The weekend read

The bloom is off the rose, is it? Well, it's Friday, and I never promised you a rose garden. But I have a bouquet of beautiful reads, leads, tools and ideas for you, plucked from the garden that is Twitter--all things I shared this week with my tweeps. Stop and smell these roses before you head into the weekend:
Jobs in bloom: The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is looking for a communications officer focused on its programs to increase health insurance coverage for Americans...TEDMED is looking for a program officer for its Great Challenges program...an online campaigns and engagement associate is needed at the Natural Resources Defense Council...Mercy Corps (in Portland, OR) needs a vice president, marketing and communications...our pals at GuideStar are looking for some smart PR interns...the Girl Scouts of the USA seek a communications officer...and the United Nations Foundation is looking for a senior communications director for campaigns and initiatives, here in Washington.

A garden of learning: Registration closes today at midnight ET for my workshop on public speaking for introverts, which takes place November 27...I've extended the registration deadline for my December 7 lunch-and-learn for communicators who want to make the case for a training program for your experts, so you now have until November 30 to register...and registration is open--still at the early reg discount--for the popular Be an Expert on Working with Experts workshop, coming up January 10. Don't delay, though. Seats are filling for all three sessions, and I'd love to see you there.

After this weekend, there are just a handful more left in 2012, so let's savor this one, people. Thanks for coming to my garden this week, and enjoy your weekend.
