THE ‘KRAMPUS’ ROLE (OTE: $165,000 – $180,000+)

KRAMPUS

As December rolls around in North America, children’s fascination with Christmas and Santa Claus is all a buzz!

But … as our children contemplate the gifts they’ll ask for from Santa … their counterparts in Eastern Europe are faced with a far different scenario.

On December 5th, before they hit the sheets … children place a boot outside their house. While they eagerly anticipate the arrival of St. Nicholas and his treats … they also fear a visit from the dreaded Krampus!

Essentially, Krampus is the Christmas Devil.
Half-goat … half-man, … this demon’s agenda ‘flips the script’ of Old St. Nick!
Krampus’ mission is to search out the naughty children and administer appropriate punishment.

In modest cases, this involves a ‘simple’ whipping with a wooden stick.
In more severe scenarios … Krampus is said to toss the worst children in his sack … dragging them to his lair … where he devours them for his Christmas Dinner!

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Well … (and you probably guessed it) … absolutely nothing at all.

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 ‘LOUIS HEBERT’ PHARMACY MANAGER ROLE ($120,000 – $130,000)

Louis Hebert

Did you know Louis Hebert is considered Canada’s first apothecary … as well as the first European to farm here?

In 1617 … Louis, his wife and their three children sold most of their belongings in Paris, France … and boarded a ship destined for Quebec … (without iPads or Netflix to keep them entertained).

Upon their arrival … Louis’ knowledge as an apothecary … as well as his small store of grain … was an absolute godsend to the sick and starving … in his new ‘hood’.

Louis was the first settler to sow wheat and vegetables in Quebec … but he was forced into a bit of a ‘raw deal’.

You see, as a condition of his coming to “New France’ … Louis was indentured to the Canada Company for 2 years. This meant he had to hand over all the produce and grain he harvested during that time!

Once those 2 difficult years passed … he was awarded his own parcel of land and named a Lord for his contribution!

Unfortunately … one day in 1627 … Louis slipped on a patch of ice … and died from his injuries!
