This Week in Jobs: Tips for data engineers, city government jobs and good movies

Stay classy, San Diego — er, Delaware.

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.

It’s made with real bits of panther, so you know it’s good.

We’re not trying to sound like your mother, but have you gotten your flu shot yet? The CDC reports that it reduces the risk of the flu by 40 to 60%. And if there’s anything we know with 100% certainty, it’s that “60% of the time, it works every time.”

If you’ve never seen “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy,” that quote will make little to no sense. More importantly, it means you have not seen one of the greatest films of our time. Proceed with your life accordingly.

Wait. First read the rest of this newsletter. We guarantee you’ll love it, or your money back. (Newsflash: it’s free.)

The News

We got some hot tips here for aspiring data engineers, including helpful information like what the heck data engineers are and which free courses you should take to become one. Tech companies are counting on you to fill these roles. See what we did there? Data … counting … it’s a pun!

Learn a thing or two — well, five, specifically — about working in city government, and all of the opportunities for innovation that come with it, by reading this enlightening piece by City of Philadelphia Director of Innovation Eliza Pollack.

The Jobs


The End

Important information regarding the flu shot: If you tell people you got a flu shot, wince and grip your afflicted arm with your other hand, they will assume you are in pain and do you favors, like bring you snacks. Or sit down to watch a classic journalism film with you. You’re welcome.
