Although the economy hasn’t fully recovered from the big financial downturn in recent years, things are getting back on the right track and aquarium companies are starting to hire once more. And our friends at Ecoxotic have a new job opening for someone looking to break into the sales side of the aquarium industry. They recently posted a Sales Assistant position on their website, which will process sales orders for business customers (fish stores and online vendors), work one-on-one with consumers to answer questions and solve problems, process warranty claims, participate in telemarketing, and pretty much anything else Ecoxotic needs from their sales department. The job posting doesn’t have any minimum requirements listed, but expect that a the ideal candidate would have a background in sales and some familiarity with the aquarium industry, or at least Ecoxotic’s LED gear. Additionally, Ecoxotic looks to hire someone local to Vista, California because that is where a majority of the sales service will take place.
More information can be found on Ecoxotic’s website, and we’ve included the job posting below.
