The Free Job of the Week Newsletter

This is JOTW newsletter number 1,854


“Listening only to my instincts, I discovered superb things.”

– Claude Monet


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

***  How to Add Digital Transformation Capabilities to Your Communication Toolbox


Presented by Angela Lapré


Don’t have a seat at the table when your company is talking about digital transformation, “going agile,” or when exploring AI or machine learning technologies?


With some basic steps, you can begin to build your digital transformation acumen and demonstrate just how vital strong communications is to any successful transformation project.


In addition, it’s also crucial employees begin to understand these new technologies so they, too, can thrive in these transformative times. With a basic understanding of key digital technologies communicators can also be at the forefront toward increasing employee digital literacy, further establishing one’s value as a trusted communication adviser.


Many companies are zooming ahead with transformation projects. Don’t be left behind, and instead increase your professional profile and leadership skills by helping shape the future of technology and work.


Presenter / Angela Lapré: is fearlessly transforming the communication profession, with deep experience in both internal and external communication; reimagining the value communicators deliver in the (relatively) uncharted waters of digital transformation. Coupled with sound foundational communication strategies, the result is an unstoppable blend of positive business and cultural change management. Lapré has a bachelor degree in journalism from the University of Colorado and an MBA from the University of California, Monterey Bay.
