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.
Not what you’d expect
You probably think this week’s post is going to be about Thanksgiving. Maybe it’s the fact that it’s a mere two days away, or perhaps it’s the headline, directly referencing turkey.
Because we’re unpredictable. We’re untamed and impossible to pin down. Just when you think you’ve got us figured out, we — oh goodness, is it 8:00 a.m. already? We should really hit the road if we want to stay on schedule.

Learn more about the program and its funding options here. And may your dreams fly as high as the sky. (Sorry.)
Even though we present a list of jobs the same way every single week, it’s because we want to, not because we’re tied to some rigid template, you know? Believe us, the second we decide to change it up, you won’t know what hit ya. We’re just wild and impulsive like that.
That said, we do want to assure you this list of jobs was responsibly compiled from reliable sources.
