The Free Job of the Week Newsletter
This is JOTW newsletter number 1,767

“… Here I am, sitting next to an open window, on a balcony, (…), on a fiery day that I could also describe – but how to describe the hills, the tall houses, pink, yellow, white, and a real sea, not imaginary, of a dark purple color, without rolling waves, different from my sea (in ‘the waves’), but with ripples of the surface here and there, like those that cross a wheat field, or the back of a racehorse! … ”
– Virginia Woolf

This edition of JOTW comes to you from Lerici, Liguria, Italy.

*** 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.
