NEW YORK (MainStreet) — Can’t find any job postings that seem like they’re worth applying to? Don’t worry, MainStreet has you covered.
Each week we scour through job boards and company websites to round up the coolest openings available. Who knows, one of these just might be your next dream job. Here are the six coolest job openings we found this week:
Mobile Engineer at Pinterest
Pinterest is the hottest social networking website right now and they’re hiring. The startup is looking for a mobile engineer to help develop apps for the iPhone, iPad and Android devices. If that’s not up your alley, the website is also looking for product designers, software engineers and business specialists, among other positions. All of these jobs are based in their headquarters in Palo Alto, Calif., and will help you make a name for yourself in Silicon Valley.
Line Cook at the Four Seasons
If you’re trying to jumpstart your career in the restaurant industry, there’s no better place to do it than the restaurant of the renowned Four Seasons hotel in midtown Manhattan. The Four Seasons is looking for a line cook with one or two years’ experience who is prepared for the pressure-filled environment that comes with working in a top New York City restaurant. For those who have a little more experience, there is also an opening for a sous chef in the same restaurant as well as at the Four Seasons restaurant in Los Angeles.
Senior Editor at The New Yorker
Few positions are as coveted in the journalism world as being a senior editor at The New Yorker, one of the most prestigious magazines in the country. Earlier this month, Nicholas Thompson decided to forfeit his position as senior editor of the magazine to head The New Yorker’s website instead. So now there’s an opening for a new senior editor. Needless to say, every man, woman, child and iPad with a dream of making it in journalism will consider applying, but if you’re interested in adding your name to the list, we suggest digging throug the magazine's masthead to find the right person to contact.

The National Wildlife Federation is looking for someone to help coordinate its online marketing campaigns using email services, social media and other tools. The position, which is based in Reston, Va., will give you valuable marketing experience and the satisfaction of helping an important organization spread its message. It’s like killing two birds with one stone – just don’t put it that way in your interview, since this agency is charged with protecting wildlife.
Aerospace Engineer for NASA
What could be cooler than working for NASA? The space agency is looking for a senior aerospace engineer to test the flight systems on their space crafts to make sure they meet the requirements. Not only do you get to put NASA on your resume, but the position pays six figures –
the starting salary is between $105,211 and $155,500 a year, depending on your experience.
