HAD to share this…it’s a dream job for someone who can travel 50-75% of the time!

On the surface it sounds phenomenal! But if you’ve lived for a job with even 50% travel, you’ve experienced the strain years of that travel places on families. (“Is Dad home this week?”)

The link takes me to a job description listing “Travel: less than 10%”

Funny, the job requires attention to detail, but the overview description?
"The Production Coordinator handles the responsibilities related to the production and layout of the MICHLEIN guides as well as oversight of the photography used in all digital and print products. "

The site seems to pull up the jobs weird, the inspector description below:
