⚠️ THREAD! Who's Hiring ? October Edition.
Please stick to jobs/employers you know/trust, vs any old thing out there. We'll keep them organized into a monthly thread. Non-jawns.club replies will be removed.
I'll boost the thread again every week to resurface throughout the month.
meet the first mod team of jawns.club!
These fine people have been pitching in to spread the word, help welcome newbies, answer questions, and keep me on the level. ❤️
They will also help review reported activity for abuse and keep this place safe and friendly.
We are still figuring things out but for now y'all should get to know them!
I highly recommend exploring around here.
Since there's no algorithm deciding what it thinks you should see, it takes a little more upfront work to populate your home timeline. But it's not hard and the payoff is pretty fast. Two tips! ✨
Tips for all of the jawns.club newbies:
Check out the "local" timeline here. It shows posts from everyone currently on jawns.club, which means it's all Philly peeps.
This is the magic. It's not a fast moving firehose so you can comfortably explore it.

The production quality is amazing and Kevin is one of the best interviewers I’ve sat with.
Normally, ReplyAll is at the top of my “pause other shows and start listening as soon as it shows up in my feed” podcast list.
