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.

As the holiday season crests, taking a break right now might seem impossible. From hosting family to securing last-minute gifts, many of us are caught up in the frenzy of holiday prep on top of workplace demands.

Which means, actually, it may be the perfect time to close your laptop and take a deep breath. Trust us, you’ll be better for it. Numerous studies show that slowing down and taking time off actually boosts future productivity, fostering creative thinking and better information retention.

So go ahead, take a break, and check out this week’s opportunities.

(And speaking of taking a break, will be closed and not publishing from Dec. 23 through Jan. 2, so this is the final TWIJ of the year. Enjoy the holidays, and we’ll see you in 2022!)
