Editor’s note: Every week we ship an email newsletter featuring the region’s most exciting career opportunities. We’ve lovingly called it This Week in Jobs (aka TWIJ — “twidge.”). Below is this week’s edition. Here’s the last one we published; it’s meant to live in your inbox. Sign up for the newsletter here.
Let Them Eat Bagels
Per Se and the French Laundry can take a hike: A humble bagel joint in D.C. landed on Eater’s list of the best new restaurants in America. Call Your Mother — and you can be sure the owners and staff called theirs — was crowned alongside trendy small-plate bistros and Euro-themed wine-bars, buoyed by classic bagel sandwich combos, fresh black-and-whites and babka and apparently “the city’s best latke.”
The weekend wait is already often an hour long — and sure to get longer with the latest award. Spend your time in line browsing the job listings before getting your schmear on:
Start practicing that elevator pitch: Black Girl Ventures, an event series founded by D.C. entrepreneur Shelly Bell as “part-pitch competition, part-crowdfunding campaign,” is returning home for its first pitch bootcamp in the District. The two-day workshop runs from Aug. 10 to 11 at the Corcoran School of the Arts & Design at The George Washington University. Attendees will create a pitch deck, practice pitching, learn how to apply for pitch competitions and gain access to a network of founders and investors.
And listen up, Marines: Northern Virginia Community College is rolling out courses this fall in data intelligence, cloud computing, data analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence. The courses are being formed in partnership with Amazon Web Services, and though the courses are being introduced for the Marines Corps, you don’t need to be wearing green to enroll: Civilians can sign up for the classes, too.
