The Free Job of the Week Newsletter

This is JOTW newsletter number 1,815


“How terribly downright must be the utterances of storms and earthquakes to those accustomed to the soft hypocrisies of society.”

– John Muir


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


***  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:











Star-Spangled Mystery – “Great Presentation!”


I’m a PR pro with an interesting sideline: worldwide expert in the history of our national anthem and a musician who presents a virtuoso performance of the song — we all know how hard it is to sing. I am available to present this non-partisan program for your group. Please contact me for more information —  914-478-1233.


Marc Ferris, author of the acclaimed book Star-Spangled Banner: The Unlikely Story of America’s National Anthem, presents an engaging and entertaining musical history program that relates fascinating stories about the song and explores why, of all the options, this composition became the national anthem. Includes live musical performances of the tune’s original version along with others considered for official status. He has appeared on CNN, MSNBC, NPR, FoxNews, CBS This Morning and other major media outlets.


“Engaging from beginning to end . . . never a dull moment.” Lois Skelly, Program Coordinator, Croton Free Library, Croton-on-Hudson, New York


“I have put scores of scholars on stage and Marc Ferris stands out as one of the most distinctly entertaining of the bunch. His discussion of ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ combined thorough research, humor and impressive guitar skills in a way that had people thinking, laughing and tapping their toes.” – Peter Schmidt, CEO, Profs and Pints lecture series, Washington, D. C.


“People raved about the presentation and had a great time.” – Susan Stonesifer, Eleanor Wilson Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, Washington, D. C.


“Marc Ferris . . . did a terrific job of providing interesting background on our anthem and others. Great presentation!” — Jean Taplett, Vice President, Board of Trustees, Purchase Free Library, Purchase, New York
