Hi! You’re reading the Pittsburgh edition of This Week in Jobs (TWIJ), a weekly newsletter written by our team at Technical.ly 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.
In terms of annual events or holidays, “springing forward” into Daylight Savings Time is pretty meh. There are no parades, time off, or even a small gifting tradition.
However, you can guarantee that the fateful Sunday will throw you for a loop, confusing you to no end when you realize your phone automatically updates, but you’ve been an hour late to everything because you haven’t changed the clock in your car.
While there have been campaigns to abolish the biannual hour change and some states don’t even observe it, it seems to be one of those quirks that’s here to stay — like gifting fruitcakes or writing the traditional cover letter. Try as you may resist, you’re probably going to have to change your clock (and spellcheck that letter!).
Now, let’s spring forward to this week’s jobs.
It’s the hiring event of the season, and you don’t even need to leave your house to attend — Technical.ly’s virtual NET/WORK job fair returns. Take a look at who’s hiring, learn more about some of the companies, then join us for free this Thursday, March 18.
