The gods have smiled upon creative career options this week and brought us these three not-oft seen opportunities to get paid and pump up that resume by following your passions to drink beer, script puppets, and be funny. Don’t just wistfully stare at your computer screen, apply if you’re interested! In these trying times we must cling to the hope of fresh opportunity. Now, every time really bummer news breaks, you can remind yourself that you have a pending application to be a writing fellow for Sesame Street where sunny days are sweepin’ the clouds away…
If anything is the embodiment of wholesome inclusiveness and American values it’s the beloved children’s TV show that gave us Oscar the Grouch and Mr. Sunffleupagus. Sesame Street – oh sweet source of televised diversity, neighborliness, and really fluffy talking puppets – is now looking for seven to ten writers from underrepresented racial groups to apply for a new fellowship program to take place at their NYC offices this June and July. The fellowship will include six three-hour sessions on creating children’s educational media content and the opportunity to complete at least one script during the program under the guidance of industry writers, producers, agents and, just maybe, Big Bird.
Applications will be accepted through March 31st.

Get paid $12,000 to drink beer and travel the world? There’s no catch, except for the fact that this is maybe the bro-iest job of all time, but it’s going to be hard for anyone to put you down for working at World of Beer with a job description like that.
Applications are open through March 26th to any and everyone who has time to do nothing but make and share beer stories all summer long. To win this hoppin’ opportunity, share a one-minute video putting your brew passion on display. The best applicants will go to Round 2 and interview with a panel of “beer-lebrity judges”.
Entertainment company and comedy programming producer Above Average – which fostered comedians like Broad City’s Ilana Glazer and SNL’s Sasheer Zamata, featuring them before they got picked up by the big guns – is looking for more fresh talent to join its team.
The 18-month Above Average Residency Program is accepting applications through April 1 for “early career talent looking to cut their teeth in comedy.” Open positions include a branded writer, editor, director, and writer/performer.
