The Free Job of the Week Newsletter

This is JOTW newsletter number 1,868


“We set out to explore the moon, and discovered the Earth.”

– William Anders – Apollo 8


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


***  Welcome to the JOTW network!


You are one of more than 5,900 members in the JOTW subscriber 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:











A little about me: My name is Kathy Foster, and I started my career as a writer, editor, photographer, and even an art director(!) for trade associations and small publishing companies in the Washington, DC area over 30 years ago. This experience gave me a very well-rounded background in all-things-communications, from managing external resources to understanding my audience to an eye for typography and design. When I returned to my hometown of Wilmington, DE, I entered the corporate world. I quickly gained an appreciation for Public and Media Relations, Marketing Communications, Investor Relations, and Crisis Communications. But my real love is in employee communications. I’ve worked across industries and with various management styles and audiences, and I’ve learned the most important place I can lend my skills is in helping connect people to the companies where they work. I truly believe that you cannot have successful employee engagement without effective employee communication — and vice versa. And I’ve dedicated the last 20 years to providing both wherever I’ve been employed.


I’d love to tell you more. Please reach out if you think I may be a good fit for your organization!



Kathy Foster
