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

Hanging Rope

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?
Well … nothing, really.

THE ‘OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS’ ROLE (OTE: $82,500+)

Position Filled Logo

Growing up in my neighborhood, there came a time … usually around the age of 10, when you longed to graduate from being looked at as a little kid … to having what we considered to be the ultimate ‘street cred’.

That rite of passage was none other than … ‘Nicky-Nicky 9 Doors’!

‘Nicky-Nicky 9 Doors’ (also known as … ‘Ding-Dong-Ditch’) had 4 simple rules;

RULE #1:
It had to ‘go down’ on a Saturday night … and only after dark.
(If you had to be home “when the street lights came on” … you effectively disqualified yourself).

RULE #2:
You couldn’t just knock on the screen door … it had to be the ‘real’ door!
(Having to open the screen door wasted precious seconds … elevating the odds of getting caught).

RULE #3:
You had to knock 3 times and clearly say the word ‘steamboat’ in between knocks.
(A combination of ringing the doorbell while knocking would elevate you to legend status)!

RULE #4:
You couldn’t pick the house … that was decided for you, and the house usually fell into one of three categories;

It was the house everyone thought was ‘haunted’ … the house with two ferocious pit bulls or, … God forbid … Mr. Watson’s place!
(For the record … no one actually knew Mr. Watson’s real life story but the stories we’d heard as kids would paralyze you simply by having to walk by his house … much less having to make the trip to his porch)!

So … what does this have to do with my latest role? Nothing really.
That said … if you think about it … ‘Nicky-Nicky 9 Doors’ was my initiation into the world of cold-calling.
