This Week in Jobs DMV: A Higher Power Edition

Feline forces, jobs and more.


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.

Look into the Fur-ture

Let’s start with a quote: “I recently found out that I could read animals.”

That’s from self-proclaimed “pet finder” Nancy Mello — described “psychic,” “medium,” or “clairvoyant” who reportedly helped D.C. resident Jennifer Carl find her 19-pound(!) pet cat, Willow, after he was stolen along with her car at a gas station alongside the New Jersey Turnpike.

Here’s hoping mystical forces help push you toward your career destiny this week.

The News is inviting you to join Culture Builder, a new curated weekly newsletter focused on growing powerful teams and dynamic workplace cultures. We’ll share our reporting and resources from around the world on real tips, advice and insight into how workplaces can be more effective, productive and happy.

Who is an “investor?” How is that image and identity changing? Do you need to be familiar with stonks? Pam Kostka, CEO of All Raise, and investor, entrepreneur and diversity advocate Tracy Chou, joined the latest episode of Off the Sidelines,’s investor education podcast.

Everything old is new again: Los Angeles-based Jurny will integrate its tech and management services to operate Baltimore’s legendary Hotel Brexton. Built in 1881, the 25-unit boutique hotel has incorporated Jurny tools for contactless guest experiences.

The Jobs





The End

As the Post story points out, Mello the pet finder lives in, fittingly, Mystic, Connecticut.

Good luck out there on the job hunt, trust your intuitions, and stay safe!
