The Free Job of the Week Newsletter

This is JOTW newsletter number 2,020


“We all have ability. The difference is how we use it.”

Stevie Wonder


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


***  Welcome to the JOTW network!


You are one of more than 5,800+ 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.


***  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:


Greetings, Pathfinders! I am Rob, a seasoned corporate communications professional with 15+ years of experience, embarking on a journey where communications meet unexplored territories. Specializing in internal communications and engagement strategies, I guide through the challenging landscapes of acquisitions, integrations and cultural transformations. I have successfully implemented Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging communications, fostering workplaces as welcoming as uncharted territories—marked by respect and inclusivity. Having steered internal communication strategies for employers with up to 350,000+ employees, I have collaborated with executive teams, charting a course through change management for positive transformation. As a seasoned guide, I have honed communication channels and messaging through internal communication channel audits. While my passion is internal communication, I have successfully ventured into external communications, unearthing treasures of positive outcomes. I am actively seeking a senior corporate communications role – internal or external – that beckons from remote landscapes. If you have insights into relevant opportunities or know someone in your network, I invite you to connect on LinkedIn – – or email
