The Free Job of the Week Newsletter

This is JOTW newsletter number 1,877


“There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self….”

– Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961)


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


***  Welcome to the JOTW network!


You are one of more than 5,950+ 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 JOTW listserv.  If you received this as an email from, then you are on this list.

***  Ned’s upcoming travel, maybe, perhaps:


August 31-September 2, 2021, Helsinki, Finland




The corporate environment comprises the various aspects of work that affect employees’ productivity, including when, where, and how they work. According to, “A work environment is the setting, social features, and physical conditions in which you perform your job. These elements can impact feelings of wellbeing, workplace relationships, collaboration, efficiency, and employee health.”


Elements of a corporate culture include the physical environment, the company culture, and working conditions. Business analysts have made attempts to categorize different types of corporate environments, like “artistic” (promoting innovation and experimentation, as well as personal expression), “enterprising” (emphasizing guidance of employees toward goals), and “conventional” (built on specificity, predictability, and organization).


Can communicators help create the right environment for their companies? Can they help sustain an existing environment?


At noon ET on Thursday, December 17, four IABC Fellows will answer these questions and explore the various ways communicators can influence the corporate environment. The panel will take your questions in real-time via the YouTube Live chat function or via Twitter (using the hashtag #COF64).
