THE ‘HELP’ ROLE ($45,000 – $50,000)

TheHelpRole.png

The song “Help!” by the Beatles … was written by John Lennon, in 1965.
It’s ranked 29th on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All-Time.

In an interview with Playboy magazine … Lennon explained the inspiration behind the lyrics was fuelled by the stress he was experiencing following the band’s meteoric rise to fame. “I was fat and depressed and I was crying out for help!”

EyeinSky.png

For those brazen enough to attempt a casino heist … the results are almost always fruitless.  And, while many elaborate schemes have been hatched over the years … very, very few have resulted in a prosperous haul.

That said … Bill Brennan, a clean-cut 34-year-old from Pennsylvania … is the exception to that rule … and the simplicity of his plan left both security and police detectives scratching their heads!

On September 22, 1992, Mr. Brennan reported to work as a floor cashier at the Stardust Casino in Las Vegas … just as he had been doing for the previous 4 years.

As usual, Bill worked the first half of his shift but … when his lunch break rolled around, he grabbed his gym bag (filled with $500,000) … strolled past security … out the front door … and for all intents and purposes … vanished from the face of the earth!

The most successful robbery in Las Vegas history!

THE ‘EXECUTIONER’ ROLE – UX DESIGNER ($65,000 – $85,000)

SIGN - MISSED OPPORTUNITY

In the late 1700’s, in Roscommon, Ireland lived a woman named Betty, and her son. Although she was despairingly poor, Betty was literate … and she taught her son to read and write.

She would constantly remind her son that only money could bring him happiness in this world … and when he was finally old enough … she encouraged him to leave Ireland … and earn his fortunes in America!

Years later, a well-dressed man, looking for a place to say …  knocked at Betty’s door. She opened her home to him, and later that night … as he lay sleeping … Betty crept into his room and plunged a knife into his heart!

As she rummaged through his belongings (looking for money), she discovered this man was, in fact, her son!

Overcome with the horror of her actions, Betty stumbled into the street … confessing her guilt. She was arrested, stood trial and was condemned to death – by hanging!

On the day of her execution … as Betty and several other criminals were being led into the yard … they were informed the executioner had “called in sick” … and the sheriff was refusing to execute them himself.

Seizing the opportunity … Betty asked that her life be spared and in return, she’d hang the prisoners herself!

The sheriff agreed and Betty immediately got to work. So capable was “Lady Betty” that she was appointed Roscommon’s Official Hang Woman … a job with a yearly salary … as well room and board!

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?

THE ‘DONNA’ ROLE – ($40,000 – $45,000)

Position Filled Logo

Does the name Donna Paulsen mean anything to you?
If not … she’s a fictional character on the popular TV series – Suits.
Donna plays Harvey Specter’s highly capable … ultra-organized … and exceptionally effective legal assistant.

(Technically … she was promoted to COO this season … but that’s beside the point.)

Donna never sacrifices quality in order to scratch a ‘to-do’ off her list.
She’s process oriented … with an urgency that has her constantly contemplating what more she can do to ‘advance the cause’!

The responsibilities of the Office Assistant are practically too many to even list!
The essence of the role is to support the firm in every facet of their business.
The attitude required is … ‘no job is too big or too small’.

You don’t need to be a legal secretary … you simply need to the right work ethic!

  • Prepare files and documentation for calls and client meetings
  • Make travel arrangements, restaurant reservations and manage calendars
  • Prepare first drafts of correspondence and documents
  • Prepare billing statements
  • Schedule client calls and meetings

Wicked attention to detail!
A ridiculous sense of urgency … and creativity
The ability to ‘get the job done’ … period
