THE ‘ALL HANDS ON DECK’ ROLE ($72,500+)

AllHandsOnDeck

Historically, and in the naval sense, the term ‘hands’ referred to the sailors on a vessel.
In the event of a storm … the ship’s captain would determine its severity and how much assistance was required to navigate through the storm.

When he shouted “all hands, on deck” … it was a signal that the situation required all the help, every crewmember could muster … to do whatever was required.

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

That said, our client is looking to capitalize on their establishment’s momentum. As such, they’re looking for a General Manager with an “all hands, on deck” attitude … to take their business to the next level.

THE GIANT ROLE ($97,500)

GiantMississauga

Born in Alton, Illinois on February 22, 1918 … Robert Wadlow appeared to be just like any other baby.
But … by the age of one, he was over 3 feet tall, and … by his eighth birthday … nearly twice that!

At 13 years-old, Robert was easily the tallest Boy Scout in the world … at a height of 7 feet, 4 inches.

In 1936, he joined the Ringling Brothers traveling circus and drew enormous crowds at his appearances.

In 1938, Robert agreed to be the spokesman for the International Shoe Company and as a perk … he received his shoes for free (size 37AA).

As a result of his extreme height … Robert suffered with a lack of feeling in his legs.
Refusing to use a wheelchair, he elected to wear special braces that allowed him to walk.

Tragically, at the age of 22 … one of his braces caused a blister which Robert didn’t notice (due to the lack of feeling in his legs).

This blister eventually led to an infection … and ultimately … to the premature death of the gentle, ‘Alton Giant’.

Robert’s last recorded measurement (18 days prior to his passing) was 8 feet, 11.1 inches!

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