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.
A hearty thank you to our email subscribers who took our survey last week. And also, to everyone who didn’t. We love all of our readers equally, unlike in some families where there’s a definite favorite child (right mom? It’s OK, I know. I’ve always known).
As promised, we are doling out 5,000 pennies to the survey taker with the best answer to why they should win a $50 giftcard and what they’d spend it on.
It was no easy feat to pick a winner, as answers ranged from the witty (“It’s after Labor Day and all I have are white pants”) to the selfless (“I don’t need the gift card. I just like filling out surveys”) and then to the cold, hard, honest truth (“tbh, I shouldn’t”). Powerful stuff.
Alas, we did it. We are excited to reveal that the winner of the $50 buckaroos is … bum ba da da dum: Kristin MacLaughlin!!
MacLaughlin told us, “I just started a new position at a company that I was introduced to at a Technical.ly event. I would buy doughnuts for my department.”
To us at TWIJ, there’s no better success story than helping our readers land a job at one of the many incredible companies across our tech scene. Because in the end, that’s what it’s all about.
And doughnuts. It’s also all about doughnuts.
James Kent — possibly related to Clark Kent but you’d never know since Superman got all of the attention — talked up Chariot Solution’s paid family leave benefits. In the software consultant developer’s interview with Technical.ly, Kent shares what other perks the tech consultancy has in place to allow professionals to grow and live balanced lives. Oh, and it’s hiring.
Hey Delawareans, it’s not Christmas yet, but here’s a big, juicy present for you. Technical.ly’s On the Market column just posted a list of the five standout jobs at five top tech companies in the state. Giddy up.
