The Free Job of the Week Newsletter

This is JOTW newsletter number 1,844


“Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”

– Francis of Assisi


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


***  Welcome to the JOTW network!


You will note some comments below regarding the Special March 32nd edition, which has become a JOTW annual tradition.  I wish to acknowledge the contributions of Mike Sorohan, for this year’s special issue and in years past.


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:


None this week.

Bob Grupp has sent this note regarding the conference and the current global health situation:


I am hopeful that by June, with the arrival of Spring and success with current mitigation efforts, the outbreak of COVID-19 will have subsided and that StratCommWorld 2020 can convene on June 1-2 in Washington, D.C.


Timing may be everything. With so many events cancelled for 30- to 60-days, we may have a unique opportunity at StratCommWorld. If the situation improves by June as we all hope, and StratCommWorld convenes as scheduled, then we want to be ready. So, we are actively seeking additional speakers and topics that will maximize learning from this unprecedented global crisis.


We are in contact with the Press Club which has been closely monitoring concerns surrounding coronavirus. The safety and security of the Press Club’s business clients like us, guests and staff have been and always will be their top priority.


If government regulations, Press Club decisions or common-sense dictate, we will postpone and reschedule StratCommWorld to another date.


Meanwhile, we will continue monitoring the situation as it unfolds, and hope and pray for a speedy conclusion to the flu season.


Thanks for your understanding and ongoing support.
