We don’t have a specific consumer/retail group, you come in as a generalist and find your way into the right partner group :) I’d say networking via your Alma mater to get a referral is the best way

Sure? Depends on people but I usually ignore most of them. More likely to respond if 1) you explain why you want to hop and 2) why you think would be a good fit and 3) you’re at a company that I think you might have a shot (B4, competitor, or known start up)

Might be an unpopular opinion but I’m not terribly thrilled with the new Halo Top ad. I’m all for body acceptance but part of the reason COVID hit the U.S. so hard is because of co-morbidities like obesity. There has to be a line btw “real” bodies and not celebrating a state that causes so many medical issues - Ie overweight without the medical definition of very obese. Do you think brands have gone too far in the other direction?
