Maverick Collective? How great is that?

Hello 2016! We hope it's a job-come-true kind of year for everyone, and we plan to bring you some great finds to help make that happen.

Before you charge forward into the new listings, we'd like to note that, in addition to Friday's run of previously noted opportunities closing this week, we unearthed a larger-than-expected roster of opportunities in the otherwise sleepy and shortened weeks ahead of the Christmas & New Year's breaks, so we'd suggest scrolling back if you've been away from your job-searching & -browsing for a bit.

Good luck and happy hunting!
