THE ‘CONDUCTOR’ ROLE (PHARMACY MANAGER) ($115,000 – $120,000+)

the conductor role

We’ve all seen conductors stand in front of their orchestra … waving their arms in the air. However … most of us don’t appreciate the true value of their contribution.

In fact … the conductor’s primary purpose is to keep the orchestra coordinated, so each musician knows when to start and stop playing – at the exact right times.

Interestingly enough, the radius of the conductor’s motions (the exaggerated, circular flailing of the arms) appears to have zero impact on perceived beat.  Apparently … it’s the velocity and acceleration of their motions that are the key factor in determining beat!

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Well … not much, really.

That said … our client (who happens to be a national pharmacy chain) is looking for a conductor of sorts.

THE ‘CAT IN THE BAG’ ROLE (CLINICAL CONSULTING PHARMACIST) VICTORIA, BC

CAT IN THE BAG ROLE

You’ve definitely heard the phrase … and you know it has to do with revealing a secret … but how did it originate?

Well … sometime in or around the 1700s, people bought and sold piglets from one another – in bags.

Every so often … certain underhanded individuals would try and slip a few cats into the bag (since cats were worth far less than piglets) … to try and increase profitability!

If a discerning buyer was to open the bag and let a cat out … the scam was exposed!

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