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.

Best Friends Forever

We’ve been through so much together this year, haven’t we? It’s almost like we’re best friends now, if you think about it.*

We looked for jobs that sparked so much joy we wanted to fold them into thirds and place them in our emotional dressers, Marie Kondo-style. We sang a compelling duet of career openings, much like Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper during an uncomfortably intimate awards ceremony performance. We marveled at the dimwitted schemes of the Fyre Fest founders, assuring you that, if conducted properly, our listed jobs would most likely would not send you to jail.

Yours truly had a birthday. In fact, it’s likely all of you did, too. Huh, how about that?

So thank you for your joining us on this everlasting quest to find purpose and fulfillment through work. ‘Twas a pleasure to keep you informed about job openings and whatever weird thoughts we were having at the time we wrote each newsletter.

*Did you think about it? Are we??
