Want to work in Google’s weird neon office? Well maybe you can via Google

Welcome, Brokelyners, to another adventure in the magical world of employment! Here are some of our favorite picks from the wild world of hiring in New York, since although that kombucha starter rental business is obviously going to take off any day now, it’s usually nice to have some spending cash to throw around at things like “rent” and “food.” (more…)

Work in the shadows to make this story go off without a hitch. via Facebook

You’ve honed your office skills since you’ve lived in the city, to the point where you’re a veritable Joan Holloway or even an icily effective Sue Wilson. But if you’re unsatisfied using them for some faceless megacorporation, we’ve got a great job for you: the Moth needs what they’re calling an “assistant to the executive team,” but from the job description, sounds mostly like an office manager. Want to help make the story magic happen? More important, want a salary and benefits? Read on! (more…)

Get the job being the person to make those graphics around Chris Hayes. Just don’t accidentally write “maternity” leave. via Facebook

Looking to break into the world of TV news? Oh, really, you are? Well, before you jump up to having your own shouty-head show, you’ve gotta do some background work. But where would you even get a job in TV production for cable news? Oh, look, there’s whole job fair happening next Tuesday with representatives from cable news channels of all ideologies that’s happening in Midtown. We know, this means you have to balance a desire for a job with your shit idea of having to go to 34th Street. (more…)

pot critic job

Despite the fact that there are some cool jobs here, the last national job forecast we saw advised people seeking money in exchange for services rendered to go west, including Colorado. And lo and behold, we’ve come across a job that you can only have in Colorado and not here: pot critic. Yes, seriously, pot critic. Sadly, you can’t telecommute to the job, so the question is, would you pack up and move for this job? (more…)

Make no mistake: Diane von Furstenberg is smiling because she’s planning to destroy you, the competition. via Facebook

Have you ever wondered what the most popular job in New York State is? By which we mean jobs disproportionally held by people compared to the state’s population. If you’d put us on the spot, we’d have picked “corrupt state legislator” or “finance creature reeking of self-satisfaction.” It turns out though, that when you do the math like Business Insider did, the most popular job by population here is “fashion designer.” We bet corrupt politician is probably up there, though.

Can you make the next great comedy that everyone says they love but no one seems to watch?

If you’re involved in a creative pursuit in New York, your mom or your grandpa is always telling you to just walk right into Mr. NBC’s office and tell him about your great idea for a TV show. “You’re so funny, they’ll have to listen to you,” your mom says. “Jesus ma, that’s not how it works,” you reply. Except NBC is desperate now and has put out a call for comedy pitches from any damn idiot on the internet. Guess you mom was right again, so maybe you should also go out with that nice girl whose parents she met at shul last week. (more…)

You'll shoot your eye out kid

Shoots and career ladders.

If you’re looking for a summer job, you could do a lot worse than operating a shooting gallery at the beach for a few months. We don’t have much more information besides what’s in this sign, except that the place within which to inquire is the Coney Island freak show, and the shooting gallery is this classic 1940s-era one that’s right next door. As a former boardie, I can attest that barking carnival games is a hell of a fascinating way to spend a summer. (more…)

CBGB needs a recipe consultant to tell them, "More weed in this cookie. Or less maybe? I'm high as hell man."

CBGB needs a recipe consultant to tell them, “More weed in this cookie. Or less maybe? I’m high as hell man.”

Spring is here! I can tell that because it’s been raining instead of snowing. Spring means new and better things are coming, both in terms of foliage, and now, occupation, since we’ve found a bunch of new jobs that will help you cruise all the way to summer in style: (more…)

It’s about James Gordon waiting for Batman to get to Gotham actually, but whatever. BATMAN

Because in either case, we’ve got a great opportunity for you, with Batman-based TV show Gotham holding open auditions in Brooklyn today and tomorrow for women who want to be background biker gang ladies.

You could finally share a bill with Reggie Watts, like you always thought you deserved. via Facebook

Hey, how’s your standup career been going? No, seriously, we’re interested. We know that Brooklyn has become a place that draws a ton of comedic talent, so you might be looking for a way for your standup to stand out. In which case, it probably couldn’t hurt to submit something to the Brooklyn Comedy Festival, which is coming back for a second year this summer. Oh man, we sound like your mother passive-aggressively dumping on your comedy dreams, don’t we? Bet you can make a joke out of that. (more…)
