FIRE IN THE HOLE (OTE: $115,000 – $120,000)

The term “fire in the hole” is a common warning that an explosive detonation within a confined space, is about to happen.

The phrase originated with miners, who needed to warn their fellow workers that a charge had been set and they should take cover.

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Not much really.

That said … our transportation industry client is looking for a dynamite sales hunter to light-up their territory in either Halifax or Moncton!


Our client is expanding their team in Eastern Canada and believes; the best hunters aren’t very good farmers!
