This edition of JOTW comes to you from Honolulu, Hawaii


***  Welcome to the JOTW network!


You are one of more than 5,970+ 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.

The Volume and Variety of Communications Work is Shifting, Finds 5th Annual Survey of Comms Pros






Ask leaders what “communication” is and you are likely to hear a wide range of answers, especially when it comes to the role of a company communication function. Some of those answers may be accurate, others not so much. Too often, leaders see communication as a one-way messaging function, for example. In the first of this two-part discussion, four IABC Fellows explored exactly what communication is…and isn’t. The conversation took place on Thursday, July 21.

Hi Ned,


Sharing for a non-profit that I am working with. Great group of people! Thanks.




22.)  Experienced Healthcare writer, contract position to be filled as soon as possible, Cancer Care, XXX


Earlier this year, CancerCare released a toolkit for employers designed to educate them about the unintended consequences of various utilization management (UM) techniques used by insurers and PBMs to hold down their prescription drug spend. The Employers’ Rx for Employee Protection Toolkit:  Best Practices for Prescription Drug Benefit Design is a comprehensive guide to best practices for purchasing prescription drug benefits that provide employers actionable tools to achieve benefit plans that balance patient needs with cost-saving measures.


We are now preparing to start a second phase of the project that will focus on biomarker testing.  The Biomarker Toolkit will include materials to help employers understand the role and benefits of bio-marker testing for people with cancer. There are many kinds of biomarker tests and new ones are being developed at breakneck speed. It is clear how UM, if misapplied, could hinder access to many of these advances. The Employer Toolkit’s inclusion of a biomarker component will help employers ask the right questions, identify coverage provisions that could negatively impact covered employees, and design plans that best meet the needs of their organizations and employees. It will include short videos, animated and/or whiteboard explainers, as well as 15-20 pages of appropriately researched written materials.


We are seeking an experienced healthcare writer who can help us develop the written components of the Biomarker Toolkit.  We hope to start the project within the next month with completion by the end of the year and a launch in January.  The work will entail working with CancerCare to develop an outline, conduct research for relevant data to support our position, and present the material in a compelling and understandable manner. We plan to develop video components (explainers and/or case studies), and we may include some of the research and writing of those components as well.
