A meme we can identify with.

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.

Even if you didn’t catch The Weeknd’s Super Bowl performance last weekend, chances are you caught a glimpse of the now-viral gif of the musical artist weaving with confusion through a house of mirrors.

As job seekers, we’re sure you can relate. From confusing job descriptions to career boards that look more like they’re there to take your data than help you find a job, it can feel like navigating a not-so-funhouse.

But, with the right resources (may we suggest a weekly newsletter?), perseverance, and a little patience, you’ll find your way to the main stage.

And now, please enjoy this week’s jobs as we try to get “I Can’t Feel My Face” out of our heads, yet again.
