The Free Job of the Week Newsletter

This is JOTW newsletter number 1,805


“All men were made by the Great Spirit Chief. They are all brothers.”

– Chief Joseph


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.


***  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

***  The 2019 JOTW Communications Survey:


Check out the second annual survey of more than 200 communications professionals surfaces trends and best practices in corporate communications and public relations, conducted in partnership between Ned’s Job of the Week (JOTW) and Sword and the Script Media.


***  From Tammy L. Nienaber, SCMP:



I enjoy your newsletter. Thank you for providing this valuable information!


The survey results are interesting. They align with what I have seen from my vantage as an independent communicator.


In your summary of the recent survey you conducted by JOTW and Sword & Script Media you indicated surprise about comms folks reporting to the CEO versus the CMO.


My take is that more company leaders are recognizing the value of communications beyond press releases. Communicators are tasked with aligning and engaging the organization through internal communications while also supporting PR and employer brand initiatives externally.


When communications is too tied to marketing, it is more difficult to keep a pulse on the broader business. Communication teams must straddle all worlds. This is exciting to see!



Tammy L. Nienaber, SCMP
