THE ‘ANNIE EDSON TAYLOR’ ROLE – Pharmacy Specialist (OTE: $100,000 – $110,000 + BONUS)


In 1829, William ‘Red’ Hill, Jr. strapped himself into a barrel and went over the Niagara Falls.

72 years later, in 1901 … Annie Edson Taylor went over the same falls … in a barrel of her own.

Annie was successful … escaping with her life.
Unfortunately … ‘Red’ was not!

What does this have to do with our latest role?
Well … not much, really!

That said … our client is looking for someone who can emulate the success of Annie, and not the failure of ‘Red’.

Naturally … you won’t be expected to go over the Falls in a barrel … but … you will be expected to perform some amazing feats as they relate to the following job description!
