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.
The stretch between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day isn’t a period of time — it’s the working professional’s Mount Everest.
Starting now, we are embarking on a nearly impossible uphill battle, carrying the ever-growing weight of turkey and eggnog on our backs like rock-filled rucksacks. The higher we climb, the more dizzy we’ll grow, as weeklong Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales converge in our inbox, rendering us unable to tell which day it is. And in the most unimaginable of feats, we’re still expected to get work done.
So pull out those jeans with the elastic waistband, throw back a 5-hour Energy and conquer this mountain that is the holiday season.
Also, while we have you, take a gander at this week’s wintery fresh gigs.
Don’t confuse this new Philly transplant as a new form of liquid cheese: Wiss Fiss is new in town and it’s packing tech jobs. More formally known as WSFS, the Wilmington, Delaware-based bank recently merged with Beneficial Bank, expanding its physical locations across Philly, Bucks County and South Jersey. It’s still working on amping up its tech division, so now is a great time to get to know the bank and prepare for upcoming opportunities.
Swimming in dough and lookin’ for your next investment? First, well done, you.

Each week we’ll interview experts about how to get involved in startup investment, with a focus on the female- and minority-led investment firms that are creating more inclusive pipelines for funding. Click here for how to follow “Off the Sidelines.”
