Look at all that learning

Just look at all that learning. via Facebook

Photoville’s a great chance to see cool photography in cool storage containers with a cool view of the skyline. But there’s a lot more to do at Photoville than just looking at pictures. For the next two weekends (September 19-21, September 27 and 28), they’ll have all kinds of free photography-centered talks and classes at Brooklyn Bridge Park with industry tips, technical advice, and stories from career photographers. There’s even a happy hour with an informal peer review where you can show everyone just how great your work is. (more…)

Let me be honest with you here for a second: digging for jobs is hard work. Scrolling through page after page of people looking for “interns” and “willing to pay with exposure” to find the actually awesome jobs is tough, but I know that if I can help just one person get the job that makes people give an impressed look when they’re introduced at dinner parties, I’ll know my work has paid off. That’s a little something called job satisfaction, and if you don’t know anything about that, just keep on reading, because these jobs will provide it. (more…)

What it means for you is extended hours and more libraries open on weekends, if you’re the type of person who wants to hang out in the library on weekends. Having money though also means that the library is doing a bunch of hiring. Want to be a librarian? Want to be handle the library’s social media? Want to be a custodian? Well today is your lucky day, bub. (more…)

Just tell them the fork in the hair is something everyone in New York does

So, you’ve got your law degree that you’ve been carrying around with you since graduating law school, which isn’t weird at all. Still, despite your ill-fitting suit and your ability to yell “Objection” at the right time, you’re having trouble getting that job as a lawyer. Maybe you should stop trying to get work in the lawyer-filled big city, and take your fancy lawyering out to Nebraska. WNYC talked to a real lawyer who’s done it, and he’s swimming in clients!

Janitors. Weed places probably need janitors.

Well lucky for you, a new job board, WeedHire, is now out there that allows you to look for jobs and post resumes for employers in the legal pot industry. These are the days of miracle and wonder.

Alright, you’re doing pretty well. You live in New York City, presumably in a very urban-chic (small) apartment, you’ve found your soulmate or are at least stalking him on Twitter, so there’s one thing is missing: The kickass New York job where you work hard and play harder. To help you complete this final requirement in what 99% of people agree is “winning,” here are a bevy of jobs for you to choose from. Also, I think you might need a pet as well, to really push you over the top. (more…)

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.

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! (more…)
