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.


Don’t sweat it.

If you’re like us, and job interviews turn your sweat glands into faucets, fear not — you are almost always a listicle away from some good tips.

Take this dreaded, armpit-moisturizing interview probe: “Do you have any questions for us?” Marie Claire just delivered a winner of an article priming you with 10 rock-solid questions that will make you sound really smart. Or, at least smarter than all those times we grunted, “Ummmmmmmmm … no?”

One more tip: Unless your arms enjoy soaking in a cold, wet pool of nerves, do not — we repeat, DO NOT — wear silk. Go with a moisture-wicking fabric. Your cottons, your merino wools. Keep your sweaty secrets close to the vest, people. Literally.

The News

Last week we teased a delicious new addition to our newsletter lineup; this week, we are delivering the goods. Sign up here to subscribe to Technical.ly’s new Culture Builder Newsletter, chock full of content for all you trailblazing connoisseurs of company culture out there. Side note: You don’t actually have to be a connoisseur, we just adore an apt application of alliterative address.

Under the news category “FINALLY,” the city government has launched an official portal where Philadelphians can sign up for the vaccine.

If you gig hard for the money, take a look at the return of the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance program and how to get an automatic $300 when you sign up. Applications close on Jan. 29 (three days left!)

Happy job hunting, friends.
