– W. H. Auden


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

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?

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.

There may be light travel within New England depending on where the person is based for media training or editorial board meetings.


What you’ll do:

  • Translate CLF’s complex issues into digestible soundbites and talking points for reporters, producers, decisionmakers, and external and internal stakeholders
  • Conduct regular media trainings and prep CLF experts for interviews and other external appearances
  • Draft press releases, talking points, speeches, op-eds, development advocacy reports/factsheets, and other external collateral for reporters and stakeholders
  • Setup regular press briefings and/or editorial board meetings between news editors, CLF President and other advocates. Prep CLF staff for these briefings and attend when available.
  • Maintain strong relationships with reporters, producers, bloggers, podcasters, columnists across New England and nationally
  • Provide periodic media analysis for reports to Board, President, and other stakeholders;
  • Contribute to CLF’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.


What you’ll need:


To be successful in this role, you’ll need:

  • At least 7 years of relevant experience;
  • Strong writing and editing skills;
  • Experience translating technical, scientific, or and legal language into accessible stories that resonate with reporters;

  • Commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.


About CLF:


Conservation Law Foundation (CLF) protects New England’s environment for the benefit of all people. A non-profit, member-supported organization, CLF uses the law, science, and the market to solve the region’s most challenging environmental problems, from climate change to ocean conservation to transportation. Every day, CLF advocates stand up for New Englanders—in statehouses, courthouses, boardrooms, regulatory hearings, and community gatherings—to forge innovative paths to environmental progress and economic prosperity for all in our region. To that end, CLF frequently works with communities of color, and those that are economically or otherwise disadvantaged, which often suffer disproportionately from the impacts of environmental degradation.

CLF is committed to representing New England’s diversity in our staff, volunteers, boards, and membership and creating a positive, inclusive workplace culture where all can thrive. People of color are encouraged to apply.


Salary and Benefits


CLF offers a competitive salary, an extensive benefits plan, and an open, inclusive, and accepting work environment where differences are highly respected. The starting salary range for the position when based in Boston is $88,000 – $103,000 and $79,000 – $92,000 when based in a CLF office outside of Boston; actual salary will reflect experience and qualifications.

We recognize the value of work-life balance and also strive to create opportunities for growth for all employees through professional development.


CLF considers the health and safety of its staff members and their families, our guests, our visitors, and the community at large to be a top priority. All offers to work, intern, or volunteer with CLF are conditioned on the candidate complying with CLF’s mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy.
