This Week in Jobs: TP’ing the job hunt

In a good way.

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.

No, I don’t have a square to spare

This weekend, upon one of many regularly scheduled visits to the wiz palace, we finally realized the only thing that truly matters in this crazy world: toilet paper.

Oh, how we once so foolishly took those gloriously quilted white squares for granted. How we mocked their delicate touch and playful bounce by way of talking bears and puppy bowling balls. How we mindlessly poo pooed the value of the majestic cloth that not only cleans our bums, but cleanses our souls.

Now that the sacred source of TP has been replenished, we vow to never wipe carelessly again. To use only what we need, and to spare a square for those less fortunate. For quilted or single ply, each gauzy cube is like gift wrapping for our golden droplets, and our dignity.

Now, get off the toilet and get back to work.

The News

Still trying to wrap your brain around remote work during a pandemic? So are these 13 meetup groups. Take some tips, or simply find some solace in the fact that you are most certainly not alone, as you navigate this topsy turvy remote lifestyle.

If you’ve got money on your mind, Code for Philly just launched a new technical fellowship that pays. The part-time opportunity offers three fellows a $1,500 stipend each for 10 hours of work on a weekly basis over an eight-week period. It’s Code by Philly’s effort to help reduce barriers for people underrepresented in the tech industry.

Philly-based, direct-to-consumer cleaning product company Dropps is (still) having a growth spurt. Kind of like when your mom had to buy you longer pants in eighth grade, only for you to grow out of them a month later. In this case, the Inc. 5000 honoree’s sustainable dishwashing soaps have been in constant demand from all the people cooking at home due to something called COVID-19. Heard of it? Hasn’t been in the news much. Ahh, jokes. Anyhoo, keep your eyes peeled for jobs at this ever-growing company.

The Jobs

  • If you get excited every time you walk by Free People’s whimsical store windows, you’re gonna want to put your John Hancock down on this application. URBN (parent company to FP, Anthropologie and more) is hiring an Associate Manager, Personalization & Testing.
