It’s almost time for you to sit down at the Thanksgiving table, and your family might want you to bring more than a delicious non-pie dessert from one of Brooklyn’s finest institutions. They’re also going to want to know if you’ve got a good job yet. Fortinately, we’ve got plenty of great jobs for you today, though if we’re being totally honest, the places we’ve got listed probably won’t be doing their hiring by Thanksgiving. Whatever, tell them you’re in the running, fudge the truth a little. (more…)

Beyond being a place for questionable selfies, questionable gift shop items and a place to get a really expensive hot dog, the September 11 Memorial and Museum is the place where we mark a dark day in American history and teach what happened to people who weren’t around when it happened. You’d think that knowing about 9/11 would be a key job requirement at a teaching position at the memorial, but according to a job listing we came across today, you’re not required to have a basic understanding of the day in question if you want to lead field trips at the museum.

Despite the fact that fall has allegedly started and the leaves are dying on the trees, you don’t have to look on your employment prospects with a similar kind of despair. Take heart, there’s all kinds of hiring going on in this crazy city, so please don’t sell your blood for exploitative debit cards or take any other rash actions. Just apply for one of the jobs we found you instead. (more…)

Welcome back to another episode of “Let’s Get You a New Job!” After scouring the internet, breaking the fourth wall, calling a few places and doing the classic “ask around” we’ve compiled a list of jobs we think could be suitable for you. Have at it, people, and happy freaking humpday. (more…)

There are a lot of ways to break into the food world, which we’ve gone over with you before. One avenue we hadn’t thought of was being a beloved restaurant’s mascot, although how often does that opportunity come up? Well, it’s come up today, because Carnegie Deli is hiring a pickle mascot to tempt passersby into dropping in for a sandwich or some soup of even just a nosh. This is a real people-person job, so maybe think of doing something else if you’re a gherk. (more…)

Like so many people who’ve moved here, I’ve had a checkered work history. Barely making it as a nanny, a stint as a hostess at an Italian restaurant where my manager was a bit too “friendly,” and worst of all, a personal assistant to an Upper East Side socialite who was without a doubt out of her freaking mind. The final straw for that job came on a cold, bleak morning in February when she told me to “get rid of the cat” and then lie to her son that Nemo died in his sleep. Fortunately, I eventually found a  job (relatively) free from crazy mothers, devoid of creepy managers and consistent enough so I could afford to eat. Brokesters, if  you’re reading this thinking “Holy mother of pearl, this speaks to me; I need a new job,” keep on reading, because we’ve got some great job leads for you!

As you know, we here at Brokelyn are always happy to share cool jobs with you, because we think you should be happy at work and not miserable and cranky. Still, even our searches usually only lead you to cool offices, which is kind of limited. What if you want to live the rat race and civilization behind entirely? Well if that’s the case, here’s your big chance to take to the sea, because a future sea captain is putting up posters in Brooklyn looking for a crew to sail around the world with him on an epic two-year voyage.

Good on a bike? We’ve got a gig for you.

Are you in decent shape and looking to put that body of yours to work to make some cash? Hey why not, it’s summer. We wish we could tell you we got a line on a job offer looking to pay some people to be extra in the unauthorized sequel Magic Mike 3: More Magicer, but we have an offer to share with you that will at least make you some cash. Smorgasburg is making their GrubHub/Seamless debut this weekend, and that means they need some delivery. Are you a bad enough dude to bring Brooklynites their spaghetti burgers and jambalaya before they got cold? (more…)

Well Brooklyn, summer is officially in full swing, and that means that you need to get out there and have some fun! Or at least, it would, had you not already blown all your money on outdoor beer gardens and inflatable toys to bring to the beach. With this in mind, to fuel your adventure-laden summer all the way to the end, you’re going to have to find some actual work! Now, where to start? If only there was some trusty blog that not only had listings of every fun thing under the sun in BK, but also a list of awesome jobs that you can get to pay for said fun activities. It’s us. That’s what I’m getting at. Jobs for everybody! (more…)

So you consider yourself expert at selling stuff, the kind that would survive Glengarry Glen Ross, except you wouldn’t be in that movie because you don’t even struggle at it like those dudes. If you’ve got a passion for sales, and you’ve also got a passion for beers, we have the kind of jobs for you, because Brooklyn Brewery is hiring people in the sales department to come spread the gospel of Brooklyn’s beer (and take people’s money).
