This is JOTW newsletter number 1,700

 

“What is a scientist after all? It is a curious man looking through a keyhole, the keyhole of nature, trying to know what’s going on.”

– Jacques Yves Cousteau

 

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

 

***  Welcome to the JOTW 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 lundquist989@cs.com.   Provide a link or contact info so people can check out your listing or follow up if interested.

 

JOTW is sent out on Mondays by email with a list the jobs posted in the full newsletter, which is posted online at www.nedsjotw.com.  This is designed to keep the size of the emails to a more manageable length.

 

***  The position descriptions and or follow up information on links to the jobs can be found at www.nedsjotw.com.

 

***  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 lundquist989@cs.com.

 

***  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.

 

Be advised that I am transitioning away from Topica and relocating the list with Google Groups.

 

***  To sign up for JOTW’s new Google Groups list, send an email to Ned at lundquist989@cs.com and request to join the new listerv.

 

***  To change your email address for Topica delivery of JOTW, use the unsubscribe button at the bottom of your newsletter, and then subscribe with your new address at:  http://bit.ly/JOTWSubscribe.

 

***  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 lundquist989@cs.com.

 

***  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 lundquist989@cs.com.

 

***  If you find out about a job opportunity in communications, send it to me (lundquist989@cs.com),   and I’ll share it with the JOTW network.

 

***  The JOTW network is built upon cooperative principles.  Share, and reap the benefits.  And it feels good to help others.  I call it selfish altruism.  But this also means you need to contribute.

 

***  Listing a position is free.  Top jobs placement is $100, and a “Can’t Wait” posting is $300.

This edition of DEFCON 1 comes to you from Cartagena, Colombia.

This is JOTW newsletter number 1,699

 

“Mutability of temper and inconsistency with ourselves is the greatest weakness of human nature.”

– Joseph Addison

 

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

 

***  Welcome to the JOTW 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 lundquist989@cs.com.   Provide a link or contact info so people can check out your listing or follow up if interested.

 

JOTW is sent out on Mondays by email with a list the jobs posted in the full newsletter, which is posted online at www.nedsjotw.com.  This is designed to keep the size of the emails to a more manageable length.

 

***  The position descriptions and or follow up information on links to the jobs can be found at www.nedsjotw.com.

 

***  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 lundquist989@cs.com.

 

***  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.

 

Be advised that I am transitioning away from Topica and relocating the list with Google Groups.

 

***  To sign up for JOTW’s new Google Groups list, send an email to Ned at lundquist989@cs.com and request to join the new listerv.

 

***  To change your email address for Topica delivery of JOTW, use the unsubscribe button at the bottom of your newsletter, and then subscribe with your new address at:  http://bit.ly/JOTWSubscribe.

 

***  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 lundquist989@cs.com.

 

***  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 lundquist989@cs.com.

 

***  If you find out about a job opportunity in communications, send it to me (lundquist989@cs.com),   and I’ll share it with the JOTW network.

 

***  The JOTW network is built upon cooperative principles.  Share, and reap the benefits.  And it feels good to help others.  I call it selfish altruism.  But this also means you need to contribute.

 

***  Listing a position is free.  Top jobs placement is $100, and a “Can’t Wait” posting is $300.

*** Welcome to the latest edition of the number one Defense Career Opportunities Newsletter, “DEFCON-1,” a networking newsletter featuring job opportunities and career advice for those who are part of the global defense, aerospace, maritime, marine technology and security industry.

DEFCON 1 brings you job opportunities every week, and counts on members like you to submit job listings to share and post in this newsletter.

JOTW 15-2017

April 10, 2017

www.nedsjotw.com

This is JOTW newsletter number 1,698

 

“Character is the architect of achievements.”

– Mark Twain

 

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

 

***  Welcome to the JOTW 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 lundquist989@cs.com.   Provide a link or contact info so people can check out your listing or follow up if interested.

 

JOTW is sent out on Mondays by email with a list the jobs posted in the full newsletter, which is posted online at www.nedsjotw.com.  This is designed to keep the size of the emails to a more manageable length.

 

***  The position descriptions and or follow up information on links to the jobs can be found at www.nedsjotw.com.

 

***  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 lundquist989@cs.com.

 

***  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.

 

Be advised that I am transitioning away from Topica and relocating the list with Google Groups.

 

***  To sign up for JOTW’s new Google Groups list, send an email to Ned at lundquist989@cs.com and request to join the new listerv.

 

***  To change your email address for Topica delivery of JOTW, use the unsubscribe button at the bottom of your newsletter, and then subscribe with your new address at:  http://bit.ly/JOTWSubscribe.

 

***  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 lundquist989@cs.com.

 

***  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 lundquist989@cs.com.

 

***  If you find out about a job opportunity in communications, send it to me (lundquist989@cs.com),   and I’ll share it with the JOTW network.

 

***  The JOTW network is built upon cooperative principles.  Share, and reap the benefits.  And it feels good to help others.  I call it selfish altruism.  But this also means you need to contribute.

