This Week in Jobs: Waking up your dream jobs

No, that doesn’t make sense.

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.

Rain, rain don’t go away

Undisputed national treasure Hilary Duff once sang, “Let the rain fall down and wake my dreams. Let it wash away my sanity. ‘Cause I wanna feel the thunder, I wanna scream. Let the rain fall down — I’m coming clean.”

We couldn’t help but feel our own dreams were awakened during Monday’s thunderstorms. Mostly because it was too loud to sleep, but also because, although social isolation can be sad and dreary, it’s a good time to take stock of what we really want out of our careers.

If you haven’t felt motivated to do this yet, don’t worry. This week’s forecast shows another chance of rain and thunder later this week and weekend. Meanwhile, Duff’s music is timeless and available on all streaming platforms.

The News

Power Home Remodeling shared its approach to companywide diversity and inclusion, including its annual Cultural Diversity & Inclusion Summit and an internal program it calls Code Academy — an immersive six-month coding bootcamp that trains employees from other Power departments for entry-level developer roles. But that’s not all! It’s also hiring. Two reasons to dive in and read more.

Nth Round has been making the … well, rounds … of the fintech scene. The startup helps employers and their employees understand what to do with the equity they earn. It’s a small company, and currently no jobs line its job board, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take the initiative to reach out, introduce yourself and show your interest in working there. Just ask yourself, What Would Duff Do (WWDD)? We think she’d want to feel that sweet thunder of making connections with cool new startups.

The End

Next time a soggy day leaves you feeling low, remember Duff’s wise revelation — rainy days don’t quash your dreams, they bring them back to life!

Or it’s time we stop watching reruns of “Laguna Beach.”

Happy job hunting, friends.
