The Free Job of the Week Newsletter

This is JOTW newsletter number 1,788


“Normality is a paved road; it’s comfortable to walk, but no flowers grow.”

– Vincent van Gogh


This edition of JOTW comes to you from Springfield, Virginia.


***  Welcome to the JOTW network and another year of JOTW newsletters!


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.


***  Special JOTW Survey for Communication Professionals:


Once again, we are asking the members JOTW Network about challenges, opportunities and trends facing communication professionals and PR practitioners for the coming year.


It’s easy, and you get a copy of the results, plus you may even win a prize!


You will have the chance to opt-in to receive a copy of the survey results to benchmark your own efforts.


Qualified respondents will automatically have a chance to win one of three gift cards!  To qualify for a prize, you must be a U.S. resident and complete the entire survey.


You could win:


1) $100 gift card;


2) $50 gift card; and


3) $25 gift card.


The 2018 survey results made quite a splash in the trade media, and we will be sharing our findings again this year.  You may read about it and say, “Hey, I was one of those respondents!”


To take the survey, please click the following link, or cut and paste the URL into a web browser:


The survey will be available for a limited time.  Please act now as the survey will close soon!
