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; it’s meant to live in your inbox. Sign up for the newsletter here.

A recent survey revealed that cryptocurrency ownership has surged by 61% in the past two years. Hard to believe that digital coins, once a niche payment tool, are about as common as a side of fries. In fact, Burger King’s recent promotion included a “side” of cryptocurrency with qualifying food orders.

But, in a season where shipping delays and out-of-stock items are the new normal, could cryptocurrency also be the perfect gift? Think about it — the form of payment is entirely digital, fairly plentiful, and can be spent on nearly anything.

So, with your holiday shopping list taken care of, let’s focus on your job search.
