Happy 4th of July! You know we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to talk about fireworks, so we’re going to take a look at Phantom Fireworks and what kind of job opportunities they have. The fireworks industry is a tough one to be in, because those silly things called laws always seem to get in the way. For instance, my home state of Connecticut recently confiscated half a million dollars’ worth of fireworks from B.J. Alan Company (Phantom Fireworks’ parent company) because the amount of pyrotechnic mixture in the fireworks exceeded the state regulations of 100 grams per item. Talk about raining on someone’s parade – er – fireworks show.
To be honest, most of the job opportunities currently offered by Phantom Fireworks aren’t going to launch (pun intended) your entry-level career, but who else were we going to feature on the 4th? Your college degree probably isn’t going to be put to its best use as a Tent Operator or Cashier, so maybe you should try submitting a resume for an unlisted position. Phantom’s corporate office is in Youngstown, OH and resumes and cover letters can be sent to email@example.com. There is a listing for an Executive Secretary which maybe worth a look for some of you, but we’re hoping that a reader with a background in chemical engineering takes charge and convinces Phantom to hire him or her for a product development job or something cool like that. There have to be some really interesting jobs in the fireworks industry, but, unfortunately, we couldn’t find any listed online for the 4th.
Now go blow some stuff up… if it’s legal in your state. I will be playing with sparklers that contain less than 100 grams of pyrotechnic mixture.
