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.

Fun fact: Pittsburgh is actually the only city in the nation where all its professional sports teams share the same official colors. But the adoption of black and gold as a symbol of the city goes beyond sportsball.

When Pittsburgh was officially chartered as a city in 1816, it also selected black and gold as the city’s official hues.

As many local folk can attest, streamlining the city’s official colors with its sports teams has its perks. You just have to put on something black and gold to appear to be a fan.

With all that time saved, you’ve certainly got a few minutes to check out this week’s job postings.
