That was fun while it lasted.

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. Here’s the last one we published; it’s meant to live in your inbox. Sign up for the newsletter here.

Here’s the pitch

And it’s swing and a miss, as tonight’s Yankees-Phillies game has been postponed following a number of Florida Marlins players and staff testing positive for coronavirus.

Still, the brief return of baseball over the weekend provided some with a (temporary) sense of relief and normalcy, and even if it didn’t, at least we got some good Phanatic shenanigans out of it.

Despite this Major League Bummer, other teams and sports are pushing forward, and Doug Pederson says he feels “extremely safe” as the Eagles training camps are set to start soon.

We’ll have to wait to see how these plans play out, but you don’t have to wait to get in the game — check out the job posts below and swing for the fences.

The News

Amplify Philly @ Home, a series of virtual conversations, music and activities, is kicking off tomorrow (Wednesday, July 29) at 1 p.m. See the whole event schedule here, and be sure to check out the fireside chat at 2:36 p.m. with Technically Media CEO Chris Wink and SEER CEO Wil Reynolds on “How to talk about fear at work.”


Last week, Baltimore’s Donte Kirby joined a few esports industry leaders for the headiest game of Rocket League ever played. The group discussed race, gender and other issues of access and equity, all while piloting jet-powered cars and scoring goals with giant exploding balls. Who says social justice has to be serious all the time?

The latest episode of The TWIJ Show dives into how to make the workplace more welcoming for parents. Listen in on the convo with professionals from Black Girl Ventures, cloudtamer and Deacom (see job posts below), and look out for special appearances by our panelists’ kids.

And if the job search isn’t enough “putting yourself out there” for you, check out this article on how Philadelphians are approaching dating in the era of COVID-19. How much more complicated could it be than normal? 😅

That’s it for this week. Until next time, maybe try practicing for job interviews with cardboard cutouts.

Happy job hunting!
