The end is nigh! Wait, why are you throwing that trashcan through a window? Oh, I should have specified: The end of your less-than-ideal career is nigh! If you consider yourself to be a generally talented person with little-to-no body odor and killer workplace banter about the latest Game of Thrones episode, then there is no reason why you shouldn’t be out there working at the position of your dreams, or at least, not sitting at home all day.

To that end, we here at Brokelyn have yet again corralled some of the best career opportunities in New York just for you, because we care about your wellbeing. And the wellbeing of Mr. Whiskers.

Few things represent our modern city culture like brunch, bicycles, Brooklyn and the ability to siphon money from tourists who want to experience “Real New York,” so it makes sense that this sort of thing exists:  a Brooklyn-based bike tour company is now offering a “Brunch in Brooklyn” tour, so you can experience all the wonders of midday breakfast dining for just $65 a person. What a deal! (more…)
