Have you ever heard of Cape Breton? It’s a small beautiful island in the east of Nova Scotia and they’ve got a big problem. The Farmer’s Daughter Country Market, which is the staple of this hidden gem, a bakery and a general story, want to expand their business. They’re booming and have everything they need to become bigger, but they lack the people to work for them. They’re already hired all the qualified local residents that needed a job and there’s no one left. So, they decided to post an ad on Facebook, a call out or all those who’re interested into moving to the countryside, lead a simpler, happier life, closer to nature.

BEAUTIFUL ISLAND NEEDS PEOPLE.
We can’t give you big money, but we can give you an awesome life. Our business is busy from May to December, with slower months January to April, so you can enjoy our amazing winters. We have lots of good ideas and we want to continue to build on our accomplishments but we don’t have enough hands to help.
We are located in a little village called Whycocomagh, which can be found in the middle (the heart) of Cape Breton. It is an area surrounded by beautiful mountains and the shining Bras d’Or lake where kayaks and canoes outnumber motorboats.
We are a true four-season climate and we love it that way. We are looking for people who are environmentally conscious, want to be part of a community and will see our business not as you work for us, but we all work together to create something to be proud of. If you take pride in being friendly, helpful, and positive and have skills in the food industry or customer service, then you are who we are looking for. We cannot offer you big money (wages in local small Cape Breton businesses are not high) but we can offer you a great incentive to come and try us out. One thing our business does have is LOTS of LAND.
If you decide this opportunity might fit your dreams and goals for a close to nature and community focused life, then we are willing to offer you 2 acres of woodland where you can immediately set up your tiny house or quaint cabin. Plus give you access to our farmland and other resources we have available. If you are still working with us after five years and we all still like each other after that time, then the land is yours for the cost of migrating it out and putting it in your name. Cape Breton is amazing but our population is decreasing. Corporate development has been seen as the solution in the past but that often comes at the expense of our environment. We think there is a better way.
If you are interested in this unique opportunity please email your resume along with a letter about yourself to firstname.lastname@example.org

They’ve already hired 3 families from British Columbia so the post has apparently drawn the attention they needed, but they said that they’ll be looking to hire 3 or 4 more in the spring. If you’re interested write them and send your resume to the e-mail address as instructed above.
