The Free Job of the Week Newsletter

This is JOTW newsletter number 1,830


“The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don’t want, drink what you don’t like, and do what you’d rather not.”

– Mark Twain


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.


***  Here’s the link for the JOTW newsletter on the website:


***  One Paragraph Pitch:


None this week.


***  Send your One Paragraph Pitch submissions to   You can pitch yourself or your business anyway you want, as long as it’s short and to the point.  You can include a photo, too! There is no waiting list.  And it’s free!  Submit yours today!

Bet Sorohan wins


Mike replies:


Challenge accepted;

*begins looking for words that

Rhyme with ‘quid pro quo’*


The winning entries will appear in JOTW newsletter (


Send your year’s worth of exasperation-alluding, pop-culture-mentioning, job-related-frustration laden, not-entirely-politically-correct, glad-it’s over creativity to Put “Haiku Contest” in the subject line.  Hey, it’s a new year.


Some (okay, pretty much all) of the entries received so far:


***  From me…to sort of kick it off:


You don’t do haiku?

It’s not generational

Yeah, OK Boomer


***  From Janna Cummins:


Hi Ned,


As a recent Texas transplant to Maine, I’m looking for where my next career chapter will go, which inspired my Haiku submission:


How can I use this

opportunity in vain

to find my next job?


May we all find what we’re looking for (or what’s looking for us!) in the new year,


Janna Cummins


***  From C. Turpen:


I feel the weight of

Liftoff. Centrifugal force

toward my future self.

  1. Turpen, 2018


My side eye slanted

toward ‘Dis City for three years.

Time to start anew.

  1. Turpen, 2019


***  From Jim Parsons


Thinking I could win

without tryin.’ But that’d leave

Sorohan cryin.’


***  From Uma Thangaraj:


Uma Thangaraj Entry No. 2


How are you today?

I’m great. Fine, thank you. Super.

Predictive text sucks.


Uma Thangaraj Entry No. 1


I hope this is the winningest entry – given the strict criteria and all.


The dryer repair man

Is on his way there

He brings a blast of hot air.
