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.
Like a rolling stone
Delaware is a bit like actress Emma Stone (bear with us here). It pops up in the news now and then, but otherwise keeps a low profile. It has an everlasting coastal beauty, but you know there’s much more going on under the surface. And it has starred in some awesome movies, but never acts like a diva.
At Technical.ly, we cover a great deal of tech and event news in Delaware, but while writing TWIJ we had to ask ourselves, “Have we paid respectable homage to our first state in this here newsletter?” “Nay!” we cried.
Timed to perfection, our own Holly Quinn just wrote about some interesting data on who wants to move to Delaware and why, and it paints a pretty irresistible picture for remote work/life balance. While it’s hard not to ogle over the state’s biggest assets (low taxes and the beach), take a look at the fact that 70% of residents see Delaware as a more attractive state for entrepreneurship or self employment than other states.
Also, fun fact, Stone’s grandmother lived in Delaware once. So … that’s cool.
