Employees of Indigo Wild: must love dogs
"I am thankful people are still showering in this economy!" says Emily Voth, owner of this natural and organic hygiene-products company, which sells to large retailers including Whole Foods. The company, most known for its Zum bar soap, is currently looking to fill positions in marketing, sales and public relations, as well as another soap maker. The 40-person company hopes to attract creative, happy types with lots of energy. "Typically a type-B person is not going to work out here," Voth says.
Many employees at Indigo Wild are diehard dog lovers so other dog owners, or those involved in dog rescue, will have an advantage. Also, arriving equipped with a résumé and a pen is mandatory, Voth said, as is sending a thank-you note following the interview. If it's written on paw-print stationary, even better.
