THE ‘HAMBURGER’ ROLE ($45,000 – $55,000+)

hamburger role.jpg

Did you know … the word ‘hamburger’ originates from the town of Hamburg in Germany? The long and short of it goes something like this;

Way back in the 19th-century … German sailors brought back the idea of raw, shredded beef (known today, as beef tartare) … after trading with their counterparts in the Baltic provinces of Russia.

At some point … a local (and unnamed) German chef decided he’d throw in a bit of a ‘twist’ … and he cooked that beef!

And … the ‘hamburger’ was born!

THE ‘EYE IN THE SKY’ ROLE (OTE: $55,500 – $67,000)

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 ‘LAUNCHING PAD’ ROLE (OTE: $50,000 – $66,000+)

launchingpad.png

On March 23, 1965 … Gus Grissom and John Young blasted-off into space on the Gemini III capsule.

One of their objectives was to determine how astronauts could eat … ‘mess-free’ during space missions.

Apparently … the hazards of crumbs in space are substantial … as they can drift through the cabin and lodge themselves inside critical instrument panels. As such … the food on the Gemini III was humdrum … to say the least … consisting of squeezy tubes and small, plastic packages.

Unbeknownst to Grissom … one of John Young’s colleagues had stopped at a local deli to pick-up a Corned Beef on Rye. 2 hours into the mission … Young pulled the sandwich from his pocket … and handed it to Grissom.

After the first bite … they soon realized the resulting crumbs were not favourable in zero-gravity conditions! Needless to say, neither NASA nor Congress were amused. Young was severely reprimanded … and extensive regulations were put in place for future missions!

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Absolutely nothing!

THE ‘GEE THIS ROLE SMELLS TERRIFIC’ ROLE (OTE: $80,000)

GEE SMELLS TERRIFIC

Some of you may not remember the BiWay (or its biggest competitor … Bargain Harold’s) … but for a good decade of my life … it was virtually all I knew – because it was one of the only places my mother would shop!

As a point of reference … BiWay would have slotted in somewhere between a Dollar Store and Wal-Mart.

Given our Croatian roots, my mom was all about saving a buck. And, her ‘modus operandi’ was to choose items that were on sale.

Brand loyalty was non-existent and, as a result, I grew up washing my hair with everything from Beer Enriched Body-On-Tap (for Oily Hair) … to Short ‘n’ Sassy (for Dry Hair) … to Prell (for Permed Hair)!
Ultimately … if it was on sale … that was our choice!

For months and months … my sister Manda and I begged my mom to buy a shampoo everyone was talking about. We had seen the commercials … and simply had to have it. Each request was denied … until one fateful day when we walked into BiWay and saw a sign that read … “Gee Your Hair Smells Terrific – On Sale”!

Imagine our delight when my mother said we could each get our own bottle!
We used that shampoo sparingly … and I think we were able to stretch it out for almost a whole year!

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Well … nothing, really.
That said, our client’s offering is pretty terrific … and they’re looking for a Sales Executive to join their team in a hunter sales capacity.
