Job boards terrify me. So many fields. So many positions. So many questions: “Can I do that?” “What does a controller do anyway?” “Am I ‘comfortable with ambiguity’? Well, the ambiguity of this question scares me, so I guess not.”
Below are some of the most compelling job opportunities that have passed our desks recently. My suggestion? Before you read them, take a moment to prepare a few questions that you need to see answered in each job description, before the job descriptions dictate a set of questions for you.
