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.

Close to 112 million Americans are hitting the road, skies and rails this week, according to a travel survey from The Vacationer.

Below you’ll find a bevy of new opportunities to excite even the most stressed of seasoned travelers. So take a deep breath, stop refreshing your boarding time and peruse this week’s offerings.
