The Free Job of the Week Newsletter

This is JOTW newsletter number 1,872


“Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life;

not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.”

– Khalil Gibran


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?


***  This month begins with an N!


Every month that begins with an N is “Ned’s JOTW New Member Month.”  And that makes this… “Ned-Vember!”  I’m asking each of you to reach out to your network of communicators and do a little directed “ned-working,” to encourage your colleagues to sign up for the free Job of the Week newsletter.    Just have them send me an email at asking to join the network.

Of the 5,900-plus members of the network, I want to specifically thank the three or four who generated new members last week.

***  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 JOTW listerv.  If you received this as an email from, then you are on this list.

152-20   02.11.2020: 2330 UTC: Posn: 14:22.9S – 040:42.1E, Nacala Anchorage, Mozambique.

Around four to five robbers armed with long knives in a wooden boat came alongside an anchored bulk carrier. They boarded the ship using hooks attached with ropes and broke into the paint locker. Duty crew on routine rounds noticed the robbers, alerted the Duty Officer and retreated into the accommodation. Alarm raised and crew mustered. The robbers stole ship’s stores and escaped. Local agents informed.


151-20   25.10.2020: 1735 UTC: Posn: 01:15.76N – 104:08.65E, Singapore Straits.

After the pilot disembarked, the Master onboard a bulk carrier underway was contacted by VTIS indicating that the ship may have been boarded by robbers. Master immediately raised the alarm and made announcement on the PA system. As the crew searched the accommodation and engine room, the 4th Engineer encountered three robbers armed with long knives. One of the robbers chased the 4th Engineer. Fortunately, the 4th Engineer managed to escape. Master was advised to drop anchor near Pulau Batam and two Indonesian Navy warships arrived. Indonesian Navy personnel then boarded the ship to investigate. Upon investigation, no robbers were found and the ship resumed her voyage.
