The news on the employment front is perking up, just slowly — the US lost fewer jobs in July than in June, and the unemployment rate dropped slightly.
But we know more progress needs to be made. That’s why each week Monitor staffers comb the job listings in search of interesting places to work. The most intriguing jobs we found this week are in Cedar Rapids, Neb.; Atlanta; Fairbanks, Alaska; Los Angeles; New York; Cranston, R.I.; Twin Falls, Idaho; and Tampa, Fla.
Got good taste? We have a job for you.
