Your new office. via Facebook

So here you are, facing another dreary day in the same bullshit office with the same bullshit job. You need a change, and not just one that gets you from one set of fluorescent lighting to another. You want to break free, take a job that really gets you out of the rat fight. Can you cook? That’s good, but don’t be a normal chef since apparently that’s a terrible job. Instead, check out this great job as the cook for a crew of 10 to 18 people on the educational sailing ship the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater. (more…)

America’s next top model? via Flickr user Juan Luis

Do people commonly refer to you by adjectives that pigeonhole your social identity into a poorly-generalized subsection of Brooklyn counterculture? Are you a mustachioed criminal?

If so, these guys, an unnamed men’s apparel startup, are looking for “gents” to stand around “from time to time” and model the company’s clothing. Not just any kind of gents though: “handsome hipster” types, as their Craigslist ad reveals.

Welcome to the New Year, people! Congratulations, you’ve done it! You’ve lived through another year, working at that job that you absolutely love! What, you don’t love your job? You wouldn’t happen to work in a soul-killing abyss of suckitude, do you? Well, that shit might fly in 2014, but 2015 is the year that you start to kick ass and take names! And give names. On paper. Resumes, I mean. You should get a new awesome job and we’re here to help so look at these! (more…)

The popular perception of the comic book fan is still one who isn’t all that physically capable. More Bruce Banner than Hulk, if you will. That being said, we’e sure there are hulking comics fans out there, because why else would Midtown Comics put an ad up looking for a warehouse strongman for the back issue department in their Long Island City warehouse? So if you’re one of them, your time has come. (more…)

It certainly can’t just be this, right?

Despite the fact that the economy has allegedly improved, unemployment is still a specter haunting America. It might even be haunting you, humble Brokelyn reader and person just trying to make it in this stupid world. Or you might just not have a job by choice. Don’t feel too bad though, you’re not alone, as shown by The Upshot’s latest number-heavy study where they broke down how 294 nonemployed Americans spent their days, as broken down by gender and what exactly they do all day. It’s what you might expect: looking for jobs, watching TV, sleeping on odd schedules and taking care of people. What we want to know is, does this mirror your reality? (more…)

The New Year is rapidly approaching, people, and how do you want to spend yours? If your answer was “uncomfortably shifting around in an interview that could change my whole life,” then have I got good news for you! Now is the time to get out there and find the job you were meant to, while HR managers are still drunk from their holiday parties and everyone important is vacationing on an expensive island, and I’m here to point you in the right direction with this list of the best jobs up for grabs in New York, some of the last of 2014.

You’ll have to show more energy than this though. via Facebook

Do you love cats, but can’t get paid for said love because you lack a veterinary license? Well, hold off on printing that bootleg one off, because beyond getting you in to a ton of legal trouble, there’s another job out there for you. Meow Parlour, New York City’s first permanent cat cafe, is hiring cat-loving staff to work both their bakery and their cat cafe. Finally, a job that combines the frustration of baking with the frustration of cleaning up cat shit! (more…)

Is this you? We’ve got a job for you

Hey, are you one of those slick young Millennials who’s been conning Olds into thinking they don’t know how Twitter and Tumblr and Ello and Vine and Facebook and Instagram and That work? Well great, because while one day your job will probably be farmed out to an intern from a younger generation, for now there are jobs for you that pay and have benefits. Like this social media coordinator gig at the New York Post you should try to get that job while it still exists. (more…)

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.
