Drop everything and start making $35/hour as a professional feminist advocate

Be the voice of feminism wherever you go… and get paid for it. via website

“Art” and “feminism” are words you don’t often hear used to describe professional work sectors, let alone in the same job description. But here’s one that combines both for budding organizers seeking an epic feminist career move: Art+Feminism is currently seeking a Program Coordinator to “support the exponential growth of their global initiative” in 2017. And the pay’s not bad, either.

You might remember Art+Feminism from a post we ran earlier this year about their famed Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon, the patriarchy-smashing annual event where women and allies edit Wikipedia articles to remove instances of misogyny and to better document women’s contributions around the world and in history. Three years into the Wikipedia project the organization is bigger than ever and growing fast, but you still have a chance to work with them at a grassroots level.

At $35/hour, you’ll get to to “play a key role” in the development and success of their Wikipedia initiative, and to promote women in the arts. You’ll get to manage communications, project pipelines and social media platforms. Best of all, when people ask you what you do for a living, you’ll get to say “feminism” and mean it. (more…)

Since most of us are back to at least trying to pretend that everything isn’t awful and terrible, Brokelyn’s back to its bi-weekly jobs listings. Because even if democracy is letting you down, at least the job market isn’t (for now). There are still plenty of cool gigs out there for young upstarts and mid-career professionals alike. And while none of us knows what’s in store for us come January, a job at a place you love might help weather the next four years, and maybe even make them worth sticking around America for.

That doesn’t mean you have to be complacent, of course. This week’s job roundup includes gigs in investigative reporting and producing, senior editing and customer service, so you can stay involved in both human and digital conversations happening re: Trump’s America. And even though the American presidency is now an entry-level position, all of the jobs in this week’s roundup take at least a little field experience, so peruse our listings and see which one speaks to your skill set.

We know it’s hard to believe, but life will go on after the 2016 general election is over. Regardless of who wins (no Trumpies no Trumpies) you’ll have a life to get back to, an apartment to pay rent on and a job that’ll help you do it! Unless, that is, you don’t have a job.

If you find yourselves in the throes of funemployment that’s looking less and less fun every day, then let the Brokelyn job fair find you something fun and paid to do. Assuming the country doesn’t end up in a burning cataclysm of fiery death on Nov. 9, you could land a sweet job in book reviewing, bookkeeping, brand managing and more. Have a peep at all these neat positions we found, and see which one is worthy of your talents. (more…)

If you’ve been jobless for an extended period (sry) of time, and you’re looking to increase the flow (sry) of cash into your bank account, then look no further than New York-based period underwear company THINX, because they’re currently hiring for two job positions: Full Stack Web Developer, and Growth Strategist.

“Just ~*~*IMAGINE~*~* spending all day, err day with these smiling faces!!” reads the job notice, posted to THINX’s Facebook page yesterday with the photo above. “This is POSSIBLE because… drumroll please… we’re hiring!”

If you haven’t heard of THINX, by the way, it’s either because you don’t get out much or because you’re just veeery late to the game. The company’s high octane, post-millennial and mildly manic PR style has not only been plastered all over NYC subways for the past year, but was also recently lauded in an open love letter on Jezebel.

In either of these positions, you’d be helping to grow this “lightly deranged” brand to its full potential. Sure, we could tell you why these jobs sound especially great, but we’d rather u-ter-us. (more…)

It’s been a while since our last hot n’ fresh jobs post hit the stands, and you might have been left feeling high and dry this month, thinking we must not really care whether you might ever afford another music festival. But you would be wrong in thinking that, because we definitely do care. We want you to have all the stuff of life at minimal cost, and what’s more, we want you to have fun making the money to do it.

In that spirit, here are five sweet Brooklyn jobs that range from floor manager to cellarman, pastry production to video production. No matter your area of expertise, one of these oughta pique your interest. (And if nothing does then hey, there’s always Hawaii.) (more…)

It's bacon me crazy.

This obsession is bacon me crazy.

You love bacon. I know because you don’t ever stop talking about it. You tell your vegan friends: “I could give up meat,” then you scream: “except for BACON!!!” as you render flesh from its package still raw and slap it all over your body to form a bacon jumpsuit, bursting through the door into the summer sun to let it cook both the meat and your body alive so you can live the rest of your days as a walking bacon golem, until you eat yourself into oblivion, which will take about 10 minutes, because you just can’t control yourself around bacon. If there’s a new bacon flavored product, you’ll break into a bodega in the middle of the night to try it, before complaining that it needs MORE BACON. You put bacon on your salads, bacon on your brussel sprouts and smash bacon into your mac and cheese, just to be sure anyone who doesn’t eat bacon never touches your food or breathes non-bacon-scented air into your space.

Good for you, you found a passion in life, and you’d slaughter that pig from Babe with your own hands just so people know bacon is your “thing.” Now you can use that passion to actually get paid: Extra Crispy, the new Time Inc. site launched today dedicated to covering breakfast, because sure why not the internet needs more content, is hiring a freelance bacon critic “to cover the bacon beat, spanning bacon’s role in food, drinks, and culture” and generally service other people who will die if they don’t talk about bacon once a day. Yep, it’s real job, and everything you dreamed about in journalism school when you first took that Meat Fetish Content for the Digital Age class.

Summer means biking everywhere, summer jobs, fond memories of camp and mentally high fiving every school child you pass on the street because you know they are currently living their best no-school life. Here’s a job that combines all those things: The nonprofit Bike New York is hiring instructors for its summer program to teach kids how to ride a bike (so they can learn before they turn 27), plus bike handling and basic traffic skills so you can help breed the next generation of road warriors to help take back the streets from cars. It’s a part-time seasonal gig that pays $20 per hour, with 35 hours per week from July to August. (more…)

Ride, ride, ride that Coney. via flickr user EITico68

Ever wanted to run away to the circus when you were a kid? Here in New York, it’s only a train ride away. And you can actually get paid to do it.

Coney Island businesses are currently hiring for their summer season, and those include some of your favorite games, rides and restaurants on the People’s Playground: Luna Park needs game operators, Nathan’s Famous needs hot dog hawkers, Deno’s Wonder Wheel needs that joker who asks you if you want “swinging” or “non-swinging.” The list goes on, and there’s certainly something for everyone.

Picture it: you’ll get to spend your summer daze on one of the best beaches (personality dependent) in the borough, ride some rides for free, sun yourself on the beach during your breaks and listen to a pretty decent music lineup wafting over from Coney Island Amphitheater (a lineup we initially feared would just be terrible). Not to mention that given the current state of Brooklyn dating, the Coney Boardwalk might just be your best bet for finding this year’s summer fling.  (more…)
