Now Hiring: Stumptown, Cake Pops, and more

So many cake pops, so little time.
So many cake pops, so little time.

Welcome back to another episode of “Let’s Get You a New Job!” After scouring the internet, breaking the fourth wall, calling a few places and doing the classic “ask around” we’ve compiled a list of jobs we think could be suitable for you. Have at it, people, and happy freaking humpday.

On Location Tours , one of the largest tv and movie sight seeing touring companies in America, is hiring! No, they are not looking for tour guides or Carrie Bradshaw lookalikes for their Sex and the City Tour (my literal dream), they hare hiring an entry level Account Marketing Manager. If hired, your main job would be to make sure hotel concierge staff are sending their guests to On Location Tours for all things sight seeing; think cold calling, but in person. Candidates should be confident, outgoing, have the typical “excellent communication and organizational skills” and have a four year degree – of anything. 

Ever wanted to work with coffee but feared the barista life because you just know in your heart-of-hearts you wouldn’t be able to create latte art under any circumstance? Well, today is your lucky day people because Stumptown Coffee Roasters is hiring and there is zero latte art required. Join the team as a Wholesale Customer Support Associate .  On the job, you’ll do stuff like oversee customer orders, co-manage the inventory system, and update wholesale customer contact information. There is a huge stress on “people skills” as you will be the face, and voice, representing Stumptown for wholesale clients. You should be passionate about coffee, be competent in MS Office and Google apps, have some weekend availability and be able to “sit continuously at a computer.” Potential perks: all the Stumptown your body can handle.

Are you #blessed with the ability to be “crafty?” Can you look at an unfrosted cupcake and think, “yeah, I can totally paint a version of Starry Night on that thing?” Do you enjoy ingesting sugar? If you answered yes to all – or honestly, one – of these questions, then the Baker Cake Pop Decorator position at NY Cake Pops is for you. This is an entry level, full time position, but previous baking/cake decorating skills are not required. You should be creative, willing to learn, and have a NYS Food Handlers license (don’t sweat it if you don’t have one; they are relatively easy to get). Love for “sweets and all things cute” is also a requirement.

You’re sitting around at your apartment or in your crappy cubicle at the job you hate, when BAM, it hits you: The Brooklyn Academy of Music is hiring. Specifically, they’re hiring a new PR person to hype up their BAMcinematek campaigns, like their film festival and other cool events at BK’s fanciest movie house. You’ll be doing the standard PR stuff like reaching out to reporters to pitch stories, write press releases and making sure the coddled horrible press gets to see their advance screenings. If you’ve got three years of experience in film PR, are willing to work weekends and of course have great communication skills (duh), apply today.

You there, person with web writing experience. Do you have insghts, terrible horrible insights into the millennial mind? Do you know what’s trending with disturbing speed, like some kind of hashtag precog? Well then millennial news site Mic wants you to join their team as their trending news writer and write 2 to 4 stories per day, from short blog posts to longer features based on what’s hot on the internet. Just know that they don’t want your hot takes in the place of analysis but they do want you to have a “terrifying” work ethic.

That’s it for now, Brokesters. Have a good one and tune in next time!
