Would you want this job?

     Wow, who is going to answer that ad?

     The job title is “Family Service Counselor”.

     It could be an ad written for just about any cemetery or funeral home in the country.  These positions are filled with some of the most caring men and women in your community; and maybe even a friend or relative of yours works as a counselor. Almost all of them never knew that the job existed up until the time they answered the ad for the job.
