Reply to THIS THREAD throughout the month with links to opportunities.
Please stick to jobs/employers you know/trust, vs any old thing out there. We'll keep them organized into a monthly thread.

I'll boost the thread again every week to resurface throughout the month.
Trade: your time for free yoga?
Hey friends. Posting from my moonlighting gig managing the front desk at Maha Yoga Studio (17th and Sansom). We're looking for a work-exchange staffer to man the desk 4:30-8:30 Thursday evenings. In exchange for your time, you get unlimited yoga classes for free! LMK if you're interested and I can tell you more.
Happy Continued-Existence Day! Wednesday is the 35th anniversary of that time Stanislov Petrov may have saved the whole world by deciding, on his own, NOT ONCE BUT TWICE, to ignore the incoming missile detection system that it was his job to respond to.
Self promotion, pondering Brett Kavanaugh
I was on my way to bed and I started to write a long Facebook post and then that turned into an essay on Medium, written in about 35 minutes and inspired by Brett Kavanaugh, Bill Cosby, and the fact that we can't seem to get away from shitty men.
Your signal boosts and claps appreciated.
@jillianivey it even just read that Toot to me.
Standing at 4th and South waiting for my Lyft because it’s clear a bus is never going to come, listening to the bouncer talking to two other dudes. They’re all about the same age. The topic: Dave Matthews band. One guy saw them live for the first time this summer. “Dudes, I was blown away.” Second guy has never heard of DMB. Third guy says: “man, you’re lucky you’ve never heard of them. I’m jealous of you.” Cant tell if I’ve stumbled into Goldilocks or Deathly Hallows.
@jillianivey I meant 16th. Good job, me.
Just having lunch by myself at the Real Food Eatery on 17th and not wanting to leave because the music here has me feeling overly nostalgic. Some selections:
Weezer—“The Sweater Song”
All-American Rejects—“Swing, Swing”
The Killers—“Change Your Mind”
In related news, I really miss making mixtapes.
Okay! Have the discount code. Anyone who's interested should enter JILLETANTE when they buy their tickets here: https://devops.icu/live-public-workshops/
Super loving the #originstory posts being shared - would love to see more women and POC on the tag as well!
Doesn’t need to be career focused, just share about how you came to discover something you love to do.
