The Free Job of the Week Newsletter

This is JOTW newsletter number 1,853


“You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drip and it can crash. Become like water my friend….”

— Bruce Lee


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


***  The 2020 Job of the Week Communication Survey Review



IABC Heritage Region, in conjunction with DC Metro & Philadelphia Chapters


Register today for our next professional development webinar, taking place Thursday, June 18, at noon, when IABC Fellow Ned Lundquist, editor and publisher of the Job of the Week (JOTW) newsletter, and Frank Strong, founder and president of Sword and the Script Media, join forces to present results from this year’s JOTW Communication Survey.


The 2020 survey examines top issues, trends and best practices that affect communication, public relations and public affairs in today’s workforce. The discussion will cover:

  • Effects of partisan politics
  • Budget and challenges
  • State of media relations
  • Media bias and PR ethics
  • Top PR and comms tactics
  • PR measurement
  • Demographics


The webinar will be moderated by Steve Lubetkin, IABC Philadelphia chapter member and managing partner of The Lubetkin Media Companies.


Timely and Timeless Insights

This session will update us on attitudes in an industry that was already facing multiple challenges even before the global pandemic began this year. Survey results over the past three years provide much more than industry trends. Some of the findings are especially timely, while others are timeless in dealing with universal communication challenges.

Register today.

***  Your JOTW alternate selections for this week:


101.)  Fisheries Technician 5, Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks, Kalispell, MT


102.)  Alaska Shellfish Observer, Saltwater Inc. / Kodiak, AK


Alaska crab observers collect biological data while living aboard commercial crab boats fishing in the Bering Sea. The Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) uses observer data to monitor crab populations, set catch limits, and monitor interactions with protected seabirds, fish, and corals.

The Bering Sea is a highly productive ecosystem which is home to enormous fish resources as well as many marine mammal and bird species. In addition, observers are likely to witness a wide array of specimens coming up in the crab pots, including starfish, halibut, Pacific cod, sponges, algae and more. Observer data is critical to ensuring the sustainability of it all.

Boats in the crab fleet range in size from 80-foot catcher vessels to 300-foot catcher/processors. Conditions vary widely — but all require observers to be flexible, resourceful, able to work long hours and do heavy lifting (up to 50 pounds). The workday is determined by the vessel’s fishing schedule and can range from 5-15 hours a day.  Most of the assignments are based out of Dutch Harbor, St. Paul, King Cove or Akutan, Alaska.  Trips can last from 5 to 30 days and multiple back-to-back deployments are not uncommon.

Observer contracts are typically for 90 to 120 days and can often be renewed many times.  As with all our programs, we encourage—and reward—repeat contracts. For more details on the program and observer requirements, see the summary on right or visit the the ADF&G site.




Shellfish observers collect biological data while living aboard commercial fishing vessels working in the North Pacific Ocean and eastern Bering Sea. Working conditions on fishing boats vary widely but all are almost always challenging in Alaska, where cold, wet weather is the norm. Biologists typically work out on an open deck, often for hours at a time, sometimes through the night. Observers must be flexible and resourceful in establishing a sampling station and sampling methods, and capable of heavy lifting. Detail oriented self-starters excel in this job. Sampling and paperwork often require observers to work long and odd hours, seven days a week. Shifts range from 5 to 10 hours daily, and it’s rare to sleep uninterrupted for eight hours. Observer contracts are typically for 120 days and can be renewed indefinitely. We encourage — and reward — repeat contracts.



a bachelors degree in a biological science

30 semester hours in biological sciences

a college course in math and statistics

a college course using dichotomous keys

U.S. citizenship




Candidates must pass an intensive 3-week class with a score of 90% or better. ADF&G conducts training courses in Kodiak in in September and December.
