. Highly experienced professionals whose resumes indicate substantial, relevant experience can expect that we will make a strong case to our client, to pay you at or near the top of the range. It is unlikely (but not impossible) that we will be able to support earlier career applicants requests for salaries near the top of the salary range.



Brainstorm Creative Resources is a recruiting and staffing firm that has been focused on placing creative and editorial professionals into freelance and full-time positions with Washington, DC-area employers since 2003.
