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.
