Skip's Edtech Jobs: November 18, 2023
Thank you for reading the EdSkipper, Skip’s newsletter about skipping from education to education-aligned careers. Every Saturday, I send out a list of curated remote jobs. Premium subscribers receive two additional emails a month with industry insights and advice to help you apply more competitively to the jobs you’re passionate about.
I hope that you have a wonderful time eating yummy food, spending time with people you care about, and resting a bit from the hectic pace of life.
I’m looking forward to hosting Thanksgiving this year for family and a few friends. My husband and I love to cook so we always have a fairly elaborate spread. He’s also vegan so it’s traditional-with-a-twist: seitan roulade, vegan gravy and stuffing, brussel sprouts with shiitake ‘bacon,’ delicata squash biscuits, and some kind of squash dish. I’m always iffy on what squash dish to cook — people tend to skip it unless there are marshmallows on it!
Every year, I make a vegan charcuterie board. Vegan spreadable cheeses are a niche product that are starting to taste pretty good. Last year, I tried my hand at vegan carpaccio (aka marinated portabella mushrooms), and it was delicious. And, the rest of any charcuterie board is really vegan anyway — nuts, crackers, fruit, and olives/pickles. This year I might try to learn how to cook spiced nuts!
Since I’ll be busy cooking (and so are most recruiters), I’ll be taking next week off from job posting (here and on the job board) as well as from the Saturday newsletter.
Stay tuned after Thanksgiving for the next premium newsletter as well as the regular Saturday scoop.
~I hope you find some fantastic jobs to apply to this weekend and have a restful holiday,
