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.
Easy breezy, lemon squeezy
Friends, you know us. We’re pretty chill. We’re like that cool aunt or uncle who doesn’t act like the rest of the grownups. We let you taste your first beer; we go out back and take long, slow drags of our cigarette and refuse to let The Man get us down.
And so, in honor of our hip, totally laid back style, we’re gonna give you a break and not mention the coronavirus. Because we’re cool that way, and we’d never nag you to wash your hands — for 20 full seconds with soap — like other adults. We know you get it. Just the way you get that it’s best to keep a healthy distance — say, six feet or greater — from other people, and to share the bulk rolls of toilet paper — that will not at all protect you during the next few weeks — with others. And we’re definitely not going to scream “STOP GATHERING IN GROUPS, FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!” maniacally, over and over again.
Nope, we’re not gonna do it. It’s just not our style, guys.
Steelers fans, buckle up. We’re about to take you on a rollercoaster of emotions. Your favorite tech news and events site, Technical.ly, is about to embark on a yearlong reporting project in Pittsburgh. In partnership with the Pittsburgh Innovation District, we’re going to chronicle the economic change taking place in Pittsburgh through the city’s own edition of TWIJ (couldn’t you just squeal?) and deep dive reporting. To sign up to receive Pittsburgh TWIJ, click here.
Not to focus on us all day, even though we’re so very cool, but we’re also dying to tell you that our Technical.ly membership program has dropped its monthly fee. Now, you can reap the benefits of a Techincal.ly membership — with perks like early access to events, a lowest-cost price to our Introduced event and a monthly newsletter with special insights, curation and other treats — for free. All we ask in return is that you fill out this Technical.ly Employment Survey so that we can continue delivering impactful career guidance.
And for those of you who are newly, or have always been, working from home these days, here’s a bit of advice from those who’ve been there, done that to keep you from going insane in the membrane.
