The Free Job of the Week Newsletter

This is JOTW newsletter number 1,775


“Cats are smarter than dogs. You can’t get eight cats to pull a sled through snow.”   

– Jeff Valez


This edition of JOTW comes to you from Orlando, Florida.


***  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:


None this week.


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.

***  One Paragraph Pitch:










First, the bad news: I haven’t worked for the White House and I don’t have famous clients like Katherine Graham or Jim Lehrer. The good news, though, is that I’m a corporate communicator with more than 20 years of writing and editorial experience on the employee side, and I’m searching for new opportunities. My background spans industries ranging from insurance and financial services to pharmaceuticals, and I’m known for writing to motivate, inform, and inspire target audiences to impact behavior during times of critical change, as well as editing to the highest standards of quality. So if you’re looking for a list of famous clients, you should go with someone else…but if you’re looking for a talented and experienced communications professional, see me at or email me at


Gerald C. Matics, Corporate Communicator

*** From Ellen Robinson:

3.)  Social Media Consultant for Clinical Affairs Division, National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC), Bethesda, MD

The National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) was founded in 1971 to “promote the provision of high quality, comprehensive and affordable health care that is coordinated, culturally and linguistically competent, and community directed for all medically underserved populations. The Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) awarded funding for one year to NACHC’s Clinical Affairs Division (CAD) through its Strengthening Public Health Systems and Services Through National Partnerships to Improve and Protect the Nation’s Health program. This five-year cooperative agreement is a continuation of CAD’s current work with CDC. Projects supported by the cooperative agreement provide funding to Primary Care Associations (PCAs), Health Center Controlled Networks (HCCNs), and community health centers to address key clinical issues facing health centers through innovation, implementation science, and health information technology. The projects use different approaches guided by internal and external experts including pilot models, proofs of concept, prototypes, and learning communities.

We are looking for a part-time (roughly 120 hours/total) social media consultant over the next nine months to help strategize with us to enhance our social media presence (mostly made up of health providers) to disseminate findings (action guides, work flows…) from our CDC projects to our clinicians. If interested, please contact Ellen Robinson at or 301-347-0475.
