You might have an ideas, but you also might not be able to afford the frame. via Facebook

If you’ve maxed out your last credit card buying your latest stash of materials for your sculpture studio, it may be time to start thinking about applying for a grant. You could hit up the Brooklyn Arts Council, who awards up to $5000 to Brooklyn-based professional and pre-professional artists, artist collectives and non-profit organizations who are making art in all forms. First though, you’ll have to check out one of their seminars.

Internet newshole The Daily Dot needs a morning editor to run their virtual newsroom and win the day when it comes to spotting the viral stuff that people will be talking about.

Meet your new coworkers! Maybe.

You know what? You’ve been working at that old, dead-end job for too long! What’s that? You just started it? Well even so, it’s been long enough! You deserve a job that makes you skip to work in the morning, that makes you whistle on the train (until somebody hits you for not shutting up), that makes you feel good! And while there are several recreational drugs that can also do that, this way you also get paid for your time and don’t have to talk to anyone named “Spider.” So get out there and get hired!

That could be you, telling people, “Hey, put that back.” via Facebook

So you saw all the BuzzFeed jobs, but shrugged, because media isn’t really your thing, fashion is. Usually we’d tell you not not to be picky, but what do you know, it’s paying off for once because Brooklyn Industries is having a job fair for management on Thursday at their Union Square store. Make sure you’re good as bossing people around, but doing it in a Brooklyn way, which we guess means shrugging while you tell someone to do something. (more…)

Not to worry, they’re an equal opportunity employer

So, BuzzFeed is being valued by some investment mavens at something close to a billion dollars. Regardless of how that might make you feel, there’s one way in which the mysterious world of valuations and dudes with monocles throwing money at Jurassic Park-based explainer websites can benefit you, the common schlub: BuzzFeed has so many job openings right now. Presumably, you have so many rent monies to deliver to your landlord, so hey, win-win. (more…)

Clara, comin’ at ya. via Facebook

Claire Beaudreault didn’t come to New York with the stated goal of becoming hip-hop’s number one authority on periods or Tumblr bitches, and yet that’s exactly what happened when Hand Job Academy’s lyrical ode to that time of the month, “Shark Week,” took the damn internet by storm. Hand Job Academy, the group Beaudreault raps in as Clara Bizna$$, has more to rap about then periods though, which we’ll all get to find out about when their debut full-length #IKEAMONKEY comes out August 26.

Beaudreault took a circuitious route to becoming Clara Bizzna$$ though, filling her resume with things like being a character at Disney World, a brief stint as a failed dominatrix, working at two haunted restaurants and even putting in time as a background hooker in Law and Order: SVU. – DC (more…)

Replace “on the cover” with “in the office” and there you go. via Facebook

No? Well check out these awesome jobs and see if you start to hear any music. (more…)

Quick, make up what’s happening here! Because we have no idea. via Facebook

You can act, but you’re not on Broadway yet. We mean, you wait some tables on Broadway, the block, but it’s not quite the same. Here’s a good break though, that could let you escape the monotony of not acting: Story Pirates, the traveling troupe of actors that solicit stories from kids and then makes plays out of the stories, is hiring actors for the 2014-15 season. You’ve gotta like kids, or failing that, be such a good actor that people think you do. (more…)
