Welcome to Creative Jobs This Week, which is new this month. From here on out, job opportunities won’t be published in The Weekly Wrap. They’ll be published separately on Fridays.
This is not an attempt to turn into an all-out jobs board. But people are always looking for opportunities and I come across quite a few most weeks, so why not share?
I’ll try to avoid listing low-paying, low-quality work. But please keep in mind that some companies don’t say upfront what they pay. And if I ask and they don’t respond, I’ll make a judgment call.
So without further ado, please dig in and be prosperous!
