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.

Tied to the lunar calendar, today marks the start of the lunar new year. Celebrated across East and Southeast Asian cultures, it’s time to feast, gather and honor ancestors.

The celebration also ushers in the new Zodiac — in this case, the water tiger. The water tiger appears on the Zodiac calendar every 60 years, and signifies strength and eliminating evil with bravery.

How can you bring water tiger energy to the new year and new month? Can you muster up the bravery to make a big move or try something new?
