Citi Bike is all sorts of terrible things,
they some crazy people say, but it is quite the jobs creator. The ever-embattled bike share program’s got lots of open positions available in Brooklyn, from checkers to dispatchers to “outreach ambassadors,” so screw all those college kids who got full time jobs before they even graduated, eh? We’ve rounded up a few other available gigs that are ripe for the picking, too, so you can spend summer fighting your landlord for lower rent money in financial peace. (more…)
Citi Bike is all sorts of terrible things,
Few things are scarier than being a newly-minted college graduate trying to navigate the cash-sucking waters of New York City in the REAL WORLD. And Brooklyn Heights resident Ari King, who graduated from Wesleyan University in the midst of 2009′s awful job market, knows that as well as anyone; after moving to New York right after graduation, he kicked around the city trying to find a gig, sleeping on couches and subsisting on dollar slices, before finally landing some substantial work. But King knew even some of the greats had trouble getting on their feet from the get-go, so he’s penned and self-published a new book with tips from celebs, businessmen and other successful grown-ups to help guide post-grads and others struggling to start-out make it to the top.

Have you ever been a teenage girl? Would you like to continue to be a teenage girl while also getting paid? It’s not creepy, we promise. Rookie Magazine is an online magazine for teenage girls (actually, not ironically), and they’re looking for a full-time editor who’s down to work from home. Sure glossy crush-filled mags like Tiger Beat and J-14 have their place, but what about stuff like feminism and indie music and complex emotions like longing and nostalgia (for younger, more fetal days, we assume)? Rookie needs somebody. Are you that somebody? Inquire within. You can still talk about crushes if you really want. (more…)
Pity poor Grizzly Bear, who can barely pay the rent, right? Of course, that means even worse things for you, the average schmuck with the great band that no one has ever heard of. No, you’ll never make it in this dog eat guitar world, so you may as well give up. Or actually, don’t do that. FreeWilliamsburg talked to a music industry vet who claims that musicians can make money and pay the rent, and he even wrote a whole book about it. (more…)
Online dating sites are a dime a dozen these days, and in this day and age there’s no shame in OKCupid-ing your way to
romance a free dinner — even Martha Stewart’s doing it! But with so many eligible lovely ladies and lusty bachelors out there, the online dating profile’s become part art, part science, and unless you’re just hot-or-not-ing the selection on Tinder, it’s hard to sift through all sludge to find Mr. or Ms. Right. For one “successful entrepreneur,” the online dating world has become so dense and difficult, he needs someone to do it for him – and for $100 a week, that person can be you! (more…)
It’s no secret that Twitter’s turned into a primary (if occasionally misleading) news resource in this Age of Information. But while the social media site’s been more of a crowdsourced updates in the past, it appears it’s upping it’s game: Twitter just posted an ad looking for a Head of News and Journalism, and they plan to use this position to “shape and drive the next growth phase of Twitter’s partnership with the news industry.” YOU IN?

Office job boring you to death? Want to get work outside, where the people are? Well, if you and some friends have $50,000 just sitting around, you can start bidding to be the proud new owners of Bedford Avenue staple the Endless Summer taco truck. Bonus: it still has food service permits! (more…)
[UPDATE: Sotheby's told Gakwer this was all a hoax and that they're too fancy for Craigslist:
"We can confirm that it is not a Sotheby’s job posting. We don’t hire for a position of that title, and we don’t use Craigslist as a recruiting tool.
We have also checked with our colleagues at Sotheby’s International Realty and they confirmed it wasn’t them either. Our guess is that this is some kind of a hoax."
Of course, it sounds like the dumbest hoax ever and we really want this to be true, so we'll just pretend that it is]
If you need a new job and have some basic office skills, you might want to shoot your resume over to fancy art people Sotheby’s. Judging by their Craigslist ad looking for a new administrative assistant, they need you pretty badly, especially if you know how to use the copy and paste function on your computer, which is very very difficult, as we all know.
