The Free Job of the Week Newsletter

This is JOTW newsletter number 1,791


“All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.”

– Galileo Galilei


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.


***  Special JOTW Survey for Communication Professionals:


Thank you to those of you who completed the survey!


Congratulations to our winners:

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

***  One Paragraph Pitch:











Today’s professional communicators must be prepared to face the shifting media landscape of 10-second attention spans, smaller budgets and increased competition. As a Communication Studies major at James Madison University, I am seeking to apply my coursework and internship experiences to a company that is prepared for the future of “quality-made-quickly”.  The Goal is to deliver this quality while concurrently meeting your deadlines. My approach to work is grounded in the concept that the best way to bring people together is through effective storytelling.


I encourage you to review my portfolio and evaluate my work for yourself. Just go to to learn more!  Feel free to reach out to me directly on LinkedIn, via email at, or on my cell at (215) 933-8240. If I am given the opportunity, I hope to prove myself as a valuable asset to your team in the near future.


As a branded content editorial assistant whose work has appeared in the Daily Duke blog, the PRSSA’s Progressions blog, and in two issues of Madison, I also serve as Vice President for JMU’s Chapter of the PRSSA. After I was selected for JMU’s first student-run PR firm, Bluestone Communications, I worked on both the Bridgewater Retirement Community as well as the Harrisonburg Little League Association account teams.
