The Free Job of the Week Newsletter

This is JOTW newsletter number 1,773


“The trees are in their autumn beauty, The woodland paths are dry, Under the October twilight the water Mirrors a still sky.”

– William Butler Yeats


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.

***  One Paragraph Pitch:









A voracious reader and stellar English student growing up, I’ve always gravitated to words, and like most of us, I love a good story. So I became a professional storyteller. That’s how I view my work in marketing communications: telling stories that matter to people, in ways that matter to them. Today we have an infinite number of ways to tell them, but they still have to be good!

I’m a dynamic professional and writer with five years of experience as part of a Chamber of Commerce team, promoting our area as an economic development destination while serving 2,000 member businesses. My work has included managing a business magazine, overseeing contract relationships, liaising with volunteers and the community, handling media requests and reporter visits, and more. I’m looking for a new opportunity in the Washington, D.C. area. Connect, learn more about me and view samples of my work at or
