Can you keep help the Brooklyn Historical Society’s library in order? Then we’ve got a job for you! via Facebook

So holiday season is yet again upon us, and we know what that means: the purchasing of turkeys, the entertaining of relatives you were pretty sure were dead, and so, so many holiday presents. Yes, true Brokelyners are already weeping for the potential income about to be flushed on the “feelings” of “others,” and to make up for these economic and seasonal drains, I’d recommend snapping up one of the many awesome jobs floating around Kings County! I’ve taken the liberty of rounding up some of the best of the week in one, easy, convenient location, much like how all of your Christmas gifts end up conveniently at that one store a block from your house on Christmas Eve.

Hey you could work here! via Flickr user *Bitch Cakes*

Maybe it’s been a minute since you’ve seen You’ve Got Mail, but let me refresh your memory on the plot. Big, sleek, lucrative chain bookstores = bad. Cute, quirky, independent bookstores = good. Was that not what we were supposed to take away from that movie? Even still, coolness and community responsibility points are rewarded to those that support local bookstores over the Fox Bookstores of the world, and now here’s your chance to up the ante and work at one, as WORD is looking for someone to manage their inventory in both their Greenpoint and Jersey City stores.

lola star

You could work with that dog. via Facebook

The holidays are here, and with Christmas and Hanukkah comes the efforts of people to sell you their stuff which you can give to your families in exchange for love. If you need a little extra cash for the “buying stuff” side of the ledger, than good news: bubbly Coney Island boutique Lola Star is opening a Williamsburg pop-up store and needs help selling t-shirts, cool nautical-themed novelties, nail polish and all the other good stuff they sell. Better working for scrappy underdog Lola Star than an Illumnati-based fake indie stores. (more…)

Can you tweet funny stuff about these covers? You’re hired! via Facebook

As the holiday season descends upon us, you know that the people here at Brokelyn only have one wish: for you to have a kick-ass job that makes all of your friends and relatives insanely jealous. Oh, we’re also wishing for jet-skis, and for Glasslands not to close. But mainly, we’re really wishing for the job-so-great-everyone’s-jealous thing. So, to help you in that quest to find the perfect occupation, we’ve rounded up the best of the job offers this week into one handy list! (more…)

“We solemnly swear to enjoy the sweet pension we get from this job.” via Facebook

Hey, you, reading a blog at 3pm on a weekday. You need a job? Why not get on the road to being a New York City garbageman? You can laugh all you want if you think we’re kidding, but registration is open for the next civil service test to join the Department of Sanitation, and if you want to turn your nose up at the job, you can just go back to your shitty life that doesn’t include across-the-board health insurance, a pension and a chance to move up in the department. Yeah, who’s laughing now. (more…)

Make sure these kids learn how to read good and things. via Facebook

You consider yourself a good person because you pay your taxes and don’t push other pedestrians into traffic, don’t start too many bar fights and have a charitable streak in you. Other people have also commented on your goodness. You’re also unemployed, but have some experience in education. Well, lucky you, because 826NYC, the nonprofit devoted to superhero supply and helping children in their creative writing endeavors, is hiring an office manager/field trip manager for their Williamsburg location. Can you be the office manager that these kids deserve and the one they need? (more…)

This could be where you work. via Facebook

Alright, this is starting to get ridiculous. How are all of these amazing jobs still hiring with so many talented, driven New Yorkers like yourself lying around? You’d think all the good jobs would be taken forever by now, but week after week I keep finding better and better employment opportunities. Do me a solid and take a few of these awesome jobs so maybe next time I can write a shorter article. Thanks! (more…)

They’re gonna be crawling all over you, but that’s OK, apply today! via Facebook

Do you hate your current job because there’s not enough rock climbing or children? That’s a very specific reason to be upset with your job! Still, in this instance, it’s paying off, because Brooklyn Boulders wants someone who loves kids and loves rock climbing to join their team on their belay staff. Are you ready for a life of getting kids excited about climbing on stuff?  (more…)

If you want to tell people that cheese is good, for a living we mean, inquire with Murray. via Facebook

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…)

brooklyn public library

This could be you! The librarian, not the kids. via Facebook

Hey, have you heard the good news? The library has more money in their budget than they had last year, according to a very excited press release. 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…)