 

***  Listing a position is free.  Top jobs placement is $100, and a “Can’t Wait” posting is $300.

DEFCON 1 newsletter for April 5, 2017

http://www.yourdefcon1.com/

www.nedsjotw.com

Issue # 501

 

“Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.”

– Albert Einstein

 

This edition of DEFCON 1 comes to you from Springfield, VA.

 

*** Welcome to the latest edition of the number one Defense Career Opportunities Newsletter, “DEFCON-1,” a networking newsletter featuring job opportunities and career advice for those who are part of the global defense, aerospace, maritime, marine technology and security industry.

DEFCON 1 brings you job opportunities every week, and counts on members like you to submit job listings to share and post in this newsletter.

 

***  NOTE:  I am migrating this newsletter to a new Google Groups List (Defense Career Opportunities Network).

 

When you learn about a job opportunity in the defense sector, such as a position that comes open with your company, you send me the title, organization, location, and a brief description; link; or contact information, and I’ll share. This is a cooperative network. That means everyone’s participation is required to provide job opportunities to share.

 

I never give out, rent, or sell my list, and neither does Topica.

JOTW 14-2017

April 3, 2017

www.nedsjotw.com

This is JOTW newsletter number 1,697

 

“Internal peace is an essential first step to achieving peace in the world. How do you cultivate it? It’s very simple. In the first place by realizing clearly that all mankind is one, that human beings in every country are members of one and the same family.”

– The Dalai Lama

 

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

 

***  Welcome to the JOTW 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 lundquist989@cs.com.   Provide a link or contact info so people can check out your listing or follow up if interested.

 

JOTW is sent out on Mondays by email with a list the jobs posted in the full newsletter, which is posted online at www.nedsjotw.com.  This is designed to keep the size of the emails to a more manageable length.

 

***  The position descriptions and or follow up information on links to the jobs can be found at www.nedsjotw.com.

 

***  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 lundquist989@cs.com.

 

***  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.

 

Be advised that I am transitioning away from Topica and relocating the list with Google Groups.

 

***  To sign up for JOTW’s new Google Groups list, send an email to Ned at lundquist989@cs.com and request to join the new listerv.

 

***  To change your email address for Topica delivery of JOTW, use the unsubscribe button at the bottom of your newsletter, and then subscribe with your new address at:  http://bit.ly/JOTWSubscribe.

 

***  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 lundquist989@cs.com.

 

***  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 lundquist989@cs.com.

 

***  If you find out about a job opportunity in communications, send it to me (lundquist989@cs.com),   and I’ll share it with the JOTW network.

 

***  The JOTW network is built upon cooperative principles.  Share, and reap the benefits.  And it feels good to help others.  I call it selfish altruism.  But this also means you need to contribute.

 

***  Listing a position is free.  Top jobs placement is $100, and a “Can’t Wait” posting is $300.

I have 25+ years experience helping people find, and get, jobs.  I work personally with clients on strategy, Discovery Networking, resumes, cover letters, interview prep, and much more.  I’ve worked with all kinds of Comm, PR, Marketing, CEOs, a wide variety of clients.  I’ll be glad to critique anyones resume, no obligation.  Here’s an e-mail from a recent client:

 

“Larry, FYI, I had a great phn interview today. Mark M / COO and I hit it off quite well I thought and I parlayed it into a face to face with him on the 24th. He will be flying in from Ireland to interview a few different candidates. His words were he was putting a short list together for this and I had made the cut. So far so good. The more he talked the more I liked the sound of the job. It’s a entrepreneurial type role as they are trying to build their customer base in the southwest region. Intel is the big key here and exploiting this is pivotal for them. Anyway, all things considered it sounded like a perfect opportunity and the money was no issue at all to them. He told me he would not be playing games over 20-30 or 40K for the right guy. Spending a few extra $$ for the right guy would be insignificant in the grand scheme of things.  It “Feels” good so far. Gotta get psyched up and prepared for this interview on the 24th. I’m sure I should be doing something before then, tips on that?”

“Of all lovely days, this was the loveliest, with narcissi and crocus reflecting the blazing rays of the golden orb, and the faintly ill queasiness of the pear blossoms causing mild distress not to overshadow the thorns of the cotoneaster, their fermented red and orange berries now stripped by birds who stayed just long enough to feel lustful inebriation under bending boughs, and the rotting logs and leaf mold bearing forth millipedes that emerge to feel the glorious radiant warmth of spring, and  bright blue, pink and yellow primroses in primary colors to awaken the herb garden, bursting forth with long purple stalks of lavender and woody bushes of rosemary, and lest the Lenten lilies should fail to hold forth to the solemn congregation, like chants, as once and together they arise to cheer the springtime and give glory to the Divine creator, the tendrils of the honeysuckle suspending the richly scented blossoms, which hung heavily in the soft morning air, such that she melted small and wonderful in his arms, she became infinitely desirable to him, all his blood-vessels seemed to scald with intense yet tender desire, for her, for her softness, for the penetrating beauty of her in his arms, the goosebumps, the suppleness of her young flesh, passing into his blood.  Ohhhh babyyyyy.”

