Restaurant Week is Here!

If variety is the spice of life, then we should consider Baltimore Restaurant Week as the Old Bay of Maryland’s entire existence. For the record, I’ve never understood why it’s referred to as “Restaurant Week” when it’s longer than a week, but I digress.

The annual celebration features eateries all around central Maryland offering prix-fixe multi-course menus. It’s always great to have a variety of options … whether it’s selecting where to eat or choosing what to include on a resume.

You may not be able to offer an employer an extravagant three-course meal during your interview (trust me, I tried), but you can build your resume to give them a bunch of reasons to hire you. Don’t limit yourself, but be careful not to overdo it.

Give prospective employers a tasting menu of your background. Each item may be portioned small, but each bite will be delicious and memorable.

Now, let’s look at some news.

The News

Following a year of rapid growth, Baltimore digital health company b.well Connected Health announced that it raised $32 million in its most recent funding round.
