I'm quite reluctant about using this blog for things like this, but my team all assures me that a once or twice a year use of this sort will not compromise or cheapen the blog.
You'll get what nobody else gets: the context. Leanna Hale Barth was an intern nearly a decade ago, married an apprentice, Eric, and the two of them joined our team full time. They live on the farm and are now as important to Polyface as any Salatin. Eric is apprentice manager and Leanna has been inventory manager for several years.
They have two children, 4 and 2, and another one is on the way in late January. With those increased responsibilities, Leanna realizes she cannot continue the inventory responsibilities she's held. She will continue to be ultimately in charge, but she needs an assistant to do the lifting and hands-on working she's been doing. Furthermore, our shipping and packing is increasing to the point she couldn't do it all by herself anymore anyway.
So this seemed like a good time to open up a slot for a new team member on our permanent staff. That's the background, and here's the plan. We welcome any and all interest. Thank you for indulging this use of the blog. My apologies.
