It's Jobstoberfest!

October's onset marks the best time of year at DCPA+CJ: Jobstoberfest!

What does that mean for you? Actually, probably not much, except that we usually have a little spring in our step this time of year, and perhaps that translates into a little more energy to bring you some pretty robust editions, like today's. Plus, we'll keep collating the weekend's Oktoberfest opportunities on Fridays.