Your job is to create pathways in our stores wide enough for a single shopping cart to pass through. Knowledge of merchandise a plus; engineering degree preferred. Resume to jobs@kmart.com.

 

23.)  PORCELAIN WIZARD, Nick’s Plunger Emporium, Metuchen, New Jersey

 

What’s the one product every home needs? Okay, besides electricity, heat, air conditioning, a kitchen, cable TV, etc.: PLUMBING! And today’s modern homes often have more than one bathroom (Can you believe it? Who needs more than one bathroom?), but also too often only have just one toilet plunger. I’m not going to kid you—this is a TRAVESTY! Because when that “moment” happens, you don’t want to be traipsing around the house with your pants around your ankles looking for the plunger—which is ALWAYS in the other bathroom! I’m Nick, the proprietor of Nick’s Plunger Emporium, and I believe that EVERY BATHROOM should have its own plunger (NO SHARING!). That’s why I opened Nick’s Plunger Emporium.

HA-HA! JUST KIDDING! We really want to sell you a timeshare in Atlantic City! No, you cannot leave until you sign this contract. We can wait ALL DAY. No, you may not have a bottle of water. Just sign the contract. Sign. The. Contract. SIGN IT! To make a reservation, call us at 1-866-HAM-ILTON. Must be 21 or older; if married, spouse required to accompany.

 

25.)  BANDWAGON DRIVER, the Chicago Cubs, Chicago, IL

 

The Curse is Over; the Chicago Cubs are World Series Champions! And one thing we’ve noticed ever since breaking that 108-year drought is that we suddenly have a lot of new “fans” who have jumped on the Cubbies bandwagon and claim to have been following the team since they were kids, even though they wouldn’t know Jack Brickhouse or Harry Carey from Steve Harvey and give you a blank stare whenever you mention Ron Santo or Ferguson Jenkins or Ernie Banks or Tinker-to-Evers-to-Chance. Your job as Bandwagon Driver is to help us take them for as much money as possible. Shirts, caps, cards, memorabilia—while they’re standing around celebrating “our Cubs” you go over and call them out and force them to buy Cubs merchandise! Together we’ll make them True Cubs Fans while getting filthy rich in the process. Visit www.cubs.mlb for more information.

You’ll be paid in Bitcoin. Resume to TinMan@RTFH.com.

 

27.)  PUBLIC AFFAIRS OFFICER, England, London, U.K.

 

It’s us—the United Kingdom. You know—This royal throne of kings, this scepter’d isle, this earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, this other Eden, demi-paradise, this fortress built by Nature for herself against infection and the hand of war, this happy breed of men, this little world, this precious stone set in the silver sea, which serves it in the office of a wall, or as a moat defensive to a house, against the envy of less happier lands, this blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England—those blokes. Anyway, we just told Europe to take a short walk off the White Cliffs of Dover, which is jolly good, but now that we’re “England Alone” for the first time since 1940, we’re a bit at sixes and sevens as to what to do next. So join us as we launch our new consumer spending campaign, “You Brexit, You Bought It.” Crisis communications experience preferred. Resume to: NoBrexPleaseWeAreBritish@UK.uk.

JOTW 13-2017

This is JOTW newsletter number 1,696

 

“The love of one’s country is a splendid thing. But why should love stop at the border?”

– Pablo Casals

 

This edition of JOTW comes to you from Accra, Ghana.

 

***  Welcome to the JOTW 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 lundquist989@cs.com.   Provide a link or contact info so people can check out your listing or follow up if interested.

 

JOTW is sent out on Mondays by email with a list the jobs posted in the full newsletter, which is posted online at www.nedsjotw.com.  This is designed to keep the size of the emails to a more manageable length.

 

***  The position descriptions and or follow up information on links to the jobs can be found at www.nedsjotw.com.

 

***  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 lundquist989@cs.com.

 

***  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.

 

Be advised that I am transitioning away from Topica and relocating the list with Google Groups.

 

***  To sign up for JOTW’s new Google Groups list, send an email to Ned at lundquist989@cs.com and request to join the new listerv.

 

***  To change your email address for Topica delivery of JOTW, use the unsubscribe button at the bottom of your newsletter, and then subscribe with your new address at:  http://bit.ly/JOTWSubscribe.

 

***  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 lundquist989@cs.com.

 

***  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 lundquist989@cs.com.

 

***  If you find out about a job opportunity in communications, send it to me (lundquist989@cs.com),   and I’ll share it with the JOTW network.

 

***  The JOTW network is built upon cooperative principles.  Share, and reap the benefits.  And it feels good to help others.  I call it selfish altruism.  But this also means you need to contribute.

 

***  Listing a position is free.  Top jobs placement is $100, and a “Can’t Wait” posting is $300.
