Weekend read: My weekly share on Twitter, with jobs and workshops

I hope your desk doesn't look like this (just one reason my office is nearly paperless these days) as we end the week. It's been a crowded week for me, but there was still plenty to share on Twitter, where I'm @dontgetcaught. Here are the tips, good reads and other items I passed along this week:

A couple of good communications jobs caught my eye on Twitter this week:

  • food science journalist--to be based in France. Seriously. It's for
  • New York City's administration for children's services is looking for a deputy communications director.
  • And, not on Twitter, a DC-Baltimore area client is looking for a short-term science writer for its communications shop, ideally on-site. Email me directly if you are interested.

This week, I led the first of the "Be an Expert on Working with Experts" workshops for a mixed group of communicators--the workshop began as a custom offering for one client team, but this week, we had participants from a research and clinical professional society and two universities, including some teams of communicators. "I recognized so many of my experts, but hadn't put it together in just that way before," said one participant. Another said she found most useful "tips on communicating with [experts] so they begin to trust you and understand why you take certain approaches to prepare them." Based on responses to the first workshop, I'll be scheduling another soon, so let me know if you want to get a direct notice about the next one. I'm also happy to discuss bringing this workshop to your city or workplace. Just email me at info[at]dontgetcaught[dot]biz.
