SUPERNOVA (OTE: $162,500)

Match and Fable Inc. - Toronto, ON, Canada

The word ‘supernova’ is an astronomical term for the super explosion of a star.

That explosion is unimaginably bright.

Sometimes … it’s brighter than the entire galaxy, itself!

Truth is … supernova explosions are extremely, extremely rare.

In fact, the last recorded supernova in our galaxy (the Milky Way) … happened more than 400 years ago.
The term ‘nova’ is also used to describe the explosion of a star … but a supernova has way more energy.

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role? 

Not much, really.

That said … Match and Fable is on the prowl for a Director of Culinary for one of our clients.

And … to be perfectly honest … a ‘nova’ level Director quite simply, won’t cut it.
