– Albert Camus


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.

As a communication professional, you’ve made a career out of continued learning and growth within the communications field. Now, show off the expertise you have honed by earning professional certification through the Global Communication Certification Council (GCCC).

Ned –


Hope this finds you well! First off, a very belated thank you for this newsletter, through which I found my current position at Systems Planning and Analysis, just over a year ago! Our strategic comms team is continuing to grow, so I wanted to share two more positions available.

I’m currently filling in on the first position and supporting the second, so I’m happy to answer questions about the roles and company. Both require an active secret clearance; the AUKUS role is based at the Navy Yard, with the other role open to remote options (or ability to work from SPA’s Navy Yard office).


Please contact me with questions about these positions at- or
