This Week in Jobs DMV: Love-o-motion Edition

Transit romance, jobs and more.

All aboard! (Gif via

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.

Training Day

The Washington Metro Area Transit Authority, or “wuh-mata,” may not convey the hushed elegance of, say, The Orient Express or Belmond Royal Scotsman, but if love of mass transit is at the core of your being, there’s a dating site for you.

NUMTinder, a spinoff of the “New Urbanist Memes for Transit-Oriented Teens” Facebook group (not actually for teens), has reportedly become a semi-serious globe-spanning venue for bus- and train-lovers to find a likeminded lifelong travel partner. With subways some 60 feet below the surface, it brings new meaning to finding friends in low places.

Let’s keep it moving.

The End

If a cafe-car first date over Chobani yogurts and hummus doesn’t resonate with you, Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens is reportedly is featuring four artists in residence as part of “Down to Earth,” collaboration with Capital Fringe and Caandor Labs that explores “the intersectionality of climate change and racial inequity.” (Shout out, as always, to 730DC for this one.) Even solo, as spring arrives, it sounds like a great way to unwind, either virtually or (safely) in person.

Good luck out there on the job hunt, and stay safe!
