The Free Job of the Week Newsletter

This is JOTW newsletter number 1,827


“Old age and treachery will always beat youth and exuberance.”

– David Mamet


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


***  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:











In every job interview, I am asked “What makes you stand out?” It took me a long time to be able to answer that question. I now realize that everyone’s experience, including my own, is nothing short of unique. I took on a role as a supervisor and mentor to 80+ staff members in 2018. I was responsible for creating all 80+ staff members’ daily and weekly schedules and dealing with crises from severing employment with staff to keeping things running smoothly behind the scenes of the organization. This was all before I graduated from college. I took those transferable skills as well as my degree in Public Relations/Advertising and American Politics, and I applied them to my most recent marketing communications job at Aon plc, a leading global professional services firm in the Chicagoland area. I worked on developing the first annual CSR report, creating an executive summary for the COO and CEO, working with clients and colleagues around the globe to respond to urgent requests, as well as developing communication and marketing materials for both internal and external distribution. 


I am looking for a new opportunity in Chicago, Tampa or Rochester, N.Y. Contact me – Emma Landry – via and visit my LinkedIn profile (
