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.


Door-to-Door Service

Demand for delivery has more than doubled since the start of the pandemic last year — with, at best, only mixed results for local restaurants, stores and delivery people. But a D.C.-based mainstay is looking to change that: The owners of longtime D.C. dive-bar Ivy and Coney have launched DC to GoGo, a regional delivery app that promises better wages to delivery people and lower fees to participating shops. (No word whether they also promise to keep your 2 a.m. jumbo-slice delivery a secret.)

It’s a way to keep your dollars local while you proofread your resume or work through the latest cover letter.

The News

Last week we teased a delicious new addition to our newsletter lineup; this week, we are delivering the goods. Sign up here to subscribe to Technical.ly’s new Culture Builder Newsletter, chock full of content for all you trailblazing connoisseurs of company culture out there. Side note: You don’t actually have to be a connoisseur, we just adore an apt application of alliterative address.

Big tech talks a big game when it comes to valuing diversity, equity and inclusion of underrepresented groups. But the sector has a long way to go. April Christina Curley, who made headlines when she spoke out against racism at her former employer, Google, spoke with Technical.ly about the struggles Black women face in tech.

Startup teams in D.C. should keep an eye on this opportunity: George Washington University has partnered with Howard University to launch the Entrepreneur Development Network DC, offering free instruction and mentorship on business development, market strategies and business models. The program is especially focused on bringing in local minority founders and women entrepreneurs.

The End

If you’re having trouble remembering the name of that new delivery app up top — or really anything else — consider checking out this D.C.-area class on how to improve your memory (shout out once again to 730DC for finding this one). Then again, trying to forget everything from 2020 sure sounds tempting.

Good luck out there on the job hunt, and stay safe!
