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.

Crisis control

Something huge has interrupted society as we know it, and attention must be paid.

Therefore, if you have not yet watched “Love is Blind” on Netflix, we urge you to do so ASAP. It is the social experiment of the year — nay, decade — and if you don’t watch, you’ll be missing out on one of the ripest opportunities to judge 12 love-struck souls ignoring reality in desperation to wear a wedding ring.

This is our chance to join together as one, folks. How else will we get to the bottom of whether or not Cameron is a robot, programmed with 500+ deeply romantic one-liners, but unable to break eye contact, make jokes or stand like a normal human being? Just imagine, if we learn from Jessica’s wine-fueled attempts to steal another woman’s fiance, there’d be no limit to how many Marks we could save from heartbreak down the line.

Do it for Mark!
