The Free Job of the Week Newsletter

This is JOTW newsletter number 1,851


“You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.”

– Jack London


This edition of JOTW comes to you from  Springfield, Virginia. (If you received your JOTW newsletter late today it’s because I awarded myself a meritorious 96 hour pass and spent the weekend in the mountains.)


***  3rd annual JOTW Survey


Thank you to the 300 JOTW network members who participated in our 3rd annual survey.  The results are now available:


Frank Strong and I will be presenting a custom webinar on this survey for the IABC Heritage Region on June 18, 2020, at 12:00 p.m. ET. Keep an eye on their webinar announcement for registration details.  If your organization is interested in a custom webinar that assesses the findings please contact one of us.


We believe the results might have been slightly different if the survey were conducted later in the year.  The Coronavirus pandemic was taking off just as this survey was wrapping up. In fact the WHO declared the virus a pandemic the day survey closed.  However, there are some interesting findings, and we invite you to see how your responses compared to the others.




***  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.

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.

Seven heavily armed pirates attacked and boarded a general cargo ship underway. The crew retreated into the citadel and contacted the owners and IMB PRC. The IMB Piracy Reporting Centre immediately started liaising with the Nigerian Authorities and requested for assistance. Two Nigerian Naval vessels responded. By the time the naval vessels arrived near the ship, the pirates had disembarked. The crew emerged from the citadel and the Naval vessels remained alongside the ship until daylight to ensure safety and security.
