The Free Job of the Week Newsletter

This is JOTW newsletter number 1,847


“A clear conscience is the sure sign of a bad memory.”

– 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.

***  One Paragraph Pitch:









Greetings, colleagues.  I’m an optimistic communicator with diverse NY agency and in-house experience now based in Atlanta.  Rather than a “message point” push mentality, I uncover “mission points” that explain why a company exists for the world and then bring those stories to life in new ways.  At the American Cancer Society, my team drove a 20 percent increase in visibility over the previous year — with one-third less staff.  As a remote consultant, I’m tackling uplifting assignments with my core skills and values, but I’ve grown to be a more mindful networker, a more empathetic partner, a more insightful audience analyst and someone who brings unique perspective to the doing.


I’m looking to join an inspiring mid-sized company to drive its narrative and engage new audiences.  Let’s connect!


Thank you,


Brad Buyce

***  StratCommWorld – 11th Strategic Communications Conference

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




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


Hi Ned,


We learned that the National Press Club is suspending operations through at least May 16, 2020, and likely longer. Try as we have to hold out … this means we must postpone StratCommWorld and reschedule the conference in Spring 2021.  Even if Washington, D.C. and the venue were to reopen by June 1,  it’s not reasonable to expect that attendees and speakers are willing or able to travel or fly and attend a large live meeting in Washington, D.C. as soon as on June 1-2.


I appreciate your support and count on your participation in StratCommWorld 2021. I will reach out when new dates are chosen.


I am glad to have a clearer path forward, and we intend for StratCommWorld 2021 to be better than ever!


Warm Regards,



Robert W. Grupp

Lots of travel and adventure news, vacation ideas, tips and features.

21 travel/conservation/adventure jobs

Do you have any interesting travel and adventure stories, tips, suggestions, adventures or destinations to share?  Send to Ned at for the next issue of YVNS.


Fellow travelers and wonder-seekers…


I like to include content in YVNS that encourages us to get out and see the world, experience nature, and connect with our fellow human beings all over this magnificent planet.  This is an unsettling time, however.  My family and I should be in Singapore right now, on our way to Bali.  But, instead, like you, we are home and hunkered down for the duration of the stay-at-home directives.  For now, we can read about places we’d rather be.  And we can always dream.


Share your bucket list with your fellow next-steppers.  Send me a list of the five places you really want to go to and the things you want to do and I’ll share in the YVNS newsletter.  It’s okay to dream right now!  Send your bucket list to Ned at
