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.

Innovation can be an uphill battle. Forget about “building the better mousetrap” — oftentimes, people like to stick with what they already know instead of trying something new.

Take the shopping cart. When this 1930s Oklahoma-based innovation hit the aisles, shoppers had no idea what to do with it. In fact, when introduced by grocer Sylvan Goldman as an alternative, many shoppers ignored the shopping cart, opting to overload their hand baskets.

Eventually, the shopping cart was so underused that Goldman hired actors to wheel shopping carts around the store, modeling the technology for customers. Shoppers eventually understood the new tool and that’s why you have Goldman to thank for your overstuffed shopping cart.

Just a reminder that change isn’t always easy, and leading by example can have an incredible impact.

Now, ready to shop around for some new opportunities?
