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.

Specifically … they’re looking for a Pharmacy Manager to strategically guide their Operations team to “make some wonderful music” of their own!

THE ‘JOAN OF ARC’ ROLE ($100,000 – $115,000 + BONUS)

JOAN OF ARC ROLE

Joan was born to a peasant family … and at the age of 12, she began to have ‘visions’.
In one particular vision … the voice of God instructed her to renew the French nation … so she travelled to the uncrowned Dauphin of France and advised him to reclaim his French throne and overthrow the English.

Long story short, in 1431 … 17 year-old Joan mounted a stallion and led her French troops at the siege of Orleans … earning notoriety when the siege was lifted after 9 days … and leading to Charles VII ascension to the throne!

If the story ended there … it would be one of the best UnderDog stories ever!
However, after being captured in battle, Joan was tried for heresy … and burned at the stake!

THE ‘BIG LOU’ WINDSOR PHARMACY MANAGER ROLE ($132,000)

THE BIG LOU WINDSOR

For the record … there is no evidence anyone ever called him Big Lou.
However … there is plenty of evidence supporting the notion Louis Hébert was Canada’s first apothecary … and the first European to farm here!

In 1617 … Louis, his wife and three children sold most of their belongings in France … and boarded a ship for Quebec.

Upon their arrival … Louis’ knowledge as an apothecary (along with his small store of grain) … proved a god send to the sick and starving … in his new home.

Louis was the first settler to sow wheat and vegetables in Québec … but he had 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. Meaning, he had to hand over all the produce and grain he harvested during that time!

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

One day, in 1627 … Louis slipped on a patch of ice … and died from the resulting injuries!

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