The Free Job of the Week Newsletter

This is JOTW newsletter number 1,794


“A good commander is benevolent and unconcerned with fame.”

– Sun Tzu


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   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 new listerv.  If you receive 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

***  One Paragraph Pitch:


Weekly Piquancy Report

Hot sauce aficionados armed with a fiery gourmet condiment approached and boarded an unknown number of tables across the United States. Led by longtime IABC member Susan Burnell and husband Bob wielding 5-ounce bottles of Scoville Warming Texas Hot Sauce, the flavor invasion endangers all bland, boring food. Visit to get some shipped out for your crew. Because everybody knows somebody who likes hot sauce.

029-19   09.03.2019: 1115 UTC: Posn: 03:57.2N – 006:39.0E, Around 32nm SE of Brass, Nigeria.

Pirates armed with machine guns in two speed boats approached an offshore support vessel underway. The Captain immediately notified the naval escort security boat which maneuvered to engage the attackers. One speed boat closed in from port side of the vessel and crossed the bow, while the other speed boat exchanged fire with the security boat. Alarm raised, crew proceeded to the engine room and all power was shut down. The pirates boarded the vessel with the aid of an elongated ladder. They broke into the accommodation, vandalized the cabins and took crew belongings and vessel’s properties. The pirates then proceeded to the engine room, kidnapped five men and escaped. The remaining crews sailed the vessel under escort to a safe anchorage. One Nigerian Navy armed guard reported killed in the exchange of fire between the naval security boat and the pirates. Investigations ongoing.


028-19   25.02.2019: 1106 UTC: Posn: 03:43.1S – 114:26.3E, Taboneo Anchorage, Indonesia.

Duty watchman on routine rounds onboard an anchored bulk carrier noticed two robbers attempting to board via the anchor chain. He immediately informed the OOW who raised the alarm and crew mustered. Seeing the crew alertness, the robbers retreated into their waiting skiff and escaped. Incident reported to Taboneo Port Control.


027-19   10.03.2019: 0430 UTC: Posn: 00:03.5N – 050:57.8W, Macapa Anchorage, Brazil.

Two robbers armed with knives boarded an anchored bulk carrier by using a rope with a hook. Duty AB on routine rounds spotted the robbers and immediately informed the OOW, who raised the alarm. PA announcement made and all crew mustered. Seeing the alerted crew, the robbers escaped without stealing anything. Incident was reported to Port Authorities.


026-19   03.03.2019: 1940 UTC: Posn: 05:52N – 001:24E, Around 17nm SSE of Lome, Togo.

Armed pirates attack and boarded a product tanker underway. Alarm raised and crew mustered in the citadel. On taking the headcount, four crew were identified as missing. Upon receiving a MAYDAY message from the Master, the IMB Piracy Reporting Centre (PRC) immediately informed the Togo Authorities. A naval patrol boat was dispatched to assist the tanker. The IMB PRC continued to liaise with the Authorities and the Owners until the naval patrol boat arrived at the location of the tanker and the crew emerged from the citadel. On searching the ship one crew was found hiding in a compartment. The tanker was escorted to Lome anchorage for further investigations. Three crew remain missing.
