The Free Job of the Week Newsletter
This is JOTW newsletter number 1,831
“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.”
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 email@example.com.
*** 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and request to join the new listerv. If you receive this as an email from email@example.com, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
*** 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 email@example.com.
*** If you find out about a job opportunity in communications, send it to me (firstname.lastname@example.org), 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 email@example.com. 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!

*** Announcing the JOTW New Year’s Resolution Haiku Contest
Here are Mike Sorohan’s last minute entries. We have a winner. Take your pick:
This year I resolve:
More exercise; eat better
For maybe one day.
Fresh from the dryer,
Your underwear clings to me
Like a scorned lover.
Where is Ned today?
Some airport in some city;
Going somewhere else.
Thankful for Spellcheck.
It has helped my career in
Here’s my One-Paragraph Pitch:
Will work for money.
Think Outside the Box:
Haikus were 5-7-5;
Now you can make them any length you want and you can even change subjects and mention Jim Parsons if you desire. Oh, and nature.
Chevy Focus Groups:
They’re “real people; not actors.”
Never would have guessed.
