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.
No doubt, dear job seekers, you’ve seen company career pages with the catch-all listing. “Don’t see your role here?” they ask, “Apply and tell us what we need.”
How often, you might wonder, do people actually get a job that way? Tell them what they need? Sounds dicey.
But, consider Amanda Gorman. At 22, she’s the country’s first National Youth Poet Laureate, and her inauguration appearance has landed her a gig with a much bigger audience — the NFL.
Yes, Gorman’s reciting poetry before the kickoff of this year’s Super Bowl. It just goes to show, hiring managers and professional sports leagues don’t always know what they’re looking for, until you show them what they’re missing.
In a very timely episode of Off the Sidelines, Pam Kostka of All Raise and investor, entrepreneur, and diversity advocate Tracy Chou talk about how the standard investor profile is slowly changing.
It’s here! Learn how to build an authentic employee-first culture through insights from Technical.ly’s Culture Builder newsletter.
