We are absolutely tickled pink over news of job opening at Baha Mar.
Not so long ago, Candy Evans, founder and publisher of CandysDirt.com and SecondShelters.com, sang like a bird when telling us all about Baha Mar, a much-anticipated multi-billion resort in the Bahamas. As luck would have it, Baha Mar is hiring a CFO.
This CFO has nothing to do with accounting. Baha Mar is hiring a Chief Flamingo Officer. It’s a nest-level kind of opportunity.
Yes, this means the ideal candidate will actually get paid to run away to a tropical island. It would be quite the feather in your cap. However, before you throw together a resume on the fly, applicants won’t want to run afowl of Baha Mar’s stringent requirements.
The new CFO needs a degree in zoology or a related field, and at least five years of experience “in the care and husbandry of” flamingos. Husbandry?
SecondShelters.com is a SFW kind of blog. We don’t need to drag in the birds and the bees. Bottom line — the Chief Flamingo Officer is a person ready to spread his or her wings.
If this sounds like you, look no feather.
Baha Mar is acquiring a flock of flamingos to complement its animal sanctuary and “Explorer’s Club” geared towards children. It seems that right now, they don’t give a flock, but soon will. The new CFO will have a bird’s eye view of Baha Mar, including the “flamingo mansion” custom built for the prized national birds of the Bahamas.
So, if you are a bird of a feather, then by all means, apply. They say the early bird catches the worm, or in this case lands a plum new position at one of the best destinations in the world. My apologies if the bird jokes ruffled some feathers.
