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.

Last week, the robotic spacecraft Odysseus landed on the moon. It was the first American spacecraft in over 50 years to touch down on the lunar surface. 

Landing on the moon again may feel like one small step in 2024, but it could lead to a giant leap for mankind — more missions traveling the solar system in the future, including with people aboard. 

While you might not be in mission control landing an aircraft on the moon, each small step in your career can add up to one giant leap. So don’t be afraid to reach for the stars, even if they seem far away. You never know what small steps might get you there. 

But don’t keep your head in the clouds too long. We’ve got a constellation of new opportunities below.
