A few years back I was up for a job in the Bahamas. There was an opening for Executive Director of the Treasure Cay Community Foundation. They don’t even have a website. The job paid $50K and came with free housing.
I was actually pretty qualified for the job, having played a key role in building a rural community foundation in Northern CA and having worked at one of the world’s largest community foundations in Silicon Valley. I’m actually kind of good at the whole philanthropy/community-building thing.
I sent in my resume and cover letter and heard back that I was in the running. Then, they went radio silent and I never heard from them again.
At that point, I hadn’t even caught a bonefish. I had never even been to the Bahamas. What a ride that would have been.
