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.

Alexa, play “I Can’t Stand the Rain” by Tina Turner

Not to refute Ms. Turner’s point, but isn’t it a relief when the sky opens up after walking around the city while the air feels like mud you can wade through?

Rain is a damper on some plans, though. What are the best ways to spend a night during a summer thunderstorm? Cuddled up in some blankets, watching a movie? A book, a lap cat and a cup of tea? Staring longingly out of the window, pretending you’re in a music video while your favorite breakup album rolling in the background?

There’s nothing to make a curious mind brood more than a dark, stormy night. Maybe the latest round of rainy evenings had you wondering about your career and where you’re headed. Luckily, TWIJ shows up rain or shine, and we’ve always broadcast a 100% chance for a light shower of need-to-know tech opportunities.
