The Free Job of the Week Newsletter

This is JOTW newsletter number 1,819


“It is not infrequent to hear men declaim loudly upon liberty, who if we may judge by the whole tenor of their actions, mean nothing else by it but their own liberty – to oppress without control or restraint of the laws all who are poorer or weaker than themselves.” 

 – Samuel Adams


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

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?
