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.
It’s a cruel, cruel summer.
Can you get a restraining order on a season? Because summer is being a real stage-five clinger.
Maybe if everyone in Philly buys an anti-humidifier and puts it outside at the same time … ahh, forget it. Guess it’s best to just stay inside and catch a breeze cruising down the highway of careers. Aka: this newsletter.
The News (about Philly Tech Week)
Yous guys, meet Raz. Guy Raz. The “How I Built This” podcast host for NPR will be this year’s keynote speaker at Introduced by Technical.ly on Sept. 25 — one of Philly Tech Week presented by Comcast’s most popular all-day conferences. It is PTW’s 10th annual event, but the very first in an entirely virtual setting. You know what that means: NPR — no pants required. JK. Please cover your bottoms. Tickets for Introduced are ready for purchase ($100) and the first 300 registrants will get a signed copy of Raz’s brand-new book.
Let’s keep this train runnin’! PTW20’s Signature Event — “Philly’s Nerd Met Gala” — will take place on Sept. 24. This event promises excitement at every turn: Cosplay. Awards. Live trivia. Your ticket price goes to support our journalism and community organizing via the Technical.ly Journalism Fund. Because you can handle the truth. And you deserve it.
And finally, a little something for the devs: PTW20 is bringing back the always popular, all-day Dev Conference on Sept. 23 (and yes, we realize we wrote these events in reverse chronological order). Here’s a look at how the day will shake out.
