The job market sucks. My friends are getting laid off left and right. Wouldn’t it be great if you could walk to work? A reader emailed me this craigslist posting suggesting I blog about it and it got me thinking that if I can help even one Greenpointer get a job (or a Greenpoint business find an employee) then it’s all good in the hood. So when I come across any openings around the neighborhood, I’ll be sure to post them and feel free to email me any job openings you know of or even if your a local looking for a job, hit me up and maybe I can help a few folks out.

  1. There was also a help wanted sign in the window of an office on Manhattan Ave, I think between Noble and Milton (or Milton and Greenpoint Ave), west side of street, a doctor’s office. Looks like a cardiovascular doctor and I think it says affiliated with Beth Israel hospital on the window.
