The Free Job of the Week Newsletter

This is JOTW newsletter number 1,894


“Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.”

– Henry David Thoreau


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


***  Welcome to the JOTW network!


You are one of more than 5,970+ 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


***  The 4th Annual JOTW Strategic Communications Survey for 2021


The world has been through a lot over the last 12 months and one objective of this survey this year is to understand the impact the last year had on the role of communications.


Join with your fellow communication practitioners to share your insights about the profession.


This survey will take just a few minutes to complete, and your contribution will benefit the profession.


We will select three lucky participants who complete the survey to receive Amazon gift cards:


  • One $100 gift card;
  • One $50 gift card;
  • One $25 gift card.


International professionals are welcome to take the survey, but please note, to be eligible for the drawing you must be based in the U.S. and the survey must be completed in its entirety.


We have invited some top pros in the field to review the results and offer their analysis.  Stay tuned!


Take the survey today!


Thank you for your participation.


Ned Lundquist and Frank Strong
