THE ‘WALLY PIPP’ ROLE (OTE: $120,000 – $135,000+)

WallyPipp.png

On June 2, 1925, the New York Yankees were on a five-game losing streak … and their miserable record had them slotted in second-to-last place in the American League. Upon arriving at Yankee Stadium, one of their star players – Wally Pipp, was complaining about a headache … and asked the team trainer for 2 aspirins.

The team’s manager, Miller Huggins happened to overhear the discussion and said … “Wally, take the day off … we’ll try that kid Gehrig at first today … and get you back in there tomorrow.”

This would mark the first game of Lou Gehrig’s career … and he would go on to play an incredible 2,130 consecutive games … over the next 14 seasons!

Years later, Wally Pipp would go on to say … “I took the two most expensive aspirin in history.”

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

That said … the term “carpe diem” was never more relevant.

Lou Gehrig seized the opportunity to showcase his value … and if you’re a senior sales professional who is ready to step into sales management … this may be your opportunity to do the same!

THE ‘EXECUTIONER’ ROLE ($97,000 – $108,000)

ExecutionerRole.png

In the late 1700’s, in Roscommon, Ireland … a woman named Betty and her son lived in horrible poverty.  Although uncommon for someone raised in such conditions, Betty was literate … so she taught her son to read and write. She would constantly remind her son that only money would bring him happiness … and when he was old enough … he left Roscommon to find his fortune – in America!

Years later, one dark evening, a tall, well-dressed gentleman knocked on Betty’s door asking for a place to stay. She opened her house to him, but later that night, as he lay sleeping … Betty crept quietly into his room … and murdered the man for his money!

As Betty sat rifling through the man’s belongings, she discovered this ‘stranger’ was in fact … her son!

Overcome by the horror of her actions, Betty ran screaming into the streets … 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 personally perform the executions.

Taking the term ‘carpe diem’ to a whole new level …Betty asked that her life be spared and in return, she’d hang the rest of the prisoners herself!

The sheriff agreed … and Betty got to work! “Lady Betty” was so efficient and capable … that she was appointed Roscommon’s Hang Woman … a job with a yearly salary … as well room and board!

THE ‘DYNAMITE’ ROLE (OTE: $135,000 – $144,000)

MF SIGN - HATE TO TELL YOU - THIS BABY'S GONE

While the words ‘dynamite’ and ‘TNT’ are often used interchangeably … they are absolutely not the same thing!

Back in the 1860’s … Alfred Nobel (a Swedish chemist and engineer) was hard at work … searching for an alternative to nitroglycerine (as it is incredibly volatile).

Nobel’s objective was to create a stable product that wouldn’t blow people to smithereens by simply handling it! By combining nitroglycerin, sorbents and stabilizers … Alfred created dynamite!

(Interestingly … an explosion at his plant killed his brother … so maybe it wasn’t that safe … after all?)

TNT, on the other hand … was discovered by Joseph Wilbrand in Germany in 1863.
It is made by adding 3 NO2 groups (from nitric acid) to toluene.

And, while TNT isn’t as powerful as dynamite … it is far more stable and difficult to ignite … making it a safer (albeit, more toxic) option!

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

That said … our client is looking for a talented healthcare sales professional with explosive new business and account management skills to join their team in the GTA!

THE ‘3 DOLLAR PISTOL’ ROLE (OTE: $160,000 – $170,000+)

M&F - 3 DOLLAR PISTOL BANNER

Admittedly … not a term heard often these days.
That is … unless you hang around Match and Fable’s offices!

One of its meanings refers to something being ‘hot’ … as in, attractive or desirable.
For example, “Match and Fable is hotter than a 3-dollar pistol”!

Where did the term originate?
Well … back in the mid-1800’s … gun manufacturers like; Remington, Smith & Wesson and Winchester were selling a boat load of pistols.

As is often the case … counterfeiters recognized an opportunity to capitalize on the opportunity and make a quick buck.

To keep their pistol prices super low … their manufacturing processes and standards were naturally, extremely shoddy.  Mismatched parts resulted in misaligned chambers and barrels … causing a slew of problems when fired!

In fact, in some cases … these pistols would actually explode in the shooter’s hand!

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

That said … this role is absolutely hotter than a 3-dollar pistol … and won’t last long!

THE ‘GENGHIS KHAN’ ROLE (OTE: $109,000 – $119,000+)

THE GENGHIS KHAN ROLE

About 835 years ago (give or take a few years) … a 20-year old Mongolian named Genghis Khan began forming a large army with the intention of obliterating the tribes in Northeast Asia and uniting them under his empire.

Known to have been exceptionally ruthless … he would go on to create the Mongol Empire … the largest kingdom in the world – prior to the British Empire!

One of Khan’s peculiar wishes was that upon his death … his body be buried in a location where no one could ever find his remains.

When Genghis eventually met his demise … a group of slaves (escorted by Khan’s soldiers) carried his body deep into the wilderness. Upon burial … the soldiers massacred every single slave … to ensure Genghis Khan’s final resting place would remain a secret.

Little did these soldiers know what fate awaited them once they returned from their successful mission!

These young men were then also murdered in order to be 100% positive the exact burial site was not known to a single, living soul.

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s role?
Absolutely zilch!

POSITION:                ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE
REPORTS TO:           VP, SALES
