The Free Job of the Week Newsletter
This is JOTW newsletter number 1,839
“If you hold a cat by the tail you learn things you cannot learn any other way.”
– Mark Twain
This edition of JOTW comes to you from Springfield, Virginia.
Note: There was a mixup in the copy posted in last week’s newsletter, and jobs posted from the previous week were inadvertently posted again instead of the new jobs for the week. I will include the jobs that were supposed to run last week in this week’s edition. I apologize for the inconvenience.
*** 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:

*** LAST CALL!!!!
Please take a minute to complete the 3rd annual JOTW communications and PR survey.
“The survey has grown substantially over the last two years because we’d like to ask important questions that aren’t being examined elsewhere,” said Frank Strong of Sword and the Script Media (http://www.swordandthescript.com/) and partner in this survey. “The 2019 report was viewed nearly 20,000 times, or about a 2x increase from the 2018 edition.”
This year, with input from good people like you, the results will be even better.
Frank has written extensively on the survey results, so you will be helping us to create and deliver useful content for communication professionals.
Today is the last day to take the survey and become eligible to win one of our valuable prizes (valuable if you could use a $100 gift card).
Those of you who have already participated, and those who do so in the next couple of days will receive the results of the survey.
You can see previous survey results at
This is important to me, so I am asking for your help.
The survey is a cooperative effort of Ned Lundquist’s Job of the Week networking newsletter for communication professionals (www.nedsjotw.com) and Frank Strong of Sword and the Script Media (http://www.swordandthescript.com/).
