Hi! You’re reading the Pittsburgh edition of This Week in Jobs (TWIJ), a weekly newsletter written by our team at in partnership with InnovatePGH and the Pittsburgh Innovation District. Each week we put together for you a slate of news and fresh job opportunities in the ‘burgh. If you’re not already subscribed, you can do so here.

It looked like a foregone conclusion that the shutdown of Tiktok in the U.S. would be another weird footnote in the annals of 2020. Would Gen Z find a new platform where they can make fun of millennials? Can dads ever find an audience for their newfound love of dance choreography?

Before we brace for the worst, Microsoft has rushed in to potentially save the day.

Anything can happen at this point, but that’s also the beauty. Lemonade can be made even from geopolitical lemons. While no one likes uncertainty, big things can still happen during unpredictable times. So if you’re looking for a new opportunity, TWIJ has some fresh-squeezed job openings ready for the taking.
