The Free Job of the Week Newsletter

This is JOTW newsletter number 1,843


“Talent is always conscious of its own abundance, and does not object to sharing.”

– Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn


You don’t need to hear it from me that we are in the midst of extraordinary events of unknown severity and duration.  That means that the economy and thus job opportunities are or will be in a state of suspension and uncertainty.  I have no idea if these jobs I am posting this morning will be valid in the days ahead.  All I can do is keep sharing, and hope for the best as we move through these next few months.


Feel free to share with me, and the JOTW Network, how you are coping with COVID 19.  If you need help, let us know.  We are here for you.  If you can offer help, please share.  Contact me at


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


***  Welcome to the JOTW network!


Today is one of those lucky days: 03/30/2020


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.

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

***  StratCommWorld – 11th Strategic Communications Conference

June 1-2, 2020 at the National Press Club in Washington, DC




Updated for 2020 and the decade ahead, StratCommWorld is the

new name for the annual Strategic Communications Summit.


With a fresh format and new venue, StratCommWorld builds on

a decade of success assembling a global group of delegates from

corporations, the military, government, the Intelligence Community

and NGOs.

Bob Grupp has sent this note regarding the conference and the current global health situation:


I am hopeful that by June, with the arrival of Spring and success with current mitigation efforts, the outbreak of COVID-19 will have subsided and that StratCommWorld 2020 can convene on June 1-2 in Washington, D.C.


Timing may be everything. With so many events cancelled for 30- to 60-days, we may have a unique opportunity at StratCommWorld. If the situation improves by June as we all hope, and StratCommWorld convenes as scheduled, then we want to be ready. So, we are actively seeking additional speakers and topics that will maximize learning from this unprecedented global crisis.


We are in contact with the Press Club which has been closely monitoring concerns surrounding coronavirus. The safety and security of the Press Club’s business clients like us, guests and staff have been and always will be their top priority.


If government regulations, Press Club decisions or common-sense dictate, we will postpone and reschedule StratCommWorld to another date.


Meanwhile, we will continue monitoring the situation as it unfolds, and hope and pray for a speedy conclusion to the flu season.


Thanks for your understanding and ongoing support.

I’ve been getting your job listings for a long time, and have passed it along to many communicators over the years. Thanks for sending them — I’ve always enjoyed reading them, but especially now.

Duty AB on routine rounds onboard an anchored bulk carrier noticed a small boat near the bows and advised the OOW. As he headed forward to check three robbers took him hostage. The OOW raised the alarm when he noticed some movement near the forecastle and the AB did not respond to his call on the walkie-talkie. Crew mustered and moved forward. Hearing the alarm and seeing the crew alertness, the robbers released the AB and escaped with the AB’s walkie-talkie and ship’s stores.
